In a previous post (What Should I Do With My Fitness Blog) I wrote a bit about my frustrations and indecisions with said blog. It's still there in perpetual idle acting as a digital business card - a sort of self-owned LinkedIn but so much less noise and clutter. Lately, I've been thinking about pull-starting … Continue reading Does the World Need More Fitness Content?
I really don't want this to be another post about bashing influencers and the like. The web has plenty of that to go around. Instead I want to flesh-out some of my thoughts on the subjects of branding, marketing, and "influencing" coming from someone who has written and sold services on the internet for a … Continue reading Should I Be Branding, Marketing, and Influencing?

They are steeped in the "social media marketing" world of constantly producing, editing, and promoting. Some is good and some is so so, but I will always support … Continue reading Why Are You Creating Content?
Years ago in one of my undergrad classes in kinesiology two students (brothers) sat in the back of the class. The teacher was talking of the options we had with our degree. It spanned the spectrum from managerial positions to clinical physical therapists. The brothers interrupted the class and more or less pretentiously pontificated about … Continue reading The Unfair Treatment of Higher Education
Just another article about digital detox, social media, and balancing technology use. "Just a sec."

A quick Google search will quickly pull up a quaint billion or so results on algorithm hacks, marketing tricks, and best practices on how to game the system, get … Continue reading Why I Don’t Use Social Media for Freelancing
In some perspectives I was a terrible student. I was a late bloomer regarding learning how to study, never established a study schedule, waited until the last minute to complete tasks, and failed to establish a razor-focused trajectory.
