A while ago (read: a year or so ago), I did a free webinar on how to integrate a Lightroom gallery into a page on a WordPress website. This used to live over on the Bernskiold Media website, but since we took that down for refurbishment, it has been offline. As I am getting some questions on where and how to find it, I thought I would post it up on YouTube and post it here.
It has passed midnight here in Sweden, which means I would like to wish each and everyone of you a very Happy New Year! I am very excited about the new year and what is lined up and possibly even more excited about everything that is bound to happen that I have no clue about yet. May your year be prosperous and joyful!
My friend Albin shared with me yesterday a link to an article with some amazing photos from a volcano eruption in Chile. There are some truly beautiful photos (including the full one of the one above) so go and check it out. My hat goes off to all of these great photographers for capturing that moment in such a beautiful way.
During almost all the time that I have been running XLD Studios, I have only had an english website for the company, something I have wanted to change for much of this year. Earlier this summer, everything was almost complete, but for a decision on how to do with the translation, did I want to use a translation plugin or install it on a separate server? The choice now fell on the separate server (for better response times when loading) and I am proud to say that the site is finally live.
The looks and pages are all identical to the english version, so if you don’t understand swedish, you’re not missing a whole lot, however the blog contents will be differ as most likely, posts will not be immediately translated or doubled.
My Audible account has been gathering credits over the past months, without me taking any time to purchase some new ebooks. Now that the holidays are here, I thought it would be fun to get myself excited about work again by picking up a few business books to learn some new skills.
As I alluded to yesterday, I desperately need to get better at focusing and one way of doing so is understanding how we typically address situations. One of the best selling books listed at Audible was “Your Brain at Work: Strategies for Overcoming Distraction, Regaining Focus and Working Smarter All Day Long”, which sounded like what I wanted.
This one is definitely a great book, especially to listen to. The author goes into much detail with clear examples on how the brain works in specific situation and builds the book like a case study, with fictional scenes played out to highlight what we typically do, and could potentially do with some extra insight.
Personally, I have experienced a lot of what the author talks about, but have rarely been able to specifically say what it is, know how to address it or how to conjure it. Thus, it’s a book that I absolutely recommend.
You can get it on Amazon if you like the paper version, or the audiobook on Audible.
