This Is How I Work Blogathon
This excellent idea for a blogathon comes from the lovely Mariah at A Space Blogyssey. Since my own work life has been a bit ridiculous lately, I spectacularly missed the cut off date for this one. (My drafts folder is ridiculous) So hopefully no one minds my late entry - totally unacceptable for work by the way. It's less about the movies, and more about the blogger process. She asks us to answer these simple questions:
What apps can you not live without? - Twitter and Netflix. Twitter is my #1 way to stay in touch with my fellow film fans. There are no video stores near me so Netflix is how I rent and stream. Plus, being the mother of a three year old, Netflix is so nice to have at a restaurant.
What is your favorite blogging app? I don't actually blog with any aps. I think Blogger's mobile app is genuinely terrible. I do it all on my computer.
What gadgets (besides your phone) you can't live without? My lap top, obviously. I'm way too addicted to the internet. Also my iPod, because I'm still a loser who uses that for music instead of having it all on my phone.
What lifehacks make your life easier? Exercise is a big one. I love getting out to run, rollerblade, or ride bike with only my music to listen to. Reading is very soothing as well.
Where do you get your news? BBC is my main news site now that CNN's new web page is so ugly and not user friendly. Though a lot of the times I just click links people tweet.
What are your favorite social media apps? Twitter by far because it's my favorite form of social media. Tumblr is nice too, but the ap itself needs some work, particularly with the tagging system.
How do you blog? I typically blog early in the morning before I go to work, or in the evenings after I've put my little one to bed. I always schedule my blog posts for 6:30am, because that's around the time I get to my office and I can just tweet them out before I start working.
What is your day job? I work in a rehabilitation facility for teenagers.
