I’m stoked you came over to my “About” page!
I named the blog Medium Joe for several reasons.
First, because it gives the reader an idea of the content: my thoughts on media, mostly new/social media, and marketing. Now-a-days, those two are one and the same.
Second, it sounds like a coffee order: “I’ll have a medium joe, please.” I’m giggling.
Third, it’s a play on the term average Joe, but I ain’t no average Joe.
Mostly, it just seems like a catchy blog name.
As for me, discussing the stuff I discuss on this blog is something I love doing. I have a bachelor’s degree in communication arts from Gannon University, and I have a minor, also from Gannon, in fine arts. I love creation, epiphanies, criticism, and thinking.
I tend to notice things (especially in media) that a lot of people don’t. I have fun pointing these things out. That is why Medium Joe exists.
I’m a predictor. I love predictions, and I love making them. I predict all kinds of crazy stuff on this blog, and then I explain why I believe my prediction to be true. Even if my prediction ends up being false, we gain huge amounts of knowledge on the topic by contemplating it.
Discussion gives us more knowledge than any other teaching medium on Earth. I blog for discussion.
Hey, following Medium Joe is free. So why not subscribe for a week or two to see if you like it. If you don’t, it’s only one click to unsubscribe. But if you really give Medium Joe a try (read every new article for two weeks), I guarantee you will gain tons of useful knowledge on topics like social media marketing and new media ethics. You’ll probably stop needing coffee in the mornings because you’ll be so energized and excited about being a part of the discussion on Medium Joe!
By the way, that picture is me, but it’s not (it isn’t?) current. That’s me when I was too young to remember. I was a huge Superman fan so I’d always wear those glasses (like Clark Kent) when I wasn’t in my Superman costume. Most of the time, I didn’t need the glasses. That costume was bitchin’. It had a velcro-on cape!
Seriously, if you get me an adult-sized Superman costume – must have velcro-on cape, I will buy you a cake that says, “Medium Joe’s Best Fan!” Can you say, office party?
