In August 2006, that is 14 years ago, I started this blog.
Writing online has been one of the best things I started in my life. In the early days, it led to founding my influencer marketing startup Trigami.
These days, it’s a tool for clarifying my thinking and sharing ideas with the world. A creative process that is very satisfying to me.
It also helps me to stay in touch with thousands of people, leading to friendships and fruitful intellectual exchange I enjoy a lot.
Two ways of writing online
There are two ways of writing online. You can create a website around one specific topic, or you can create a personal website.
The topic-specific approach is more like a magazine. The personal one is more like a public diary.
I enjoy the personal format better, because it gives me the freedom to explore any topic I am interested in.
If you intend to generate income from your blog, it’s probably better to focus one one topic.
Most popular posts
In 2019, I started to take my writing more seriously, publishing on average one article per week. This seems to be a pace that is sustainable for me.
Here are my most popular posts in the last 12 months:
- What I Learned at Warren Buffett’s 2019 Berkshire Hathaway Shareholders Meeting
- The Best Habits I Started in 2019
- What People Don’t Understand About Tesla
- Unlocking the Subconscious Mind
- What I Learned About Sales
- My Ultimate Reading List: Books I Revisit Often
My most popular posts tend to be the longer ones.
While I still enjoy writing light-weight posts, I might take this feedback into account and write more longer pieces in the future.
And lastly, thank you for being a reader. It means a lot to me.
