Why I started this blog

Welcome.  In case you are wondering why I started this blog I'll let you know.

Ultimately I want a space to do a few things:

  • Publish articles based on work I am currently doing in the space of marketing analytics
  • Post informational details on applied machine learning and marketing analytics for my own edification since I tend to hold on to things better by writing about them
  • Grow my online presence by contributing content and reaching people who are in industry to grow my professional network
  • Try to finally own some search results for my name. Jeremy Nelson. This will be difficult!

Not my first blog

I've had blogs before.  Ranging from a wide variety of topics like travel, SEO, health. One topical travel post even blew up on WordPress because I was at the right place at the right time, but I quickly learned that it doesn't mean anything if you don't provide people a reason to come back.

Basically whatever interest I held for a few months I decided to write about it.

What's different?

Well all my other blogs were on WordPress.  This one is hosted on Google Compute Engine and powered by Ghost!  

Yeah I don't think that that really matters to anybody but seeing as this is more directed at my professional life and something I do every day, I think it should hopefully have more staying power.

Anyway, I hope you find some useful information here.  If you like marketing analytics or the applications of statistical learning to solving problems I encounter in eCommerce, marketing and logistics, stick around or subscribe to me.
