I have been sending out the Useletter every Saturday since June 2013. Many people have asked me how I find and organize the tips I share. Here’s my basic process.
Can’t see the video? Watch it here.
1. Consume LOTS of content
My sources include podcasts, blog posts, YouTube videos, newsletters, ebooks, books, social media or whatever else I can find. I funnel most of it into Feedly.
2. Organize the content as I consume
I try to organize all incoming info into categories in Feedly, but…that system works a lot better in my head.
As I’m reading, I save anything Useletter-worthy in Evernote (referral link).
I have tags in Evernote corresponding to the basic topics I share in the Useletter and tag things as I go.
3. Write the Useletter
When I’m ready to write the Useletter, I use my editorial calendar to see which topics I’m due to cover. I write up the tips in Mad Mimi (referral link). (If you’re looking for an email service provider, Mad Mimi is easy & dreamy.)
