It’s been an unusually hot summer here this year. So hot, that I could barely keep my head around my work. There was always this gentle temptation to leave everything behind and let somebody else do my job. But I couldn’t. Part of it was the fact that I enjoy what I do way too much, and part was that I couldn’t find anybody who could replace me well enough. If I’ll ever find somebody able to do that, I’ll let you know. But chances are that this will never happen.
So, back to our stuff here: what’s new? A lot of stuff is new. But also a lot of stuff is still secret. All I can do for now is to give you a few hints. 4 hints, to be precise:
- The Kitchen Theme
- The Car Blog Theme
- The Mobile App Theme
- The Author Blog Theme
If you’re into at least one of those topics, then something nice will happen to you during August. Something very nice. Just go ahead, stick around and be sure to leave your email so we can get in touch with you when the game starts to heat up. Meanwhile, I will give you something to ponder about.
This month I have another promo code for WPSumo. If you’re new around, you don’t know what WPSumo is. I’ll briefly tell you, then. It’s one of my businesses. Meaning I own an important part of it and I also actively develop it. In more technical words, it’s a WordPress framework. Or a very evolved theme, if you wanted this way. So, without further ado, here’s the promo code that will give you a 50% discount to the Developer License (code will be valid until the end of August):
If you just want to know more, just go ahead and have a look at the features.
Now, do you think there’s a link between this promo code and the 4 websites above? I don’t know what to say… I don’t know… 😉
Running For My Life - from zero to ultramarathoner
The spooky thing about depression is that it sneaks in. There aren’t really trumpets and loud voices announcing: “Hail, hail, this is depression entering the room, all rise!” Nope. It’s slow, silent, creepy. It doesn’t even look like depression. It starts with small isolation thoughts like: “Maybe I shouldn’t get out today, I just don’t feel like going out”. And then it does the same next day. And then the day after that and so on. And then it starts to whisper louder and louder in your ears: “Why would you go outside, you loser? Didn’t have enough yet? Want more people to make fun of how much of a big, fat loser you are?”
And then you start to breath in guilt and shame, instead of air. Every breathe you take is putting more dark thoughts into your body.
Until you get stuck. You can’t move anymore. At all.
