A short introduction to my blog and how to find content.

Hello & Welcome to my blog. :) You have stumbled onto an ever-growing collection of writing through which I share my perspective on life and how best to navigate it. My posts cover a vast array of topics, but at their core they all have one thing in common: they are all about revealing a better way to look at things which I argue will lead to a happier and healthier life for everyone, not just oneself — well, that's the hope anyways. I am always trying to learn and grow more as a person, so I treat this blog as my evolving repository of knowledge which I will continually update as new understandings come to light.

I am honored to have you here, and I hope you enjoy my writing. As always, don't hesitate to to reach out to me if there's anything on your mind. :)

Ever Warmly,
Nathan Buckley

This blog vs. my other social media

These days there are so many social media platforms and in order to have reach to a wide audience one generally needs to use more than one. As a result many people use several different platforms and because they have different posting requirements it can end up a giant chaotic mess to manage and for everyone else to figure out where content is.

To keep things simple, this blog is where essentially all my content is posted (aside perhaps from a trivial tweet here and there), including virtually all content I post related to Infinite Love. Doing so gives me the most control over my content and the freedom to post using whatever length and formatting options I desire. Thus, if you are interested in staying abreast of essentially everything of value that I post, you should subscribe to this blog (its 100% free; any paid options I have available on the signup page are just if you want to support me — there are no differences in terms of content).

With regard to my social media channels: each of them gets whatever content is appropriate for that platform, essentially divided between long-form and short-form content. Short-form content generally consists of brief observations I make which then take the form of images and short videos which I post to all my channels. Long-form content is more like an article or educational video about a specific topic, which I only post to YouTube and my podcast.

"Nathan Buckley" vs. "Infinite Love" content

Infinite Love is the name of my YouTube channel and podcast and all content is posted by me, so it invariably represents my views. In time however, if people join me there may very well be content posted by others as well, at which point it's possible Infinite Love's views may diverge from my own (though probably not significantly). Generally, if the social account is referred to as "Infinite Love" it represents the Infinite Love brand with the hope that these channels will grow and evolve to become something far greater than I could ever produce alone.

As of now, these 'brand' channels are the YouTube channel, the podcast, the Discord, the Infinite Love Instagram (@infinite.love.official), the Infinite Love subreddit (r/infinitelove), and the Infinite Love Facebook page. For now, however, I'm the only one who posts content to these channels.

All the other accounts which I post content to are my personal accounts.

Personal Social Media

  • Twitter (@nathanjbuckley)
    Here I post short-form content mostly in the form of images and sometimes normal tweets if I can fit it in 280 characters.
  • Instagram (@nathanjbuckley)
    Unlike my other personal accounts, this account has no Infinite Love content so people can subscribe to both my personal IG and the official Infinite Love IG without getting duplicate content.
  • TikTok (@nathanjbuckley)
    Here I post short-form videos mostly regarding important social issues and such, but in general content is more impromptu and so sometimes it may relate simply to what I'm dealing with in my personal life.
  • Facebook (/stoic)
    Effectively unused for most of my life, now I'm using it to post short-form content mostly in the form of images and sometimes videos.
  • LinkedIn (in/finitelove)
    My preferred username/URL was taken so I went with what I plan to work on the rest of my life (Infinite Love). I post mostly image content here but also sometimes with supplemental text since it has a more generous character limit.

Searching existing content

Most people will find this website long after many posts have already been written. As the curator and author of virtually all the content here, I certainly do believe everything is worth reading (perhaps beyond a product review here and there that may not be relevant to you), and therefore I would recommend reading them all when you have the time (preferrably in the order I wrote them because earlier posts may provide useful background for later posts). The easiest way to do this is by using the index page which lists all posts in chronological order.

However, if you are only interested in certain topics, the best way to navigate through existing content is to use the search bar at the top of every page which allows you to search for keywords in articles as well as tags, which are primarily used to help categorize articles by topic. A single article can have many tags (topics), but at minimum it will have a "topic category" tag which covers a range of related topics that I have grouped together for more easily finding related content. For example, the "Health & Well-being" topic category covers physical health (exercise, nutrition, medicine, nootropics), mental health (psychology, neuroscience), along with relationships and personal growth. The eight topic categories I have defined are listed below and should serve as a good starting point if you are looking for specific topics via tags:
