For the past few months, I’ve been exploring writing online. I’ve completed the Ship 30 For 30 digital writing course. While I did not publish (or write) every day, I still call it a success because I’ve learned so much during the challenge.
  1. Writing and Publishing every day is not for me.
  2. Taking great notes is critical.
  3. It’s easy to lose focus and end up writing about the process.
It’s time for the next chapter:
  • You can follow me on Twitter @ericgregorich.
  • I’ll be sending this newsletter weekly. It will contain any new Essays I happen to write, top Tweets, Notes, and content that I found helpful during the week.
I’ll be writing more about building solutions on the Microsoft platform, with occasional productivity and PKM thrown in. If this is not what you signed up for, you can find the unsubscribe link at the bottom of this email.
I appreciate you sticking with me and would love any feedback or questions. You can reply to this email or DM me on Twitter.

Staring at a screen causes eye strain which can lead to permanent eye damage.

This eye strain is often called computer vision syndrome (CVS) and can cause headaches, fatigue, dry eyes, and long-term damage.

The 20-20-20 Rule is a simple technique to help reduce eye strain.
