I’m Paul,

Here’s what’s been going on.

(This is a now page, and if you have your own site, you should make one, too.)

People often ask me what I’m doing now. Each time I would type out a reply, describing where I’m at, what I’m focused on, and what I’m not. However in the effort to systematize things I’ve made this /now page inspired by Derek Sivers.

The /now page, A simple link. Easy to remember. Easy to type.

It’s a nice reminder for myself, and an easy place for you to see what is going on.

This is from Paul Kortman, Founder and CEO of Connex Digital Marketing. To see what’s going on with his other hobbies see HomeAlongtheWay’s /now page.
