Scoutie Girl: Use technology to improve your family life

A sneaky second post today to let you know about my new article over on Scoutie Girl.

It will actually be my last regular guest post, which is a shame because I’ve really enjoyed writing them. Ultimately, though, I realised that it wasn’t contributing to my blog goals and in order to achieve them I needed to trim some of the ‘extras’.

If you’re still interested in some of the topics I covered, do let me know and I’ll do my best to tackle them but in a way that’s more in keeping with Atypical Type A.

Scoutie Girl: Tooling Around - Make 2013 your best year yet

I’m not one for New Year’s resolutions, however January is a great time to consider your plans and goals for the year, don’t you think?

With that in mind, my first Scoutie Girl post for the year is all about defining your goals (business or otherwise) and some tricks to help you find the time to achieve them.

You can read the post here.

My goals for 2013 you ask? This is by no means a comprehensive list, but here are a couple of things:

  • Edit our overseas photos and create an album (February)
  • Launch the Atypical Type A redesign and shop (March)
  • Finally renovate the bathroom (Easter break)
  • Do something special to celebrate The Man’s and my ten years (!) together (August)
  • Do up the porch and front garden (September)

Plus many, many plans I have for the business!

How about you? What’s on your agenda for 2013?

SG Tooling Around - Why Technology Matters

Guess who the new contributor to Scoutie Girl is?

You guessed right – it’s me!

I am still pinching myself that I’m writing for one of my favourite blogs alongside some very esteemed names.

I’ve been handed the reins for the Tooling Around column by the ever lovely Janice Bear. I am looking forward to getting to know the Scoutie Girl community and sharing my thoughts and experiences on incorporating technology into your creative business and life in general.

It’s something I’ve been increasingly interested in since starting my business in 2010, and while I’ve touched on it briefly in my Going Paperless series, I knew that this blog is not the right forum for tech- or business-oriented content. I’m thrilled to have the perfect external forum to explore these ideas so as to keep Atypical Type A full of the interior eye candy and projects you have come to expect.

Even if you’re not tech-savvy or a biz owner, I’d love for you to join me over there. I’ll be covering nifty tools, easy tricks and creative lifestyle issues – all easy stuff that you can implement straight away (without a degree in computing).

And with that, I invite you go head over to Scoutie Girl to read my first monthly column.
