Why I Am Starting Over

Many personal blogs are a direct reflection of the author’s life. My blog started out that way and ended up sidetracked. The content didn’t fit any specific niche, so I shelved over 500 posts and set out to start over.

My blog will now target three specific areas defining me. First, I am a serial entrepreneur, starting over 30 years ago. Second, about four years ago, I started blogging as a career. Bloggers get paid for placing affiliate links in their content. That makes the third area about affiliate marketing.

Many bloggers create blogs under their own name, seeking attention. These bloggers focus on becoming online celebrities in a niche market. That’s great, but that’s not what I am after. That’s why I changed the name of my blog to “Notes from Kirk Taylor.”

Going forward, I see my blog posts differently. I see my posts as personal notes. I don’t consider myself an expert, I am a life student of entrepreneurship, blogging and affiliate marketing. My goal is to engage readers, who hopefully will help me improve the quality of my notes.

Nothing frustrates me more than when I try to learn a process, than to have somebody tell me that I don’t need to worry about it. I just need to have somebody else do it for me. I like to learn how to do myself, and I know many other people feel the same.

That’s why I will get into the details of each subject I write notes (post) on. Keep in mind, my notes are theory and may not offer you the same results I get. If I find a better way, I will update my notes.

My notes will covers a broad range of topics that relate to entrepreneurship, blogging and affiliate marketing. I might discuss WordPress Plugins in one area, search engine optimization in another area an affiliate marketing in yet a different area. Ultimately, I want my notes to become a personal manual in those areas.

Lastly, my notes will cover areas that reach across all three areas. Specifically, I look to discuss organization, planning and business strategy. Keep in mind, I don’t consider myself an expert, I am just a guy who is taking notes and sharing them with you. I do hope you will take part.
