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.
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·esTo intend or resolve to perform or accomplish.
on purposeIntentionally; deliberately.
to good purposeWith good results.
to little/no purposeWith few or no results.
[Middle English purpos, from Anglo-Norman, from purposer, to intend : pur-, forth (from Latin pr-; see pro-1) + poser, to put; see pose1.]

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
