SVBTLE is a New Innovative, Modern Publishing Platform

SVBTLE is as written, “A new kind of magazine.” It’s a publishing platform that is membership based so in order to become a member you need to be someone with a presence on the online and a history of high-quality writing.

If you’re looking for a new publishing platform to get your content out there, consider sending in an application at Svbtle as well. Aside from it’s innovative background, SVBTLE also has a very clean, modern, and polished look that makes every post very professional.

Inbox Zero by Merlin Mann

Tackle your e-mail.

Raymond A. Guzman

If you’re feeling defeated by e-mail than you should look into Merlin Mann’s Inbox Zero system for handling e-mail. You can find information on his blog,, and his book site, It’s more complex than I intend to describe it here, but it’s what I’ve ussd for years now and it works.

For me Inbox Zero breaks down to two major points:

1. Designate the Times When You Look at Your E-mail

You have to define when you sessions will occur and you have to force yourself into sticking to that schedule. Whether it be once at night, once in the morning, or two times a day, stick to it.
