February Favorites: Tech Edition

Coffee & Computer

Happy March! I thought I’d try a new series out on this blog where I list my favorite things from the previous month. So here we go… my tech / digital marketing favorites from February 2015!

Social Media Favorites

Follow on Instagram and Twitter

I recently changed my Twitter and Instagram handles from @amye_ to @heyamyerickson. What can I say? The underscore was getting old.

Twitter wins as my overall favorite social media site for February. Although I’ve been on the site for years, it stood out to me last month because I feel like I connected with more people than usual. And that’s the point, right?

Cell Phone: Apps, Accessories, & More

I did something last month that has been slowly changing my relationship with my cell phone: I turned off almost all of my notifications. I still have a couple of necessary ones on (text messages, phone, and WeChat), but everything else is off.

I still check my apps often, but I’m doing it on my own terms, not because the notifications are driving me crazy. And that’s a start.

Blogs & Vlogs

When I read blogs, I usually get frustrated because the lifestyle portrayed isn’t realistic for where I currently am in life. That isn’t the case with SavingMoneyInYourTwenties.com

The theme of the blog is that you can have anything you want, but not everything. If you splurge in one area of your life, you might need to cut back elsewhere. Ashley still enjoys eating out at Chipotle, but she saves money by cutting her own hair (which she shows you how to do!). Check out her blog for practical tips on how to save money!

What were your tech favorites? Are there any categories that I should include next time? Let me know in the comments below!
