Pocketing Faves

Standard

ifttt-logo-e1345205456931I finally started working my way through the backlogs of links I had saved to read within Pocket. I found myself repeatedly hopping over to Delicious to bookmark my favorites. Then, I remembered IFTTT supported both sites.

So I created the Pocketing Faves recipe. Every time you mark a link as a Favorite within Pocket, it’ll automatically get saved as a Public Bookmark on Delicious.

Hello again, Tersus.

I’ve started working on the Super Ginormous child theme for Tersus once more. As part of my social media fast, I’m taking 30 minutes a day to work on a personal project. I’ve converted the theme’s stylesheet to be Sass-based. Next up will be to refine the general look of it…

Hiatus

Standard

Create More. Consume Less.

I’m taking a break from Twitter, Facebook, App.net, Foursquare, Instagram, Google+, etc. for a while. The shear number of social networks I belong to is, in and of itself, a problem.

I love the discussions I have on them. I love what I learn from them. I love seeing what my friends are up to, how their kids are doing. But the reality is… it’s getting to be too much; too distracting.

So I join Jesse and Anton in beginning a social media hiatus as of today. I don’t know how long it will last. But I fully intend to spend more time creating instead of consuming. The only way to combat FOMO (Fear of Missing Out) is to Force Ourselves to Miss Out (and hopefully come to the realization that we haven’t missed much at all).
