I’m not completely sold on this idea, but I’m going to try it anyway. The problem I’m trying to solve is the feeling of not having enough time. At work I use time blocking and that has had a significant positive effect […]
My latest newsletter is in part about why I don’t look up much when I’m outside. Which is true. I find it more comforting to watch the ground and check in front of me. It’s just a habit. I’m not trying to […]
There’s a determined sabatoge-y feeling running grinning savagely under whatever your priorities are. The train to the key meeting is delayed. The communication lines crossed so that your compadre is where you’re supposed to be and you? You are somewhere else entirely. And so the traveling and walking and checking continue.
I may have an opportunity to do something that I didn’t look for, wasn’t expecting, but if it happens it will change my life for the better, I’m not joining an MLM or going on a banana-only diet or anything like that.
Because I’m a great starter and a shitty finisher of personal projects, I’m documenting this process as I go. I’m writing in the framework of David Kadavy’s 100words a day project. It’s money-free, but costs time and attention and I think it will help exercise my writing muscle.
Hey, I got to 90!
So, this is the idea: up, do my ablutions, write my 100 words, research and write my newsletter, plan the art I’ll create for the newsletter, do all the things that are necessary to promote the newsletter, work on my artshop, etc etc. No, I won’t be able to do all of this in a 1 hour block in the morning. Yes, I have to schedule this so I get an hour of Japanese study, plus exercise. No, I’m not sure yet how I’ll do it.
But it’s so much fun to try!
this is from tokyoterri’s rebellion: my newsletter on life as an older aspiring artist who’s working on getting healthy and contributing to a saner world.

Even an atheist like me can appreciate this series of interviews. So authentic and Black and learning opportunities.
Okay, that’s it, I’m done with the niche thing. This is supposed to be the first thing you do if you want to build a following online. Find a niche first. Do your homework. Check out what your community needs and see if you can fulfill their needs.
Time for me to dispense with that!
