It has been a full seven years since I began writing here on redmarketer. At the time of inception, this blog was mostly oriented around marketing in the new age. Digital presence for most companies was still relatively nascent. I worked at a small company at that point but was readying myself for business school [...]

At the start of the year I wrote a lot about short term goals–things to be achieved for this year. It’s something that has become part of my life, looking at what’s happened in the past year and setting a course for improvement over the next. It’s really enjoyable, and much like this blog, gives [...]
I just realized why time is so crucial to writing, which is sad given how obvious this is.
When you initially write something, the writing is usually full of emotion…from something.
It may be emotion of remembrance or the elation of “discovering” an idea. Discovering something in your own mind is after all as invigorating as anything [...]
A very large component of writing this blog, or critical thinking in general, is being in the correct mind state. There are ideas all around you waiting to be plucked and discussed. Our mere existence necessitates understanding and explanation of why we do the things we do. Yet most of us wouldn’t take the time [...]
What should I be using it for? It struck me pretty odd that when my hard drive crashed I didn’t have anything really significant other than pictures. I’d taken a few trips (Seoul, New Zealand, Mexico) over the years and it would be nice to keep those, but beyond that the only thing that legitimately [...]
Yesterday while searching for some of my old Facebook posts where I was considering leaving the site and eventually did, it became apparent that each of my old posts has had an advertising area added to it!
I previously never used ads, and still don’t here, due to the fact that this site isn’t for making [...]
I see a lot of bloggers without comments sections now. I am considering getting rid of comments for a few reasons.
First off, people don’t really comment here all that often. I haven’t really tracked my traffic for sometime, but when I last did it was around 30 hits a day. Definitely nothing earth shattering, but [...]
I don’t know why, but I haven’t really felt like writing a lot lately. I have been watching a lot of basketball and SC2, working a TON and trying to get back in shape. I’m really busy with all of that and writing just hasn’t seemed as important. In general there isn’t a lot exciting [...]
Wow, just went through a few posts and realized that the overall quality of my writing on this blog has gone down the shitter. Typos, poor sentence structure and the like are rampant! Yuck. I can honestly say it’s a derivative of my dearth of time to write with focus. I swear, I’m not on [...]
A long time ago, when I started this blog, I thought that I was faced with a choice. That choice was basically surrounding how to use this and what it was for. I saw a lot of writers who really were all about self promotion or company promotion. In fact, that’s WHY I saw them. [...]
