Welcome to Perfectly Petersen

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my new outlet. As SOBCon07 presented speaker after speaker about personal branding, I realized that Gitr’s WoW Blog does not look like me at all. There were blogs represented that perfectly matched the authors, and I wanted that, too.

I have several goals with this site and have yet to come up with a quippy by-line that I feel comfortable settling on for more than a week, so I’m going to hold off for now. Right now, my goals are simple:

  1. I want to express myself without regard of keeping everyone happy. I always feel boxed in at Gitr’s because I need to appeal to everyone who plays the game to keep them coming back for the game content, not what I think about things.
  2. I want to be able to discuss topics that gamers don’t give a rip about when they stumble upon my site from a search engine or who have subscribed and don’t see content that drew them there in the first place.
  3. I want to help people become the best writers, editors, spouses, employees, and bosses possible. I have a lot to say, but I’m a jack of all trades, master of none. I’m going to keep it broad for now, but it’s all me, and it’s all cool.

I’m having some problems with being able to submit comments this morning from home with either Firefox or IE with this theme, so I’m baffled at how Liz left a comment. I’m going to work on that today, but if it doesn’t work, I’m going to have to abandon this theme. /sadร‚ย  Nothing a little coding from other themes won’t fix. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Just remember to stay true to your interests and personality because your blog gives you freedom to express YOUR personal brand, not what others want it to be.

    Hey Jesse,

    This is much better… I went to Gitr, and it was definitely a niche experience; it took me a while to realize it was you.

    Good luck as you develop your brand รขโ‚ฌโ€ I, too, saw a lot of ways to improve the presentation of my passion through my site.

    And now, the fun begins!

    Adam,

    Thanks for stopping by. I’m ready to start writing now. Crazy CSS editing is all out of the way now. Keep your tray stowed and your seatback in the full, upright, and locked, position.

    Thanks for the kudos, Easton. It was time for a change. I don’t really care to do things half-way. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Man, you are fast in setting up a new template!

    I agree with Easton. The WoW blog puzzled me the first time I saw it. Since I’m not in that world, I didn’t think the blog applied to me.

    Then I have done a good thing, here, Mark. I’ve been curious for quite some time now how many people didn’t like blogging stuff on Gitr’s and how many people like you wouldn’t go to Gitr’s for blogging stuff.

    This is brilliant! I’m very excited about what you have going here.

    It was great meeting you but way too short on time. I really wanted to know more and now I can with this new blog! Congrats and keep blogging!

    Lorelle,

    I’ll take that as high praise. 16 years of blogging counts for something, now doesn’t it? I didn’t even know what blogging was 3 years ago, so gratz to your pioneering ways.

    It was an honor to meet you last week.
