My name is Jens-Petter Berget. I am the author of slymarketing. The blog is mainly about marketing and writing. I am a solo entrepreneur with my own marketing business, it’s a Norwegian company called Berget Marketing. I am also a writer, and I have published one short story on Amazon. The story is called Fuzzy and it’s all fiction. I have written my first novel, it’s called Lizarraga, and it was published for the Kindle (Amazon) in February 2013.
At the moment, my blog is not updated as often as I would like. The reason is simple. I don’t have the time. I am writing my first novel, and I’m working 100% with clients. I am usually publishing new articles two times a week.
What I write
What I remember, or what I think that I remember, is that I first created this blog in order to learn marketing. I believe that I created it in order to get in touch with like-minded people, that’s people with a passion for marketing, from all across the world. I wanted to share my thoughts, and I wanted to learn.
I’m still writing about my experience with marketing, but I’m also writing about my personal experience in life. It’s a personal blog, and I don’t just want to write about marketing, although marketing is what it’s mostly about. But don’t be alarmed if I add a few sentences about my eating habits, or some of the movies I have watched recently. I write what comes to my mind, and sometimes when I shouldn’t have hit the publish button, I did it anyway.
The writing process
I write every single day, but most of what I write will never be published. Usually, I publish an article on this blog two times a week, but sometimes I’ll publish once a week, and other times I might publish every day of the week. What you need to know is that you’ll get fresh content every week, that’s a promise.
When I get an idea, I try to write it down, either on a piece of paper, on my iPhone or on my MacBook, or I might try to remember the idea. It all depends on where I am. Then, when I have the time to write, I’ll sit down where ever I’m located and start writing. I’m not hiding inside an office anymore.
I usually use various software to structure my blog post and add as many thoughts as possible. I have added a page for all the various resources I am using.
I’ve told you my name. And you might already know that I’m from Norway. I’m 40 years old, I have a wife and three kids. I used to play basketball, now I’m mostly running to stay fit.
I am usually the only writer at slymarketing. It could be that I add a guest post now and then, but usually it’s all me. I spend as much time as possible with my family, but I also spend about 8 hours a day at work, but never just inside the office.
I have a masters degree in political science, but I work as a solo entrepreneur in marketing.
I am writing a newsletter for my most dedicated readers. This newsletter is all about the most important marketing tips, and I usually publish it every Sunday. It’s completely free and packed with marketing advice that works. Subscribe to the newsletter, and receive it every Sunday morning.
