Call Me a fool, but this blog will change

I am having a huge problem as I feel I have no place to express myself anymore. This blog has turned into a How-To blog and although I like that aspect of the blog, I still want it to be more than that. I want it to be my complete footprint online. It shall be the resource people can turn to when they want help with their social media stuff, but it should also reflect more of my personality.

Where I want to take this blog

I want to be able to write reviews of books I read, I want to be able to write about my days in the office and I want to be able to share stuff more spontaneously. The how to posts I write today I spend between 1-5 hours on. That is not including the time I spend researching, testing and developing what I write about.

No worries, Tutorials will continue

I want to continue doing that, but under a different umbrella. Thus I registered a new domain.

I won’t tell you the name of the domain just yet, as I want everything to be up and running when I direct your attention to that platform. I expect it to be up sometime mid next week. For the past few weeks I have been exploring the world of Facebook Apps. I am currently creating a full tutorial on how to set up a Facebook App and how to run basically anything on Facebook that you need for your business to grow.

My final goal is to integrate your CMS completely with the Facebook platform making your work load a lot less demanding considering you have to work on both your website, Facebook, Twitter, Flickr etc etc. I will help you do all this from one single CMS.

For this practice I will use WordPress or Drupal (haven’t decided yet), but the connections are universal and as long as your CMS publishes pure xhtml strict 1.0 and some format of RSS/ATOM you’ll be able to follow that class. The hosting I’ll be using is HostGator.

So what should you do?

Well, for those of you who don’t want to hear me talk about clips from TED or want to listen in on my thoughts on the hidden web. You should probably consider unsubscribing to my RSS-feed. Actually, wait a week until I launch my new stuff.

That way I will stay more relevant and happy at the same time. That way I’ll be able to say “Fuck the free world” whilst not alienating those of you who are just here to learn. One place for the tutorials, and one place for the stuff I have in my head.

It is time to let loose of some boundaries. Or as the Swedish Volvo commercial tune said: “Releeeeeaaaase meeeeeee”.

“I am the wilderness locked in a cage
I am a growing force you kept in place
I am a tree reaching for the sun
Please don’t hold me down
Please don’t hold me down

I am a rolling wave without the motion
A glass of water longing for the ocean
I am an asphalt flower breaking free but you keep stopping me
Release me
Release me

I am the rain that’s coming down on you
That you shielded yourself from with a roof
I am the fire burning desperately but you’re controlling me
Release me
Release me”

    One must be sure to not miss your new domain, cause this is one of the best resources out ther. If not the best.

    However, since I know you in person and know what a great personality you are I'm looking forward to read the new flavour of Jesperastrom.com as well.

    BTW, I guess one good post on the new domain would be a guide about moving all your great how-to-posts to the new domain without loosing any strenght.
