Many of you are reading this post because you clicked on a link for www.stevesansford.com.
Not to worry, I haven’t hijacked your browser. The content you are looking for is still available, I’ve just made a few changes.
A blog is a lot like a living organism. It grows and evolves to adapt to its surroundings. This blog is no different. This version represents the 3rd generation. What began as a simple four-page website to advertise my freelance writing services has grown into a place for me to share my techniques with the blogging world.
This site was originally published under my personal domain (www.stevesansford.com) simply as a tool to advertise my freelance writing services. From there I added an actual blog feature to share some of the methods I’d discovered for finding freelance writing jobs online.
As I moved from writing blog posts myself to teaching others how to write better content, I realized that my personal blog also had to make a move. The focus of my work had changed. As that work was the backbone of my blog, it was clear that the blog would have to change as well.
This change was more complicated. I needed to separate the new blog from my personal domain. I was fortunate enough to find a great domain name that was still available. This allowed me to build the blog portion of my work into its own brand.
There’s mixed feelings in the blogosphere about branding a blog with your own name. While it’s worked well for a few, I’m with the team that believes it should be kept separate. Hence this evolutionary step.
While most of the content on this new blog will be focused on helping people improve their content creation, I’ll occasionally drop tidbits about the blogging process in general. I’ve learned a lot in the many years I’ve been writing blogs.
I’ll share as much as I can. I hope you find it useful.
