Hello again, my long-lost students. You’d have been forgiven for thinking I’d died or gone on some kind of spiritual quest that involved cutting all ties to the world (or at least the Internet) for the last several months. Really, it turns my stomach to look and see that my last dedicated post was in July.
That’s ridiculous, and that’s my apology: I’m sorry I haven’t been around. I started this blog to give quick and reliable help to the students who are kind enough to frequent my site, and there’s no excuse for it. I mean, I have reasons (I’m a busy person, I run businesses, I’ve got a family, etc.), but none of them are good enough to justify the absence.
Now, on to the promise: I promise that I am officially back in the saddle here on Outlaw Student. You and I need each other more than ever right now. You need me because scholarships are just as difficult and competitive as they’ve ever been, and I can help you rise to the top of the applicant pools and win some money. And I need you, because I want Outlaw Student to be the biggest and best site of its kind on the Web. I think it’s still safe to say that there aren’t a lot of sites giving students and their parents a great deal of straight talk about how to win scholarships. But Outlaw Student will never be the biggest and best without students and parents coming here often and getting the info they need.
Promise 2 (bonus!): I’m going to start posting videos as well. Warning: I am not a handsome man. But I try hard (which, incidentally, guys, many times does make up for a lack of handsomeness), and I hope you’ll find the videos I post informative, if not titillating.
And HEY — I’d like your help meeting your needs here, so in the comments section or via email or however you like, let me know what you’d like to have me write about or talk about on video. You ask & I’ll provide.
I’ll have a Facebook fan page built before long, and I’ll probably twist your arm a bit to get you to be my “fan” — hope you don’t mind. Knowing I have some fans is a great motivator for me, personally. When you write on the Internet, it can be a lonely place; you never quite know who’s watching or caring about what you do. So please, feed my ego and become a fan of me on Facebook! When I give you the link, I mean.
Thanks! We shall talk soon, I guarantee it.
All the best,
“Judge Josh” Barsch
