I’m starting over.
Hey, I’m Corbett Barr.
You might know me from Fizzle or The Fizzle Show. Or maybe from Palapa or Lifestyle Business Weekly, or Think Traffic, or Expert Enough or even way back before all that.
If you’ve seen my social media profiles lately, you may have noticed I deleted everything.
I’m also going to be deleting many of my blog posts, side projects, videos, podcasts and more soon.
It’s time for a clean sweep. Call it spring cleaning (or maybe a midlife crisis?), I’m “starting over” in a way.
Maybe you’ve considered something similar. I know it’s trendy to delete your accounts, but I didn’t want to go that far. Social media can be a great tool for connecting with people and growing an audience. There’s a lot of good there, despite the bad. So, instead of cancelling my accounts, I’m going to re-evaluate how I exist online.
I’m going to consolidate my online life and define a new vision for my next decade on the Internet. After 500+ blog posts, 400+ podcast episodes, 30,000+ Fizzle members and millions of visitors across half a dozen websites, this is overdue.
Where will this all lead? I have some ideas, but there is still a lot to think about and discuss.
If you want to join the conversation, or are just curious to see what happens next, join my newsletter below and I’ll send you my thoughts and plans as they take shape.

About the author
Hi, I’m Corbett Barr. I write about the creator economy 🧑🎨 digital minimalism 🧘 and tech for social good 🙌.
I’ve been self employed online since 2005, earning a living from blogging, podcasting, online courses, memberships, SaaS and more. I’ve bootstrapped, freelanced, consulted and raised venture capital.
Recently, I started over to refocus on writing, and to reevaluate my digital self.
I’m a big fan of digital media and techology, but I believe we should all be using it more mindfully and that technology itself should be a force for social good.
I write a weekly-ish newsletter for people who make things on the Internet. I hope you’ll subscribe:
