I create context. I also write blog posts:

Sooooooo… It’s Been A While. (An Update!)

Posted: August 3rd, 2012 | Author: | No Comments »

Holy wow, it’s been a long time since I’ve been over here. It’s not for lack of productivity, though. Here’s what I’ve been doing since I last checked in:

How To Do Stuff, my most recent project, is a short book of how-to guides written and designed for the iPad. The idea’s found a home on HowToDoStuff.co and I’m pushing what I hope will be a cool social arm on Facebook.com/howtodostuff.co. If you follow me on any sort of network whatsoever, you’ve probably also taken some shrapnel from my promotional efforts. Sorry for that, but I think this is a pretty cool project, so really, I’m not entirely sorry. You’re going to enjoy it.

In The Meantime is a page I put together to keep everyone up to speed when I disappear on longer projects, the way I have these past few months. It’s a list of reading, listening, and design recommendations to check out in between writing projects that I’m working on. I figure, I could just tell you to read all of my other stuff, but I want to share a lot more than just my own stuff. This is a good spot for it.

12 Books, 12 Months. When I got an iPad last Christmas, that was the promise I made myself. I’d read 12 books in 12 months, after reading a grand total of about 1 in the past 24 months. So far, I’m off to a pretty good start. You can follow along on Pinterest to see what I’m reading next!

Notes In The Margin is awesome. There, I said it. I’m really proud of it, and I hope there’s more to come. To summarize the project, it’s a website composed of a series of short stories I wrote over a one year period after moving back to the East Coast after living in LA. Then I had Todd Burnett create cover illustrations for each story. It looks good, they’re pretty quick, pretty good reads, the whole thing’s dynamite. Trust me.

The Collaborative is a group to keep your eyes on; they’re doing some cool things, helping non-profits and social entrepreneurs tell their stories. I did some copy work for their brand new website.

And of course, I’ve been looking for a job, too. If you know anyone in New York who’s looking for a brand storyteller (basically, a hybrid copy/social/digital writer), give me a shout!

So that’s it. That’s what I’ve been up to in the 74 days since I’ve posted to this blog. What have you all been up to?

Want to keep closer tabs on me? Cool. Just shoot me your email address and you’ll be the first to know when I finish a project!
