Hey. I know it's been over a week since I posted last, and I'm sorry about that. This is going to be a disappointing post, and I'm sorry about that too.
Life Nomadic has, as planned, become my full time focus. It's not that I don't have time to write, but I'm currently writing tons of content for the site and I feel too drained to get into another big long thing here.
Once we launch the site in the next week or two, things will get back to normal.
The good news, though, is that you'll get to read TONS of really great stuff all at once pretty soon. My goal is to blow people away with both quality and quantity, and I think I'm on track to do that.
The other good news is that the times when I have the most insight are usually the times when I'm doing the most work, so I should have some really interesting things to share with you soon too.
As a small preview, you can see a photoset of a helicopter tour I went on to the Grand Canyon. A helicopter really is the best accessory a photographer can get.
Notice proper tags, titles, captions, geotagging, and a neat Life Nomadic overlay? Signs of things to come.
Two small bits:
My friend Dova is keeping people accountable on the forums. If you have New Years goals that you're serious about, consider joining in and being accountable. I did this for 180 days last year and am now a productivity machine. It works.
In general I'd love to see more readers on the forums. We have a great group of people who I've gotten to know through their posts, and I know that a lot of other amazing people read this site. We mainly talk about and help each other with our projects and talk about cool self improvement things. Make an account and check it out.
I don't expect to be posting very much here for the forseeable future, maybe once or twice a month. Most new and exciting things that I'm up to are related to Life Nomadic, so make sure you check for my posts (and subscribe to the RSS) there.
The good news is that I will be posting at least twice a week there, Todd is posting as well, and I upload photos and write quick updates every day. Posts that I make to BTYB will be more "personal development" related, as well as projects I'm working on (like conversion doubler).
I also check the forums every day.
The writing that makes its way to my website has gone through tons and tons of hoops. I will rarely admit that I know nothing, and if I do, I put out a plan to correct that.
But at the same time, I'm sixteen years old, and I have tons of unformed or half-formed ideas and thoughts left inside that I actually really want to talk about.
This is a list that puts out whatever I want. It's going to be written very differently from the site's content. I want to have conversations. I want people smarter than me to tell me how they feel about what I'm talking about. Here's a basic rundown of topics:
Basically, this list is my own support/mastermind group. But instead of pitying me or telling me that I'm the best, I want people who challenge me and introduce me to new ideas.
As I said in the Year in Review post, the best way to challenge your ideas is to talk to people. This is my workaround.
