Writing a good about page is a pig at the best of times, and for this one it’s even harder.
There’s a good chance you’re struggling to figure out what this site is about. Me too.
The closest I can come is this: it’s a site about people.
If you’re here then we’re probably connected in some way through my other work – perhaps you’ve been to my first major site (tipsforlawyers.com) or seen my marketing stuff over at digitalmarketingforlawyers.com. I’ve got other sites around the place, but you probably haven’t seen those.
This is the site where I put the things that don’t really belong anywhere else.
Truthfully, I just enjoy writing and sharing my thoughts. Sometimes people like them, sometimes they hate them, and sometimes I have no idea because they sail through the world unnoticed by anybody.
As I’ve struggled with what “niche” this particular blog is supposed to be, I’ve gone through a few variations – one for creatives, one for authors, one for just writing stuff generally, one for “finding your best self” kind of topics.
But truthfully I just like thinking about people, myself included. I enjoy seeing how I react to situations, think about problem solving, dream about the future, deal with the past, and whether other people do it the same as me or not.
As I write this out loud, it makes more sense to me as the words fall onto the page. My history in law and in marketing ultimately revolves around understanding (or trying to understand) people and how they work individually and collectively.
And so this is a site about people. It’s thinking about how we think. It’s learning to learn. It’s listening to how we hear and understand. Doing this regularly helps me be a better father, a better husband, and overall a more self-aware human being.
I hope you enjoy my words.
