For those who come looking for a short, thoughtful read, a blogging life discussion, or a way to gradually ease back into the week. I offer this bloggy life question. . . .
You’ve been writing a blog as a bit of an adventure. You’re not a “make money online” sort of person — mostly because you wouldn’t have a clue how.
Then yesterday you got invited to speak at a conference nest Tuesday in California for some 300 eager attendees. The sponsor of the event has asked you to do the keynote opening talk. The theme of the conference is the theme of your blog.
Suddenly, you realize you have an opportunity to network. People there will listen to what you have to say. You have just enough time to put together some incredible business cards and a great elevator pitch, but no time at all to make your blog look like you do this for a living. Even worse, you’ve been neglecting your blog lately.
Do you leave your as it is and hope for the best, handing out business cards and plan to fix it as soon as you return? Do you pull it off line and put it “under construction”? Do you hand it to a designer and a copywriter who know you, hoping that what they come up with is better than what’s there?
Do you go on vacation instead, figuring you were never meant to do this anyway?
How do you respond?
