    Blockchain is not only crappy technology but a bad vision for the future

    Blockchain is not only crappy technology but a bad vision for the future. Its failure to achieve adoption to date is because systems built on trust, norms, and institutions inherently function better than the type of no-need-for-trusted-parties systems blockchain envisions. That’s permanent: no matter how much blockchain improves it is still headed in the wrong direction.

    How to Skyrocket Your Audience When You Don’t Have One

    There are always times that you spend hours on an article and when you finally release it to the public, you get crickets. No one is reading your work and this can be extremely discouraging when you’ve been working so hard to be a writer.

    Use this Strategy to Craft Captivating Blog Post Introductions

    When I was a little kid, I fell in love with a book and read it so many times that I nearly memorized the first page. Here’s the book’s opening line: "Where’s Papa going with that ax?" said Fern to her mother as they were setting the table for breakfast. Do you know what book it’s from? It’s the first sentence of the children’s classic Charlotte’s Web by E. B. White. Now go back and read that opening line again. It really grabs your attention, doesn’t it?

    What to do when writing becomes more of a chore than a charm

    or relatively new writers like myself, the excitement and enthusiasm for writing can quickly change from ecstasy and intense delight to pure drab nonsense. At a point, you may begin to ask yourself, “is this even worth it?” or, “why am I fooling myself on the internet and social media?” If you are feeling that way, you are not alone.

    Teachers can’t afford Miami rents. The county has a plan: Let them live at school.

    Miami-Dade’s school system and housing department have a plan to build low-rent apartments at Phillis Wheatley Elementary and at an expansion school at Southside Elementary in Miami. The rents would be targeted at teachers caught in a pricey real estate market.

    Being a Writer

    Calling yourself a writer and being a writer are two different modes of thought. And the latter is certainly more difficult to do, though at times, both can seem equally frustrating. People who do not write will not understand you when you tell them you do. They’ll ask why. They’ll say things like “have you written something I might’ve read?” or “I’ve always wanted to write a book.” They won’t comprehend the amount of work and the amount of suffering that this type of soul-su...

    Why You Should Keep Writing When You Just Want to Quit

    I almost gave up writing back in 2011. My blog was full of musings I’d published for five years. It felt good to do it. And I hoped someone would care. Outside a handful of friends, no one did. So I quit. It bothered me all night every night until I made a decision that would change my future as a writer.

    Small b blogging

    There’s an idea that starting a blog is harder than it used to be. That there used to be a way to write a few words, slap it online and wait for the traffic to roll in. I call BS. It’s not that it’s not true exactly - but that kind of thinking is living in the shadow of the Digg homepage. I’d like to propose a new mental model for blogging - small b blogging. Let me show you what I mean.

    The Two Magic Words That Will Strengthen Your Writing

    It’s a Thursday afternoon, and I’m a teaching a group of restless sixth graders some of the finer points of English grammar. As you can probably guess, this isn’t the easiest task in the world. Several of the students are beginning to whisper back and forth to each other and laugh under their breath. Two others are absorbed in drawing pictures on their worksheets. Another looks like he’s about to fall asleep. I realize I only have a few minutes before I lose complete control of the class.

    5 Invaluable Lessons I’ve Learned From Decluttering My Content

    I had just finished my last 4th-grade essay, and I couldn’t wait to show my teacher. “I’m finally done, Mrs. Anderson.” “Oh, great job,” she said as she grabbed the 2-gigabyte flash drive from my hand. “Let’s review it one last time.” Everything was going smoothly. I could see her cursor gliding across my introductory sentences, never stopping to make changes. “Perfect,” I thought. “I must’ve done somethin righ…” The sound of a mouse click interrupted my tho...
