Today I announced a big change involving my personal blog over at CorbettBarr.com. This change marks a new chapter for Think Traffic, so I’m also going explain what’s going on and how it will affect Think Traffic here.
Many of you may be familiar with my other blog. I’ve been writing there for nearly 3.5 years about entrepreneurship and the relationship between work and life.
That blog has meant a lot to me, and it was the foundation that all the other projects I started in the past few years have grown out of, including Think Traffic.
In 2010 I started Think Traffic to take things further. Instead of just talking about entrepreneurship and lifestyle issues, I wanted to create a forum where I could share what I’d learned about building an online business, and have conversations with you about specific business strategies.
Over the past couple of years, Think Traffic has become my biggest focus and the project I’m most proud of in my career so far. Thank you for being a part of it.
But since starting Think Traffic, the difference between this site and my personal blog hasn’t always been clear. Here we tend to talk more about strategies and how-to. At my other site we talk more about the big picture and the reasons why we all work so hard to create sustainable online businesses.
That distinction has often felt artificial and unclear. I’ve also been torn between trying to maintain two sites to a high standard, which is no easy task.
In addition, the Think Traffic team and I are taking on the most ambitious project we’ve ever attempted, and we are consolidating all we can to focus on the new project.
Today I’m announcing a new chapter for me and for Think Traffic.
Within the next couple of weeks, I’ll be closing the doors on my personal blog and shifting my focus 100% over to Think Traffic.
The best aspects of my blog will be merged with Think Traffic. We think the marriage of the two will create an even more useful and compelling blog at Think Traffic.
I’m excited about the change and what it will mean. There are two changes you can expect at Think Traffic:
- The best content from my personal blog will be migrated into the archives of Think Traffic. In upcoming posts we’ll guide you through the articles we migrated.
- We will be featuring more “big picture” posts here. Think Traffic won’t just be about what we do online or how we do it, it will also be about the reasons why.
The way people earn a living is being reinvented because of the web and incredible new tools being created every day, and because of a shift in what people want their work to be. Entrepreneurship to us means so much more than most people think of it as.
I’m excited to start exploring those topics and more here. This revolution needs to be central to our conversation.
Aside from that, expect to see more from me, and probably a little more personal flair from time to time.
We would love to hear your feedback both now and over the coming weeks. Please tell us what you think about the change in the comments below or feel free to write us an email.
We’ll be sharing details of the big new project we’re working on shortly. Stay tuned.
