Monday Soup

1 part broth, 1 part noodles, and 3 parts aquarium water.

+ Currently reading: The $100 Startup by Chris Guillebeau (and loving it) as well as The Circle Maker by Mark Batterson (a book on prayer that I’m really enjoying as well). I’ve got a copy of Michael Hyatt’s Platform on the shelf, but that will have to wait. (Amazon affiliate links)

+ I’m going to be making some big changes to the Killer Tribes Blogger Community soon. Still working out all the details, but I haven’t been this excited about a project in a while. Actually, that’s a lie…I’m almost equally excited about the eBook I’m working on that I hope to release later this summer. That one will be a little more humor and a little less bloggy than 31 Days to Mojo. More on both things soon.

+ Speaking of 31 Days to Mojo, it continues to sell really well at Amazon. Sales had been slowly inching down the last 3 months but this month is going to give January a run for best month of the year. I’ll probably hit the 2500 copies sold milestone this summer, which is amazing! The book is written for bloggers, but if you’ve been on the fence about starting a blog, pick up a copy and see if it doesn’t inspire you (or at least make you laugh).

+ Our family did our first every Geocaching excursion this weekend, hiking and looking for geocaches at Chickie’s Rock in Western Lancaster County. We only found 1 of the 3 caches we were looking for, but it was a blast. We had a picnic dinner at the top of the rock, which overlooks the Susquehanna River. Good times.

+ My favorite thing about that picture? The guy who took it for us had clearly never touched an iPhone before. He handled it like it was made of plutonium and he needed me to tell him how to snap the picture. He gave it back to me with a big smile on his face and said, “that thing’s pretty cool.”

+ I’m strongly considering getting back into the podcasting game again. Producing the Freshpod was a blast, and I’m not sure if I want to revive it or take my podcast in another direction. Do y’all listen to podcasts? And if you do, what direction would excite you most if you heard I was putting out a new one? More interviews with creative folks like the FreshPod? A focus on blogging/building tribes? Or maybe a little more freeform where I have some of my more entertaining friends on (and other entertaining folks) and we riff on pop culture/sports/books/life and everything else (in the vein of the BS Report)?

If you’ve got two cents, please share in the comments!

Have a great week! See you on the flip side.
