Shot with FIMO ERA 2021.

I’ve been keeping a blog of some kind since the dawn of time. I wish I still had some of those earlier blogs. They were terrible, but, man, was it exciting to be on the freakin’ internet.

You could meet people who were miles and miles away without having to jack up your phone bill. Think about how ridiculous it was to pay a 50-dollar phone bill back in the day the next time you look at your cell phone bill.

As time moved on, blogs became “niche” which is good for businesses and consumers. But, then personal blogs became personal brands.

Everyone has a book (I have several – Kid’s books) and everyone has a YouTube Channel (except me). Everyone is a coach or teaches a class (also, me – Skillshare & Udemy).

This is great. I’m not complaining about the multiple streams of income or the ability to share and gain knowledge. Nor am I complaining about our ability to share and manifest joy with others around the world.

What I am saying this – a branded blog is not a personal blog. It isn’t the freedom we were promised when the internet was new. So, I am laying waste to personal branding here. I will leave the branding for business (mine and otherwise).

I will share pictures sometimes. I will most likely write about my workouts and food. I will blog about my projects and give relevant links when I think it is necessary.

I will keep the BUY NOW buttons on my business sites, in relevant blog posts and on relevant pages. Deal? Deal.

Okay. Let’s go.

A List

Here is a list of all of the books, projects, hobbies, businesses, side hustles, etc in my life. I have categorized them, added a brief description, and a link for you.

Please keep in mind that I have the following as well: A full-time job, a spouse, a step-person, and community obligations. Everything I accomplish is in 10 to 30-minute intervals over stretches of time. I’m racing no one. I always aim for a minimum viable product and improve upon that as I go.

I tell you this, because if you want to write books, make courses, exercise, etc., you can do it even if you are cubicle jockey like me.

Barbara Burgess is a writer which is made apparent by the text in this box and the box above. She is best known for being a multi-genre/multi-writing voice author who throws caution to the wind when describing her writing career - "Oh, I write children's books, holiday romance, and sci-fi. Why? What do you do? Just one thing?" In addition to being a writer of all the things, she is the founder of Pilgrim Fowl Press and a writing facilitator bringing permission to write to the masses via Skillshare and Udemy. The only social media she frequents is Instagram (@hellothisisbarbara). Her desert island movie is Stargate (the original with James Spader), and she has been taking daily mug shots of her morning coffee since before Instagram was even a thing.
