New! Carve Designs Monroe Sweater
A number of weeks in the past I requested Instagram for some weblog subject prompts as an “ask me something” field. I really like these query containers as a result of they convey up matters that I may not in any other case assume to write down about. I really like a grab-bag type submit with a wide range of matters, so right here goes:
How’s it going with Mazen’s cellular phone?
Good query! It’s going precisely the way you’d count on. I knew there could be execs and cons, and the professionals completely outweigh the cons in my view. The “Discover My” app is so nice to have the ability to monitor M’s location when he’s strolling to a mates home or to the playground after faculty. I really like with the ability to textual content him from my very own iMessages or Facetime him when he’s away from our home. (I feel he would agree).
You’ll be able to think about that we’ve had some challenges with educating correct telephone etiquette like placing your telephone down whenever you’re greeting individuals and never utilizing it whenever you’re enjoying with mates. We’ve additionally had bother with a loophole that I acquired suckered into with the Pokemon Go app. (I didn’t notice it was a sport after I permitted!) So we’ve needed to restrict that by means of the parental controls.
That stated, the Apple parental controls are improbable, so I’m in a position to change apps/video games on and off as wanted, set cut-off dates, and set downtime controls so there isn’t late night time telephone utilization.
I’ve had a number of individuals ask for our cellular phone contract, and you’ll obtain that right here!
If running a blog hadn’t taken off the best way it did for you, what do you think about you’d be doing for work?
This can be a actually enjoyable query that I thought of for a very long time and nonetheless don’t have an awesome reply for! Once I set out to return to high school for diet, my intention was to open a personal follow and coach one on one purchasers. My imaginative and prescient was to see purchasers in individual, however I’m 99% positive that if I had gone that route, I in all probability would have expanded into on-line alternatives as effectively. As a result of know-how growth! That feels a bit too near running a blog and like a simple reply.
I feel if I needed to choose one thing that wasn’t about meals and diet, I’d say one thing in advertising. I labored in public relations, an in depth cousin to advertising, and picture I’d have hopped to an analogous function in advertising or promoting within the years that adopted, maybe even digital advertising inside the search engine marketing/Fb adverts area. I feel doing in-house advertising or content material creation for a corporation like YNAB could be actually cool. I additionally surprise if I’d have nonetheless been drawn to the wellness/health industries and ended up working at a gymnasium like ACAC.
I’ve additionally typically requested myself if I used to be going to let KERF fade away and simply let it grow to be a passion and search for a cash maker elsewhere, what would I do? I feel my 16-year expertise on-line, in wordpress and social media, would undoubtedly lend to a job doing these sorts of actions for a corporation or model.
I used to be truly supplied a job at an enormous wellness firm a number of years in the past that I’d have been in a position to do along with running a blog. It got here with a pleasant wage and advantages (medical insurance! A 401k!) and was do business from home and considerably versatile, however in the end the rationale I didn’t take it on was as a result of one of many advantages was “2 weeks trip.” The considered being instructed I couldn’t take greater than 10 days off was sufficient for me to say no thanks. Flexibility is my #1 job requirement. I don’t assume I might ever tackle a job that wasn’t time versatile and distant work, until it was very half time like a once-a-week in individual sort of factor.

On A Quiet Avenue was SO SO good!! I do know after I’m studying e-book as a result of I have a tendency to remain up later when it’s that good I can’t put it down. I stayed up previous my bedtime the entire time I blew by means of this one. It was creepy, mysterious, and a page-turning thriller at instances. I additionally just lately completed 5 Star Weekend by Elin Hilderbrand, which I cherished as a simple enjoyable learn. And on the time of penning this I’ve simply began Nora Goes Off Script and I do know I’m going to like it already!

When will you be on Survivor?
Ah man, I want they might have no less than given me a telephone name from casting after I utilized! I’m guessing I’m just a bit too boring. My first video from 2016 was me within the wild, nevertheless it was a really unprofessional edit. My second video from final yr was me speaking to the digicam with numerous photographs/video overlay. I assumed the edit was nice, however possibly me speaking was too boring. Unsure how I can get their consideration!
