Weekly Round-Up March 15 2022

Here's how the second year of the COVID19 pandemic messed us up more than the first year.

Interesting look at how businesses can position their services/products based on a holistic understanding of how their service/product can benefit their customers.

The awareness stage: the customer becomes aware that they have a problem
The consideration stage: the customer actively seeks out solutions to the problem
The decision stage: the customer eliminates and narrows down potential solutions

Is vodka made from sheep's milk a baaaaaaad idea?

Weekly Roundup - December 20th 2020

Hello there Interwebs! I'm sure you agree that there's no need to explain the lack of blog posts for the past FIVE AND A HALF YEARS. Long story, I'll explain another time. Let's move on shall we?

Interesting things found on the Internet

1. This BBC archive of sounds and sound effects, available for your use for "personal, educational or research purposes". Talk about falling down an auditory rabbit hole!

2. An informative read about the difference between Brand Awareness and Brand Equity, and how to build and develop both. Must-read for freelancers and entrepreneurs alike.

3. Have you ever heard of Lampshading? Shawn Wang breaks it down for us. 

Applied to real life: You call out your own weakness, so that others can't. In fact, by most functional team dynamics, others are then obliged to help you fix your weakness. This is soft power.


4. As the COVID19 pandemic rampages around the world (as well as here in Grenada with 44 active cases currently), working from home (WFH) has become the routine for millions of people. OWL Labs examines the State of Remote Work and discovers, among other fascinating data, that:

Despite difficult circumstances for working remotely, 77% of respondents agree that after COVID-19, having the option to work from home would make them happier.

5. Speaking of COVID19 (and when do we not?), here's some great advice and suggestions on managing burnout in the New Normal.

OK, I'm going to go ahead and publish this post as it has been over a week since I started it. (Procrastination again!) Will be back soon with more interesting links and info.

Moodboard: Week of March 30th 2015

Hey there Interwebs! It's been a while since I've updating The Blog; I think we can all agree I might just be a pretty terrible blogger :-(

I'd like to introduce a feature called Moodboard Of the Week. By definition a moodboard is "an arrangement of images, materials, pieces of text, etc., intended to evoke or project a particular style or concept", basically a fancy word for a collage, just like you may have made in Form 1 art class. 

As a creative person I'm constantly checking out graphic design, fine art, photography and web design blogs and websites; sometimes you can discover ideas for a new project, or you can marvel at the skill of a certain designer, or even find a jolt of inspiration that helps you get out of a design rut. I'm putting together a weekly moodboard showcasing a few images that really jumped out at me, pulled me in, intrigued and fascinated me or just made me smile. I hope you enjoy them.
