Taking Breaks: 1 Week In

Well, 1 week into my break from Social Media and I thought I’d give an update/perspective on how it’s gone so far. It’s been tough. I’ve found myself open a new tab in my browser and start typing the letters face… and then quickly close the tab. I’ve found the same thing on my phone, […]

Social Media, Distractions, and Taking Breaks

I’ve been using social media pretty much every day of my life for the past 8 years, and I’ve been growing slowly dissatisfied with how much it has encroached into my life I’ve let it encroach into my life.

So recently I’ve taken up running. Not as a form of escapism as some people do, but more as a by product of becoming healthier and staying in shape. I’ve been on and off at the gym over the last year, and I’ve found that I’ve enjoyed my time on the treadmill more than any other […]

Appreciation of Sight

For most of us that work online, there are a few things that we do everyday that we take for granted. Things like having a roof over our heads, food on the table, and access to the internet. But the last week has highlighted something else in my life – my sight. See, last week […]

Why Themeforest authors why….

So….all this commotion regarding the Slider Revolution plugin being bundled in themes has caused quite a few headaches for people. Myself included… I spent a fair chunk of an evening this week “updating” a friends (staging) site using this theme -> http://themeforest.net/item/chariot-professional-responsive-portfolio-theme/5817175 to make 100% sure it was secure. Here’s what I had to do… Backup […]
