Like I say, I think of myself as a writer.
If you need something fancier and with a more sophisticated whiff of “personal branding,” you can say that I’m an “independent writer, speaker, and broadcaster.” That’s what I tell people, anyhow. But if you’re looking for something more canonical (since it does seem to come up a lot), here’s some options:

He’s best known as the creator of and primary contributor for 43folders.com, his website about finding the time and attention to do your best creative work. Merlin does most of what he does on a Mac in the western third of San Francisco.”
