What’s the Point of This Blog?

Earnest Parenting.com logo

So I’m here at SOBCon08 learning about the art of business blogging, and the challenge this morning was to come up with a statement in ten words or less that tells what I do. Here’s what I came up with:

I help parents solve discipline problems and build loving homes.

That’s my goal, anyway. I like how distilling my purpose down so clearly will help me focus, and in retrospect I can see that I’ve been a bit blurry on that up until now. I’m looking forward to where this will take us.

Earnest Parenting: encouragement and discipline for all.

The editor-in-chief of Earnest Parenting, Amy is the mother of two sets of twin boys. Yes, they drive her crazy, but they also make her laugh occasionally. Amy enjoys writing, quilting, reading, and working on her burgeoning cyber empire.

    I love it, Amy!

    When I wrote the tagline for The Writing Journey, I realize that was, essentially, my mission statement: “Helping Internet Writers To Achieve Their Dreams.”

    Now, every time I write a post, it is with that in mind. Even if I’m writing about Twitter, it’s in that context.

    First off, great ‘tagline.’ It tells me exactly what you do. And since I’m a parent myself, if I was facing those problems in our family, I would know immediately that you might be able to help me. Great work.

    Second, it was lovely meeting you at SOBCon. What a surprise to meet a fellow Michigander. I’ll be watching your blog, that’s for sure.

    Hi Dawud! Thanks for visiting. I’ll be following your progress as well.

    hi amy.
    I was at SOBcon but we didn’t meet, at least as far as I know.

    I like your 10 words statement. It is clear and focusing and gets at discipline from the love side rather than the stereotypical side.

    Hi Jon,

    Actually I think we did meet briefly on Saturday afternoon but someone called me away from the conversation shortly after we shook hands. You introduced yourself as having come with Chris, as I recall. 🙂 Unless I’m confusing you with someone else.

    I took a peek at your blog just now. Interesting stuff! I think I’ll hang around and read for a bit.
