Why Blog?

Internet Revolution quote

You Need To Be Online.

Let me get this out there: I believe that we are a lost generation. We’re super educated, super unique, super talented, and are perusing jobs on Craigslist so we can make rent.

From taking me into and out of my first job, to paving my way into a rich future that I’m finally excited to be a part of, I have learned firsthand that cultivating an online identity and web presence is the single most powerful tool we can use today to set us apart from our peers in this debilitating economic environment.

I’ve spent years building my blog, taking courses ranging from guest blogging to monetization strategies, picking the brain of my web designer and developer boyfriend, following literally hundreds of blogs about blogging (so meta!), studying journalism and content creation, learning how to function in the worlds of Photoshop and creative licenses, running email marketing campaigns and re-making websites as a Marketing Director, and now, finally, packaging it up so that it can do some good.

Plus, selfishly, I’m tired of watching everyone I know be bored at their desk jobs.

You already know that the real movement for me has always been “fearless thinking.” I want us to think fearlessly about our bodies, our relationships, and our futures. Embarking into this blogging world has taught me a lot of practical things – everything from titles that hook, to posts that go viral, to guest blogging etiquette and protocol. But more than anything, it’s helped me meet hundreds of other people that have reached their best lives with the help of an online presence. It isn’t just about making money online, it’s about creating something online – because if you create something great, you’ll attract like-minded people who also want to make great things. And suddenly, that energy and success is contagious.

Testimonials

Jen, MsMorphosis herself, writes with a wisdom that belies her age (astoundingly only 25) and speaks from a place that seems like you’re listening to your big sister, or a dear friend that you’ve never met. For me, the connection was instant, and the material has always been almost so personally intertwined and touching that I feel like the singer-story-teller in the song, ‘Killing Me Softly.’ — Sheanna Caban
