« Personal Productivity Playing Cards! | Main | GTD: A tool for *forgetting*? »

Limited posting next ten days, plus a request for readers

First, for the next week or so I'll be in the Denver area with my family to visit some dear friends who recently moved there, so I'll be skipping a post.

Interestingly, Denver has some big-name productivity consultants, including Sally McGhee (an expert in a neat system with a lot of GTD similarities - see her book) and Laura Stack (a well-known writer and speaker). I haven't yet been introduced to either of them, but I admire them both and would very much welcome any connections you might offer.

Second, I would appreciate some feedback: Contrary to conventional wisdom, I cover a variety of topics here, rather than having separate blogs for each one. My question: Would you prefer separate blogs for productivity/GTD, creativity/ideas, personal growth/development, and consulting/coaching/networking (for example), or do you like the current mix?

Feel free to respond in comments, or email me directly. Thanks!

I would keep it the same, at least for now. If you find later that you have plenty of content for separate sites, then you can always do that after you have that content. I like the current mix, myself.

Having just moved your feed out of my probation folder in my reader I would love to see you keep it the same. I find most of it to be not only valuable and interesting, but connected by a common thread enough to maintain some focus. I'm for keeping it the same!

Since democracy is in the air, my vote would be "the content is Perfect - as is."

The current mix is good :)

I'd go the other way. I'd recommend adding your voice to other, like-minded voices and forming a collective of top-shelf content that drives even more viewership to your combined eyeball-drawing powers. But then again, that's because I'm building a content network.

Hear hear. I read this blog to find out what you, Matt, are thinking. So keep your thoughts in one place thank you.

I prefer single Matt's Idea Mix. TesTeq / Poland

I like the current format...

Hi Matt,

I would keep the content as it is. I like the mixture ;)

Matt: I think the current "mix" is great!

Safe travels. Cheers.

Matt you create great blog! Keep it the way it is; content rich and thought provoking.

Yet another vote for keeping the current mix -- it's all good stuff!

I think Sally McGhee used to work for David Allen, before she split with her own book. The "influence" of her time with David is clear in her work, and imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, particularly among consultants trying to make a living.

I also vote for keeping it the same. I read your blog for the way you intelligently integrate GTD, productivity, creativity, development, etc. I'd hate to see them split up. Plus, I think the need to choose which blog you're writing for might limit your creativity!
My 2 cents.

Thank you all so much for your comments. I will be keeping it as-is for the foreseeable future.

P.S. The trip went quite well, and I got to connect with two of my readers/collaborators (Rainier and Nathan).

Hi Matt,

I prefer it as it is now.

Kind regards

Thanks, Jonathan.

You could try to do both and offer a mixed RSS feed as well as feeds for each of the three categories. I'm in for the mix by the way.

Hi Sebastiaan: I'd love to be able to provide this. Unfortunately, Blogger has some limitations...

Thanks for reading!
