Phew, the New Year has already been a busy one, both at work and outside! I thought it would be fun to share a few things that I’ve been up to, both via blogging and in my free time.
What I’ve been up to:
Working on fun projects :: I recently worked with a brand to talk about how important neighbors are! We recently moved to a new neighborhood in San Francisco and one of the many perks is that I now get to call my friend Katie a neighbor! Luckily she’s always up for helping me out with projects, we had a little photoshoot last weekend. Pat was at work, so we did it all by tripod! This meant a million outtakes! I couldn’t resist creating a blooper GIF, which is posted for your enjoyment above. It was so much fun!
Cleaning up my Twitter act :: I was so inspired by a post by Colorado Moms about “reclaiming” your Twitter feed that I followed some of her steps! I used JustUnfollow.com to unfollow all the people who don’t follow me back, as well as those who haven’t tweeted in the last 6 months! This took me from following 10,200 people to about 5,200 now! I also try to manually unfollow all of the people who are posting lewd messages or spammy links when I see them. Honestly, this hasn’t affected my number of followers at all and it felt so good. My next step is to start creating Twitter lists with TweetDeck so I can keep in touch with the people and businesses that I most care about! Even following 5,000 people is overwhelming so I think this will really help.
Adventuring with Pat :: We recently spent a day at Point Reyes National Seashore, which is about an hour north of San Francisco. Even though it was a weekend, it was still incredibly peaceful and not too busy.
