Before I jump into the news, I want to say thank you. If you ever subscribed to my email list - thank you. If you ever read an article of mine - thank you. Sometimes we neglect to say thanks for the small things. I don’t take your attention for granted.
Now, let’s get to the point of this update. I’ve been a writer for more than a decade. Putting ideas on paper has always been interesting to me. Most of my blog posts, articles or whatever you want to call them have centered on the topics of technology, business, startups, innovation or management.
During this time, I’ve been fortunate enough to write for some interesting online publications like Forbes, The Huffington Post and Business Insider. I’ve also written for websites you’ve never heard of. My goal is to write, write and then write some more - even when you don’t think a given topic is worth writing about. The goal is to build a muscle of consistency.
One thing I’ve done a terrible job at is building consistency around a newsletter and an audience to speak to. Tons of platforms exist to help with this. I’ve tried Mailchimp, but quickly gave up. I’ve tried smaller platforms, but it didn’t stick.
Substack feels easier. It feels more light-weight. Because of these things, there is a better chance I’ll be more consistent this time around. Wish me luck and please join me on the journey.
