Closing my Amazon Affiliate account and a knock back


I’m trying not to get down about this email.

I didn’t start the affiliate account thinking I’d be able to fund all my review units but based on this I shouldn’t have bothered. It’s a bit demoralising to be honest but I’ll try to hang in there but it’s it’s getting harder and harder.

As an independent creator I’m funding everything myself here but I can’t afford to get review units in, this means I’ll either stop reviewing stuff or carry on reaching out to PR companies that only seem to be interested in YouTubers these days.

Man, blogging is hard.

(Sorry, wish this post was a bit more positive)

Stop messing with your site theme


This is a message to future Lee and maybe others who are like me. I’ve gotten into the habit again of tweaking my site theme! This is more out of not knowing what to write about than a need but I’ve fallen into the trap of tweaking the look and feel of the site again.

I’m settled now on this one, it’s clean and readable. It also plays nice with images, something not all themes do well. It’s called illustrar by the way if you’re interested but I wouldn’t recommend you go down the rabbit hole of changing your site theme.

I’ll be back on the creation bandwagon soon.

A GoodTask change I’d like to see

apps, Tech

I’ve been enjoying my time with GoodTask but I’ve hit a display issue that has me rethinking my app choice. It may seem small but I use a to do system to remind me of things I should be mindful about.

You can see that when I do this I don’t see the entire text. A lot of apps do this, I stopped using Things because of it. Strangely Apple Reminders is the best at displaying this. Omnifocus also does a good job here.

I don’t want to make the text smaller with my ageing eyes so if you know a way around it please let me know.

Update: it’s in settings
