I want to take the time to thank those of you who have subscribed to my blog and enjoy the Direct Sales Husband’s Handbook posts. Over the past couple of years, it’s been a real pleasure to get to meet many of you. And hearing stories about how it’s made a real difference to several direct sales husbands (Husbands of Thirty-One to be exact) has been humbling, to say the least.
Although I’ve slowed down in my DSHH posting in the last year, most of that has been due to time constraints with my “real job” which changed in April. Thank you for being patient with me. During this time, I’ve still been collecting ideas for posts and how to make the Direct Sales Husband’s Handbook even better.
And it’s time to unveil the first step I’m taking in that direction:
As many of you know, I do a lot of reading. Recently what I’ve been reading regarding blogging is that it is a good idea to keep a blog branded and focused, and that makes all the sense in the world to me. One of the troubles with JasonECox.org (this site) is that it is my personal blog. That’s how it started years ago, and it’s my outlet for things like book reviews, product reviews, various geeky interests and endeavors. And there’s nothing wrong with that.
The Direct Sales Husband’s Handbook posts are important to me. And I sense that keeping them on my blog somewhat limits the visibility they could otherwise achieve. And I doubt many of the readers of that series have much interest in the other stuff I like to write about. So it’s time for a break. Or, more accurately, a re-organization of the content and direction.
Over the next weeks and months I’ll be adding all of my Direct Sales Husband’s Handbook posts to DirectSalesTips.net. As I do this, I’m updating and refreshing the content as well. Some posts I will probably break into multiple segments to go a little deeper into the topics. New DSHH posts will be posted on the new site, though I will probably either post them here as well, or at least post links to the other site.
My goal with DirectSalesTips.net is to help as many people in the direct sales business as possible. My primary focus will still be on the DSHH posts, but I will also post other general direct sales tip posts as well. Many people in the Thirty-One community know of my through my wife, Holley. But I’d love the DSHH to impact guys whose wife’s are involved in every direct sales company out there. And I’d love to get posts from other folks as well. Read the first post on DST.net to get an idea of what my goals are.
Finally, I’m going to continue posting my Various Ramblings here. But right now I’m thinking it’s going to get a lot geekier than it has been :)
Please let me know what you think. And if you think you’d like to try your hand at posting to a blog about direct sales, let me know!
