As I set myself the task of writing every day for a year, I thought I’d better justify the commitment.

In this post, I’ve conjured up 10 reasons why I should write every day.

Hopefully, they provide you with the justification and inspiration to giving it a go too.

1 — You will become a better writer

Fed up with content marketing book recommendations that turn out to be utter tripe?

That was me too.

When I googled “content marketing books” looking for inspiration and learning so I could better myself as a marketer, I became frustrated and annoyed.

After I reached a boiling point (about 20 bad books in), I decided something must be done to save all you other content marketers out there.

Here is the output of reading 100 content marketing books over the last three years.

Of course, I suggest you buy them all. (I will earn a small affiliate commission if you…

Skype Virtual Backgrounds

Skype virtual backgrounds have taken the world by storm. What we once assumed was a business video conferencing tool is now used for pub quizzes, family catch-ups, and even school lessons.

Us Skypers love its HD video, usability, and helpful features (like screen sharing). But, most of all, people are loving Skype virtual backgrounds.
