Here are some of the most common questions I receive about U Stand Out.
Are you the same Diana Urban who works at HubSpot?
Yep, that’s me! I started working at HubSpot in September 2010, but I created this blog in 2008 and wrote the first edition of the ebook Stand Out on Facebook in January 2010. So U Stand Out and HubSpot are not affiliated (except that I’m the link between the two). 🙂
Are you the same Diana Urban who wrote STEALING PARIS?
Yep, that’s also me. Things have been… busy.
Do you accept guest blog posts?
Sorry, but I’m not accepting guest blog posts at this time. I did for a while back in 2013, but the overall quality of submissions was so poor that it wasn’t worth the time to run a guest blogging program or go back-and-forth with edits.
Are you available for hire?
No. My day job at HubSpot, my novel writing, and blogging keep me plenty busy. Extra money’s nice and all, but life is short and I’d rather spend any free time I have with my family and friends.
Can you help me figure out an issue I’m having with my Facebook page/Twitter account/blog/etc.
Unfortunately, I do not have time to offer free consulting services.
Can you like my Facebook page?
I’m sorry, but no. My personal Facebook profile is strictly for personal use. Thanks to Facebook’s algorithm, it’s hard to keep up with even my closest friends’ updates, so I don’t want to make this worse.
What do you use to run this blog?
This blog is self-hosted with WordPress using the Genesis theme. A bunch of the design is coded with custom CSS, so it’s not something you could purchase out-of-the-box, but Genesis + Jetpack makes it pretty easy!
Why didn’t you reply to the question I left in a blog comment?
I unfortunately don’t have the time to keep up with blog comments on old posts, but I don’t close comments on these posts because oftentimes your question will be answered by a fellow reader.
Can I get a discount on your ebooks?
I often provide special discount codes as part of special campaigns that I run, so keep your eyes peeled! 😉
