We Are Changing Our Name!

JW On Purpose is Changing it’s Name!

That’s right once again we are changing the name of this blog.

Here is the lowdown. I first opened this blog to journal a bit. Then I started doing interviews of some semi celebs and authors. Now I have been doing interviews of finance and business for www.CREPIG.com for sometime.

These interviews were, however, quite dry in content and I wanted to have some fun. I have now interviewed around 200 Authors and Celebs on their stories, causes, projects and just interesting stuff.

At first I just thought I would name it JW Najarian‘s blog… Then it got bigger so I thought maybe JW360 as I and my content are quite eclectic. It then morphed again to JW On Purpose as a friend noticed my focus on cause and purpose.

I really like JW On Purpose and will continue to blog under that name, but mainly it will just be me sharing my thoughts and observations.

This blog is now going to be called On Purpose Magazine. Although it doesn’t come out weekly or monthly etc.. it does contain a plethora of diverse interviews. My mission is to serve interesting, entertaining, educational, intriguing, enlightening and inspirational interviews with the most interesting people I can get in front of.

Why a Magazine? Cause it sounds good. Today you have to brand something and you need to keep the name easy and hope it talks to what you are trying to portray.  So we ceremoniously christen this blog with the name On Purpose Magazine.

Why On Purpose? First I liked the double entendre meaning of the phrase, on purpose. What I want to do, for the most part, is “Do On Purpose, with Purpose”. So you will notice most posts lean toward a cause or purpose.

The Site will be moving and be all New and Improved!

Also Coming Soon………………

We have decided that WP.com does not afford us the growth and functionality we desire so we will be moving to WP.org with a whole new look and feel. Should Really be cool… This will happen the the next month or so…

Come share the journey and please do not hesitate to join in.

The Journey of 1000 miles starts with this first step.

Welcome to:

On Purpose Magazine

Not Another Name Change!?

Disney Rose JW Najarian

Disney Rose from my garden

I am changing the name of the site to JW On Purpose.

Yes sorry, but the wonderful and talented author,  Hyla Molander came up with this new name and I really loved it.

I was NetworkingFools.com and then JWN360 and then JW360 and now I am JW On Purpose.

By the way the graphic of the Disney Rose from my garden is just that. There is no special meaning to this story or post. I just liked it.

I took a ton of pictures of the flowers our yard and shared them on Flickr. So why did I put a picture here? Because this story seemed dull without a picture. So now you know the PURPOSE of the graphic. If you are interested, here are the rest of my pics http://www.flickr.com/photos/jwnajarian/sets/72157626992498566

The purpose or mission here is to deliver, what I like to call, DIIIEEECCC (Pronounced ^%$@%$#@ or Whatever!).  It stands for Delivering Intriguing, Inspiring, Interesting, Educational, Entertaining, Enlightening, Cheerful and Compelling Content.

We often ask questions related to cause. We love to know what causes you support and we like to try and help you put out the word for your cause.

I love the double entendre meaning with the name On Purpose. First I love the word purpose. Here is the definition.

pur·pose  (pûrps)

n.

1. The object toward which one strives or for which something exists; an aim or a goal: “And ever those, who would enjoyment gain/Must find it in the purpose they pursue” (Sarah Josepha Hale).
2. A result or effect that is intended or desired; an intention. See Synonyms at intention.
3. Determination; resolution: He was a man of purpose.
4. The matter at hand; the point at issue.

tr.v. pur·posed, pur·pos·ing, pur·pos·es

To intend or resolve to perform or accomplish.

Idioms:

purpose [ˈpɜːpəs]

1. the reason for which anything is done, created, or exists
2. a fixed design, outcome, or idea that is the object of an action or other effort
3. fixed intention in doing something; determination a man of purpose
4. practical advantage or use to work to good purpose
5. that which is relevant or under consideration (esp in the phrase to or from the purpose)
6. Archaic purport
on purpose intentionally

vb (tr)

to intend or determine to do (something)

[from Old French porpos, from porposer to plan, from Latin prōpōnere to propose]

So we can use the word on as an adverb or adjective to change the meaing.

On Purpose, where on is the adjective to mean either with intent, determination, resolve, accomplish and result as in the phrase “They are doing that on purpose”, meaning that they are doing something with intent or using on as an adverb as in the phrase “He is writing this book on pupose.” which says that the subject of the book is about purpose.

Anyway as a phrase   It sounds good and, I believe it is apropos to what I am trying to do here.

Hope everyone likes it as much as I do…  Thanks Hyla
