If I had to choose one thing that would change the way I approach my life, it is the fact that I no longer work with a computer. After a long day at work I no longer have a place to type and a mouse to click, so I use a pen and paper to write and type. I am now able to be more productive and more intentional than I have ever been.
Writing and typing is one of the most common reasons that people stop exercising. I’ve read that some people find it hard to get back into the gym, while others are just too lazy to work out. I’ve heard that some people don’t like to write in front of the computer or on a phone because of the distraction. I don’t think either of these are true.
I’m going to take a quick break on this one, so when we get back, I’ll tell you how I turned my writing, typing, and drawing into a new habit. To start, I’ll be posting a daily, weekly, or monthly post (I’ll try to get at least one in every day). If you want to join in, you can always email me at [email protected].
Tyrus is a fictional character in a television series about a man who has been living for over twenty years on a desert island. He’s a man who has no memory of his past, but a number of people have seen him from time to time over the years. On his island on “the day after tomorrow,” he’s expected to meet up with some people who have seen him before.
The best news is that you can now get a daily post on tyrusfox.com. As long as you type in “tyrusfox”, you’ll get a link to your own daily post every morning. If you don’t, you can always create your post through the Google Group (see below).
The Google Group is a Google+ hangout that is open from 7am to 7pm (Mountain Time) on any day of the week. You can join as many times as you like, and the limit is 100 people. You can also type in your name and go to the new page to see your status. This is a great way to stay connected to the world of web 2.0 news.
I love the idea of this group. Anyone can join and it doesn’t require you to be a member. If you click on the “I’m a member” button, you’ll get an “official” Google+ profile. After you join, you can start posting and get your own custom link to your own personal Google+ profile.
You have two choices. You can join as many times as you like and then go back to the page for a moment and then go back to the page for another moment. At this point, you can still be a member for two weeks, but you can still set up your own account.
You can be a member for one week and then choose to leave or cancel when your membership ends. As far as I know, that’s the only way to get rid of your Google+ profile.
After the first week, you can still keep the website you started for two weeks, but you have to pay $1 a month for the privilege. That’s the price of access to the content and features on the site.
