πŸ’° Keep looking at these managed WP platforms to host my personal line up of sites. Would be nice have someone else worry about php upgrades, and php-fpm start_servers values, blah blah, but paying 5x the cost for a service. That’s a hard pill to swallow.

Pressable has really caught my eye though.

🀡🏻 About 5 or 6 years ago, I tried Alfred, and couldn’t see the benefit whatsoever. I was reminded of it’s existence a few days ago, tried it out, bought the power pack.

Best is just firing things that you use enough, but not enough, like resizes images for web, getting timestamp into clipboard, opening an Atom project specifically.

I’m in disbelief. What an incredible tool. I’m 48 hours in and I’ve already made about a dozen custom workflows for those tiny repetitive 20second tasks. Sure only save a few minutes a week, might add up over time – but the mental payload it frees up is what counts – think more about the work, less about the tools.

πŸ§™πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ More and more I’m noticing the better software each have their own “magic toolbar”, global or just within app. Or at least one super helpful toolbar. Just wish the shortcuts were similar

OSX: cmd+space
Atom: cntrl+cmd+p
Slack: cmd+k

πŸ—£ Very excited to be hosting my very first talk/presentation next month. It’s an amazing feeling after countless years of coding and becoming expert at a subject, to have the opportunity to talk about it and to teach others.

πŸŽ† As much as I loved DIVI for what it allowed end-users to build, I’m thrilled that Gutenberg is getting closer to release, with a public call out on next WP release. I can’t wait to ditch DIVI and go pure Gutenberg.

No more hidden row settings, complex “Design” panel, silly Fisher-price interface, and locked out customizing.

So excited to start building a library of blocks for my websites.

Spending 45 minutes over two days manually troubleshooting which Atom package is causing the freeze+crash. There has to be a better way.

It was pigments by the way. Not recommended.
