Having an online shop isn’t always easy

Having an online shop isn’t always easy

Yup, we all heard the story about how digital nomad was cool and work everywhere, anywhere, any time and of course every time.

It sounds cool when one can work at Starbucks, but it’s not that cool if you think about it from another perspective.

First of all, there is no holiday. I already forgot how to enjoy a holiday. Note that I have been freelancing and has never really gone out of work (touch wood, it never going to happen), so I have been constantly working all the time.

25th December is the big holiday, I dare say almost all countries are having a day off, but not online shop owner, like myself and my wife. The next 6 days aren’t short of work either.

It’s not exactly an easy job to trade for flexible time. Sometimes, a 9 to 5 job sounds great for me.

Possible WordPress features

Possible WordPress features

Kristian Strand

One feature I am keen about to add into WordPress is the typography. Font or typeface is something everyone going to want to change, and it should be within WordPress just like how menu feature (although fork from WooTheme) in today in WordPress.

WordPress can easily alter the body class to change background colour and image, why can’t it change font family too? I don’t see why it is not possible.

With the recent development of WordPress, it seems they are now changing from a content management system to an entire website builder – Gutenberg. I know, it may seem a bit ambitious to say so, but that should be the direction WordPress is working on.

Note that Gutenberg too does not have typography customization, and if and when WordPress is about to implement it, why not in the system itself instead of just within Gutenberg.

We see how customizer comes to live and everyone seems to be getting used to it, then comes the logo (although fork from Jetpack), favicon and why is it not typography!?

Retire young

At least this video is honest. Save, save, save and more save to have enough for retirement, and if you’re lucky and “hardworking”, you eventually get to retire younger.

One more thing in the video, the compound interest thingy. Used to be very technical financial word for me until I learn more about it, make sense.

Using the old saying from Gandhi (surprisingly still work for today): Earth provides enough to satisfy every man’s needs, but not every man’s greed.

We all consuming electronic good more than anything else, that’s the reason we cannot retire young. Not only that, we prefer to pamper ourselves as soon as possible than later or slower.

Death sentence?

Death sentence?

Matt Botsford

I would agree to have the death sentence to stays instead of removed. One of the reasons people don’t go outside killing other people is the punishment you get after the action.

Punishment of holding up oneself inside a cell for a number of years with food, healthy activity and community (abide possible bad influences) is not exactly a severe punishment.

There is every reason to keep the death sentence, but only one – and only one – reason why we should repeal it – innocent people.

So we should work on a great investigation team instead of removing the whole jungle for one tree.

It is the punishment that stopping people from killing another people, period. The only one punishment that can stop people from doing something we all agree to not want to is to give it a severe punishment.

What is wrong with “deleting” a drug lord when you catch one? When you found a virus on your computer, you don’t keep it there until your computer dies down, you investigate what it does, how it does, how many it did and you delete it.

Sounded financial

It’s actually very easy: Buy what you can afford and need.

Everyone has something (or a lot of things) that you don’t need or have never used in the last 6 months, go into the storeroom and throw them away.

There are many things that you probably don’t need nowadays. I mean a watch? Really? Your phone is on your hand all the time, what’s the big deal to take a look there. Another shoe for leisure? Really? You can’t just wear the jogging shoe on your shelf? Hell, I even think facial foam wash is a waste considering I can just soap up my face with soap I used on my body.

A Macbook cost $1000, but you don’t have it, then don’t buy it, use what you already have or buy one that you can afford.

Besides a property and possibly a vehicle, I don’t see there is any need to take up a loan. Both of those are considered a large amount, the rest is just a small amount that you don’t need a loan or get into debt just because.

It’s always plus and minus, that’s it. You plus a laptop you minus money; you plus the money you minus time, and so on.
