I wanted to take a moment and tell you that during this Thanksgiving holiday, I am extremely thankful for each and everyone of you who have been a part of the Podcast Answer Man community.
I was originally going to take the week off this week, due to Thanksgiving, and next week due to the fact that I'll be on vacation with my family. However, I know that I recently took a week off, just two weeks ago, while I was out of town speaking at the Platform Conference. This on top of the fact that there isn't an episode of the Serial Podcast, I thought I'd go ahead and put together and episode for you.
Journaling For Blog Content Strategy
In this episode, I shared how beneficial journaling has been to me over the years. Recently, I've fallen in love with the Day One App for iOS and Mac computers. I've been journaling like crazy and publishing nearly everything I've written on my Tumblr account at gspn.tumblr.com.
I share how I've also been using this content in my social media channels like Twitter and Facebook. More importantly, I've shared how this app has actually got me back into the habit of blogging as well.
In fact, here are the links to the three blog posts I mentioned in this episode:
An Interview With Michael Hyatt
Also in this episode, I share a conversation with my great friend, Michael Hyatt. Michael shared his thoughts on journaling and the benefits that he has seen as a result of the practice. We also discussed how he, also, is asking himself the question “What do I want to be when I grow up?” Michael shared his process for how he's moving forward during this time of seeking clarity for the future direction of his brand. We also talked about the upcoming launch of his Best Year Ever Program.

Upcoming Event Schedule
One of my favorite things about traveling to, and speaking at conferences, is meeting members of my community. I always make it a point to host a community meetup wherever I travel.
Below is a list of events that you might be interested in. If you can make it to any of these events, I'd love to have the opportunity to meet you. If you are not able to attend the event, but are in that area, I'd still love for you to come to the personal community meetup that I will host in that town.
