• Announcement: Removing FeedPress and Newsletter Support

    February 21, 2023

    I’ve been using FeedPress for years, but the service itself seems to be running on life support while also increasing in price. I’d rather put that money into a service that is more creator-focused, maybe SubStack or something like that.

    If you have an email subscription to this blog, it will be going away. The RSS feed will continue to work, but will not have the fancy formatting it used to have. Should I replace the email newsletter functionality with something else, I’ll post on Twitter (assuming it is still around), Mastodon, and on this site.

  • Groundhog Day Resolutions Kickoff 2023!

    February 6, 2023

    I started 2023 by relocating my home office back to the basement It’s time again for my yearly “Groundhog Day Resolutions” (aka GHDR). As I’m posting new content to the new website, that’s where you can find the kickoff post. It’s a “live” document that may change, but I think the current draft captures the gist of what I’m doing this year: incorporating ADHD and ASD mitigations into the productivity system. The kickoff post outlines the starting ideas.

  • Yearly Updates of ETP Journal, Compact Calendar

    December 29, 2022

    I’ve finally gotten around to making the yearly updates to The Compact Calendar and ETP Journal (paid download).


    Compact Calendar 2023 Head on over to the Compact Calendar page and download this year’s packages. As usual, they are in an editable Excel format and include two years in PDF form (both A4 and US paper sizes).

    I’ve made some improvements to the Excel file itself to make it easier to update, and new for the US version is the inclusion of the new Juneteenth Federal Holiday.


    ETP Journal 2023 Shop Listing Also I’ve updated the 365-page Emergent Task Planner Journal for 2023. This comes in two packages for US and A4 paper sizes, including a full-size and half-size version in color and a weight-adjusted monochrome version. I’m charging $20 per package of 12 files. The other way you can get it is to become a $1 Patreon supporter, which gets you the paid stuff as well as the free stuff I make. A few people have, um, “saved money” by subscribing for a month and then immediately cancelled. This is fine; it’s interesting to see how many people have availed themselves of this to get a sense of the perceived value of my work.

    This might be the last year I make this journal with the current process because it’s pretty tedious. Hopefully in 2023 I’ll develop the dynamic layout tools I’ve been dithering on for years so customization is much easier!

    In Other News

    I’m wrapping up this year’s Groundhog Day Resolutions over on my new site at While the final report of the year is posted, I’d like to do a year end review as well. A lot of huge insights this year, particularly with regards to recognizing ADHD and ASD traits as persistent blockers that I can now work around.

    I’m well into my 2023 planning, which I’m doing with a bunch of regulars over on the DS|CAFE Virtual Coworking Discord. Come on by and plan the new year with us, share your experience and tips, and enjoy our collective company! :-)
