“Why did you create five blogs in the first place, knowing that you’d never be writing in all five everyday anyway?”
Two logical reasons:
- My model for balance had four parts, not two
- I’d link each of them to all the others, for SEO
Mid Life Celebration is about balancing life’s big choices, and there are four:
This fifth blog, jeffnoel.com, was created because I thought there should be an “office” or “headquarters”, so to speak – one that didn’t have a theme and wasn’t part of the model.
And when the previous jeffnoel.com didn’t renew after having that domain, www.jeffnoel.com for seven years, it was a natural choice to pick my given name as a dot com.
That’s it. That’s how it happened. And now, I can’t stop myself.
In a sea of blogs that drone on about whatever, I’m carving out a space among the few who have five-a-day, droning on about whatever.
A recent email immediately gave me an idea for a blog post. And the email was triggered by a LinkedIn contact.
LinkedIn is designed primarily as a professional, business-like social network.
Think of it this way:
- My Space = your bedroom
- Facebook = your living room
- LinkedIn = your office
LinkedIn mostly is a social network where business professionals can share how smart they are. You know, posting their resume for the entire world to see.
And this is powerful because LinkedIn has something like 40+ million users and is reported to grow to 200-300 million “soon”.
Those who know me well, know that I’m as focused and disciplined as they come. And I can dress up in a suit and look like I run the joint. But I prefer cut-off jean shorts and barefeet.
Don’t believe me, check out my LinkedIn profile. It ain’t your typical “I’m so smart, I’m so smart. I’m so smart” resume. Mostly, because, well, honestly, I’m not the brightest bulb in the box.
Anyway, I use LinkedIn as a micro-blog. Every day posting a new status update. Today’s was simply, Jeff Noel doesn’t think you’ve been to this blog yet: https://jeffnoel.org It’s a dot org
“More Ovaltine please”? A classic commercial tag line from American television and radio.
More Ovaline? No.
More pictures and You Tube videos please. I hear ya. I’m with ya. Busy. Man, am I busy!
All good things take time. Which is why I give myself some credit for coming so far in only six months.
Six months? Well, writing consistently for six months.
The actual vision for doing this started about 30 years ago in college. That’s a tale for another time (maybe).
Open Networker? Yes.

Also on Facebook, but not as an Open Networker. Make it a great day to build your network. We can make the world a better place, but only if we all work together.
