It was Annette Clancy who first introduced me to having two blogs.
She used to have a personal blog, under a nom de plume. It was outstanding and won recognition in the form of an Irish Blog Award. (I forget which year she won that prize. I was 2006)
Then she launched Interactions, her business blog, under her proper name. For a while, she produced both - until she dropped the personal blog, and removed it from view, for reasons I forget. Interactions is a fine business blog with insights drawn from both her therapeutic and business experience. (She a trained and practised psychotherapist.)
Since November 2005…
I’ve blogged here, under the nom de plume of Omaniblog. The blog has always has several foci. Maybe the only focus that’s glued it together is dedication to writing practice.
By now you may be saying to yourself ‘he’s leading up to an announcement that he’s taking a break from blogging to spend time with his family’. I’m not. I’m going in a different direction.
I’m breaking the news that I’ve launching a new blog - a business blog. It’s dedicated to writing for business. So, it’s called "Writing for Business from Cork".
But it has more than a parochial flavour. It aims to showcase quality writing for business from all round the globe. It’s local, with a global focus - a glocal blog you might say. I hope people will read it and say
‘this guy’s a good writer… he’s come up with a feast of great writing…
I could use some of that in my business… I’ll give him a call…
or (better still) I’ll leave a comment on the blog and set the ball rolling.’
Please taste "Writing for Business", and pass on word that it exists. It’s already on page 2 of Google if you look for "business writing from Cork". You’ll see that it actively seeks help to become great.
Thank you very much dear readers.
PS: You’ll see that it also marks an end to me trying to prevent people knowing my ‘real’ name. But I’ve grown attached to Omani and Omaniblog, so I’ll continue to be known as Omani on here, I hope.
