Hey guys, I just wanted to write quick post talking about some of the changes I’ve made around Life Notion recently. I also want to discuss some of the things I want to do with this blog, and of course get your opinion on the blog itself.
Wasting no time, let’s talk business ;-):
1. You Deserve A Reward
I’ve decide that I want to start rewarding the people who take the time to leave a comment on Life Notion a little better. I will almost always visit your website if you leave a link to it in the comments, but I felt like I could start doing more.
I really feel like you guys do a great job writing high quality comments and sparking great conversations. It means a lot that you read my posts in the first place — but commenting on them means even more.
So, I’ve done 2 cool things for you:
1. Comment Leaderboard
The leaderboard is located in the sidebar, in a fairly noticeable place on the site. It will display your name and your website — so long as you fill in the URL field when you go to leave a comment.
This will appear on nearly every page of Life Notion and will be sure to get you some great link juice for your blog as they are all DoFollow links!
As you can see, the higher you rank — the more noticeable your link becomes. Best start ranking! The leaderboard resets at the end of every month!
I’m sure you are aware of what CommentLuv does. After your comment, it will automatically grab your latest blog post and link to it at the end of your comment here. It’s awesome, and allows you to share your great writing with the rest of the community here.
All of this stuff is great, but I don’t want to see it abused! Try to avoid throwing keywords into your username, and don’t spam. I doubt we’ll have to worry about this seeing as everyone who comments already leaves great stuff, I just want new readers to be aware!
2. The Votes Are In: And You Like Life Notion!
Each month, I am going to ask you a new question in the poll. All you have to do to answer, is click the answer you support the most and press “Vote!” You can see what other people chose (anonymously) after you vote.
Since Life Notion is new, I decided to ask you guys what you thought of this site. I feel like it got a great response, and it turns out that you guys love Life Notion!
A big thanks to everyone who voted in that poll, and be sure to vote in the new poll in the sidebar now!
3. Plans for the Future
The community here is really shaping up, and I’m doing my best to get new faces around here to take part in the comments and other things.
Now that we have a little something going, I want to start putting into some action some new ideas I have that I think will add even more value to Life Notion.
I won’t say much now…but I can tell you that if you decided to signup to the newsletter, you’ll start to see some of the things I’m talking about sitting comfily in your inbox shortly.
4. Have You Seen These Things?
Real quick, I just want to share a few links with some cool stuff I think you should check out. They are valuable articles, and a pretty cool feature from Life Notion you may not have seen.
The Life Notion Bookshelf
I want to make reading a big theme around here, since I love to read and personally believe that reading is an important part of becoming a smarter and more developed person. So, I compiled a list of some of the books I’ve been reading lately, and challenge you to find something you like from my bookshelf and consider reading it for yourself.
- Writing Daily for a Better Your
I wrote a guest post on Justin Mazza’s blog, Mazzastick about the value of writing everyday. It’s a pretty interesting read, and one that I think will open your eyes to trying something new.
- The #1 Easily Fixed Flaw in Your Workflow That is Holding You Back
Another guest post on Life Optimizer, I write about the one thing that holds you back from getting even more work done, and how to combat it.
- Look at This When You Need Help Solving a Problem
This is a post on Life Notion I wrote a while back, and wanted to make sure you saw. I feel like it is one of the most important posts I’ve published here, and I’d like you to take a quick glance at it right now.

That about wraps up this post, and now I want to turn it over to you: what do you think of Life Notion so far? Has the content here helped you at all in your own life? What kind of stuff would you like me to write about more? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
