The other day I did a live interview with worship pastor, blogger, and songwriter David Santistevan. David operates a successful blog that receives great engagement. He adds incredible value to his readers and is making a difference. For that, he is linchpin. I wanted to bring David over for a live interview discussion to pick [...]

Dear Internet, Facebook, Twitter, et al, I bid you a fond farewell. I’m going into my hobbit hole to build something now. ~ Sincerely, Don McAllister I don’t know about you, but I am sensing more and more people are waking up to the realities and dangers of social media. They are experiencing social media fatigue. [...]
Want to know more about how to get published? I recently did an exclusive live interview with my friend Jeff Goins about writing, publishing, building a platform, and more. There is a startling cocktail of useful advice received from Jeff that you don’t want to miss. To help you out, I gathered 30 questions received from [...]

(scratching head..) Apparently I’m not [...]
I had an epiphany today. A lightning bolt struck my mind. And all that was left was a single word seared on my cerebral cortex. That word is: STOP Last year was the year I started. I started writing again, started taking blogging serious, and started getting more involved in church. While I didn’t care [...]
If you’re a blogger or writer, you need to be using Evernote. Evernote® is a platform for human memory, designed to help individuals remember everything™. As a blogger, I use Evernote to curate awesome ideas for Linchpin here, for writing eBooks, and now for referencing favorite tweets. I recently found out I can send tweets [...]
I have heard some say Twitter is like Google+, but I don’t think so at all. I like the Google+, but unfortunately there’s not too much social engagement going on there. I will stick with Twitter and use their list feature, which are kind of like Circles, only much more primitive. (You can’t share specific [...]
There is only one resolution that every leader needs to make this year. This is irregardless of whether you’re an aspiring leader or a more matured, experienced leader. That resolution is embodied in one word: Disobey. It’s more a mantra than a resolution, and the idea that I will be beating to idiotic death here [...]
