Editor's Note January 30, 2015

Thinking about tomorrow's hangout I discuss some of the things to expect over the next week. We have the second episode of the M3 Bearcast, another article by Mark Estes and my article about the meaning of life. We discussed starting a writer's workshop within the M3 writing contriutor's to M3. I also talk about starting a book club and explain the first title that we'll be reading. I hope to produce a podcast episode deciated to just the book and the writer's workshop.

Editor's Note January 23, 2015

Just finished the conference call with my new contributors and I'm very excited about the content that we'll be producing over the next week. I'm cooking diner now and will review the popular news stories of the past week in order to prepare for the hangout tomorrow.

Making the video in this post was really helpful in preparing for the conference call tonight and I plan on making it a regular practice in running M3. I think we had a productive meeting, even though many of us were busy and had to multitask. I think it went well because I put in a lot of extra time preparing for the meeting and I clear sense of purpose. I'm taking my role as editor seriously as I bring on new contributors.

Editor's Note for Jan 6, 2015

I’m not sure how much effort I want to put into writing this personal blog when I have so many other things I need to be doing for M3. At the heart of Male Media Mind was a commitment to writing and producing stellar content. I’m not writing in this blog as a form of vanity; it is a practice that will help me improve my writing and editing skills. Not to mention the clarity and focus I get from the daily practice of journaling. Publishing a few posts a week will only serve to take my private writing to the next level.
