Going All In

About two weeks ago, I looked at my blog and shook my head because once again my postings had become sporadic. Mainly because my blogging time is being spent on social networks like Facebook and Twitter. And while there isn’t anything wrong with that, I shouldn’t be putting all my effort into those network; either for personal or even business reasons. Neither Facebook or Twitter were around when I started this blog twelve years ago. And granted they and others like Instragram and Pinterest are currently thriving, there are no guarantees that they’ll be around 10 years from now. What […]

Blog Facelift

For a while now, I’ve been thinking about giving Barzey.com a facelift and last weekend, I finally got around to it. Not only did I change the theme, but I also migrated from Movable Type to WordPress platform. This wasn’t an easy decision as I really liked Movable Type. It’s a well built product with lots of features and plugins. However, it’s not as user friendly as WordPress. I know this as I have implemented WordPress blogs for a number of my marketing consultancy clients. I didn’t recommend Movable Type as I knew it would be too complicated for them […]

For Better, For Worse

So towards the end of January, I spurred a friend on to start a blog and I told him that I’d commit to posting two to three times a week. Not just about the fluff stuff, but about things that really mattered to me. Getting him to start, was an incentive for me to recommit myself. I’ve been trying and meaning to commit more seriously to this blog, but simply haven’t properly followed through. This is despite the fact that I’d really, really like to document my personal history more. The journey is like a roller coaster with many highs […]

Facebook: Timeline

Since I started blogging again, I haven’t really shared any of my posts via Facebook as I wanted to make sure I was seriously committed to blogging again. And so now that I’ve blogged almost everyday for the last 54 days, thinking I should go ahead and start sharing. Particularly as Facebook is launching a new look called Timeline which will essentially allow you to more easily create a visual scrapbook of your life. So in conjunction with this blog, thinking it will be quite powerful in helping to further document my personal history. Of course, most of the content […]

30 Day Blog Challenge Participants

The 30 Day Blogging Challenge came together quite quickly. Via Google+ on 20th July, I asked my extended network of friends, if anyone was still blogging and more importantly would they be willing to participate in a 30, 60 or 90 day challenge. I also asked on Facebook as well. You see, after the family reunion, I’d hope to start daily blogging again but the words just didn’t seem to come. So I thought I’d look for a blog challenge that was getting ready to start. Unfortunately, timing was off and thus the idea to start one of my own. […]
