Goodbye Written On, Hello

As the title suggests, Written On is closing shop.

I love this blog and over the years have shared more with my blog readers than my own friends. However, as I am now getting older, I felt it was time to grow up and move from to my own personal domain:

So take a deep breath!

My blogging days are not over; you just won't see new posts on this site. But to catch all the same great tips and advice, and keep up with my latest projects, catch me on my new site:

Less a Writer, More the Editor

No excuses. I've been slacking on my writing. But I could probably say that about writing in general for me. My responsibilities have shifted tremendously, and forced me to take the "editor" role more than the writer role these days.

And I love it.

I'm finding it equally as fun and exciting to take a "good" piece of writing, work my magic, and help turn it into a GREAT piece of writing. OK, I'm not saying I'm the best editor out there -- but I am saying I'm having fun improving the pieces of content you may be coming across.
My desk at work

Still running the Best of BuyerZone series, and still loving it! Can't get enough of the incredible bloggers and professional I meet in every edition.

But my latest love is BuyerZone's new series Industry Insights. This series features industry experts from an array of industries: retail, marketing, finance, industrial etc. However, unlike the BoBZ series, I'm letting the experts do all the writing.

Each week, an expert will cover hot topics in their industry. So basically, I get to sit back, read their work and be amazed. And each week, I am.

My Directorial Debut

In case you missed it, I have another video to add to my Video Journalism tab. In this video, I worked with BuyerZone's Editorial Manager, Jeremy Sacco, and turned a whitepaper into a video highlight.

After checking out the video, be sure to read my notes on what works, and what doesn't when making a marketing video: Making the Video: Do's and Don'ts

Also, tune in for BuyerZone's upcoming webinar on The Art and Science of Online Lead Gen


Why the World Will Miss Michael Phelps

It's been a little over a month since the London 2012 Olympics, and I'm already missing Michael Phelps.

This Olympics wasn't about  Phelps breaking more records and making more headlines. This Olympics proved to be his graceful bow out. He left his final mark - and he left it at a level where it didn't have to be all be Gold.

He lost his signature event (200 fly) to a kid who admitted that he studied Phelps, even imagined he was him as the real Phelps swam beside him. Anyone that saw the race and interaction afterwards could clearly see that for Phelps, being an inspiration to Chad Le Clos  overpowered the second place finish.

His 400IM race was just the same. Ryan Lochte had been training to be HIS best, making it his time. But could he have made it without Phelps' constant presence bearing down on him? Probably not.
