I have been blogging for three years consistently now and it has been the same format for that time. I did do a rebranding during that time, but other than that, the format hasn’t really changed and I was the sole contributor to this space. So, I have had an idea for awhile, but am finally putting it into place. I wanted to create a blog where I would contribute some content, but I wanted to form a team of writers that could focus on content in their area of expertise. An idea that is bigger and better that offers useful information from expert writers in a specific field. In return, this also allows readers to get a weekly dose of fresh thoughts from industry-leading writers. If this sounds interesting to you, then great, because it is happening here on asmithblog.com. Starting next week you will get to hear from experts on a daily basis that I have hand-picked to publish content for asmithblog.com. So, let me introduce you to the writers that I have put into place to make this happen:
Jackie Bledsoe, Jr. – Relationships Indianapolis, IN Jackie writes a Family Leadership blog at jackiebledsoe.com. He is the creator of the series, “March DADness: Preparing Dads to Make a Championship Run in Fatherhood,” & the author of, “Lovers and Fighters: How to Love & Fight Your Way to a Better Marriage” (available soon).

The topics are of course staying the same and I will personally see every post before the public does. And of course, I will be adding content to the site as well, but my role with this blog has now officially switched to “editor/writer”. I am excited about the switch and I look forward to seeing what we all gain from this change. I am confident that you will enjoy the fresh perspective from these knowledgable, experienced writers that I have been following for quite some time and the new content that I will be introducing to you soon as well. Thank you so much for being such a huge part of this community.
