I've made the decision to change the name of the site.
You're Making Me > Visual Productivity
Going forward, everything I produce will come under the VisualProductivity.net banner. I think the name gives you a much better idea of where my focus lies, and it's a lot easier for people to type in. It has been a point of confusion to have a site name with an apostrophe. The last reason is that I'll no longer have to compete with Toni Braxton's You're Making Me High video. LOL.
What was I thinking back then.
The original site name of YoureMakingMe came from a speech I gave several years ago. Here's a 5 minute version of that speech if you're interested.
I haven't presented that You're Making Me speech in years, but the name stuck around as I thought it would be too hard to change.
Now that I'm in Abu Dhabi, I've had the chance to focus on my next steps. Most notably, I'll be continuing the heavier focus on mind mapping and “Visual” techniques that relate to productivity.
I have a lot of content already in the pipeline, and now that I've made the changes to the website, I'll start rolling out the blog posts again.
You can look for two main types of content:
Mind mapping from the ground up
We'll slow down and take a good hard look at some of the questions I often answer in emails, but have never done posts of. We'll talk about the specifics of mind mapping, like which programs to use and HOW to use them.
Intermediate and Pro tips – including more complex systems
I get emails all the time from people who have incredibly elaborate systems setup for their work flow. I love hearing about what mind maps and other visual tools are being used for, so we'll delve into that as well. We'll look into tips for intermediate to advanced users.
The podcast won't be going anywhere. I'm still not sure whether it's best to delete everything and start from scratch, or to just continue on. I'm leaning toward carrying on as before, but refocusing the show a bit.
Any more changes?
Nope. Besides still needing a logo, and verifying that all old links point to the new places, there's nothing else to change.
I'll be reviewing all of my products and re-branding them as I go, but if you've bought something from me in the past, you'll still have access to it like always.
That's it for now. If you have any comments, you can share them down below.
Thanks for your continued support,
