Martin Luther King Jr. Scholar: 10 Years Later

Almost 10 years ago, I arrived in St. Louis to interview for the Martin Luther King Jr. Scholarship at Saint Louis University. The scholarship had been around for two years, but this year was the first year the college was interviewing candidates before selecting scholarship recipients. The weekend was cold, in the teens, one of …

Fourteen Days into the Venture

hustle hard work

Toward the end of 2015, I decided to try again in 2016 to start my own venture and to forge my own path. Originally, I planned to write a blog post each day (or every other day) chronicling the long, hard and lonely road, especially since information about the beginning of the journey is hard …

Hello, Darkness, My Old Friend

It’s You that Made Me Talk Again! Getting back into writing for myself and blogging on this blog has been an ordeal for the past few weeks. I could never think of anything to talk about. The words did not flow freely! I’d want to write, and surely I’ve stumbled upon something during the day …

I Was Distracted with Poker This Week

I realized about a week ago that WSOP.com is livestreaming the final tables of many of the events taking place this summer, which took away my attention from writing on the blog. Of course, this is something I learn about at the END of the WSOP, when many of the events are already over. Fortunately, …

meetedgar social media tool

I devised a solution at work to attempt to read as many of the articles that we cover as possible. It’s not a perfect solution, as it heavily depends on the writers taking the time to put their sources on the documents, but so far it has been working very well. I can get through …

How Many Articles Can I Peruse in a Workday?

And Can I Finish This Blog Post Before My Fiance Goes to Bed? It seriously freaks me out when my fiance goes to bed before me. I have no idea why. He’s just going to the next room and won’t even completely close the day because the cat needs to be able to go in …

Hustle, Hustle, Hustle

using original content to build a community

I need to work harder. I have 11+ communities that I need to build around 11+ different topics. I don’t have much idea how to do that, let alone doing it quickly, but that is what I need to do at work right now. The only idea I really have is to write. Write blog …

I’m Gonna Start a Podcast

new news podcast

I’ve been considering the idea of a podcast for some time now. I was originally inspired to start a human rights podcast after Amnesty International’s national conference in Brooklyn in March. There was a lot of discussion about building human rights awareness and education and in efforts to encourage¬†young people (like myself) to join and/or …

Is The Doc Filled with News or Noise?

news or noise, determining news over noise,

At work, the editorial team and I used to have a document called, well, “The Doc.” The Doc was a Google Sheet where we placed all the stories we intended to cover and we simply went through the stories in order. We broke the order if an important story broke that needed to get into …

Should I Put My Blog Posts on Medium?

should i put my post son Medium?

Medium, if you don’t know, is an open, easy-to-use platform where anyone can create an account to start writing and to share that writing with the world. Awesome, well known people like Barack Obama and Gary Vaynerchuk have used the platform to publish content, as well as plenty of not-so-awesome, not-so-well known folks. One strategy …
