The Daily Experiment


tde

Email is more personal. It’s easier to open up more in email. I was playing around with these thoughts and The Daily Experiment was born. To those who want it, I send an email everyday (almost. I did miss one day), the subject varies. So far topics have included sleep, movies, Captain America, proactive action, and tactics (for life).

If you email me (something real, not something like, hiii, you’re awesome, can you pay me $5), I will respond. It’s a fun way to get to know each other, and it gets me writing on a more personal level daily. So if you’re interested, join my mailing list and be sure to specify that you want to get The Daily Experiment.

Word of Mouth Marketing


Word of Mouth Marketing

So far, almost all the work I’ve gotten has been through word of mouth or Kijiji ads.

That’s it.

I’m not saying it’s the smartest way to market, essentially, I’m not doing any marketing at all, but I still manage to get some clients. How? Continue reading

What to Blog About


What to Blog About

I’ve written a variety of posts on this blog since I first started it back in 2012. Food, myself, blogging, design, writing, advice, books, crafts, scrapbooking, finance, fitness, religion, social media, etc. It has always been fascinating to see what posts become popular and which have literally zero traction. There have been posts I was sure would be popular and have flopped and others I had no hope for and randomly bring in traffic almost daily.

I’ve written here off and on for over a year now and my posts are starting to become more regular (again). My thoughts are more focussed and my goals are very clear to me but this has not quite translated over to the blog yet. But it’s coming. Continue reading
