Recap: 43 Folders' Corvette Summer
Merlin Mann | Sep 2 2008
Welcome back, friend. Per what I wrote in your yearbook back in June, I hope you had a nice summer and stayed sweet and cool. You look great. Did you lose weight or something?
Somewhere along the way over the past few weeks, I seem to have got my game on again here at 43 Folders. I wrote a few items that I'm proud of and that lots of people seemed to enjoy. I'm once again posting about stuff that means a lot to me, and I'm feeling good about the site and where it (and I) will be heading over the next year. (More on that soon)
But, if you were tanning on Ibiza or building houses with Jimmy Carter and missed out on my wordy comeback season, here's a few articles I hope you will enjoy.
It's nice to have you back; I found the Vette, and I'm pumped for Fall.

One of the reasons I've started really enjoying writing for the site again is best summed up in my favorite thing I've written recently -- a three-part series on public attention management for creative types that I called, "Making Time to Make."
It's been a while since I've had such clarity about what I need to do with myself (and, perhaps, more importantly, what I need to be okay with not doing with myself). And these three posts captured what I wanted to say.
If you're in a big rush and only have time to read one thing out of all these links, jump to the third and final article in this series, Making Time to Make: One Clear Line; that's got lots of tips and what have you.
Here's links to all three:
Rest of the Best of the Summer
And here's a few more of the posts that people seemed to like over the past few weeks.
Like I say, welcome back. In case it fell out of your pocket on the train to Paris, here's our site's free RSS feed.
See you in study hall.
