Donate Something Every Day

Clearing away the clutter makes room for the things that matter in life.

What do you have stored up that you no longer need? What is something that could be of use to others but is no longer of much use to you?

Consider going through your things and donate something daily. Failing that, throw away, give away, or sell something every day.

X Could be a Marketing Goldmine in 2024


The userbase for X is declining. Many companies and individuals are going to be withdrawing their ad spend in 2024, if they haven’t already.

That means the greatest opportunity for advertising in 2024 could end up being X, because competition will be greatly reduced, and the cost of ads will also go down.

Consolidate, Minimize & Optimize


In 2024, you can do less with more. Content bloat may hurt you, so consider taking these steps to optimize your website:

  • Prune the content that has nothing to do with what you’re selling.
  • Rework or update relevant content to reflect relevance and intent.
  • noindex content that’s irrelevant but still sends you traffic.
  • If the post you’re thinking about pruning is heavily linked to from third parties, redirect it to another relevant post.
  • Publish new content based on what you’re doing and what you want to be known for now.
  • Refresh high-performing content to ensure long-term viability.
