I’m Chanpory, and this is my site on how to live and work better as a designer.

What do great blogs like 43 Folders, Boing Boing, Dooce, and Uncrate have in common?

They’re all part of Federated Media, an author-driven advertising network created by John Battelle, founding editor of Wired Magazine. Today, I’m pleased to announce that I’ve accepted an invitation to join this wonderful network of blogs. I’m now an official member of Federated Media!

This means FM will be handling most of the sales and promotion of ad space on this site. I can now worry less about business and more about creating great content.

Before they can start, I need as many LifeClever readers to fill out a short survey. This will help Federated Media make better matches between advertisers and readers. More importantly, it’ll help me improve the content on this site while keeping it free.

I’d like to personally thank Mr. Merlin Mann of 43Folders for recommending LifeClever to FM. It is truly an honor.

Take the survey

Information from the survey will be used for demographic purposes only. Individual information will not be used for marketing directly to the user, or sold to another party.
