For the first post I want to answer a simple, straightforward question. Why start a blog?
The answer is short and simple. When I started the PreBoot Podcast, I did it to do create value for the everyday entrepreneurs. There are two ways I wanted to do this.
- Provide meaningful content to aspiring entrepreneurs.
- Provide a platform for local entrepreneurs to share their story, expertise, and experiences.
Provide Meaningful Content
If you listened to episode 9 of the PreBoot Podcast, I announced that I was going to focus the podcast mainly on telling the stories of local entrepreneurs. This meant there would be less content generated around advice, resources, and opinions. Largely this is because the podcast platform is perfect for these types of long form stories and is less engaging as a platform for the latter type content.Enter the blog. This blog will be the landing place for this type of context.So if you are seeking helpful information around what makes start-up’s successful, great resources, unique thoughts, helpful tactics, or anything of that sort this blog is made for you.
Provide A Platform
When first starting the podcast, I purposefully did not start a blog. There were a few reasons for this, but one of the biggest was that I didn’t have the time to be constantly pumping out new articles and fresh thoughts. This has not changed. Wait..so then why (and how) the blog?
This blog is not going to be a catalog of my thoughts, musings or rants. I promise.
Rather, it is going to be a platform for others. One of the things that I have been particularly struck by is how many great insights and thoughts the entrepreneurs I have met that I wish I could have shared but didn’t have the time or space on the podcast. And there are no shortage of these types of thoughts and entrepreneurs and no lack of desire to share it, help others, and promote their business and brand.
So the plan for this blog is to feature guest posts, especially guests of the show. Guests who have lots of insights and a desire to share. So if you have thoughts that you would like to share with the world, this blog can be your platform to share them with the world. You can fill out the connect form and let me know that you are interested in writing for the blog.
Keep checking back. And please comment, engage, and share.
Lets start it off by asking, what kind of questions and subjects do you want us to tackle first?
