What you read is only the tip of the content marketing iceberg

Wed, 27 Jan 2016 19:47:29 +0000

There is a lot more going on than just the words on the page It looks so simple doesn’t it? The words on the page. The post that caught your eye. The writing is smart, concise, and brilliant. Too bad that person is just a writer, there isn’t any real marketing behind that piece. That’s […]

No there is too much. Let me sum up

Sun, 30 Mar 2014 20:37:33 +0000

Lots been going on, here are the highlights It’s a writer and blogger’s curse I think. When you’re busy with lots of great projects, your own blog gets short shrift. It’s okay, really, but since I have a new book coming out (more in a moment), I thought it might be a good idea to […]

Ditching FeedBurner: Update your feed settings

Sun, 13 Oct 2013 21:32:28 +0000

I feel like this is stripping away the last vestiges of “Web 2.0” from this site, but I decided (while writing about RSS for WordPress Absolute Beginner’s Guide) that it’s time that I just cut the cord and get away from FeedBurner. It was awesome while RSS was in its heyday, but now…I don’t need […]

C6 Magnefix Is a Clever Stylish Case for Your iPad Mini

Fri, 11 Oct 2013 18:13:43 +0000

Just after I received the Snugg case to review, I was asked if I would review another iPad mini case! You all know that I have several guilty pleasures—iPad cases, bags, pencils, and fountain pens—so when someone offers me a chance to try out a cool looking iPad case, you know I’ll jump on that […]

Please see the updates below… Let me say this straight out—my wife and I love our Nespresso. We’ve had it for three years now (it was a wedding present) and I love being able to make great coffee at home and the fact that I can recycle 100% of the packaging and pods (take that Keurig […]

Opera Ninja Returns!

Tue, 08 Oct 2013 21:34:27 +0000

Yes the stealthy tweeter is back and live tweeting the dress rehearsals of Vancouver Opera. Opera Ninja was last seen during La Traviata, but since then…silence. I mean there’s stealthy and then there is…absence. Fear not opera fans, I will again be donning the mask of the Opera Ninja for this opera season! First up: […]

Watch, Contribute, and Create a Story About Vancouver

Fri, 04 Oct 2013 18:47:06 +0000

I get to participate in some pretty darn interesting things. I’ve blogged about the opening night of an opera. I’ve live tweeted operas. I’ve covered events of all kinds, but nothing like what I’m doing tonight. Tonight I’ll be watching, tweeting, and contributing to an original story about Vancouver being written live and on stage.

Not that I don’t do a lot of research for my books, but this time I’m saving articles, posts, infographics, and other data in Evernote.

Snugg Leather iPad Mini Case: Solid Case, but Not Perfect

Mon, 23 Sep 2013 23:10:58 +0000

Way back when, was able to get an iPad mini when they first came out—launch day in fact—because I was with iPhoneHacks at the time. From the moment I started using the iPad mini I loved it. Small, light, perfect for reading and light browsing. Writing? Eh, maybe not. Quick email, sure, but… Anyway, when […]

Teams work best as all virtual or all together, not both

Wed, 18 Sep 2013 19:51:38 +0000

I’ve been a telecommuter-work from home-virtual team member for over 13 years now. I’ve long been a promoter of flexible work places and work times and have tried to bring that ethos to every “real” office I’ve worked in since. But something struck me this week, something that woke me up to the realities of […]

Slide out of the spotlight and start being interesting

Mon, 16 Sep 2013 20:25:32 +0000

It’s taken me a few days to come up with the angle here. I read this Business Insider post on Klout—Klout and startup adolescence—and I knew there was a good post in there (beyond saying “oh Klout is terrible” or “how we need Klout more than ever”), I just couldn’t quite put my finger on […]

I’m a mercenary writer and here’s how I can help you

Fri, 13 Sep 2013 20:40:12 +0000

Over the past 10 years I’ve done lots of things—and gotten pretty good at a number of them—but one thing that I’ve become very good at is writing and teaching. I was (in 2004) Canada’s first professional blogger and ever since then the majority of my income has come from writing, blogging, or teaching people […]
