WINTER WEATHER IN TX // CARE PACKAGES FOR THE HOMELESS

I know I’m proud of you yeah, like your second workout this week, great okay, so obviously I’m still working out officially seven months pregnant this week, twenty-eight weeks third trimester. What’s on the agenda today more work and then everything else related yeah yeah. In a way, I’m doing taxes which will didn’t give me more money to do things on the house. That’s true! That’s fun! No! No! So we’re going to work on that today, I figure out what we’re going to have for dinner.

I’r trying to plan meals a little bit better, so we’re going to do that, go to the store and then I’ve got some online client work. So yeah, that’s that’s our day to day work taxes, food TV, /, sit in bed and do nothing time. Always that’s a given well, first coffee and coffee ran out, of course anything pity yeah, that’s all cleared out over there, but that’s not the way that the cars me running down because we’re trying make a pass for the car tube.

So I guess the the truck can either come behind the house, which is there or there’s actually the a big path right through here, just a little bumpier until you get to like right where you’re standing come on this way, let’s see okay, so we can actually Go up in there now too, not that we need to. Let you see this see how the you smell that and see all the butterflies look at this tree. You know there’s a ton of bees on there too, but look at that they’re pulling all the pollen and stuff from this.

It’s like white flowers growing on this thing. This is right in our backyard, but they keep coming this way. Let’s see if you can drive all the way through here, let cut down all those Cedars for more fence posts. So those are me nice. I know there’s some deer over there, everything Brady Brady are you going to cross over there we go and we’re still going to weed eat. This whole area just keeps growing.

I think a little pathway all through here and then cows walked by here certain times. One of those things that balloon, my D is a get this smooth enough where we can make it a running trail Amy. When I ran yeah well, you can actually bike. It. That’d be a lot easier. Your bike is good enough for this, and then these are possibly chairs and a table and there’s actually more over there and we’re going to take it all the way back through there too, because there’s actually only Cedars all through there.

And then this cactus on the left side – oh they just burned, they didn’t really do any like. This is all clear. Already yeah, there’s already grass growing, that’s pretty cool. This is where the story ends so yeah. It goes back another weight like 200 feet or so before it starts curving back that way, and they can expect to the house. Are you guys until before my camera dies, I’m going to show y’all really quick? I know we haven’t talked about the care packages in a while, so it’s going to update y’all on what we have for this month’s.

I just finished out three. I’ve got one sitting here ready and then I’ve just finished out three more care packages. So, if you guys don’t know what the care packages are, if you’re new to this blog or you just haven’t, heard us talk about them, what we’ve been doing for about two years now, thanks to the help of you guys on patreon, is we put together what I call care packages for the homeless, so since we move around a lot, we tend to run across a lot of people that are on the street and being so close to Austin and going to us and quite often there’s a ton of people that just I I see it as needing compassion and love and it’s a whole other topic in its own.

But I’m I’m a huge advocate of just doing every a little bit that you can to make a difference in this world and sometimes a very, very simple gesture can make all of the difference in the world to somebody else. So we started with the ziplock baggies and I would put in like a snack, a water bottle, a toothbrush and some socks or something super super simple. We talked about it on the blog years ago, back whenever it was a Fitness blog, and it was just a large Ziploc baggie that I we would have in the car and I would hand out as we’re driving around if whoever came across anybody.

If we’re walking downtown Austin, I would just carry a couple with me and just okay, so it did die but real, quick before knives again for the pet care packages. I’r just going to show you off: we’ve got our lovely blanket and the weather has been so random here in Texas. It was 70, probably upper 70s yesterday, and then we woke up this morning. It was 42, so I never know you can always be prepared.

So also we have tissues, we’ve got a little toothbrush. Dental kit, refreshing hand, wipes refreshing is key. Sunscreen, some Wheat, Thins snacks, and I try to get some just easily transportable non perishable things that don’t require cooking. So just a lot of crackers and peanut butter type in bars, and then these little travel first aid kits we’ve got some electrolyte waters and socks which these are five packs.

I say this time and time again and in case anybody needs to hear it socks. Are they have been called hobo gold, the guys that we gave a care package to one time? Apparently, socks are some of the most appreciated items that you can give to people on the street so and then, along with that, we’ve got a ton of these lira, bars ton of peanut butter crackers and then a couple little travel-size, my neck size trail mixes.

So that’s what’s in all of these care packages right now, I’ve got four ready to go and yeah we’re going to get these out. Hopefully, hopefully this week, every now and then I’ll get questions from people on where to start. If they want to do something like this, because they see us doing backpacks and all of these big items and it gets kind of overwhelming, but what I tell them is just start with what you can just like.

I said having that Ziploc with just various little items can make all the difference in the world, and I have yet to have anybody turn these down. It’s it’s. It’s kind of heartbreaking whenever we pass these out, because you have this super short interaction with this person, and I don’t know them, they don’t know us and we basically what I’ll do is I’ll roll down the window. It’s usually at a stoplight I’ll roll down the window or I’ll.

Ask him: hey: we’ve got we’ve got these backpacks they’ve got snacks, they’ve got water, they’ve got some essentials in them. Would you like one and they’re usually kind of taken aback by it, because I don’t think that they expect it and Matt’s gotten a hug before I’m freaking out one of these? It’s just it’s! It’s very heartwarming, but it’s also heartbreaking at the same time, because to see somebody so moved by something as simple as socks.

It really kind of reminds you of what’s important in this life, so I always just encourage people do what you can. I know a lot of people don’t like to give money, and that’s you know you don’t you don’t have to if anything, just a smile can sometimes be encouraging for somebody else. You know these are these are people just like us, and I know that there’s there’s a lot of people that might be on the streets for good reason, but the worst thing that this can bring is is just a reminder to them that they are cared for By somebody and so yeah, as if block Maggie, just fill it with a couple random items, you know water, oh man, what too bumpy for you? No, he doesn’t step in he peed into it.

You can see this, that’s it!

How I Tripled My Youtube Income – How To Make Money Online

This article is just to share with you guys how I was able to triple my YouTube income and the sort of strategies that I used and implemented. So if you are reading this – and you were also somebody who was trying to up their YouTube game going to figure out tick, tick, try to figure out tricks and tips on the ways to grow your blog that have worked at least for me.

I figure if I can help at least one person out this article has done its job, I’m going to say the sentence I have never uttered before that. I never thought I would uh derp, but here it is YouTube just paid my mortgage payment. It just did during the month of August I kind of changed my strategy. I decided mid to late July that I was going to upload a article every single day Monday through Friday, and each Monday was going to be a specific theme.

Tuesday was going to be a theme Wednesday, Thursday Friday and I sat down with my Google Calendar. I will outline this along the way, so you know exactly how I did this and if I miss something and if you have any questions, let me know down below in the comment anyway. I sat down two weeks before August first and I opened my Google Calendar and I viewed it on the month like not the week not the day.

I can see the entire month of August on the screen and I went and color-coded all the Monday’s in one color Tuesdays, Wednesdays, so on and so forth from there. I knew that Monday was going to be this topic. Tuesday was going to be this topic and from the knowledge of the topics I made lists of you know, I need five Mondays for this month, but I’m going to have six or seven different ideas and I kind of just organized all the Mondays Tuesdays Wednesdays.

So, by the end of the week in July, I had the entire month of August planned out with articles that was step one step. One is kind of the easy part of the game sitting down and saying: okay, here the days they’re going to go up, step, twos Rick, it’s a little more complicated. That’s when I sat down and said okay, what days of the week am I going to film these cuz? I need one day for each week I work a full-time job.

I was doing a show. I work with clients online, so I work full-time job, music, business, YouTube clients and I was in a musical all at once, so I actually decided I didn’t want to cut out any time for family and friends. So I woke up at 5:30 or 6 o’clock on filming days granted not a morning person. I actually did a article on how to become a morning person which I will link right above in the cards, because I had to become one real, quick anyway.

Jumping back on track, so I believe it was Wednesday, Thursday and Friday three days a week, I would wake up two hours early and getting up two hours earlier, for those three days gave me six hours of time and in those six hours each week. I would film five articles edit plan their uploads like their thumbnails, their copy their SEO. All that stuff would be figured out, and then I use the YouTube scheduler once they were all set and done.

I also made it really easy. Some people like to use like their iPhones or their iPads, to write out their ideas. I was keeping lot of my stuff on steno pad, so I would know it would say the day of the week like the topic like if we were talking YouTube or money. Your budget or self-improvement it would stay down, it would say down here then I would have the exact title of the article and then all the notes, so I would have it all there for me and it was just very organized.

I think one of the biggest misunderstandings with youtubers is people think, oh, we just sit in front of a camera and talk and upload it and that’s great, we’ll figure out a topic when we get there. There is so much writing and planning and strategy that goes into this, even if you’re just doing a article by yourself July, I did a collaboration article with nine other blogs, so that was planning and scheduling for not just me, it was ten.

Ladies, we are going to get a gentleman in the next one. I promise anyway so step. One was the planning on the calendar step two was implementing when the filming was going to be done and waking up and becoming a morning person and getting myself six extra hours in the week, and if that was enough, Sept 3 was figuring out when to edit. It’s one thing: you just sit down and say here are my filming times, but then, if you don’t have time to edit it, that filming was for nothing.

So I sat down and said here are the times I’m going to dedicate strictly to editing and, to be very honest, I’m a little bit of an ad D kind of person like if I know I have a lot of stuff to do. I have to put everything else away and focus like I’m. Not super ATD like see a squirrel and freak out, but if I have a lot of things to do in one day, I have to like have it on a list and dedicate times and blocks to do them.

There’s an app I’ve actually used on sponsored app. I’ve actually mentioned it in previous articles. It’s called tide, it’s just a free productivity, app it just times out 25 minutes. Camera died, that’s fun anyway, it is a free productivity app and what it does is it times out 25 minutes for you and it’ll play music. Without any words or just background sounds for 25 minutes, then it will ding once those 25 minutes have passed and then you have to schedule yourself a 5 to 15 minute break.

What I like to do is I’ll make a list and I’ll say: ok in this 25 minutes, I’m going to focus on getting a done once everything on list a is done. I can start the break early or if the timer goes off in list 8. Isn’t done, I will go back and finish it once I take that 15 break. If you guys do want to try tied, I will have it linked down below. If you wanted to look it up, it’s free in the App Store – and it just really helps me – keep focused then once the planning, the filming, the editing is all done, then the fun part of just uploading it and then scheduling and designing the thumbnail and when It’s going to go up all that stuff kind of took place afterwards and finally, after all, that work was done, I did everything I could to optimize views on those articles.

I feel like I’m mentioning previous articles in this one, but if you missed my how to optimize your YouTube views and get more views to your blog I’ll link it up here only because I don’t want to have to re-emphasize all those things and that article is Just very focused on it, but I wanted to try and get as many eyeballs on my articles in the first 24 to 48 hours, because that’s what helps it show up in search later and again.

That is all talked about in that article up above, but things I did. Is I utilized all my social media forms. There are certain ways that I would post to my facebook or my Instagram or my Twitter again. Those are discussed up above in the card. I’m just going to keep sending that over and over again, because there are certain ways that work better on each platform. If you’re interested good and check that out – and then the last thing I did, that is kind of new for me to do is I was emailing my email list like every Friday, just updates hey, if you missed it, here’s something new Instagram stories.

I would just screenshot the picture or the icon of the new article going out and I would say: hey guys new article link and bio. You know all that fun stuff, but the email list was really nice because I could see who opened the email who clicked? What article so I could see what kind of topics my followers were interested in and then I would hand those articles over to my clients as well to show them.

You know here’s what I’m working on is there anything that you would like to UM that you see on these articles that you want to do for yourself or include in your articles, I’m finding it really rewarding to just sit down with clients over Skype and just Kind of discuss their goals and my goals, but it is also nice to share with them my article, so they can see you don’t here’s what Kristen’s doing here’s, how she’s implementing here, all the steps she is taking and this article is kind of just like scratching.

The surface everything that we talked about in those sessions, but I did want to share with you guys this kind of milestone again. This is not a brag. Look at me sort of thing I just want to share with you guys what I was doing, because I’ve been getting a lot of emails. 99.9 % of them are really nice and encouraging, like hey girl, saw your blogs really grow into putting a lot of work into this. I can tell, and there’s always the one or two that are just emailing and saying things like.

I know that you’re cheating the system and you’re buying views you’re buying subscribers curve. I were buying subscribers. I would have more than five thousand subscribers. Anyway. I try not to really respond to the haters or the trolls, because they’re going to be there, I feel, like I got this far from that hard work and on top of everything we’ve just previously talked about in this process, I was taking at least three or Four classes online, like during my lunch breaks or in between projects at work, I would take like 15-minute breaks and take notes on just online classes and interviews that talked about everything from SEO: the best ways to market social, a marketing, a filling marketing like I feel, Like I got a third education, I feel like I not have a third degree just because I sat down I’ve on my third notebook of notes.

People would think I’m absolutely insane and they’re probably right, but I wanted to sit down and kind of make a article explaining here’s why there was so much growth. Here’s what happened to my blog! If anybody wants this to happen to them, here’s how I did I’m not saying it will happen for you, it might or may not. You might have a better. You know response than I did, I’m just letting you know here the things that I did and I don’t regret it.

I feel like that was the biggest challenge I’ve ever given myself for a summer days. That would start at 5 o’clock in the morning and not end until 11 o’clock at night. Those were tough days, but now that the hard work is done, I’ve never woken up in the morning and said man. I feel really bad that I got up and caught all that stuff done just put in the work put in the work. If you have any other questions or concerns, please feel free to leave them down in the description box.

Growing Passive Income for Wealth: INVESTING in shares/stocks || SugarMamma.TV

So you can make more informed decisions when it comes to managing your money and actually see your financial wealth build and actually realize that financial security and independence is well within your reach.

When you make great decisions with your hard-earned money, all right today, guys I’m talking to you about passive income streams. There are a whole range of different passive income streams, some which are very conservative, some, which are quite aggressive. However, it’s important that you pick the right income stream for you and for your financial goals and for your risk appetite now the people who are really nervous when it comes to investing and don’t have much experience.

They may want to start off investing in a fairly conservative styles of passive income sources, and these are typically cash savings accounts term deposits, maybe even some government bonds or even corporate bonds and typically because they’re more conservative, their returns are a little bit like that. Typically, a passive income stream, that is the yield of these conservative types of investments, ranges between 2 up to 3.

7 percent per annum. But these types of conservative assets generally have no capital growth, they’re, predominantly income based, which means if, for example, you bought a bond for $ 100,000 and the yield will say 3 percent, you would be getting only $ 3,000 a year in passive income from that bond. There is no capital growth element to it whatsoever, but if that’s right for your risk profile, you don’t like taking risk and you’re uncomfortable with it.

That may be the right type of investment for you now, the more aggressive or assertive you could say of investments for building long-term wealth are things like residential property, commercial property, domestic shares or international shares, and these returns are typically, as history shows a lot higher, because The more risk you take, the more of a reward you should get so residential property on average yields between 3 point to up to three point: nine percent.

But when you take out all the expenses of running a property, it typically comes down to a yield of around about two to two-and-a-half per year with commercial property. The yield tends to be a little bit higher around five point, five percent and when it comes to investing in shares, depending on whether it shares a base, for example, Australian shares the yield tends to range between four point: seven percent up to five point: seven percent.

When you factor in franking credits now, there seems to be a lot of misconception when it comes to investing in shares and comparing it against conservative estimates such as fixed interest bonds. However, I want to make sure you guys are aware of the difference between these two different types of asset classes and the impact over the long run. So the best way for me to show this to you is by showing to you what has happened in history.

If I were to take a hundred thousand dollars and put it into a term deposit in 1979 and just took the passive income each year and spent it, I never reinvested the money or added any new money to that term. Deposit account by 2016 that hundred thousand dollars would still only be worth a hundred thousand dollars, but it actually would have eroded away because that hundred thousand dollars could not buy me.

What it can today is what it could have done in 1979 and I would still be earning a passive income of two thousand five hundred dollars per year. That’s it, however, if I put that 100 thousand dollars into a diversified share portfolio of Australian shares, again just taking that passive income through the dividend, yields and spending it, adding nothing to it and not reinvesting any of my dividends that share portfolio would now be worth One point one: two million dollars and the passive income that I’d be receiving from that one point: one two million dollar share portfolio would be worth over fifty one thousand dollars every year.

Now, I’m pretty sure you would rather be receiving a passive income stream at 51 thousand dollars a year versus two thousand five hundred dollars a year. So you’re probably wondering how is this possible? How is the same amount of money invested in two different asset classes with SIPP, not too dissimilar yields over the long run so incredibly different? Well, it comes down to the fact that shares are two-dimensional assets.

They not only do they produce income, they also produce growth and that income grows with the capital value with shares. When a company raises profits, they reinvest some of those profits back into the business for future, compounding growth and to expand them, prove the value of the business, and then they pay a dividend on that and that dividend grows every year as long as the company grows. Now a lot of people say well, fine can investing in shares is incredibly volatile and comes a lot of risk.

And, yes, you are correct, you do when you invest in shares. There is a lot of high to medium term volatility over the short term medium term. I want to show you this other chart. This will really change your perception of really how safe term deposits are. If we look at the yield on term deposits and compare them against shares and even commercial property, in fact, it’s actually the toh deposits, which are a lot more volatile over that 17 year period, so that perception of term deposits being safe.

And you can sleep well at night versus shares being risky and dangerous isn’t actually quite true. So what this boils down to you? If you’re trying to build up a passive income stream, you’ve really got to look at the underlying assets in your portfolio. You do not want to forego long-term growth for stability. You need to make sure that your passive income and your investment portfolio is sustainable.

Is going to provide you with that passive income. That’s going to grow over time and ensure that you remain financially independent. Do not fall into the trap of just going in investing purely for yield with no capital worth. This will come with a lot of regret, further down the track and if you’re going to build up an investment portfolio where you’re going to incorporate more of these growth style, investments such as international and Australian shares and even some property make sure you diversify.

You do not need to go all or nothing most. People have a diversified share portfolio where they may have some commercial property, some residential property. You know a mixture of Australian shares and maybe some international ETFs. It’s a really well diversified portfolio which smoothes out the overall volatility over the long run and, of course, make sure that you look at the yield but make sure that the yield is consistently growing over time.

This should be the foundations of what you look for in a quality investment. Now, as you’re reading all of my money Monday articles, I really hope that your site to get it be more interested and a bit more inquisitive and maybe even tempted to start building up a share portfolio. But please remember you do not need to stress about which shares to pick and where and how and what you can very easily a listed investment company that does all that work for you or even a managed funds.

It doesn’t all that work for you or even look at a diversified ETF. There are so many different investment options out there. You do not need to put the stress and pressure on your shoulders as to what stocks to pick when how and why this can be outsourced to a professional all right. Everyone, I really hope you’ve enjoyed this article – remember, invest the for the long while invest for long term, capital, growth and long term growing yields, that’s the key foundation to building healthy, strong, passive income streams ciao for now, if you haven’t already subscribed, please make sure you Do

Basically I’m going to take you through I’ve got all these tabs open of the things that I found that I think are really important and of course it’s not just this one person who I’ll show you, as mentioned the trend. It’s probably come from various different points, but I’ll show you kind of what I think are the the big ones that just kind of kept popping up so the first one that is also, I think for me most interesting, is the minimalism trend.

So this kind of actually crosses into a lot of different categories, but the basic idea actually I’ll, show you here on my page. I have this kind of vlog, it’s just all about minimalism in design, and they talk about minimalism actually is which I think is important to define when you’re actually telling someone it’s the trend, so the Webster dictionary defines it as a styler technique. That is characterized by extreme sparseness or simplicity, so I think this is really interesting because a lot of times I mean in the past years, what has been like the most common kind of issue in product design or something that we’ve been trying to solve is engagement.

We want to engage people, we want them to spend a long time on our apps. We want them to. You, know their screen time to them to increase and now really making a pretty conscious shift into basically the opposite, so people are talking a lot about. You know making sure that you’re not actually engaging the user when you don’t need to be. You know making sure that when you’re asking them for things or when they’re moving through your product, you’re, not just like throwing unnecessary notifications at them or pop-ups, and all these kind of annoying things, people are even more like anxious and busy and overwhelmed as it is In this modern world, so I think it’s important that we as product designers and in this industry are just kind of being mindful of that.

So another thing from this anethe messier he talks about like time-saving design features like people are really really busy. So you want to actually make sure that the time that they spend using your product or your service is for good reason or you know, you’re actually providing value for them. So you know talking about designing with common use and user navigation patterns context. Specific features.

That’s interesting gentle nudges. He calls them, which I think is kind of interesting. I hate that he says the word pop-up, though, because I think the world would be a better place with less pop-ups, but it’s kind of interesting. You know he’s just sort of talking about how we need to kind of keep the user in mind a little bit more going forward, and what are the common issues that they’re facing in their lives, which are very often like anxiety and overwhelmed? He also down here talked about like getting rid of common annoyances.

This is an interesting article. He talks yeah, I mean people are using an average of 30 apps per month and about 10 a day, which is a lot actually interesting that he talks about 2019 could be the beginning of the end of passwords. So actually, just using like verification codes and not having to think of all these passwords constantly, it’s going to be kind of helpful, so talking about here, page load times, storage, space transitioning from one device to another.

That’s interesting, making sure that you know you’re. It’s a cohesive experience for the user, so I think that I mean I did talk about minimalism before, which was which I kind of got out of that I got out of that sock there, but the point that I think is really important is that you know We I mean apples talking a lot about it. I think Google, as well just about actually like reducing screen time, I’m getting pop-up messages on my phone.

All the time telling me how much screen time, whether it was more or less than more or less than last week, and I think that is important to be conscious of moving forward into into 2019. So first one minimalism, the second one is the Internet of Things. So more specifically in that realm is voice. I mean, I know that. That’s also like a common thing that everybody’s talking about, but you know, there’s a huge rise in smart home devices like things like nest, things like Google assistant, obviously like Siri as well.

This photo is just I can’t look at this photo without thinking that it’s like just a little bit, there’s just something weird about it. I don’t know it’s not a good photo. Let’s just say that so this person cata Cadabra studios – I would I would have put another photo in there. If I were you but super interesting, I mean by 2030, 30 percent of searches will be done without a keyboard or screen. I think that’s something really to be conscious of so how can your product or service actually interact with these voice assistants, and how can you make that a streamlined process and actually delight your user with that? It’s going to be really really interesting, yeah so pop about this time when ecommerce here yeah so combining voice technology and preset commands, so customer sim can simply ask for what they want and get it.

I mean a good great example of this is how Google assistant has actually integrated with uber. Basically, what they’re doing is you can actually say to your Google assistant order me an uber to go to work and Google assistant knows where you work. They know where you live, and they can just order it instantly without you having to put in all that extra information. It’s a really good example of integrated voice interfaces, so that is definitely going to be a big one.

The third one, which is cool for me because I work a lot in this sort of category – is the third kind of trend that a lot of people are talking about. Is content focused experiences, so this is coming from like a prediction. Upcoming UX trends from Academy X, I yeah it’s super interesting they’re, talking about how you need to make sure that the content that you’re actually showing the user and the way that you’re guiding them through it is like a delightful experience and isn’t you know you’re not Giving them too much you’re, not confusing them you’re, not overwhelming them, so it’s like 2019.

One of the biggest trends would be the ability to tell compelling stories around a digital experience. I think that’s really really important to think about they’re talking about like live article and article ads, so that’s more like the marketing around your product, but also super important to keep in mind, I mean we talked about it all the time how UX design and product Designers should know more about the business more about the marketing of their products.

It’s really important to keep that in mind when you’re building them yeah. I think that, in summary, for the content focused experience is the idea is just that. It’s important that people have a nice Pleasant time, interacting with your product or your service. So in you know, it means that, like words, actually matter a lot, the content, whether it’s article or animation or just text, it’s important that you think a lot about that and that shouldn’t be a second step.

It shouldn’t be, you know, even the content writer, the copywriter should actually be involved in sort of more in the development phase. So I think that’s really interesting. Moving forward into 2019. The next one is talking about it’s down here. This one was also from a NASA Nasir and he’s talking about making personalized experiences for the user and how you know, making them a little bit more more streamlined.

So you know whether it’s in the form of emails based on knowledge of previous website interactions or text messages. You know it’s important that your UX is actually personalized to the user. It’s going to be pretty big in 2019. He’s talking here about chat BOTS. I find that interesting because I kind of think chat. Bots are on the outs, but that’s just me personally. So don’t you know, don’t don’t look too much into that, but I think the voice is on this way in and I think chat.

Bots are kind of a thing of the past. I know myself. I hate I just hate, interacting with a chat bot. I really find it super impersonal, which is interesting because Facebook, of course they’re popping up all the time. Do you want to see like if I’m running ads or something on Facebook? It’s always like your I’d performed like this. Do you want to see more information, and I guess it’s interesting that they can? You know quickly do that in the form of a conversation.

It does create a little bit of this personalized feeling, but I think that, just in general, we can use a lot more of that – let’s see here, just yeah paying. Okay, this is cool so based on trends see today. This means paying attention to things like transparency and security. Now we live in Germany, which, like security data protection, is really really big, but I think it’s really cool that it like this is going to kind of transcend into the rest of the world.

I mean it makes sense right like like with what’s going on politically right now, people are really into transparency, they’re really into you, know, honesty and they don’t want their data used. For you know weird creepy secret stuff, so I think it’s important to think about that. You know think about the political space what’s happening and then like actually seeing how that translates or figuring out how that translates into product design, and you know the things that you’re building yeah, so that’s kind of a really cool one.

I think that’s that’s quite interesting to think about. He also goes into talking about in more detail about that. So definitely will have all the links for these articles down below. So you can read them all yourself in depth. If you so choose now, the next one that is kind of interesting is just more of a like. An industry focused trend, and we’ve talked a little bit about this in the past articles and like two articles ago, I think we talked about this John did just about how the way that we define UX as an industry and the way that the actual positions are Called and what your actual job title and role will be, is going to change a lot.

So what’s interesting right now, it’s not really an article, actually it’s more of a report, but it’s a state of the UX and 2019. I think it looks really nice. I really like the way it looks so we’ve seen quite a lot this year at your curating and sharing 2239 links with these are the amount of people. I guess who have read them. 260,000 designers they’ve isolated these trends. Basically, coming from that, so that’s kind of interesting.

This is a really cool one. I would I would suggest reading it, but one thing that I thought was really cool. Was this like everyone is a lead, so you’re all excited I’m in design levo and then you look around you’re like oh everybody is a design lead right now, which is you know a little sad but interesting to know in the year. You know coming up, so this, I think, is like pretty much sums it up quite well, this this little animation here, like you’re two months into your career and you’re, a lead designer right or senior UX, and that’s actually kind of interesting, because John, our CEO straight Out of university was the like senior UX designer at like a really big German company, and I think it’s kind of funny it’s very telling for where the industry was at back then.

So we are seeing a bit of a shift. But what’s interesting is based on based on like a scan at the market. There’s like everybody’s looking for senior UX designers. It seems like that is sort of the base level for what you need on a product team, and I think that that is going to maybe shift a little bit. You know going forward because we’ve got a lot of entry-level UX designers coming in and they won’t have the knowledge or experience to be seniors.

So I think that’s really something kind of interesting, so they kind of sum up. Doesn’t you start looking at seniority through new lenses, so be proud of your lead title? You know that’s cool, but if you consider seniority from the perspective how much impact you’re able to make, then you have a better sense of where you are along in your career. Trajectory that’s really interesting. So then they kind of go on to talk about actually strategy and making sure that you can be bigger part of the business other than just you know.

Creating you know the visual design or the even they. You know the experience design. So that’s kind of a cool article that I would definitely recommend reading it’s really insightful cool. Let’s move on to ba ba ba ba ba the last thing. Actually that was like five trends that we just talked about the last thing, which I think is kind of interesting and we were having some pretty heated debates here at AJ and smart about this is a flat design versus material design.

So there are some designers who are predicting that material design is going to kind of take over flat design. I would be really curious to know what you guys think about that. It’s yeah, it’s basically kind of a debate right now in our office, so yeah I’d like to know what you guys think and then we can kind of tell you what we think. Oh I’ll show you mine. If you show me yours, was that too much.

Maybe it was too much sometimes. I am too much okay, good, so yeah I’ll put this link down here as well, so you can kind of actually learn what the difference is between the two things yeah. Maybe we can just go through really quickly flat design, so yeah entirely opposite of side design, absence of details so flat design, absence of eight details, simplified and faint colors, so think of super simple streamlined material design.

So this is so they call it like semi flat. That’s funny or flat design. 2.0. It’s a little bit more paper. Ask yes, you can see here. So it’s like things, look like almost like a piece of paper, but still in a flat way, so it doesn’t have that real look either and people are thinking that that’s actually going to be taking over a little bit more than flat design coming in 2019. So we’ll see we’ll see, you’ll be interesting good, and the last thing that I want to talk about before I let you guys go is one of our design leads here.

At AJ and smart Tim Hoffer wrote an article in 2009 19, what in 2016 that, I think is just super relevant. He just was talking about like design trend reports and how it’s kind of useless and read a bunch of reports and look into these kinds of things, because you can never really tell like he says here determining the trends of next year is like reading a reading. Tea leaves it’s pretending to speculate about what might matter soon, but it’s always based on what the authors already know about them now, which I think is just very insightful.

Thank you Tim. It’s very true. I mean there could be a new technology that just jumps up in the next few months and that will just change everything so we’ll see. But I think that that is really yeah just kind of interesting to remember. Like I’ve just told you a bunch of things that I found across the internet, it might mean nothing, it might mean something, but I like to be informed, so I think it’s important.

You know to just be informed about these things, so that was my first ever trend report coming from AJ and smart Brittney reporting from aging and smart on the trends for 2019. If you like, this kind of article, definitely give it a like, if you would like to subscribe, that would be even better. I have to say no, not even better. It would be just as good, so thanks so much for listening. I hope that you enjoy this.

I hope you learned something I’d love to know what you think is trending what you think in 2019 is going to be really cool, and it’s going to you know, take the design world by storm so pop those down in the comments, and we can have to Start a little discussion, yeah thanks, so much for listening have a great day bye guys. My name is Brittany. Bering, and this is my digital trends report. You know my name.

This is Brittany, bowring reporting. I think I actually at one point in my life as a child did want to be a reporter. This is Brittany bowring, and this is the design report.
