COVID-19 Diary – week 2

More random thoughts I’ve been thinking during my second full week of self-isolation, quarantine, social distancing, or whatever. Flatten that curve, baby. Stay home, stay healthy, don’t spread the disease! I’m constantly reminded how much my own personal life hasn’t really changed while the entire world seems to be changing Read more…

COVID-19 Diary – week 1

Just some random thoughts I’ve been thinking during my first full week of self-isolation … quarantine … social distancing … or whatever. I’m just trying to flatten the curve, stay healthy, and keep others healthy too. I’m very grateful for our first responders, teachers, police, and firefighters for the service Read more…

2020 Annual Axiom

I’ve never been a big resolutions person. I’d set them (sometimes), but wouldn’t really fully commit to them. Then I read about “My Three Words” from Mike Vardy at the Productivityist. This is a concept in which you define three guiding words for your year. These words help you decide Read more…

Project 365

In case you’re new around here, I do this little thing called a “Project 365“. You can find all my photos from this year (2019) on write.as with the #project365 tag.

Note: I recently moved to using write.as for blogging because it’s such a simple interface and uses Markdown. I’ll likely keep it … but we’ll see.

Every year I have friends ask if I’m still going to do one next year. Turns out 2019 was the fourth year I’ve done a Project 365. Daaaang. So at this point, it’s such a habit for me, I’m not sure I can stop. So, I thought I’d share my past projects and my “process” in case anybody else wants to join me. (more…)

Choose to Create

Earlier this year I read “Digital Minimalism” by Cal Newport. I already had suspicions, but that book really opened my eyes to how much time I wasted er, spent browsing content on the interwebs. Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, newsfeeds, etc. The endless scrolling … As directed in the book, I did Read more…

Inktober 2019

Oh yeah, I have a blog! I’ve been wanting to (re)develop my artistic side. I used to enjoy doodling and just creating stuff. Over time, as life and work have gotten in the way, I stopped creating anything. Blerg. Humans need to create dammit! It hit me about a week Read more…

New Microblog (sort of)

Like most people on the internet, I consume a LOT of links, stories, memes, videos, etc. Sometimes I want to share something I read or watch. But, I’m also trying to limit my social media time and not everything fits on my main blog page (which I’m trying to post to Read more…

My Three Words for 2019

Last year I tried to theme my year with three words rather than commit myself to resolutions that I knew I wouldn’t keep anyway. I first heard of the concept from Mike Vardy, who in turn took the concept from Chris Brogan. My words last year were Mindful, Endure, and Hygge. As I reflected Read more…

Notion.so Dashboard

I started using Notion.so a few months ago, then decided to pay for a year subscription when they dropped the price to $4/mo. Since that time, I’ve really taken to adding notes, structuring things, working on projects, etc. It’s a work in progress (like everything in life), but Notion is Read more…

Still not unremarkable

Hopefully this works … I had a domain as the “parent” on my hosting package with NameCheap and wanted to let that domain expire while moving *this* domain as the parent. Unfortunately, that required moving some files and changing a few things on the back-end. Fortunately, NameCheap support was super Read more…
