Who is Pete McPherson?

Besides a tall drink of water with a silky-smooth podcast voice and a flaming-hot passion for digital media & online business?

about pete mcpherson and do you even blog

Would you believe that I used to be a boring accountant, complete with a CPA license, years of corporate experience, a fantastic salary–and pretty much the rest of the “American Dream?”

Would you ALSO believe that I gave all that up??

I’ve been blogging & podcasting since 2010, and in 2014 I decided I want to do more creative work, and try to make a full-time income from it.

After two years & 50+ failed blogs and businesses–I eventually found a “transition” job that would allow me to…

  • leave corporate America
  • blog more
  • work part-time with benefits

Work part time, earn benefits & a salary, AND explore side hustles? Best of both worlds, yes? 

Well, I got laid off after only one paycheck.


Throughout my 10+ years of podcasting and blogging–I found the process of blogging way more interesting than the topic I was supposed to be blogging about.

But I didn’t let myself start a blog about blogging (or podcast about blogging).

After all, it’s a saturated niche, and does the world really need another meta-blogger??

Getting laid off changed that.

I’d had enough of NOT doing what I really want to do.

On June 1st 2017, I hit publish on this site, and the podcast.

Since then, I’ve interviewed

I’ve also…

  • built a full-time business for myself!
  • spoke at conferences
  • been featured on Forbes, Kinsta, Fiverr, Lifehacker, and more.
  • been lucky enough to have people listen to and trust what I say! It’s an honor and responsibility.

As it turns out, Do You Even Blog is what I was meant to do right now.

Old DYEB logos.

Some say I have an eye for design and branding, yada yada–but these logos were built out of “how can I be lazy & simple to hide the fact that I stink at design?”
