In this episode, I talk about a concept I heard on the In Beta podcast about how to approach self-promotion; I talk about “appeal burnout” and being overwhelmed by calls to action; I talk about famous people using crowdfunding, and how the concern is less that they are subtracting money from the system and more that they are subtracting goodwill; I talk about Ben Franklin and his self-improvement regimens and how I might be trying to change too much stuff all at once in my life;
This week on Hide and Create, Diana Rowland, Jordan Ellinger, Moses Siregar and Joshua Essoe talk about making money as a traditionally published author, a tie-in author, an indie writer, and a freelance editor.

Stephen Schettini in conversation with Ken McLeod about whether Buddhism matters today
Storytelling nights, Instagrams of everything you did last week, tweeting bowel movements; from these things it’s easy to get the impression that everyone is a special, precious flower. But if we’re all special, then really, nobody is special.
