Almost every interview I do these days for podcasts or magazines involves the inevitable question: “What are your best productivity tricks?” That’s why it was so refreshing to do an interview with Dan Benjamin on his excellent show, The Pipeline, and never have to answer that question. Instead Dan wanted to chat about my progression from a day coder and no-name night blogger back in 2001 to a “pro blogger,” about what made Lifehacker a success (hint: it’s not talent, it’s a big platform and LOTS of posts over the course of years), about self-publishing books, and about what I think an aspiring blogger these days has to do to make blogging a full-time job. Good times. Check it out: The Pipeline 10: Gina Trapani
Dan is truly a great interviewer, and that Pipeline show is my new favorite.
