SITSTER, the NEW must have babysitting app

Exploring the world
Do you remember the time you didn’t have to worry about babysitters? Prior to having children l’Homme and I were always out and about. We were out in town going to the movie, shows, meeting with friends without having to worry about anything but ourselves.

How to make new friends via Meetup

I just had a terrific photography experience at the weekend. After my friend Ruth said to me last year she went to a ‘Meetup’ photo gathering I thought I ought to look into it. Meetup in this cool platform that gathers all sorts of events (some free, some with a contribution) where you can choose to meet people who share a hobby similar to yours.

My first anniversary of blogging – thoughts and plans

Jaf in the box, the blog, is 1

Jaf in the box – the blog – is 1! The blog went ‘ live’ about a year ago today – I got a little message from WordPress at the weekend reminding me about this 1st anniversary – and it’s been quite a journey. What have I learnt? What are my plans? When do I blog? Which are my favourite blogs? This is what this blog post will be all about.

I have learnt lots about social media, the blogosphere and lots of techy stuff too over the last year even though I still have a mountain to learn. This blog all started as a creative outlet and as a way to publish some of the many photos I take and share some of the things I enjoy in life. I must say, in spite of all the ‘behind the scenes’ hard work that goes into writing a good blog post, I have really enjoyed the creative process.

I want to say a BIG thank you to each of you for coming along to my blog and reading week after week my humble posts and/or commenting. Continue reading

🇫🇷 Nous vivons dans une époque ou nos possédons un sacré nombre de gadgets et outils électroniques, et nous accumulons une belle quantité de cables en tous genres.  Entre le smartphone, les appareils photos, tablettes, liseuses il est impossible de se déplacer quelque part sans se trimbaler un chargeur!
