2020 has been a lot to handle. Through all the trials and tribulations, I’ve managed to go about every month with a goal in mind. I’ve done a mediocre job of sticking to those goals, but it hasn’t stopped me from learning a few things every month.
December, so far, has been a pretty productive month for goal attainment, self-improvement, and happiness. Here are some things that I’ve learned as we make our way into Mid December 2020.
A lot of articles I’ve read seem to be less focused on the work, and more focused on the topic…
I know we’re all focused on writing about what we’ve learned on our Medium journeys, but let’s talk for a moment about what we haven’t learned. For the sake of being, well, just being.
Here’s an extensive list of the things I have not managed to learn while writing on Medium.
Have you noticed how many articles exist about making bundles of money while writing on this platform? It almost seemed like the idea behind Medium was to make money, hand over fist, and never work another day job again.
Never-mind the fact that it is close to working a…
We are making it through the year one struggle at a time. We have not been able to be around our friends; we have not been able to be around our family. Life as we know it has not been the same. Every holiday this year has been different in 2020. Life in 2020 has been strange.
Usually, during Thanksgiving, I get ready to either be around family or family friends. Over the years of my life, I’ve celebrated Thanksgiving in Chicago, Ann Arbor, and other cities around the region. It has been a great time to spend…
I have been enjoying my time writing about various topics on Medium. Since I began writing on the platform in late July, I have earned a total of 24.59 from 30 articles, and I have learned a few things along the way. I know that what I have learned so far is only the start of what I will learn because I have just started my journey.
Here are a few things that I have learned after spending the last three months writing on Medium.
In no particular order, of course.
When starting on your Medium journey, I…
Why not use the big guns for part 2, right? Who knows. Anyway, I’m back with another installment of the Podcast Player Showdown. A series where I, your plucky story-telling friend, spends a very long time talking about Podcast Players.
Most people talk about Podcasts, as they should, but me? I talk about what we use to play them. Someone has to do it, right?
Remember the rules? Because I forgot them. Here you are in case you did too:
Hi. I’m Amanda, a sometimes writer on Medium.
I’ve spent time writing about various things on this platform. I have stories about Podcasts, Productivity, Smartphones, and one ill-fated post about stocks. Here’s one of my podcast stories. It did fairly well in my opinion. Decide whether you agree below.
Spoiler alert: I will be attempting another learning about stocks through failure post. I explode my Robinhood account, and I freak out after a Google Assignment. I should not have freaked out. But it was fun!
Anyway, I happened to be minding my own business, looking at my phone…
Writing on Medium almost feels like an unwinnable game. You come up with an idea that you can write about with confidence. Something like iPhones, Smartphones, or some sort of technology.
I like iPhones, I like Android phones, and I miss my BlackBerry. Remember when I wrote about my BlackBerry?
You spend a solid day or so writing about the topic you’ve come up with, with Grammarly questioning your intelligence, and outlines questioning your stamina.
You finish your story, post it on ALL OF THE SOCIAL MEDIA only to realize that medium may or may not pay you a $500…
I’m feeling a particular way about Medium these days. I’m on the fence on whether I want to keep going with Medium, or whether it might be time to let the platform experience go.
A lot has happened on Medium lately. The company released their professional editorial team, had a fairly epic snafu regarding Joe Biden and Porn, and now, they’ve given 1000 writers $500 bonuses.
I was a fan of the decision to let go of the editorial team (not exactly the idea of letting anyone go in the middle of a pandemic, but the decision to move towards…
Looking at some more information with the upcoming iPhone 13, it’s safe to say that iPhone 13 is going to be a very popular phone come launch time later this year.
I’ve already mentioned a few of the rumors that I’ve seen so far this year when it comes to the 2021 iPhone lineup, however, there’s always room for more information to come to light. If you’re interested, see what I wrote in my previous iPhone 13 write-up below!
I have a few more rumors to discuss with you guys, so without further ado, let’s get to some more rumors!
Typically my writeups about affordable smartphone rumors are happy!
New phones, new features, new reasons to head to the local electronics shop to deplete your wallets. Talking about smartphones can be a monumental occasion. A reason for celebration!
Today, we are not celebrating. Instead, we are reminiscing.
I’ve recently heard the all but confirmed rumor that LG Mobile will be officially bowing out of the Mobile business as of April 5th. This rumor is all but confirmed, but there could be some rumor for error still. As of right now, we have not hit April 5th.
Considering the recent failings…
It’s me 😊. I give my random opinion on various aspects of Technology, Life, and everything else in between.
