An off-the-cuff remark made during the closing session at Blissdom Canadagave many attendees their homework assignment from the session.
“What’s your one word?”
The one word in question is the word you’d use to describe your brand. Your online persona. Yourself.
Like a lot of people, I struggled with what I thought my one word was. I wanted one that represented who I am and who I want to be, both online and in the real world.
I also wanted a word that hadn’t been taken by anyone else. Why yes, I’ve got a touch of the special snowflake disease – doesn’t everyone?
The word I chose for myself is…
According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, perceptive is defined as:
1: responsive to sensory stimuli : discerning
2a : capable of or exhibiting keen perception : observant
2b : characterized by sympathetic understanding or insight
I pride myself on paying attention to the little things, the details that make life great. I also do my best to think about those details so I can understand them and share my insights with others.
Seems to me that that is a lot of what personal blogging is about.
Now it’s time to up the perception and insight up in here. I gotta live up to this one word you know.
