I’m never quite sure whether I should link to my blog posts from here. So, I started this thread, where I figured I could make note of new articles.
If you don’t want me to do this, just say “no,” “go away,” or something of the sort, and I’ll abandon the thread. On the other hand, if any of you find this stuff useful, I’m happy to share it.
Here’s one from today: http://www.erickarjaluoto.com/bl…
no issues here. always good to see what peeps here are up to.
Cool. Is this an official thread for when any QBNr posts updates to their blog, or is this just for your blog only?
Your first mistake is not naming the thread "read of the day"
we only respond to "of the day" threads on here
How we fixed our studio’s cash-flow problem: http://www.erickarjaluoto.com/bl…
- nice post, thanks :)Gnash
- would love to see an update after a while.Gnash
- I’m not sure if there’ll be one. We’re trying to taper our services work so we can focus on our startup.karj
- But, if our startup fails, I’ll probably need to come back to this. ;-)karj
- good luck!Gnash
- Really good article. As a freelancer, I face a lot of the issues you mentioned.studderine
- I think most of us have experienced these sorts of challenges—for the most part, though, folks don’t want to talk about these things.karj
dammit i keep clicking on this link thinking there is a good book to read. good click bait title gets me everytime, but when i remember its seo white paper shit i lose all caring
- Not sure what to do about that. If the mods want to change the title, I’m fine with that.karj
- I’m confused about the “SEO white paper” comment, though. These are just personal opinions. I share them with hopes that they’re helpful.karj
- I don’t think there’s much SEO benefit to any of them. If there is, it’s news to me.karj
- Just one more thought: If others want to post books (and other blog articles) here, I think they should.karj
- Eh just venting on the title. I don't expect it to change or would even consider it. And there's a book one somewhere.deathboy
- And just looked at it. Looks like a personal blog back linking to your social app project. Maybe it's a passion project but it looks like content creation fordeathboy
- SEO. Nothing wrong with that. You have your opinion online and might as well use it to back your business. Me i just have mine and im sick of generic white papedeathboy
- r that is oh so much filler without any revelations. "monster" People feel uncertain and unsure about objectives...deathboy
- Don't take it personally. I rant about this shit to co-workers and theyre like hey its business you'd be surprised how well it works, and analytics noise..deathboy
- There’s really no SEO to it. I write stuff I notice. I figure these observations might be useful to some.karj
- I don’t really have much need for SEO. I only take on a small amount of design work, so I’m not trying to grow that.karj
- I link back to Officehours, but it isn’t much of a growth strategy. Not that many people read my blog.karj
I feel totally the opposite, I always enjoy Karj's posts. He's willing to discuss how our own BS can hold us back, with himself as the subject. You've gotta be pretty brave to call out your own bullshit for the world to see, just to make a point. I hope he keeps writing. I'll keep reading.
- brave to call out your own BS to make a point... would it be better not to BS and let that be the point? ... but than u would have no product...deathboy
- all the white paper tedtalk stuff i find so terrible. I buy misc mag just to keep up on the shit being sold though. saw a whole 2 pg written about nothing b4deathboy
- that magazine can sell shit like no other. and quite the fancy ads in it too... ive probably been played into buying a mag full of shit becausedeathboy
- the market is full of shit and now you have to keep up on the shit so u know what shit to sell.deathboy
- ive never read karjs shit, so maybe its good but i have the feeling its the same as everything else and much prefer a good book recommendationdeathboy
- Thanks monNom—glad you like the posts.karj
It’s pretty easy to get down on difficult customers, but it’s the ones who say nothing that I’m more concerned about: http://www.erickarjaluoto.com/bl…
- i've adamant (only recently truth be told) about asking my clients "give me 3 things i could've done better on our project"bklyndroobeki
- i've been*bklyndroobeki
- That seems like a smart approach. I think folks like having an opportunity to be heard, like that. :-)karj
