I’ve been on a health kick lately trying to eat better and be more active. I’ve noticed an overall tired feeling in the evenings and need to change my eating habits so I feel more energized for my two little ones. I’ve had great luck with a few apps in the past, but Apple has recently pushed several updates to help gear people to monitor their health more. The apps I have the best luck with give me an arbitrary number to try and reach. While some people don’t care for this approach, I’ve had the best luck with it in the past and serves as a great motivator to keep me going. Here are my favorite apps I’ve experimented with so far and am still learning.

You Should Be Playing Love Letter

Love-Letter

Wanting to get into more advance board games, I started looking around at what all was available. While overwhelming, I did learn a lot from various sources that cover different genres of board games. One of my favorite articles, and a re-occurring topic of the site, is when Loyd Case visits Tested with a batch of new board games. One game he talked about on the website and the Tested Podcast is called Love Letter.

Website Pet Peeves

As someone who builds websites, here are my top five biggest pet peeves your website must not do.

1) Don’t have music on your website autoplay upon loading. Never.
2) Horizontally scrolling sites are awful and clunky. I don’t care what Rich says.
3) Stop relying on Flash to get your content across.
4) Adapt responsive design and move away from mobile sites. They are terrible all the time.
5) Stop making your websites look like a Powerpoint 2007 presentation.
*Bonus, stop using fonts from Powerpoint in your logo.
