Lazy Sunday Morning Links Vol.10

The Sunday Morning Links return after a few weeks away. I’ll be honest, my motivation was just not what it needed to be to get the posts completed. Also, I very little content to share from being head down in work. Now, things have slowed down and I was able to go down a few rabbit holes. Below is what I found.

Eyes and Ears

Video: Hard Times by Paramore | I have been listening to this new Paramore track way too much since it dropped on Thursday. Paramore has been a constant in my life since 2005. Songs from All We Know is Falling still have a spot on my running mixes. The new song is hit of 80s nostalgia mixed with mid-aughts pop-punk. My wheelhouse.

Lazy Sunday Morning Links Vol.9

Happy April! I hope yesterday, with all of its jokes and pranks, didn’t leave you too tired to read stuff on the internet.  We return to the standard Sunday morning links format today. No jokes, only my favorite things of the past seven days.

Watch: Minimalism | The documentary from The Minimalist that hit me like a dump truck last year and kicked things into overdrive for me is now available worldwide on Netflix. Find an hour, watch it, and let me know what you think.

Lazy Sunday Morning Links Vol.8 – Blog Edition

The Sunday Morning links are a wee bit late thanks to a nasty head cold. Rest and Warcraft have been most of the last three days for me. Apologies for the lack of posts this week. Hopefully, I am cleared up and have renewed focus in the next few days.

This week’s post is a tad different as it is all resources for start and maintaining a blog. Enjoy!

Starting Links

Blog: 15 Reasons I Think You Should Blog by Becoming Minimalist | Joshua Becker is one of my mainstay bloggers. If this post doesn’t connect, there is no real reason to continue with the rest of the links.

Lazy Sunday Morning Links Vol.5

 

Happy Sunday, everyone. Hope your week went as well as it could have. I am already beginning to lose track of the days after one month of this little project. Last week was easy. This week is hard. Prepping for baby is eating into my personal time. Why I know I should not be surprised, I still am. But, enough about my struggles. You’re here for links.

Let’s dive in, shall we?

Song:   Gravity by Jasmine Kara | Guilty pleasure time. This track has been on repeat for me since I discovered it a couple weeks ago. I love Swedish dance pop and this hits all the right marks. All the signs of a breakout summer song right here.

Walking Away

Yesterday, I left Twitter.  As of right now, it is a temporary deprivation for Lent. But, one day after walking away, I already feel lighter. I know I have gained back time. I see relationships that will be stronger.

The next forty days will be free of retweets, mindless banter, memes and most of all – noise. (Note: I will be still sharing posts on Twitter via Buffer)

 

A post shared by Jesse T (@broximar) on

But Lent? Really?! Okay, you got me. Yes, I am not a church-goer or even very religious, but I have always loved Lent and depriving yourself of something for a time. In retrospect, Lent was my first introduction to minimalism. But I fail at one major part of Lent, which is boasting about my sacrifice.

So, in the spiriting of boasting, here is all I am planning to give up in the next forty days.

Lazy Sunday Morning Links Vol. 4

The last Sunday of February. How is it almost March already? The fourth volume of Lazy Sunday Morning Links and it is becoming easier to compile each time. Gotta love it!

I hope you find value in one of the items posted. As always, thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

Song:  Strangers by Tritonal | While everyone is losing their mind over Zedd’s new track, I have been listening to the new Tritonal and chillin’. Piercing the Quiet was one of my favorite releases of 2011 and remains my favorite driving album, so any new Tritonal is great in my books. Now, if we could just get some new Above & Beyond…

Returning to focus

This week I lost the narrative. One simple action derailed two days and I allowed it.  No one else. It took 48 hours for my focus to return.

Ian Malcolm Returning to Focus

It started as a simple reply to a tweet from the Warcraft twitter account. I thought, like with many of my previous tweets to Blizzard accounts it would have a few interactions. Maybe one or two retweets. Probably a dozen or so likes.  I was wrong. Horribly, horribly wrong.

Lazy Sunday Morning Links Vol. 3

Another week complete. The last seven days were a whirlwind one for Kyla and me, ending on a bit of a trying note. But, we will get through. We always do. This weekly feature was started to help me remember the positive points of the week. I hope you find something enjoyable as well.

Song:  Love by Lana Del Rey | I have no shame in sharing my love for Lana Del Rey. I own a shirt which is just her face (cover of Born to Die). On the 18th, she released a new single, Love. Excited to hear more new songs and all the remixes to follow.

Digital Survival Kit: 2017 Edition

Welcome to my digital survival kit for 2017. I’m pleasantly surprised to see many of the apps on my 2016 edition are carried over to the new year.digital survival 2017 (Last year is on my old  Tumblr. Yeah, I know. Let’s not? Okay? Ok.) A few apps and services I phased out either changed their purpose due to API alterations – Iconosquare – or were not the right fit and became chores – Habitica and Forest. What the following list covers are the day-to-day apps I use to run our house and daily life, not our business. For the full list of services we use to run the business, please head over to Kyla’s tools page.
An important part of my digital survival which is not an app or service is the layout of my home screen. I use this layout to keep the high use on the first page. Occasional use on the second page and rarely used on the third. One every page I only use the first two rows for apps or folders. The search function is used to find and open most apps. Quicker from the home screen than sliding through pages and folders.
