As I devote more time to book projects (I’m working on three of them right now) and my band The Spyders, I’ve been blogging less and less. Rather than 3-4 new blog posts a weeks, I seem to be producing more like 1-2 every 2-3 weeks. For now, I’ll probably continue with that schedule, posting articles that I think are timely and worthwhile when the need or compulsion arises.
In the meantime, there are other great informative blogs and newsletters that I highly recommend. If you are an agent, one newsletter you should subscribe to today is Chris Burand’s Insurance Agency Adviser. To illustrate, here is his latest monthly edition:
