Patrick notes : Hiya long-time blog readers. Last year I wrote two articles on career advice for young engineers, largely informed by conversations with a buddy of mine, Ramit Sethi.

Over the last twelve months, I have tagged every message in Gmail I've gotten from someone who applied the advice in those articles to effect in their careers. Sample comments: "Your advice made me $ 20,000 in two minutes.", "Your advice made be $35k", etc etc. …

…Greatest Hits if you want the story in detail. (I also did a video with Andrew Warner and AppSumo on the topic, if you want it described in a more organized fashion than my blog's usual stream-of-consciousness approach.) Eventually, after optimizing the process, I had nearly a thousand pages like this created.

I also have a variety of micro-sites written on exact match domain names, like my favorite, Halloween bingo cards . Honestly, they're not that …

On the final night Andrew Warner opened up his penthouse suite for an afterparty. I would guess we had 60-70 people funnel in throughout the night and it was the ideal private environment to recap, discuss, and process the previous two days.

Mike and I received a ton of feedback, both positive and negative, much of which is appearing in this blog post. That evening was one of the highlights of the conference for me.

Lack of Major Glitches

For a first year conference with two inexperienced …

Yesterday, during an interview with Andrew Warner at Mixergy , I spoke about my early work experience bagging groceries, selling shoes, pumping gas, etc. There's nothing particularly unique about these jobs - they are common jobs. But discussing these jobs churned up a realization that I wanted to write about.

Selling shoes (and tennis rackets) twenty years ago reminded me of selling software today. The shoe world and tennis racket world are very much like the software world. …

…approached me and said "Hey, we'd like to do a video of you talking strategy with Andrew Warner. You guys script it, we'll edit it and sell it." Ordinarily I don't really do e-books and whatnot but that pitch had me at " Andrew", because Mixergy is one of the best sources of consistently actionable advice I've seen, and I want to help him succeed in whatever little way I can.

The topic of the video is Scalable Content Generation. …

…folks here who have been reading me for a while but do not know about Mixergy yet: Andrew Warner does interviews with successful Internet business folks. Most of them are inspiring, and many have killer, actionable tips that you can use in your businesses. (I particularly like the one with the Wufoo guys , Peldi's, and this one by Hiten Shah of Kissmetrics and, earlier, CrazyEgg , which I've mentioned a time or three here.)

Andrew Warner of Mixergy will be interviewing me at 11 AM Pacific tomorrow, which is something like 14 hours from the timestamp on this post. If it is 11 ~ 12 AM Pacific, you can catch the live interview and participate in a chatroom. I'm told the main theme for the interview will be a business biography, so my regular readers are likely going to hear a lot of things you already know ("It makes bingo cards! Wow, fancy that."), but Andrew has a way …

In somewhat related news, I have an interview scheduled with Andrew Warner of Mixergy.com for April 30th at 11:00 AM Pacific time. Andrew tends to do his interviews live, so if you have any questions you want to ask, be sure to tune in to the live chat. Andrew has told me that he hopes to focus on my business biography, so I assume there will be less technical/marketing/ SEO content and more storytelling — it should be fun.

Speaking of which, it looks like he has …
