Some miscellaneous updates and news to share…
My Twitter trial is going well. There are 600+ people following me on Twitter so far (my blog obviously bestows an advantage there). I’ve shared some links as well as various minor updates.
I’m grateful for the helpful advice from fellow Twitterers (Tweeters? Twits?). For example, one person told me about Twitterfeed, so I’m using that service as well. Now whenever I make a new blog post, it will automatically be Twittered (Tweeted? Twitterized?) to my Twitter account with a link to the post. Erin’s blog posts will show up there too (in my Twitter account since she doesn’t have one).
Apparently a good way to expandify your vocabulary is to use more online services.
One service I mentioned in a Twitter update was TimeSvr.com. This is basically on online concierge service where you can assign basic tasks (like 20 minutes each) to a virtual assistant. During their current beta test period, you can try this service for free (no stated limit on how much work you can assign to them). I have no connection with them, so I gain nothing if you sign up. I’m just testing the service myself. I can’t give it a thumbs up or down yet, but it looks interesting so far.
PhotoReading discount expires July 31st
The 59% PhotoReading discount for StevePavlina.com readers expires July 31st, so if you want to take advantage of it, this is your last opportunity to do so. These offers have sometimes been extended for a few more weeks, but that isn’t happening this time. It’s only for July.
Los Angeles and Carlsbad trip
I will be in Los Angeles this weekend and then Carlsbad for most of next week.
On this trip I’ll be visiting the headquarters of my book publisher, Hay House, since they’re located in Carlsbad. That wasn’t the main reason for this trip, but since the hotel is just down the street from them, it’s a nice opportunity to meet the people I’ve been working with. I’m especially looking forward to meeting my editor, Jessica Kelley, who did a fantastic job massaging Personal Development for Smart People into something we’re both proud of.
