I signed up for a variety of blog registries. Some are useful, others are so complicated that they sacrifice flashiness for ease of use.In the end, I find myself only really invested in one. Blog Catalog. It could be just my personality but I get bored with jumping from one registry to the next trying to raise my visibility. I don't have the time for that nonsense. Eventually, I noticed that I usually visited Blog Catalog not to drive traffic to my site but to check out other blog sites that interest me and to join in thought-provoking and enjoyable discussions with other bloggers around the world. The fact is my Blog Value rank on the site is 12. I have absolutely no idea how that value is determined or how to raise it and frankly, I don't care all that much.
As I slowly engage in discussions, I am intrigued by the comments of other bloggers and that in turn entices me to check out some of their posts. That process works well for me. I have read more blogs as a result and the access to viewing other blogs is easy to understand and navigate so my tech-resistant brain does not put up a fight.
I know I sound like a shameless promoter of this registry but, when something works for me, I like to share it. As you can see from my prior post, I mentioned wanting to work on making a paradigm shift in my thinking. My first step was to re-vamp an idea I had a while ago of making a mission statement for my life and career. The plan is to use this mission statement as a tool similar to what Bob Proctor mentioned in the posted YouTub
e clip, I figured if I create a personal mission statement and drive it into my subconscious mind over an extended period of time, the results would be a tangible benchmark of the effectiveness of this method.
As I thought more about this, my mind recalled a post by Darin L. Hammond, a Blog Catalog blogger. He wrote about creating mission statements and provided resource links that I plan on using to help me with my new endeavor.
In case there may be any doubt, I do not work for Blog Catalog in any form but I will probably be referring to it often in future blogs because when I find any inspiration I am not going to pretend I came up with the ideas myself. I prefer to give credit to any blogger who helped me along the way or who simply wrote something so engaging I want to share.
With that in mind, I have provided a link to Darin's post in case anyone reading is interested in creating a mission statement of their own . Check it out.
