Stuff I wrote: February 2014

Writing Fountain penOne of the very few silver linings to one of the worst winters I’ve ever experienced is that there’s adequate time to read. Whether you’re curling up with a magazine or checking out a book on your e-reader, if you’d like some light fare, see if any of the posts I wrote in February strike your fancy. There’s even an ebook in here!

Health and fitness

  • A strength-building water workout (Experience Life). This is an awesome water workout written by Brian Tabor of Strong Made Simple. Brian is an amazing coach and has led injured San Diego Chargers football players in similar exercises to the ones in this workout, so take a look–especially if you have access to a pool. Experience Life is also a top notch resource for health and fitness information, and they have links to lots of other water workouts as well.
  • Brain training: does it work? (Performance Menu, $3) If you’ve ever thought of buying a Lumosity subscription, check out my analysis in the February issue of the Performance Menu to read about my experience.


  • Could Dataminr be a journalist’s new best friend? (Content Strategist). I’m SO excited to be writing for Contently’s blog (they are seriously smart), and my firt post for the Content Strategist is just a quick rundown of what Dataminr is and what it can do.


  • Make your marketing mobile (VerticalResponse) This is a fantastic guidebook if I do say so myself; I interviewed Ethan Marcotte (the grandfather of responsive design) as well as mobile marketing strategist Curt Prins for this informative ebook. If you’re looking to get started with mobile marketing, this is it.


  • UFC 170 Roundtable ( I got to be a panelist on Jack Encarnacao’s roundtable discussion of the UFC 170 card; so exciting!

Thanks for checking these out. I hope you found something useful. Until next month, which will hopefully be a lot warmer…

I want to get posts like this delivered to my inbox.


  1. Great job on the Gunnar Nelson piece.

  2. Thanks! What did you like about it?

  3. A Strength-building water workout. Now that’s something I think I’d enjoy, what with warm weather beginning to peek in. Plus, my son’s place has got a pool, so that will suit me just fine.
