Why and How to Create Your Own Online Business Card

I had a lot of trouble figuring out what to name this blog post. The problem comes from the fact that I don’t really know what the thing this post is about is called. Is it a personal splash page? A one-page résumé? An online business card? A one-stop-shop for all things YOU on the internet?

It went through about 10 or 12 variations of headlines for this post and still didn’t come out with something I liked. Oh well.

How to Retain Your Blog’s Most Active Commenters (and Why I’m a Bad Person)

I’m really good at completely losing track of the important people in my life. I’ll get an email or call from one of my sisters every few months and never respond. I forget about best friends’ or family members’ birthdays. I never get on Facebook to see what my buddies are up to.

As of a couple days ago, I’ve joined the ranks of those super hip “extreme minimalists” that have less than 100 possessions (sort of… more on that later). To be honest, it took me by surprise. It’s not at all something I was aiming for or planning on. It just kind of… happened.

I’m the World’s Newest Professional Blogger, This Is My Story

It finally happened. Last week, I launched my first product on this blog, and I’m making enough that I can stop doing everything else I was doing to make money online. I am now the world’s newest professional blogger.

How it happened is a story that’s been decades in the making, and I think it’s about time that I shared that story.

How to Merge or Combine Multiple WordPress Blogs

Last month I combined two of my blogs into one. I was frustrated with the process and with finding good information on the best way to merge the blogs, so I created this step-by-step tutorial to save others from the same fate.
