So I got an idea of how to show all my Covet Fashion stuff off without spamming all those who don’t want to see everything. Using Twitter (which my phone posts to) and IFTTT I’ve set up easy posting to
This is my communication method lots of time. I keep up with more friends here than I do Facebook.
If I ever go missing the cops can easily find where the last place I was.
I hate repetitive tasks, but I LOVE to keep archives. This does that and automates a few things for me.
I had been using this app quite a bit. I was addicted to my Carmel Apple Spice even though it doesn’t agree with my stomach. Apples have given me problems for years.
8. Mobile Banking app
This is how I usally check my bank account. I actually interact with my bank more this way than any other way.
I’m using this more than any other social site for promoting my iBooks.
I like this app for seeing what was going on in my life on this day for previous years.
I travel a lot and don’t know where I’m going. So I find out what’s nearby by using the search embeded in Waze. Plus they know traffic because of the real time traffic updates from other users in the area.
I love to read. However, moving with a large library every 3 to 6 months is prohibitive. So I have a Kindle, a Kindle app on my phone and a Kindle app on my iPad. I have my whole library down to about 3 lbs. A lot easier to pack up and move.
Worked last night. Got started on the outline & rough draft of the Pet Battles book. I have a feeling I’m going to be working on a lot more paper here at this hospital. For the Hearthstone Book I’ve just got the formatting for the Shaman, Warlock & Warrior to go.
Also good news! The World of Warcraft book is now live!
One of the major feelings of depressions is isolation. This makes things worse for me. I am isolated. I am 1150 miles from home. I am 1160 miles from my best friends. It would take me 20 hours of driving time to get there. That’s 0 stops and praying traffic is decent in the cities. It was like 24 hours on the trip here. I make use of various things, texts, Skype, Ventrillo with my guild, Facebook, twitter to keep in some form of communication. I have the cats but they are just not the same as human contact. I don’t make close friends easily. There are many people I am friendly with, but none that are close as my 3 best friends. We can be apart for years, but the minute we’re back together we’re just the same as we were. I miss that. We were together for a while, but now life is spreading us out again. But the fact that I work as a travel and I’m so temporary in an area complicates the isolation of the depression. Plus I’m night shift. I’m asleep while everyone else is awake. I’m awake when everyone else is asleep. The isolation is pretty well a fact of life. Some days I feel more connected to characters in fictional stories than I do real people. I see more of their lives. I think this is part of the reason I prefer TV shows over movies. I get to spend longer with the characters. I get into their lives. I spend a lot of time with audiobooks as well. Comments help, it’s like starting a conversation. I know someone is listening and wants to communicate.
Every once in a while spammers seem to take over abandoned Facebook apps that people forgot they authorized to share that cute photo. Here’s how to get rid of any annoying Facebook apps or just clean up those you don’t use anymore.
Log in and find the gear icon and click on it.
Select the “Account Settings” from the gear drop down.
On the left column is a menu.Find the “Apps” and click on it. This will give you a list of applications that you have authorized at some point or another.
Click the X by the applications you no longer want.
To help you outsmart traffic, today we’re excited to announce we’ve closed the acquisition of Waze. This fast-growing community of traffic-obsessed drivers is working together to find the best routes from home to work, every day.
I’ve been using Waze quite a while now… I’ve been a bit of an editor on the rare occasion as well. I added the bypass in my hometown shortly after it was constructed. I’ve been with them through growing pains. Now I just hope Google lets them continue to grow & doesn’t end them like they have Google Reader (yes, I’m still kinda bitter about that shuttering next month).
I like my tweets archived to Evernote. Really I do. It’s like a personal journal that I don’t have to remember to update because it auto clips everything from the day. I don’t have to work so hard to create my journal or duplicate anything. Also I have Facebook, Foursqure, Flickr, Goodreads and many more locations feeding my journal as well. So when I learned that IFTTT was not allowing you to use Twitter triggers anymore I was sad… Then I started to search for a work around. You see, I remember Twitter used to have an RSS feed!!! And, well, I have my WordPress RSS feed pull through IFTTT into my Evernote journal so surely I can do the same with Twitter.
Twitter has gotten cagy. It’s more difficult now to find your RSS feed. After some poking around and looking at blogs I found my answer. My twitter handle is @tanyabook so the RSS feed for it is
You can swap out “tanyabook” for your own username.
I just created a new Recipe with IFTTT with a Feed as the “IF THIS” trigger. Inserted my Twitter RSS url. Picked Evernote as my “THEN THAT” action. I have it as appending the same note as that’s the format I prefer. IFTTT also gives you the choice to have each instance create its own. I found that this created many more individual notes without much information, but whichever of the two it creates the archive. Which was the main goal of this exercise.
IMO Twitter’s tightening may not do good things for the service in the long run. Honestly I don’t care what Justin Bieber or any of the twitter celebs are tweeting. What is this “promoted” crapola? I use twitter as a personal journal/open chat with friends. I don’t care about the hottest trending topic. In fact, I still get text messages from twitter for my closest friends. So get off my twitter lawn!!!!
