Walking in Merlin Mann’s Footsteps and a Book You Should Know AboutApril 29th, 2012 · 3 comments
Two brief administrative notes…
A2 Earns an A
When I first started blogging in 2007, I needed web hosting. I noticed that Merlin Mann had a note on 43 Folders about his happiness working with a company named A2 Hosting. That was good enough for me: I signed up for their introductory package.
That was five years ago and I’ve been nothing but happy with their service ever since. Now, in a nice bit of circularity, they’ve agreed to sponsor Study Hacks in much the same way they were sponsoring 43 Folders back when I got started with blogging.
So if you’re looking for web hosting, you have my recommendation.
Community College Success
Speaking of recommendations, I have one more to make. An important segment of my readers is community college students. I like these students because they are often way more pragmatic than their counterparts at four year institutions. They see school as an investment and want to get the most out of the money they put in, and therefore they tend to focus more on the nitty-gritty of their strategies (which I enjoy) and less on whether their major is their passion (which I don’t enjoy).
Anyway, a shortcoming of my student writing is that I’ve never done systematic studies of community college students, so my advice in this area is somewhat tentative.
This is why I am happy to enthusiastically recommend Isa Adney’s new book: Community College Success.
If you’re in community college and are looking for advice tailored to your specific setting, Isa’s book is a great place to start.
