You came here to find out more about me. I wish I could help, I really do. Though I’ve written perhaps hundreds in my lifetime, bios and “about me” sections continue to vex me. Burdened by marketing shoulds, shouldn’ts, do-es and don’ts, they present such a faint echo of a person, someone I don’t even recognize. Each carefully crafted line and strategically articulated accomplishments pulls us further from the truth of it, of any of it.
But reputation management is simply how you play the game. How well you manage your reputation in any given space determines the degree to which you can achieve success, yes?
I should tell you where I’ve come from, what I’ve done, give you as many reasons to stick around as I can find. But you and I both know that the game is rigged. The algorithms favor the material and the surface and the trending topics of the day.
And really…I don’t know…I’m not sure where this is going.
I appreciate your visit, and that you’ve taken the time to read this far. Perhaps, in the pages that follow, you and I can discover something together, something that lies between the material and the known. I like those spaces–unknown unknowns. If you would like to know about those too, then come. I don’t know where I’m going, but I sense it could be interesting.
