Have you ever been camping? It’s in-tents! (this newsletter is not about camping) [2017-11-14]

What’s new this week? Not a whole lot. I’m taking Codecademy’s Build Websites from Scratch intensive. As soon as it’s done, I’ll be sure to write a review. If it’s good, I’ll take their other intensives, too, and review them as well. In case you missed it last week… How to Begin and Complete November Continue reading Have you ever been camping?

Here’s what I wrote this week [2017-10-31]

I’ve been super busy so all I have for you this week is this epic 6000+ word guide on how to make money playing video games. You can read it here: https://medium.com/@garrettmickley/gaming-for-fun-… You will need a free Medium account to read it, and it’s behind a paywall of sorts BUT you can read 3 free ones Continue reading Here’s what I wrote this week [2017-10-31]

How could I make this newsletter better? [2017-10-24]

I was just wondering, would you prefer multiple emails a week? It would be one for each time I post something new, but the email would contain the entire post and you wouldn’t have to click through to read on the website. OR Would you rather receive 1 email, weekly, as a digest of everything Continue reading How could I make this newsletter better? [2017-10-24]

Society would probably be a lot better if we just listened to each other. [2017-10-17]

Time for an update on what I’ve been working on! mnmlwbdsgn I have no updates for this except that I have received complaints about the Coinhive miner so I’ll be removing that in the next update. Apparently people don’t trust it, and don’t like their CPU jumping to 90%+. Medium I’ve become a Medium partner Continue reading Society would probably be a lot better if we just listened to each other. [2017-10-17]

My latest struggle and what I learned from a recent conference. [2017-10-05]

I have the perfect client right now.   His project is interesting. He shows up to meetings on time. He sends me information I need when requested. He doesn’t complain. He didn’t even argue the price of the contract.   But I’m not having fun.   It’s not because of him or the project. It’s Continue reading My latest struggle and what I learned from a recent conference. [2017-10-05]

Do you make stuff? My new project is for you. [2017-09-19]

Pretty much everything is on hold now, except for one project. I’ve started taking on freelance clients again, and I’m totally digging the niche. I’m helping artists and makers of all kinds market their creations online. This first new client takes the ashes of your cremated pets (or grandma, I suppose) and puts them into cool blown Continue reading Do you make stuff? My new project is for you. [2017-09-19]

I survived Hurricane Irma but I made one mistake [2017-09-12]

I’m writing this to you on my lunch break at my day job office, because my apartment still doesn’t have power. The good news is, I survived Hurricane Irma. The bad news is, last week I promised you an update on all of my projects and I am unable to deliver. I could blame the Continue reading I survived Hurricane Irma but I made one mistake [2017-09-12]
