7 Facts About Me
1. I’m quite addicted to fresh blueberries
I could eat an unlimited amount of fresh blueberries. I’m so happy that they import them here around the year. I guess I’m using more money on blueberries per week than on my lunches haha. But they are just too delicious!
2. I could use endless amount of phone storage and data
During last month my coworkers were using 5Gb of mobile data. Mine was somewhere around 45Gb haha! Also whatever storage I have at my phone I can fill it in a year. I used to have 128Gb iPhone 6+ in which I had 80Gb of photos and apps after 10 months. Now I have iPhone 6S+ with 64Gb and I am having a huge struggle to clear the memory all the time.
But luckily I’m getting my old 6+ back so that I can use it for some and blog and the another one will only be for work related stuff in future. 🙂 I hope 192Gb total will last for a year at least!
3. I got my driver’s license with a stick car but I have driven 99% automates
… And yesterday we had to change our car to a stick one for a week. I’m not quite sure can I drive to work myself with it haha!
4. I work with technology and reading bad blog posts about tech always makes me mad
I don’t read a lot of tech blogs because it wouldn’t feel like having nice spare time when thinking about work stuff on it. However, if I happen to read them I always become mad when the post is badly written, incorrect or even harmful for the customers understanding.
It’s great those blogs exist though! However, if you want to write a computer buying guide please understand first what is actually important and why. Then make it clear to your readers. If it’s meant to be a general guide for regular shopper don’t focus on weird things that really don’t matter or are too hard to compare (for example one folk wrote about buying a tablet and told that basically all things that matter are resolution and amount of cores in processor. How about using experience, operating system, etc?).
5. I’ve never been in Sweden
… But I’m going in three weeks. 🙂 And the ones who don’t know, Finland shares its western border with Sweden. So, I guess it should not have been that hard to go there within last 24 years.
6. We’re planning to get a poodle
I’ve been allergic to most animals for my whole life. I am allergic to about every animal which drops its hair around. Labradors, cats, rats – nope, I cannot deal with those more than a couple of hours. However, my brother’s hairless terrier and my relatives Spanish water dog haven’t caused me any symptoms.
We’re going to visit some poodle families soon and if I don’t get any symptoms we hope getting our own poodle puppy during 2017. Woof!
7. I’d love to turn this blog self-hosted
I don’t know that much about coding, or hosting my own blog. Anyhow, I’d love to monetize this so that I could create even better quality to you guys. I’d also love to do my very own design. I love the new, fresh look the blog has now but I’d love to change some features that I cannot in wordpress.com hosted blog.
I’m sure this must happen one day. Lately, I’ve started to get more and more willpower to transfer this to wordpress.org. Maybe someday soon I’ll take some time reading everything about being self-hosted and then I’ll do it. When I do that, I’ll be doing another makeover week with the theme of transferring to self-hosted how’s, why’s and when’s. 🙂
