H1 Blogging Retrospective

Half a year has gone by and I've made 117 posts on this site, which is 10% below my target of 70% of days (personal OKR). 

June especially has been shameful with four posts. I just felt like some of my last posts were trite. Perhaps it would be better to do twice a week and aim for quality instead? 

Exculpatorily (this is not a word), it feels like we're doing a DTC deal a month at the moment. We recently invested in the $850K seed round of a company in New York and are in contract drafts with a vertical commerce company in the UK ($3 million seed round). We're moving into some verticals we're less familiar with (beverages? sexual wellness?) but we think being contrarian holds the key to acceptable valuations and potentially very fast growth. As long as we can get them the follow-on capital...

I'm delighted that for the first time ever I backed a cold inbound company. That was on the back of the switch in focus to DTC/DNVB. Who says blogging doesn't work?

So here's to a better blogging H2. I'll block time in the calendar every day this month and let's see how that goes.

Tips and tricks and suggestions, just comment below. 

Much love.
