There’s so much noise

Emails. Feedly. LinkedIn. Twitter. Pinterest. Google+. It’s so loud out there, it’s becoming easier to just mark everything as read, gloss over all that you see, rather than engage and be a productive member of the communities you’re a part of.

Of late, there’s been a pattern emerging with me. Open up Chrome, go to my Feedly, quickly check the categories I have my various places saved as. Gloss over most of them, entirely. Why?

No-Poo for me!

I’ve gone no-poo!

New blogs!

In an effort to keep very much my own personal blog, say hello to two new blogs from me: Photos and Just Another Email Blog

I’ve been wanting to create Just Another Email Blog for a while now. I know it’s going to take a lot of work though. Work I feel like I should be able to put into it.

Project 365: 2014 – October

Project 365: October

Oh hey, November – you’re here already? I wasn’t expecting you so soon. See, I thought October might have been a bit longer. Well, as long as you’re here, stick around, won’t you.

The weather has finally started cooling down! The couple of weeks in October were lovely. Sure, it’s still in the low 30s during the day. But the evenings have been lovely. Nothing better than sitting on the balcony with a couple of beers, chatting the night away. Continue Reading
