I was the Weekend Editor at Lifehacker from 2011 through 2013, writing over 750 posts in that timeframe. Since my posts were on the weekend, they were more focused on kitchen and home tech tips than on work-related hacks. My routine was to write and publish eight posts each Saturday and seven posts each Sunday.
I’m not going to list each of the posts individually on this blog, but I will provide a link to all of my content on Kinja , the content management system that Gawker created if you want to dive in the deep end.
For everyone else, here is a curated list a few of my most popular posts:
This post was my highest-traffic-ever at over 188k hits. People really love their coffee milkshakes!
This is a personal favorite–who doesn’t love talking about their favorite gear–and it performed well scoring 68k hits. Note this was just before I became an Apple fan, so my tech tools stack is much different these days.
This post synergized dog lovers with RaspberryPi hackers and was a quintessential Lifehacker post. 52k readers agree!
A basic content writing post for Pluot.co (now Daily.co) on what 4K means for televisions and whether or not you need it for your video conferencing needs.
It’s easy to implement a new task management system, but what happens when it goes off the rails? This long-form post served as a way to bring people back to the GTD wagon and introduce the concept for those who found the post without having any idea who David Allen is or what the GTD task management philosophy entails.
In 2016 and 2017 I wrote eleven posts for Sales Tax SaaS TaxJar instructing their customers how to use Resale Certificates in various states. Resale Certificates are essentially a licensure a business can obtain from the state tax commission which allows them to not pay sales tax when buying goods for resale. Like most tax laws, they vary considerably on a state-by-state basis. I wrote posts for Florida, New Jersey, Tennessee, Arizona, Indiana, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Ohio, Wisconsin, Georgia, and North Carolina.
This was a fun post for the personal finance site Wisebread. It’s a list-post that goes through the expected standard lifesaving skills like CPR and the Heimlich Maneuver, but also has a few off-the-wall additions like ‘how to escape from a sinking car’.
In my two-ish years of working as the Weekend Editor at Lifehacker, the now-dead Gawker Media sometimes repubbed my Lifehacker posts onto Gizmodo and Lifehacker Austrailia/Europe. I figure that if they’re getting extra mileage out of my words, I should get an extra byline out of it as well. This post
is one of a few that you can find on Gizmodo if you start following the trail of breadcrumbs.
