Good stuff, Paul. I've found a number of these work well for me (using my real name, putting things out there), and I look forward to trying the others.
Thanks Josh! Using my real name was one of the best things I've done so far.
I might give that a try as well
Good advice Paul. Thanks for sharing your post.
I like this article because it actually suggested some things that I don't do and aren't told to do. There's a lot of self help articles, but this one felt especially relevant to getting out there. Cool guy.
Thanks Annie! I appreciate it.
The one thing that is almost always missing in articles like this is a specific action. That's one thing that always frustrates me. It was a "must have" when I started writing this.
Have a good weekend!
Thank you this was kind of what I needed. I have been trying to post one blog post a week, which has purpose and is well thought out. I've stuck to it so far but they've been code related and I've wanted to write more about design related things, which I always find so difficult (not completely sure why, mostly confidence I guess). I was putting off a post but after reading this I'm going to make sure my next one is about design and get it done.
Awesome! Glad it helped.
Really great read, and loving all your projects from the 52 week challenge so far. Think Tank is my favorite newsletter at the moment!
Thanks! That means a lot to me. I'm glad you're enjoying the newsletter.
Thank you Paul, those are really good advises, you just made my day. :)
Glad you liked it!
Thank you for writing this!
Thanks for reading!
Great read, followed and tweeted!
+1 Nice article mate. Lots of things I really should be doing and some actual advice on where to start, great :)
Thanks! Glad you liked it!
This is on the nose. I've been/am guilty of this too! Fortunately I've finally got an idea I'm excited enough about to do/share and have been steadily hacking away at it this week. Still can't get that excited about meetups though ;)
Awesome! I'd love to see it.
LOL at the meetups. I know EXACTLY how you feel. SOOO much garbage to sift through, but there are some good ones. I almost always find at least one person I can talk to. Also, don't feel obligated to keep going to the same one. You'll know if it's a waste of time after the first meeting.
Thanks so much Paul! for years I have felt the same way and this year I made a vow to get out there more. Great to know I'm not alone in this.
Awesome! Keep at it.
