The Best in Internet Land – 6.23.19

Happy Sunday!!

What happened this week? We finally got a lot of rain (and I think the fact that I’m happy about it means that I have become a real adult) and the temperatures are still cruising along in the 100’s. I am celebrating Father’s Day today with my family since the restaurant industry doesn’t sleep and my dad slaved away on the actual Father’s Day holiday. Otherwise, it was pretty low key.. I’m still going strong with WW and hoping to be down at least another 2 lbs this week.

This week on the internet:

“Sitting in front of a computer all day is killing you, and killing your work”” — The argument for using an analog desk for creative work

An idea about what to do with extra money. You know those times when you unexpectedly get a refund on something or receive that class action settlement check you filed for 3 years ago? I, for one, feel like this type of money is earmarked for fun ventures and things I would normally not allow myself to buy. This concept finds a happy medium between that ‘gift’ mentality (and feeling like I need to gift myself something) and doing something useful with it.

I appreciated this essay: Choosing to not have children is okay

This is a little farfetched but interesting nonetheless: a browser extension for Goodwill.
It will let you know if something you’re searching for is available through Goodwill. I don’t know how often that would be, but thrift stores generally run cheaper and I do enjoy frequenting many a thrift shop. If you didn’t know, Goodwill has their own site and runs auctions.

I’m following this creating a blog that makes money in under a year experiment

WINE WATER. It’s what it sounds like, water that takes like wine but is not alcoholic. The price is fairly off-putting but I’m still intrigued by the idea.

Did you see anything great this week? If so, let me know! I hope you had a lovely week!

  1. Howdy fantastic website! Does running a blog
    such as this take a large amount of work? I’ve
    virtually no expertise in computer programming
    but I had been hoping to start my own blog in the near
    future. Anyways, should you have any recommendations or tips for new blog owners please share.
    I know this is off subject but I just wanted to ask.

  2. Howdy would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but
    I’m having a hard time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking
    for something unique. P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had
    to ask!

    1. Hi Maglie,
      I am using WordPress and a free theme. I did purchase the domain though rather than opt for a free plan and a .wordpress site. There are plenty of options 🙂

      Thanks for reading!

  3. I will right away seize your rss feed as I can’t to find your email subscription hyperlink or e-newsletter service. Do you’ve any? Kindly allow me recognize in order that I may subscribe. Thanks.

  4. Long time supporter, and thought I’d drop a comment.

    Your wordpress site is very sleek – hope you don’t mind me asking what theme you’re using?
    (and don’t mind if I steal it? :P)

    I just launched my site –also built in wordpress like
    yours– but the theme slows (!) the site down quite a bit.

    In case you have a minute, you can find it by searching for “royal cbd” on Google (would appreciate any feedback) – it’s still in the works.

    Keep up the good work– and hope you all take care of yourself during the coronavirus scare!

    1. Hi Justin, thanks for your support. I am using a free theme through WordPress called WP Blog. It should be available to you since it’s one of the free ones. We are hanging in, hope you are too!

  5. “Good post. I learn something new and challenging on sites I
    stumbleupon everyday. It will always be helpful to read content from other authors and use a
    little something from their web sites”
