What Do You Want to Be Known For?

Day 6 of 30

As a person who has owned 30+ different blogs on unique domains, I’ve asked myself this question over and over again. Not because I’m necessarily getting deeper into the answer, but because I’ve repeatedly caught myself getting derailed and not pursuing what’s most important.

What do I want to be known for?

It’s a question I’m asking myself today because I still have at least one too many blogs running out there. I have personal, spiritual, sports, and professional. If I blog once a day, I never blog twice a week on each site.

The easiest site to write for is my sports site, DallasProSports.com. But it’s also the most controversial because, when I start planning daily posts, I catch myself automatically asking, “Is THIS what I want to be known for?” Yes, I enjoy it, but do I want the reputation of a sports blogger?

With ministry always somewhere in the back of my mind, I can’t help but wonder if people would take me seriously if I were recognized as a sports blogger. Sports is a hobby only. Not my calling. Not my purpose.

But it’s something I enjoy.

One thought on “What Do You Want to Be Known For?”

  1. Liked this blog post. As a blogger myself, it’s often hard to find the voice you are most comfortable with. While I only blog about tech related issues (mostly), the bigger question you raise – “What do you want to be known for” is a tricky one that I think most people struggle with daily. Looking forward to learning how you answer this one.
