My Writing

I have authored or co-authored two books:

My most popular blog posts, based on traffic:

And these are some of my personal favorites:

I’ve transitioned all my writing here now, but I used to write some stuff on Medium. Here are some of my favorite pieces (not necessarily the most popular):

Reading and Updates

I keep a brief log and reflections on the books I read. Some are good, some are great, some are just okay. I’m also on Goodreads, but don’t keep it very updated.

I also send out an irregular email update with a summary of the best stuff I’ve read on the web, plus a summary of what I’ve written here. There are currently a little over 200 subscribers. You can also read past issues of my email updates at that same link.

How to reach me

The easiest way to find me is on the Twitterwebs: @BlairReeves

Other than Twitter, this blog is probably the best place to set a sense of what’s on my mind lately.

If you want to drop me a line, I look forward to hearing from you. (I think.) blair (at)


Thanks for reading!
