I recently added a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page to to address the most common questions I receive.  It’s been linked from the sidebar for a few weeks now, but I’m announcing it here in case anyone missed it.

The FAQ is pretty basic right now — about a dozen questions answered — but it’s already saving me a lot of time.  My email volume has dropped considerably (about 30-50%) since I added a FAQ link from the contact page (with the suggestion that people check the FAQ before emailing me a question).

In retrospect I should have done this a long time ago.  The task of creating a FAQ sat lingering near the bottom of my to-do list for 2+ years and somehow never became a high enough priority to make it to the top.  Eventually one evening I just decided to write out the answers to a few questions, fell into a good flow, and hammered out a first draft.  The next day I refined it and uploaded it to the site.  It felt good to finally get this item off my plate.

While I’m sure it sounds lame to have such a simple task stuck in limbo for so long, there are dozens of such tasks that all seem straightforward enough, but collectively they amount to hundreds of hours of work.  There’s always one more optimization to be done.  For example, as soon as I wrote the FAQ page, I realized it would be good to add a speaking page as well, so I knocked that off too.  It’s certainly not perfect, but at least it’s online.  Via the ready-fire-aim approach, digital content can always be refined later.

I’m open to suggestions for additional FAQ items as well as feedback on the existing items.  I want to avoid unnecessary bloat, but I’m sure there’s room for improvement.

I want to highlight one FAQ item in particular — the question about republishing and/or translating content from  This is one of my most common questions, so I’ll address it in a separate post.
