You guys! I'm so excited to tell you that I have a piece on Entrepreneur.com's website! It's called 6 Steps to Take Today to Improve Your Google Search Results. I am super excited about it, and I hope you will read it, find it useful, and share it!
This year I'm trying to get better about developing coursework/ material to help people actually learn things ("teach a person to fish," if you will). With that in mind, last week I made this video (the first in a series), which goes over just why authors should own their own domain names.
Here's the video, in case this topic interests you (or you know an author who needs to start working on their website), or in case you would like to see me talking at length about domain names while wearing a "Janet Jackson/ Control" headset because that is the best mic I could find.
Some logistical things you might be curious about:
--I shot and edited this video using ScreenFlow (for Mac).
--I am talking into a mic that came with Dragon's "Naturally Speaking" voice to text program (a program a rarely use, but the mic came in handy).
--No, I am not trying to look like one of those "Addicted to Love" video women with my hair slicked back. In fact, it is winter, and if I let my hair out, it is absolutely gigantic/ filled with static electricity and looks just like the hair of the "Hey YOU GUYS!" woman from the Electric Company. I noticed this after the first take, when my hair was basically its own character in the video, so I fixed my crazy hair and shot another version. In this version, I look a little like a librarian, but oh well.
I'm shooting more tutorials, so let me know if you have questions!!
Dude! Enough with winter already! This is joke winter. Look at my car.
Seriously? Is this what 2014 has in store for us, people? I already feel like I would like to object to the whole year just on principle.
I think I may have mentioned, 2014 has been extremely chaotic thusfar (as well as cold). Here's an example: as part of my "It's the first of the year, I'm going to streamline processes," I tried to remove myself from a former client's MailChimp account, and in so doing I encountered this error message. I think you'll agree, it is both amusing and bureaucratically confusing. Are they really giving me the option to delete my former client's ENTIRE ACCOUNT rather than simply allowing me to remove myself? Um...that does not seem like a good idea under any circumstance, does it? Not that I would ever do that, but I'm just saying. This client happens to no longer be my client because they NEVER paid on time, so it's a good thing I have strong moral fiber.
That's all for today. I have to go work on liberating my car from that giant wall of snow and ice. I promise to write some more when I no longer feel like punching 2014 in the face.
