WriteHacked is about making you a better writer and self-published author:

This blog is all about the “real life” behind writing — a focus not just on the craft and storytelling stuff, but on the platform building and marketing stuff.

You’re probably already a pretty great writer, so this blog is focused on helping you figure out the other half of becoming a “successful” writer:

Maybe you’re not the best HTML programmer out there, or don’t have the patience to learn WordPress from the ground up. No problem–we’ve got you covered.

Maybe you want to make some money selling your books or work online, but you just don’t really know how. Or it feels too “spammy.” Again, we’ve got you covered.

Whatever it is, there’s probably a post about it here (or there will be soon!). Browse around, ask a question, and get involved!

Why “WriteHacked.com”?

WriteHacked.com used to be called “LiveHacked.com” The “live” half of our name suggested that we shouldn’t just accept the status quo. We don’t need to need be okay with simply living a mediocre life. Instead, “LiveHacked” was about living the life God wants us to live, in the best way possible.

That means enjoying the food we eat, the words we write, and the people we interact with.

Nothings changed with that — that’s still what we believe. We just think that since the topics around here have been almost exclusively on writing, we should rename the blog to fit that idea!

Why “we”?

Alright, I’ve said “we” quite a bit in the last few paragraphs. No, I’m not trying to sound “bigger” than I really am–“we” means that LiveHacked.com is more than just what “I” can do.

“We” means the handful of bloggers, writers, and supporters who help out with the content, ideas, and vision of the site. It’s mostly one guy (see below), but there are other people involved in some processes, like guest posting. If you’re interested in becoming one of these people, send me an email!

About Nick

Alright, the moment you’ve all been waiting for.


Anyway, my name is Nick, and I’m a 26-year-old writer. I love to blog, read, and create awesome things, and I’m currently living in Colorado with a beautiful wife and two dogs.

I’ve written a fiction thriller (similar in style to James Rollins, Clive Cussler, and Steve Barry) called The Golden Crystal. It was a DIY project, and you can read more about why I chose to self-publish here.

In addition, I’ve written a lot of nonfiction guides and books that help creators and writers think, vision, and plan their blog. All of my books are available on Amazon.

Finally, I built this site because I love to connect and interact with people. If you’ve met me offline, you know that’s true, and it’s the same online. Find me on Twitter, Facebook, and Google+, and connect with me. You can also email me directly.
