The info will apply whether you are selling PDF&#39;s or perhaps your handcrafted bags or other craft goodies. Please note I <em>could</em> write a book on this topic and my process and all the details of what I have done BUT I will try and keep it reasonably short and sweet for you, covering just the basics rather than all the if, buts, maybes and how to&#39;s! LOL</p>\r\n<h4><strong>Just a little background.</strong></h4>\r\n<p>I made my first website in 1999 for my artist teddy bears. It was using a very basic WYSIWYG website editor. I progressed onto making websites using Dreamweaver (NOT an easy learning curve!) and also dabbled in making websites for other creatives for a while. I also tried a couple of other WYSIWYG editors because well really they were a lot easier to use than Dreamweaver and it was possible to make quite lovely looking websites MUCH easier then with Dreamweaver.</p>\r\n<p>Later I gave up making websites for others so I would have more time to focus on designing my bag patterns......Anyway, I have been hanging around the internet for a long time now....I have tried many different platforms and have sold both digital and tangible items. I&#39;ve also sold my patterns on other platforms such as <a href=\"https://www.etsy.com/au/shop/ChrisWDesigns\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">Etsy</a> and Craftsy, which is now Bluprint (and at the time of writing, I am NOT impressed with it) and a few other lesser known places I have tried that I no longer bother with due to the qty of sales not equalling the time or money invested.</p>\r\n<p>My last website was with<a href=\"https://www.shopify.com/?ref=chrisw-designs\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\"> Shopify</a> (<em>all references to <a href=\"https://www.shopify.com/?ref=chrisw-designs\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">Shopify</a> contain an affiliate link)</em>&#0160;and I was with them since June 2015.</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"https://www.shopify.com/?ref=chrisw-designs\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\"><img alt=\"Shopify logo\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a0147e1dbad71970b022ad387beb9200c img-responsive\" src=\"https://chriswdesigns.typepad.com/.a/6a0147e1dbad71970b022ad387beb9200c-500wi\" style=\"display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"Shopify logo\" /></a></p>\r\n<h4><strong>WHY did I leave?</strong></h4>\r\n<p>Well to be honest many people are thinking I left because I didn&#39;t like <a href=\"https://www.shopify.com/?ref=chrisw-designs\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">Shopify</a> but that&#39;s far from the truth. Its actually a great platform, especially if you are new to making websites. Its super easy to use and you don&#39;t have to worry much about technical stuff unless you want to delve into adding more features and expanding beyond the basics and so on. The downside is the fees can really add up, especially when you have to add apps to do some of the things you may have in mind for your website, since the apps have a monthly fee which add up quickly making the seemingly reasonably cheap website platform not so cheap at all!</p>\r\n<p>For me I needed several apps. Since I was selling digital downloads, I needed an App for the digital delivery. I chose <a href=\"https://www.sendowl.com/\">SendOwl</a>. I was very happy with their service and the fact that it also offered stamping of my PDF&#39;s which I felt may help cut down some of the inevitable file sharing that goes on in the digital world when people just don&#39;t understand that in doing that it is stealing. <em>(Well some people do understand that BUT still do it anyway because they just don&#39;t care BUT that&#39;s a whole other story! LOL) </em>Having their name and email address plastered onto the PDF leaves little doubt as to whom initiated the sharing should one ever decide to take on a legal pursuit.....but that aside, people just don&#39;t want to have their name and email address shared around on files so it is a great deterrent! Anyway, <a href=\"https://www.sendowl.com/\">Sendowl</a> was costing me $24 a month. <em>Note this does vary depending on how many products you are selling.</em></p>\r\n<p><em><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"https://www.sendowl.com/\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\"><img alt=\"Sendowl\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a0147e1dbad71970b022ad387cf72200c img-responsive\" src=\"https://chriswdesigns.typepad.com/.a/6a0147e1dbad71970b022ad387cf72200c-200wi\" style=\"width: 167px; display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"Sendowl\" /></a><br /></em></p>\r\n<h4><strong>Accounting</strong></h4>\r\n<p>I used an app called <a href=\"https://www.carrytheone.co.uk/\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">Carrytheone</a> to sync my sales with my accounting package. This also worked well and overall I was happy with its service BUT that was another $32 a month and setup was a bit complicated. I had an accountant do it for me.</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"https://www.carrytheone.co.uk/\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\"><img alt=\"Carrytheone_logo\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a0147e1dbad71970b022ad387cf96200c img-responsive\" src=\"https://chriswdesigns.typepad.com/.a/6a0147e1dbad71970b022ad387cf96200c-450wi\" style=\"width: 416px; display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"Carrytheone_logo\" /></a></p>\r\n<h4><strong>Video Courses</strong></h4>\r\n<p>Since I was also selling video courses, I needed a way to protect the videos from sharing as well, so I used another app to password protect the page on which I was streaming the video, with a passcode. I used <a href=\"https://uselocksmith.com/\">Locksmith</a>. Another $9 per month. While <a href=\"https://uselocksmith.com/\">Locksmith</a> worked the way it was intended the whole way of video delivery was cumbersome and I spent a good deal of time sorting people&#39;s access problems because they couldn&#39;t find the passcode or because of a technical hitch which caused the code not to work!</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"https://uselocksmith.com/\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\"><img alt=\"Locksmith\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a0147e1dbad71970b022ad3adea7a200d img-responsive\" src=\"https://chriswdesigns.typepad.com/.a/6a0147e1dbad71970b022ad3adea7a200d-500wi\" style=\"display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"Locksmith\" /></a></p>\r\n<h4><strong>Leaving</strong></h4>\r\n<p>So I left partly due to the fees I was paying, both for the apps and the <a href=\"https://www.shopify.com/?ref=chrisw-designs\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">Shopify</a> subscription and transaction fees. You can reduce their transaction fees if you use their payment processor so do check that out and take it into consideration if you are thinking of going with them. BUT that&#39;s not the only reason I left. In fact the main reason I left was because <a href=\"https://www.shopify.com/?ref=chrisw-designs\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">Shopify</a> currently at the time of my writing this, did not offer a good way of delivering videos. IMHO! I wanted something better because I am planing do do a lot more things with video. Its the direction I am taking so I needed to find something better.</p>\r\n<p>Its a LONG story to get where I am now LOL so I won&#39;t bore you with the details but suffice to say I didn&#39;t intend on having to use two platforms to make up my website. It just evolved that way due to lack of certain features (Shopping cart related) in the video delivery platform I am using, yet I still wanted to use it because of the video delivery features themselves, so I needed to combine that with a website with separate shopping cart. I &#39;could&#39; have simply retained <a href=\"https://www.shopify.com/?ref=chrisw-designs\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">Shopify</a> and integrated the new platform to my website in the same way I have now BUT then I would have retained the Shopify fees. Given that the new video delivery platform is expensive on its own....even more than the total I was paying for Shopify with all the extra app fees, I needed to look at other options.</p>\r\n<h4><strong>Decisions</strong></h4>\r\n<p>After MUCH research and umming and ahhhing I decided to go with <a href=\"https://wordpress.org/\">Wordpress</a> + <a href=\"https://woocommerce.com/\">Woocommerce</a>. These are technically Opensource and hence do not have fees BUT do bear in mind that sometimes you may want to add more functionality to your website which may require you to purchase a plugin. Usually that is a one off fee....or a yearly fee if you want tech support and upgrades to be ongoing......which you usually do!</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"https://wordpress.org/\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\"><img alt=\"WordPress-logotype-standard\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a0147e1dbad71970b022ad3cd7f0b200b img-responsive\" height=\"96\" src=\"https://chriswdesigns.typepad.com/.a/6a0147e1dbad71970b022ad387d0bc200c-pi\" style=\"display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"WordPress-logotype-standard\" width=\"467\" /></a></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\">+</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"https://woocommerce.com/\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\"><br /><img alt=\"Logo-woocommerce@2x\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a0147e1dbad71970b022ad3adeb0f200d img-responsive\" src=\"https://chriswdesigns.typepad.com/.a/6a0147e1dbad71970b022ad3adeb0f200d-400wi\" style=\"width: 360px; display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"Logo-woocommerce@2x\" /></a><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"https://chriswdesigns.typepad.com/.a/6a0147e1dbad71970b022ad3cd7f0b200b-pi\"><br /></a></p>\r\n<h4><strong>Having said that....</strong></h4>\r\n<p>There are some websites around that offer you a membership to access all of the well known plugins, with updates, for a one off fee. These websites claim to be 100% legit and to be honest they sound as though they are and all the ones I&#39;ve come across appear to make a similar claim to this &quot;<em>All WordPress items such as plugins and themes are licensed under the General Public Licence (GPL). This means that once we have purchased the item we are free to redistribute it if we choose to do so. Your membership to our site goes towards maintaining and buying the subscriptions to 3rd party theme and plugin authors. This form of crowd funding helps keep prices low and we can then pass this benefit on to you.</em>&quot; However my legal knowledge is minimal and whether or not you choose to use one of these services is something you may or may not wish to seek legal advice on.</p>\r\n<h4><strong>Do I like Wordpress + Woocommerce</strong></h4>\r\n<p>Yes, I am very happy with it so far. I like that it has virtually NO limits. If you have something in mind that you would like to do, you can usually find a plugin to expand your site to do it AND a lot of the plugins are free too.&#0160; You CAN sell/deliver digital downloads with Woocommerce BUT I currently have mine delivering on the same platform as my videos because I want the ability to add extras such as little videos, pattern hacks or helpful tips to the sale of my PDF&#39;s and this makes it easy to do so! Admittedly I am still tweaking the system to make it easier for users to use the new platform! Patience please! I&#39;ll get there! LOL</p>\r\n<h4><strong>Hosting</strong></h4>\r\n<p>Now when you have a Wordpress website you do need hosting so bear in mind this is an additional cost. Now here I would like to mention there IS a HUGE difference between Wordpress.com and Wordpress.org so please don&#39;t confuse the two and do your research to make sure you know the differences so you get the right one for YOU! I found a good website which compares the differences is wpbeginner.com and you can find their comparison <a href=\"https://www.wpbeginner.com/beginners-guide/self-hosted-wordpress-org-vs-free-wordpress-com-infograph/\">HERE</a>.</p>\r\n<p>I personally opted for setting up a Self Hosted website (Wordpress.org) because of all the freedom and control I have with a self hosted Wordpress website. Originally I chose to use GoDaddy for my hosting because it is currently housing my Domain names however during setup I had a number of technical hitches which led me to find out GoDaddy&#39;s tech support is BOTTOM of the barrel! And I mean if you think you will ever need tech support....and most of us semi website gurus do....FORGET GoDaddy! GAH!</p>\r\n<h4><strong>Back to the Drawing Board</strong></h4>\r\n<p>A whole lot more research later I landed on<a href=\"https://www.siteground.com/index.htm?afcode=ecf1d9083250e60843116ef86e198233&amp;campaign=Textlink\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\"> Siteground</a> <em>(all references to <a href=\"https://www.siteground.com/index.htm?afcode=ecf1d9083250e60843116ef86e198233&amp;campaign=Textlink\">Siteground</a> contain an affiliate link)</em> and this is where I currently have my website hosted. MAN I cannot say enough about this hosting! Their tech support is the BEST I have EVER come across in all my years of being online and running websites etc...I&#39;ve tried a number of different hosting companies over the years and NEVER have I seen tech support as good as theirs! Trust me in that I don&#39;t say that lightly!!!</p>\r\n<p>I purchased their middle &quot;GrowBig&quot; plan <em>(and was able to pay in my home currency)</em> and was able to secure a really great discount by paying for it several years in advance. You can of course, pay monthly if you wish but then the fees will be higher. If you know you will be sticking around for the long term, its worth thinking about paying for a longer term. Also the middle plan came with free website migration as well as automatic daily backups and SSL included. I liked the idea of having all of these! I had already completed most of my setup by this time and it was just soooo easy to let them move it over for me! I&#39;m lazy! LOL I paid another A$24 to have their SiteScanner for a year which scans for Malware and offers another level of protection for the website.</p>\r\n<p>This is my shameless plug affiliate link banner if you want to check them out!</p>\r\n<p><a href=\"https://www.siteground.com/web-hosting.htm?afbannercode=43795c80ad6d99d8fe1d57d4fe9b77a0\"><img alt=\"Web Hosting\" border=\"0\" height=\"60\" src=\"https://ua.siteground.com/img/banners/general/static/468x60.jpg\" style=\"display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" width=\"468\" /></a></p>\r\n<h4><strong>Domain Names</strong></h4>\r\n<p>Now you will also need a domain name for a Wordpress.org website and maybe you have that already? If not, I recommend getting one with whichever host you choose to use. It just makes setting up a lot easier if they are also supplying you with the domain name. Mind you, <a href=\"https://www.siteground.com/index.htm?afcode=ecf1d9083250e60843116ef86e198233&amp;campaign=Textlink\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">Sitegrounds</a> tech support is so good, they will help you get any current domain name you have, pointing in the right direction!</p>\r\n<h4><strong>Themes</strong></h4>\r\n<p>You can use a free one....and there are a number of free ones around however as with anything free, you will find they are more basic and devoid of a lot of features BUT for a first website, it may not be a bad place to start with and have a play. I personally looked around for a paid one. I looked on Etsy because my thoughts were Etsy is aimed at the creative industry so it would be a good place to find a theme suitable for my needs. I wanted something that not only looks great BUT is responsive (Meaning its display adjusts to suit whatever device it is being viewed on such as a computer or a phone.) as well as being laid out in a look and feel suitable for what I am selling.</p>\r\n<p>I opted for <a href=\"https://17thavenuedesigns.com/\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">17th Avenue Designs</a> because her designs appealed to me <em>(If you choose one of hers, please pick a different one than me! LOL)</em> BUT I ended up buying directly from her website rather than off Etsy. I like to do that where possible because I know sellers get slugged a lot with fees on Etsy. Am I happy? Yes I LOVE the theme. She has a lot of support on her website for helping with setup. I did find personal support was a bit lacking though to be honest. Mind you, Etsy feedback was quite good in that department so perhaps I was just catching her at a bad time.</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"https://17thavenuedesigns.com/\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\"><img alt=\"17th Avenue\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a0147e1dbad71970b022ad387c839200c img-responsive\" src=\"https://chriswdesigns.typepad.com/.a/6a0147e1dbad71970b022ad387cc17200c-pi\" style=\"width: 800px; display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"17th Avenue\" /></a></p>\r\n<h4><strong>Inclusions</strong></h4>\r\n<p>With Wordpress, many people use the platform for their blogs so themes are often only for a Blog OR may include templates for both a blog layout and a website layout AND also be WooCommerce compatible. However some don&#39;t have everything included so if you want your website to look different to your blog in layout and you want to add WooCommerce, then make sure your theme includes all the options you need. In case you are wondering here, I use <a href=\"https://www.typepad.com/\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">Typepad</a> for <a href=\"http://blog.chriswdesigns.com/\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">my blog</a> but I can say if I could choose over I would go with Wordpress for my blog too. ONE day when I have time I will look at moving <a href=\"http://blog.chriswdesigns.com/\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">my blog</a> BUT I haven&#39;t got time for that right now so I have it setup to blend in as best I can for now.</p>\r\n<h4><strong>What don&#39;t I like about Wordpress + Woocommerce?</strong></h4>\r\n<p>Well there is not much I don&#39;t like except that you do need to login to your control panel and update plugins on a regular basis but for me I don&#39;t feel very bothered by that. I like to feel in control of my websites. <a href=\"https://www.shopify.com/?ref=chrisw-designs\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">Shopify</a> is really more set and forget in this department. Wordpress + Woocommerce is IMHO more suited to someone with some website experience or at least someone who is not fearful of diving in and learning. There are Facebook groups dedicated to Wordpress and I found if I didn&#39;t know how to do something, a quick session on google and bob is your uncle LOL!</p>\r\n<h4><strong>My Aussie Website</strong></h4>\r\n<p>For my Aussie Website I am using Wordpress + <a href=\"https://www.ecwid.com/\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">Ecwid</a>. I had my Aussie website with Wix BUT that wasn&#39;t cheap so I decided to move and make my two websites with Wordpress using the same theme BUT with different colours, so they pair together somewhat.</p>\r\n<p>The reason I stayed with Ecwid for my shopping cart is one of laziness (Lack of time) to move and setup all my products and shipping on Woocommerce. for now I will just stay with it as I have it.....if by some small miracle I find time to spare, I will setup WooCommerce too and save the monthly Ecwid fee. Mind you, having said that, Ecwid is easy to use and easy to embed in any existing website so if you already have a website and just want to add a shopping cart, it may be worth your while to check it out!</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"https://www.ecwid.com/\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\"><img alt=\"Ecwid\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a0147e1dbad71970b022ad387d80c200c img-responsive\" src=\"https://chriswdesigns.typepad.com/.a/6a0147e1dbad71970b022ad387d80c200c-800wi\" style=\"display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"Ecwid\" /></a></p>\r\n<h4><strong>Conclusion</strong></h4>\r\n<p>What should you choose? Bear in mind when making the decision that <a href=\"https://www.shopify.com/?ref=chrisw-designs\">Shopify</a> is MUCH easier to use if you are not web savvy. Wordpress + WooCommerce is a learning curve BUT if you aren&#39;t frightened of the technical site of things, it may be your cheapest and most expandable option.</p>\r\n<p>Well I hope this has given you a little insight into the wonderful world of websites and how I do it.

The info will apply whether you are selling PDF&#39;s or perhaps your handcrafted bags or other craft goodies. Please note I <em>could</em> write a book on this topic and my process and all the details of what I have done BUT I will try and keep it reasonably short and sweet for you, covering just the basics rather than all the if, buts, maybes and how to&#39;s! LOL</p>\r\n<h4><strong>Just a little background.</strong></h4>\r\n<p>I made my first website in 1999 for my artist teddy bears. It was using a very basic WYSIWYG website editor. I progressed onto making websites using Dreamweaver (NOT an easy learning curve!) and also dabbled in making websites for other creatives for a while. I also tried a couple of other WYSIWYG editors because well really they were a lot easier to use than Dreamweaver and it was possible to make quite lovely looking websites MUCH easier then with Dreamweaver.</p>\r\n<p>Later I gave up making websites for others so I would have more time to focus on designing my bag patterns......Anyway, I have been hanging around the internet for a long time now....I have tried many different platforms and have sold both digital and tangible items. I&#39;ve also sold my patterns on other platforms such as <a href=\"https://www.etsy.com/au/shop/ChrisWDesigns\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">Etsy</a> and Craftsy, which is now Bluprint (and at the time of writing, I am NOT impressed with it) and a few other lesser known places I have tried that I no longer bother with due to the qty of sales not equalling the time or money invested.</p>\r\n<p>My last website was with<a href=\"https://www.shopify.com/?ref=chrisw-designs\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\"> Shopify</a> (<em>all references to <a href=\"https://www.shopify.com/?ref=chrisw-designs\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">Shopify</a> contain an affiliate link)</em>&#0160;and I was with them since June 2015.</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"https://www.shopify.com/?ref=chrisw-designs\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\"><img alt=\"Shopify logo\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a0147e1dbad71970b022ad387beb9200c img-responsive\" src=\"https://chriswdesigns.typepad.com/.a/6a0147e1dbad71970b022ad387beb9200c-500wi\" style=\"display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"Shopify logo\" /></a></p>\r\n<h4><strong>WHY did I leave?</strong></h4>\r\n<p>Well to be honest many people are thinking I left because I didn&#39;t like <a href=\"https://www.shopify.com/?ref=chrisw-designs\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">Shopify</a> but that&#39;s far from the truth. Its actually a great platform, especially if you are new to making websites. Its super easy to use and you don&#39;t have to worry much about technical stuff unless you want to delve into adding more features and expanding beyond the basics and so on. The downside is the fees can really add up, especially when you have to add apps to do some of the things you may have in mind for your website, since the apps have a monthly fee which add up quickly making the seemingly reasonably cheap website platform not so cheap at all!</p>\r\n<p>For me I needed several apps. Since I was selling digital downloads, I needed an App for the digital delivery. I chose <a href=\"https://www.sendowl.com/\">SendOwl</a>. I was very happy with their service and the fact that it also offered stamping of my PDF&#39;s which I felt may help cut down some of the inevitable file sharing that goes on in the digital world when people just don&#39;t understand that in doing that it is stealing. <em>(Well some people do understand that BUT still do it anyway because they just don&#39;t care BUT that&#39;s a whole other story! LOL) </em>Having their name and email address plastered onto the PDF leaves little doubt as to whom initiated the sharing should one ever decide to take on a legal pursuit.....but that aside, people just don&#39;t want to have their name and email address shared around on files so it is a great deterrent! Anyway, <a href=\"https://www.sendowl.com/\">Sendowl</a> was costing me $24 a month. <em>Note this does vary depending on how many products you are selling.</em></p>\r\n<p><em><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"https://www.sendowl.com/\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\"><img alt=\"Sendowl\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a0147e1dbad71970b022ad387cf72200c img-responsive\" src=\"https://chriswdesigns.typepad.com/.a/6a0147e1dbad71970b022ad387cf72200c-200wi\" style=\"width: 167px; display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"Sendowl\" /></a><br /></em></p>\r\n<h4><strong>Accounting</strong></h4>\r\n<p>I used an app called <a href=\"https://www.carrytheone.co.uk/\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">Carrytheone</a> to sync my sales with my accounting package. This also worked well and overall I was happy with its service BUT that was another $32 a month and setup was a bit complicated. I had an accountant do it for me.</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"https://www.carrytheone.co.uk/\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\"><img alt=\"Carrytheone_logo\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a0147e1dbad71970b022ad387cf96200c img-responsive\" src=\"https://chriswdesigns.typepad.com/.a/6a0147e1dbad71970b022ad387cf96200c-450wi\" style=\"width: 416px; display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"Carrytheone_logo\" /></a></p>\r\n<h4><strong>Video Courses</strong></h4>\r\n<p>Since I was also selling video courses, I needed a way to protect the videos from sharing as well, so I used another app to password protect the page on which I was streaming the video, with a passcode. I used <a href=\"https://uselocksmith.com/\">Locksmith</a>. Another $9 per month. While <a href=\"https://uselocksmith.com/\">Locksmith</a> worked the way it was intended the whole way of video delivery was cumbersome and I spent a good deal of time sorting people&#39;s access problems because they couldn&#39;t find the passcode or because of a technical hitch which caused the code not to work!</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"https://uselocksmith.com/\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\"><img alt=\"Locksmith\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a0147e1dbad71970b022ad3adea7a200d img-responsive\" src=\"https://chriswdesigns.typepad.com/.a/6a0147e1dbad71970b022ad3adea7a200d-500wi\" style=\"display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"Locksmith\" /></a></p>\r\n<h4><strong>Leaving</strong></h4>\r\n<p>So I left partly due to the fees I was paying, both for the apps and the <a href=\"https://www.shopify.com/?ref=chrisw-designs\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">Shopify</a> subscription and transaction fees. You can reduce their transaction fees if you use their payment processor so do check that out and take it into consideration if you are thinking of going with them. BUT that&#39;s not the only reason I left. In fact the main reason I left was because <a href=\"https://www.shopify.com/?ref=chrisw-designs\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">Shopify</a> currently at the time of my writing this, did not offer a good way of delivering videos. IMHO! I wanted something better because I am planing do do a lot more things with video. Its the direction I am taking so I needed to find something better.</p>\r\n<p>Its a LONG story to get where I am now LOL so I won&#39;t bore you with the details but suffice to say I didn&#39;t intend on having to use two platforms to make up my website. It just evolved that way due to lack of certain features (Shopping cart related) in the video delivery platform I am using, yet I still wanted to use it because of the video delivery features themselves, so I needed to combine that with a website with separate shopping cart. I &#39;could&#39; have simply retained <a href=\"https://www.shopify.com/?ref=chrisw-designs\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">Shopify</a> and integrated the new platform to my website in the same way I have now BUT then I would have retained the Shopify fees. Given that the new video delivery platform is expensive on its own....even more than the total I was paying for Shopify with all the extra app fees, I needed to look at other options.</p>\r\n<h4><strong>Decisions</strong></h4>\r\n<p>After MUCH research and umming and ahhhing I decided to go with <a href=\"https://wordpress.org/\">Wordpress</a> + <a href=\"https://woocommerce.com/\">Woocommerce</a>. These are technically Opensource and hence do not have fees BUT do bear in mind that sometimes you may want to add more functionality to your website which may require you to purchase a plugin. Usually that is a one off fee....or a yearly fee if you want tech support and upgrades to be ongoing......which you usually do!</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"https://wordpress.org/\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\"><img alt=\"WordPress-logotype-standard\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a0147e1dbad71970b022ad3cd7f0b200b img-responsive\" height=\"96\" src=\"https://chriswdesigns.typepad.com/.a/6a0147e1dbad71970b022ad387d0bc200c-pi\" style=\"display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"WordPress-logotype-standard\" width=\"467\" /></a></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\">+</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"https://woocommerce.com/\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\"><br /><img alt=\"Logo-woocommerce@2x\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a0147e1dbad71970b022ad3adeb0f200d img-responsive\" src=\"https://chriswdesigns.typepad.com/.a/6a0147e1dbad71970b022ad3adeb0f200d-400wi\" style=\"width: 360px; display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"Logo-woocommerce@2x\" /></a><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"https://chriswdesigns.typepad.com/.a/6a0147e1dbad71970b022ad3cd7f0b200b-pi\"><br /></a></p>\r\n<h4><strong>Having said that....</strong></h4>\r\n<p>There are some websites around that offer you a membership to access all of the well known plugins, with updates, for a one off fee. These websites claim to be 100% legit and to be honest they sound as though they are and all the ones I&#39;ve come across appear to make a similar claim to this &quot;<em>All WordPress items such as plugins and themes are licensed under the General Public Licence (GPL). This means that once we have purchased the item we are free to redistribute it if we choose to do so. Your membership to our site goes towards maintaining and buying the subscriptions to 3rd party theme and plugin authors. This form of crowd funding helps keep prices low and we can then pass this benefit on to you.</em>&quot; However my legal knowledge is minimal and whether or not you choose to use one of these services is something you may or may not wish to seek legal advice on.</p>\r\n<h4><strong>Do I like Wordpress + Woocommerce</strong></h4>\r\n<p>Yes, I am very happy with it so far. I like that it has virtually NO limits. If you have something in mind that you would like to do, you can usually find a plugin to expand your site to do it AND a lot of the plugins are free too.&#0160; You CAN sell/deliver digital downloads with Woocommerce BUT I currently have mine delivering on the same platform as my videos because I want the ability to add extras such as little videos, pattern hacks or helpful tips to the sale of my PDF&#39;s and this makes it easy to do so! Admittedly I am still tweaking the system to make it easier for users to use the new platform! Patience please! I&#39;ll get there! LOL</p>\r\n<h4><strong>Hosting</strong></h4>\r\n<p>Now when you have a Wordpress website you do need hosting so bear in mind this is an additional cost. Now here I would like to mention there IS a HUGE difference between Wordpress.com and Wordpress.org so please don&#39;t confuse the two and do your research to make sure you know the differences so you get the right one for YOU! I found a good website which compares the differences is wpbeginner.com and you can find their comparison <a href=\"https://www.wpbeginner.com/beginners-guide/self-hosted-wordpress-org-vs-free-wordpress-com-infograph/\">HERE</a>.</p>\r\n<p>I personally opted for setting up a Self Hosted website (Wordpress.org) because of all the freedom and control I have with a self hosted Wordpress website. Originally I chose to use GoDaddy for my hosting because it is currently housing my Domain names however during setup I had a number of technical hitches which led me to find out GoDaddy&#39;s tech support is BOTTOM of the barrel! And I mean if you think you will ever need tech support....and most of us semi website gurus do....FORGET GoDaddy! GAH!</p>\r\n<h4><strong>Back to the Drawing Board</strong></h4>\r\n<p>A whole lot more research later I landed on<a href=\"https://www.siteground.com/index.htm?afcode=ecf1d9083250e60843116ef86e198233&amp;campaign=Textlink\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\"> Siteground</a> <em>(all references to <a href=\"https://www.siteground.com/index.htm?afcode=ecf1d9083250e60843116ef86e198233&amp;campaign=Textlink\">Siteground</a> contain an affiliate link)</em> and this is where I currently have my website hosted. MAN I cannot say enough about this hosting! Their tech support is the BEST I have EVER come across in all my years of being online and running websites etc...I&#39;ve tried a number of different hosting companies over the years and NEVER have I seen tech support as good as theirs! Trust me in that I don&#39;t say that lightly!!!</p>\r\n<p>I purchased their middle &quot;GrowBig&quot; plan <em>(and was able to pay in my home currency)</em> and was able to secure a really great discount by paying for it several years in advance. You can of course, pay monthly if you wish but then the fees will be higher. If you know you will be sticking around for the long term, its worth thinking about paying for a longer term. Also the middle plan came with free website migration as well as automatic daily backups and SSL included. I liked the idea of having all of these! I had already completed most of my setup by this time and it was just soooo easy to let them move it over for me! I&#39;m lazy! LOL I paid another A$24 to have their SiteScanner for a year which scans for Malware and offers another level of protection for the website.</p>\r\n<p>This is my shameless plug affiliate link banner if you want to check them out!</p>\r\n<p><a href=\"https://www.siteground.com/web-hosting.htm?afbannercode=43795c80ad6d99d8fe1d57d4fe9b77a0\"><img alt=\"Web Hosting\" border=\"0\" height=\"60\" src=\"https://ua.siteground.com/img/banners/general/static/468x60.jpg\" style=\"display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" width=\"468\" /></a></p>\r\n<h4><strong>Domain Names</strong></h4>\r\n<p>Now you will also need a domain name for a Wordpress.org website and maybe you have that already? If not, I recommend getting one with whichever host you choose to use. It just makes setting up a lot easier if they are also supplying you with the domain name. Mind you, <a href=\"https://www.siteground.com/index.htm?afcode=ecf1d9083250e60843116ef86e198233&amp;campaign=Textlink\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">Sitegrounds</a> tech support is so good, they will help you get any current domain name you have, pointing in the right direction!</p>\r\n<h4><strong>Themes</strong></h4>\r\n<p>You can use a free one....and there are a number of free ones around however as with anything free, you will find they are more basic and devoid of a lot of features BUT for a first website, it may not be a bad place to start with and have a play. I personally looked around for a paid one. I looked on Etsy because my thoughts were Etsy is aimed at the creative industry so it would be a good place to find a theme suitable for my needs. I wanted something that not only looks great BUT is responsive (Meaning its display adjusts to suit whatever device it is being viewed on such as a computer or a phone.) as well as being laid out in a look and feel suitable for what I am selling.</p>\r\n<p>I opted for <a href=\"https://17thavenuedesigns.com/\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">17th Avenue Designs</a> because her designs appealed to me <em>(If you choose one of hers, please pick a different one than me! LOL)</em> BUT I ended up buying directly from her website rather than off Etsy. I like to do that where possible because I know sellers get slugged a lot with fees on Etsy. Am I happy? Yes I LOVE the theme. She has a lot of support on her website for helping with setup. I did find personal support was a bit lacking though to be honest. Mind you, Etsy feedback was quite good in that department so perhaps I was just catching her at a bad time.</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"https://17thavenuedesigns.com/\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\"><img alt=\"17th Avenue\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a0147e1dbad71970b022ad387c839200c img-responsive\" src=\"https://chriswdesigns.typepad.com/.a/6a0147e1dbad71970b022ad387cc17200c-pi\" style=\"width: 800px; display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"17th Avenue\" /></a></p>\r\n<h4><strong>Inclusions</strong></h4>\r\n<p>With Wordpress, many people use the platform for their blogs so themes are often only for a Blog OR may include templates for both a blog layout and a website layout AND also be WooCommerce compatible. However some don&#39;t have everything included so if you want your website to look different to your blog in layout and you want to add WooCommerce, then make sure your theme includes all the options you need. In case you are wondering here, I use <a href=\"https://www.typepad.com/\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">Typepad</a> for <a href=\"http://blog.chriswdesigns.com/\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">my blog</a> but I can say if I could choose over I would go with Wordpress for my blog too. ONE day when I have time I will look at moving <a href=\"http://blog.chriswdesigns.com/\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">my blog</a> BUT I haven&#39;t got time for that right now so I have it setup to blend in as best I can for now.</p>\r\n<h4><strong>What don&#39;t I like about Wordpress + Woocommerce?</strong></h4>\r\n<p>Well there is not much I don&#39;t like except that you do need to login to your control panel and update plugins on a regular basis but for me I don&#39;t feel very bothered by that. I like to feel in control of my websites. <a href=\"https://www.shopify.com/?ref=chrisw-designs\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">Shopify</a> is really more set and forget in this department. Wordpress + Woocommerce is IMHO more suited to someone with some website experience or at least someone who is not fearful of diving in and learning. There are Facebook groups dedicated to Wordpress and I found if I didn&#39;t know how to do something, a quick session on google and bob is your uncle LOL!</p>\r\n<h4><strong>My Aussie Website</strong></h4>\r\n<p>For my Aussie Website I am using Wordpress + <a href=\"https://www.ecwid.com/\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">Ecwid</a>. I had my Aussie website with Wix BUT that wasn&#39;t cheap so I decided to move and make my two websites with Wordpress using the same theme BUT with different colours, so they pair together somewhat.</p>\r\n<p>The reason I stayed with Ecwid for my shopping cart is one of laziness (Lack of time) to move and setup all my products and shipping on Woocommerce. for now I will just stay with it as I have it.....if by some small miracle I find time to spare, I will setup WooCommerce too and save the monthly Ecwid fee. Mind you, having said that, Ecwid is easy to use and easy to embed in any existing website so if you already have a website and just want to add a shopping cart, it may be worth your while to check it out!</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"https://www.ecwid.com/\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\"><img alt=\"Ecwid\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a0147e1dbad71970b022ad387d80c200c img-responsive\" src=\"https://chriswdesigns.typepad.com/.a/6a0147e1dbad71970b022ad387d80c200c-800wi\" style=\"display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"Ecwid\" /></a></p>\r\n<h4><strong>Conclusion</strong></h4>\r\n<p>What should you choose? Bear in mind when making the decision that <a href=\"https://www.shopify.com/?ref=chrisw-designs\">Shopify</a> is MUCH easier to use if you are not web savvy. Wordpress + WooCommerce is a learning curve BUT if you aren&#39;t frightened of the technical site of things, it may be your cheapest and most expandable option.</p>\r\n<p>Well I hope this has given you a little insight into the wonderful world of websites and how I do it. I would be interested to hear if you enjoyed this post or if you would like me to talk about website related things more often? Let me know in the comments below if that is the case and what it is that YOU would like to know more about!</p>\r\n<p>Please subscribe to my <a href=\"https://www.youtube.com/ChrisWDesigns\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\" title=\"Christine on YouTube\">YouTube channel</a>...and ring the bell to be notified when I add new videos.

And so I picked 12! Here&#39;s how it will work: for each month of 2019 I will challenge myself to do a healthy habit every day, and each month will have a different habit challenge. The habits aren&#39;t cumulative so when the month is done I can stop doing pushups, stop tracking my food, whatever. I&#39;ll only focus only on the current month&#39;s challenge.</p>\r\n<p>In coming up with the 12 different ideas I wanted to pick challenges that were do-able enough that I wouldn&#39;t dread it each day (which could be a recipe for failure) but significant enough that keeping it up for a month would feel like an accomplishment. Some of the challenges I&#39;m giving myself are things I already do <em>sometimes</em> but nothing that I do every day. As I was assigning the challenges I tried to think about when we have travel scheduled, when holidays are, etc. The challenge of 10 pushups/day was one of the first challenges I thought of and I knew it would be a little hard so I&#39;m getting it over with in January (and have done them every day so far!). You&#39;ll notice that &quot;no added sugar&quot; falls on the shortest month of the year (although also a month with a sugar-coated holiday). I let December take &quot;eat veggies at least twice/day&quot; because that&#39;s a month when I could use reminding to eat food groups other than Candy Cane Joe Joe&#39;s.</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"https://risingshining.typepad.com/.a/6a0148c76d1d48970c022ad3af54eb200d-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\"><img alt=\"12 healthy habits challenge in 2019 | RISING*SHINING\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a0148c76d1d48970c022ad3af54eb200d img-responsive\" src=\"https://risingshining.typepad.com/.a/6a0148c76d1d48970c022ad3af54eb200d-450wi\" style=\"width: 450px; display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"12 healthy habits challenge in 2019 | RISING*SHINING\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>To keep track of my progress I&#39;m using a daily goal tracker from <a href=\"https://www.elisejoy.com/\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">Elise</a>. For each day that I complete the daily habit I fill in the date circle with highlighter. It&#39;s surprisingly satisfying and motivating to fill in that tiny circle. As I did when I used the tracker to get into the habit of <a href=\"https://www.risingshining.com/2016/03/committing-to-daily-sunscreen.html\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">wearing sunscreen every day</a>, I&#39;m keeping the goal tracker on the back of our medicine cabinet door in our bathroom using magnets. I keep a highlighter in the medicine cabinet too so that it&#39;s easy to fill in the circles. I made a slight modification to my goal tracker this year using Photoshop by adding the first letter of each month. This lets me easily see when different months start at a glance. I love the system: it&#39;s tucked away but convenient and I love tangibly filling in a circle to track my progress.</p>\r\n<p>Here&#39;s what I have planned for the year...</p>\r\n<p><strong>January: 10 pushups/day.</strong> The pushups have to be all on my toes (no knees) and done outside of any workout I&#39;m already doing. So for example if doing a set of 10 pushups is part of my morning Orange Theory workout those don&#39;t count. The idea of the challenge is to do something extra that I&#39;m not already doing. However what I have been doing is completing a set of 10 pushups right after my Orange Theory class. That way I&#39;m already in workout mode and I&#39;m done with them for the day before I even really get my day started.</p>\r\n<p><strong>February: no added sugar.</strong> Foods with naturally occurring sugars, fruits and plain yogurt for example, are okay. I think this one will be hard! Not so much because I&#39;ll crave the sugar but because sugar is added to everything. I need to prepare for this one by making a list of foods I usually eat to see what I need to eliminate or modify on this challenge.</p>\r\n<p><strong>March: 9 p.m. bedtime.</strong> I think this will be a really challenging one. Sometimes I go to bed by 9 p.m. but often it&#39;s closer to 9:30 or 10 p.m. I will have a couple exceptions to the challenge during the month. My Monday night High Fitness classes get out at 9 p.m. so those nights will be later and I&#39;m okay making that exception. Chris and I also have tickets to a concert so we&#39;ll be up later that night. But other than planned exceptions it&#39;s lights out at 9 p.m.! To do this I need to be in bed reading with teeth brushed and face washed by 8:30 p.m. so that I can read for 30 minutes before trying to fall asleep. That will be hard but hopefully those good nights of sleep will motivate me.</p>\r\n<p><strong>April: track food every day.</strong> I&#39;ll use <a href=\"https://www.myfitnesspal.com/\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">My Fitness Pal</a> for this and already do occasionally go on streaks of tracking my food daily. However, I usually stop because of the added work of entering everything I eat. Homemade recipes are especially annoying to enter although creating a new recipe to log in the app isn&#39;t that hard. I do notice that when I track my food I eat healthier and smaller portion sizes (and still feel full and satisfied after a meal).</p>\r\n<p><strong>May: don&#39;t eat after 7:30 p.m. </strong>This challenge will be interesting. Although I&#39;m not much of a post-dinner snacker I can get into a routine where I want something sweet every day after dinner. I&#39;ve read that food consumed after dinner tends to be higher in sugar and lower in nutritional value (ice cream? brownies? check) so this challenge is about filling up on healthy food at dinner and being done for the night. Something that helps me do this is to floss and brush right after dinner. The minty taste signifies to my stomach and brain that we&#39;re done and I loathe the thought of brushing my teeth twice.</p>\r\n<p><strong>June: 10 minute stretch/day.</strong> I&#39;m looking forward to this one! I love to stretch and use my <a href=\"https://amzn.to/2VJXksx\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">foam roller</a>, especially right before bed, although I don&#39;t do it often. I&#39;ll plan to set my phone with a 10 minute timer and stretch for that duration every day. I think this would be a good one to do with the boys sometimes.</p>\r\n<p><strong>July: no caffeine or alcohol.</strong> I&#39;m really curious to see how easy or challenging this is. Already I don&#39;t drink much alcohol: I&#39;ll have beer if Chris and I go out somewhere and occasionally at home we&#39;ll split a beer or I&#39;ll have a small glass of wine. But there are also occasions where I pass up having a drink even if other people are drinking. No caffeine will be interesting. Lately I sometimes don&#39;t have tea or coffee in the morning so I&#39;m not feeling chained to a morning caffeine intake (but maybe that&#39;s optimistic!) but I might have returned to daily tea or coffee by June. I probably should make note of my caffeine intake in mid-May so I can wean myself off if needed by June 1. I do really enjoy having a hot beverage in the morning and am on the hunt for a delicious decaf morning tea. I&#39;d prefer something minty or cinnamony.</p>\r\n<p><strong>August: 20 lunges/day.</strong>This one doesn&#39;t intimidate me but it could surprise me! What might be hard about this one is being sore from doing lunges every day, especially if we have heavy leg workouts in Orange Theory or High Fitness.</p>\r\n<p><strong>September: 1 minute plank/day.</strong>I don&#39;t do planks regularly so I&#39;m not exactly sure how challenging a one minute plank will be. If it&#39;s easy peasy I&#39;ll up it to a minute and a half, and I might give myself the challenge of trying to be at a 2 minute (or more??) plank by the end of the month.</p>\r\n<p><strong>October: daily walk outside.</strong> This needs to be at least a 15 minute walk outside. I scheduled this for October because it will still be hot and I start feeling cooped up and grouchy this time of year. I&#39;m hoping that getting outside, probably in the early morning or in the evenings, will help. And by the end of the month the mornings and evenings should start cooling off a bit.</p>\r\n<p><strong>November: 20 sit ups/day.</strong> The month of pie and the start of the holidays felt like a good time for sit ups. I&#39;m going to say that this can be any kind of sit up, as long as I do a set of 20. My favorite sit ups are <a href=\"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j-jOwapHaa0\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">sprinter sit ups</a> so some days I&#39;ll do those. Other days might be <a href=\"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wp4BlxcFTkE\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">leg raises</a>, <a href=\"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9FGilxCbdz8\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">bicycle cruches</a>, or <a href=\"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1fbU_MkV7NE\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">regular sit ups</a>.</p>\r\n<p><strong>December: eat veggies at least twice/day.</strong> I think I do an okay job of eating vegetables but some days can go by when I have little to none. I&#39;m hoping this challenge will help me think of easy ways to incorporate more vegetables into my diet. Counting servings felt a little complicated since vegetables vary in what counts as a serving. So instead I just need to make sure that I eat vegetables at least two times per day in a reasonable amount; having one carrot stick doesn&#39;t count. Two tactics that will help would be eating salads for lunch (especially convenient would be a portion of a bag salad kit from Trader Joe&#39;s) and having frozen veggies on hand. I love the <a href=\"https://www.popsugar.com/fitness/photo-gallery/43912445/image/43912446/Soycutash\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">frozen soycutash mix from Trader Joe&#39;s</a> that has edamame, corn, and some red pepper. I will happily eat that warmed up with some Earth Balance, salt, and pepper. I&#39;ve even eaten it for breakfast on occasion!</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>We&#39;re several days into January and I&#39;ve been doing my pushups every day! Doing 10 pushups isn&#39;t dreadful but it is a challenge. Especially on days when I&#39;m sore from a workout. But even when I don&#39;t really want to do them I know I can be done in less than a minute and that makes it easier to just get it over with. One of the challenges is just remembering to do it! During dinner suddenly I&#39;ll say, &quot;Chris! After dinner remind me I have to do my pushups!&quot;</p>\r\n<p>Having a new challenge to do on February 1 feels fun and I&#39;m interested to see what I learn from each different challenge. I&#39;m also really looking forward to filling in all those circles.</p>\r\n<p>What monthly challenges would you do?</p>",

And so I picked 12! Here&#39;s how it will work: for each month of 2019 I will challenge myself to do a healthy habit every day, and each month will have a different habit challenge. The habits aren&#39;t cumulative so when the month is done I can stop doing pushups, stop tracking my food, whatever. I&#39;ll only focus only on the current month&#39;s challenge.</p>\r\n<p>In coming up with the 12 different ideas I wanted to pick challenges that were do-able enough that I wouldn&#39;t dread it each day (which could be a recipe for failure) but significant enough that keeping it up for a month would feel like an accomplishment. Some of the challenges I&#39;m giving myself are things I already do <em>sometimes</em> but nothing that I do every day. As I was assigning the challenges I tried to think about when we have travel scheduled, when holidays are, etc. The challenge of 10 pushups/day was one of the first challenges I thought of and I knew it would be a little hard so I&#39;m getting it over with in January (and have done them every day so far!).

         "content": "<p>I&#39;m currently looking around for a camera bag again, which is, to a photographer, the equivalent of a nasty fungus in an embarrassing place that flares up from time to time: just part of the burden of our existence. Because everyone knows two things: 1.) most bags will serve, if you&#39;ll just relax and adapt and get over it. And 2.) no bag is ever just exactly right. I don&#39;t care—shop all you want—devote your life to it—you&#39;ll never find it. It&#39;s not out there.</p>\r\n<p>That&#39;s the whole gestalt with camera bags.</p>\r\n<p>What I&#39;m looking for at the moment is a small shoulder bag that can hold my <a href=\"https://camerasize.com/compact/#725.626,682.286,ha,t\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">medium-sized</a> <a href=\"https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1367104-REG/panasonic_dc_g9kbody_lumix_dc_g9_mirrorless_micro.html/BI/2144/KBID/2882\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">Panasonic G9</a> with its <a href=\"https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1304868-REG/panasonic_h_hsa12035_lumix_g_x_vario.html/BI/2144/KBID/2882\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">12–35mm ƒ/2.8</a> lens, with enough room left over for the <a href=\"https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1304869-REG/panasonic_h_hsa35100_lumix_g_x_vario.html/BI/2144/KBID/2882\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">35–100mm ƒ/2.8</a> lens I hope to buy next year.</p>\r\n<p>I hate shopping for camera bags because there&#39;s too much choice. It&#39;s overwhelming. There are oceans of the things—single brands offer, sometimes, dozens and dozens of models, and even forums of photo fans working together can&#39;t name all the brands. We could try for a week to compile a list of all the camera bag makers and three weeks from now we&#39;d still be getting comments from passers-by saying &quot;you forgot [blank].&quot;</p>\r\n<p>As a way of bringing this all under some semblance of control, I tend to look only at what I call the &quot;T bags&quot;—Tenba and Tamrac. They&#39;re two big-name, good-selling, sensible mainstream brands that I&#39;ve had good luck with in the past. My bigger bag is a Tenba, and I really like it.</p>\r\n<p>Of course they don&#39;t make it any more.

I want it to be the right size. It&#39;s easy to buy a bag that&#39;s too big, but I already have a big bag (that I use when traveling to see my girlfriend in the Finger Lakes—in other words, it&#39;s in the basement and dusty now), and I don&#39;t want to use a big bag with just the little camera knocking about inside it. I want a detachable strap, so I can substitute one of my favorite UpStraps if I want to (they don&#39;t slip off my shoulder; everything else slips off my shoulder). I want a bag that does not have too many dang compartments all over everywhere; I&#39;ve seriously had camera bags in which I can lose things because there are 39 compartments and pouches and pockets hidden everywhere. I&#39;ll stick a card in a little top-secret zippered slit hidden in the bag somewhere and never see the damn thing again. I prefer a flap I can leave closed but unfastened, such that I can access the camera quickly while still giving the innards of the bag protection from, say, drizzle. I want to be able to situate the camera with its handgrip facing up, so I can grab it easily (and I absolutely don&#39;t want to have to separate the body and lens to stow the camera away).</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"https://theonlinephotographer.typepad.com/.a/6a00df351e888f8834022ad3afabd0200d-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Tamrac\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00df351e888f8834022ad3afabd0200d image-full img-responsive\" src=\"https://theonlinephotographer.typepad.com/.a/6a00df351e888f8834022ad3afabd0200d-800wi\" title=\"Tamrac\" /></a></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 10pt;\">A camera positioned in a bag with its handgrip facing up, the<br />way I like it.

(Derechoe?)</span></p>\r\n<p>And one more thing—I know this is a bit of a conception problem, but I really don&#39;t like the idea of a bag that needs a bag. Yes, I know <em>logically</em> that, in a downpour out in the woods, even a rain-resistant bag might need to be wrapped up in something else to prevent water from finding its way in, but, sorry, I really have an aversion to bags that need &quot;rain covers.&quot; It&#39;s like when I buy a bag of Yukon Golds at the supermarket—nothing else, just a bag of potatoes—and the checkout clerk says, &quot;Would you like a bag for that?&quot; I always want to reply, &quot;they&#39;re already in a bag.&quot; I never do, because I know they&#39;re just doing their job, but why would I need to take fourteen potatoes that are in a plastic bag and put them in another plastic bag? And if that makes sense, why not put the bagged bag in another bag? Because they&#39;re heavy, so they might need to be double-bagged. In which case they&#39;d really be triple-bagged. I&#39;ll stop now.</p>\r\n<p>I know that LowePro is another big mainstream brand that makes sensibly priced products, and deserves to be grouped with the T-bags. But I tend to have one problem with Lowepro, which is that they slather their name too prominently on their bags:</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"https://theonlinephotographer.typepad.com/.a/6a00df351e888f8834022ad3af3109200d-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Lowepro\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00df351e888f8834022ad3af3109200d image-full img-responsive\" src=\"https://theonlinephotographer.typepad.com/.a/6a00df351e888f8834022ad3af3109200d-800wi\" title=\"Lowepro\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>This is the <a href=\"https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1395795-REG/lowepro_lp37161_m_trekker_sh150_shoulder_bag.html/BI/2144/KBID/2882\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">Lowepro m-Trekker SH150</a> shoulder bag, and I suspect it meets all my requirements as listed above...but there&#39;s that problem. I don&#39;t care to sashay down the boulevard proudly declaring my affiliations to every curious glance. I don&#39;t like wearing brand names on my body. It makes me feel like a peasant, a vassal to my corporatist overlords who live in the big castle up on top of the hill. I sort of make a personal policy of not doing it.</p>\r\n<p>And except for my Bears cap, which I bought when the owner of the Chicago Bears invited me to be his guest at a Bears game, I don&#39;t even wear stuff that proclaims my sports allegiances. Although that&#39;s probably partly because there are no Ronnie O&#39;Sullivan caps or Ronnie O&#39;Sullivan T-shirts or jerseys. At least I don&#39;t think there are.</p>\r\n<p>And, with all due apologies to the good folks at Lowepro, &quot;Lowepro&quot; is just not a name that has resonance, provenance, and romance to the average Joe Sixpack and Jill Boxed-White-Wine on the street. It&#39;s not like &quot;Ferrari&quot; on a car or &quot;Gucci&quot; on a woman&#39;s handbag. I don&#39;t think it does my status any good to have my plain cordura bag brashly proclaim, &quot;<em>I&#39;m</em> the type of fellow who uses <em>Lowepro!</em> Smell <em>me!&quot; </em>Nor do I think others out in the world will be quietly thinking as I pass, <em>ooh, Lowepro. That guy&#39;s cool.</em></p>\r\n<p>No offense. <em>They</em> think they&#39;re all that—that&#39;s why they blazon &quot;Lowepro&quot; on the face of the flap so prominently like they do, like it&#39;s Armani or Ralph Lauren—but no one else does. I doubt anyone but photographers who have made themselves cranky shopping for camera bags would even know what Lowepro is or what they do or who they are.</p>\r\n<p>And while I&#39;m griping, a minor peeve: Panasonic really ought to give up on &quot;Lumix,&quot; too. It was supposed to be the brand name, like Pentax was originally the brand name for Asahi&#39;s SLRs and is now the brand name for Ricoh&#39;s DSLRs. Nice idea...I guess. Would have been nice if it worked out. But you know what, Panasonic? <em>It didn&#39;t take</em>. Would have been nice if it did, maybe, but it just didn&#39;t. Everybody calls your cameras &quot;Panasonics.&quot; Time for you to deep-six &quot;Lumix&quot; and move on. We like you; you should like yourself. Use your own name like everybody else does. While everyone else calls Panasonics Panasonics, Panasonic grimly hangs on to &quot;Lumix&quot; like <a href=\"https://youtu.be/e4q6eaLn2mY\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">a procession of leper monks</a> in the time of the plague. Poor perished horse done been beat long enough now.</p>\r\n<p>But while I can put a little piece of electrical tape over the shouty &quot;Lumix&quot; on my G9, apparently I am going to have to go out and about shouting <em>&quot;LOWEPRO!!&quot;</em> to passers-by, as if it were precious to my self-identity, which I assure you it is not.</p>\r\n<p>Because the <a href=\"https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1395795-REG/lowepro_lp37161_m_trekker_sh150_shoulder_bag.html/BI/2144/KBID/2882\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">m-Trekker SH150</a> would be probably be about perfect for me, except for that one imperfect thing. Which means that it&#39;s like every other camera bag: good, yet just not quite right.</p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: right;\"><em>Mike</em></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-size: 10px;\">Original contents copyright 2018 by Michael C.

Every professional, working photographer I&#39;ve ever met has at least one of Think Tank&#39;s fabulous rolling cases [<em><a href=\"https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1269748-REG/think_tank_photo_563_airport_international_v3_0_carry.html/BI/2144/KBID/2882\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">link</a>&#0160; —Ed</em>.] because they are so well made, reliable and well designed; and the Think Tank backpack I bought recently made carrying on gear to 26 flights in six weeks, including an international flight, a much better experience. It. is. <em>PERFECT</em>.&quot;</p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 40px;\"><strong>Mike replies</strong>: <em>But Kirk</em>...you&#39;re <em>a cool hipster! I meant it as a good thing, not a bad thing. Isn&#39;t hipster sort of part of the job definition for most pros? I worked for a studio pro in the &#39;80s whose style was decidedly, recognizably &#39;70s, and he didn&#39;t last much longer—retired to his 90-foot sailboat. Woe betide the pro without his or her finger on the pulse of the latest styles and fashions, or am I wrong?</em></p>\r\n<p><strong>dogman</strong>: &quot;When you buy the Lowepro bag, get it in black and also buy a black Sanford Sharpie pen. Immediately sit down with the Sharpie and carefully cover that offensive logo. It will still be there but now it will only whisper &#39;lowepro&#39; instead of scream &#39;LOWEPRO.&#39;&quot;</p>\r\n<p><strong>K Williams</strong>: &quot;I&#39;ll make a suggestion from the Cool Hipster brands, a <a href=\"https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1340543-REG/think_tank_photo_461_turnstyle_10_v2_0_convertible.html/BI/2144/KBID/2882\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">Think Tank TurnStyle 10</a> (or maybe 5). This is my favorite camera bag by far and like many I have had quite a few. This one is the only one that really stands out from the crowd. You will forget you are carrying it after a short while. Very comfortable. Not too big. Just two moveable dividers inside. Very easy to get to your gear also and to change lenses inside the bag. Will hold a G9 with 12–35mm and 35–100mm with a little room to spare. The TurnStyle 5 may be able to hold that also but I don&#39;t have one. No flap and it comes with a bag to put over the bag in case of heavy rain, but I&#39;ve never had to use it.&quot;</p>\r\n<p><strong>Hugh</strong>: &quot;Have a look at the <a href=\"https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/131472-REG/Billingham_501733_L2_Bag_Khaki_with.html/BI/2144/KBID/2882\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">Billingham L2</a>. I think it’s the perfect small bag....&quot;</p>\r\n<p><strong>Ricardo Silva Cordeiro</strong>: &quot;I was on the same page as you last month, shopping for a new medium-sized messenger camera bag that would replace my previous good-looking but cheaply made one (which started to fell apart after 1.5 years; come to think of it not bad actually for something with a daily use that cost me 35 bucks). I was investigating online and was still torn between a good but super expensive one and another good-looking but cheap one. But then I was just walking trough a store and saw &#39;the one&#39;: a <a href=\"https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1332302-REG/manfrotto_mb_mn_m_sd_10_manfrotto_lifestyle_manhattan_speedy_10.html/BI/2144/KBID/2882\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">Manfrotto Manhattan Speedy 10</a>. It has everything I wanted, elegant and discreet, perfect size, lightweight, good materials and rain-proof, good access to gear and enough pouches/organization. It even is possible to carry a small tripod with some straps on the base. Also the price is right in the middle compared to the other ones I was deciding, one more factor that made me look at it as the &#39;goldilocks option&#39; for me. Here&#39;s two good videos on it, it&#39;s not like checking it in person, but close enough: [<a href=\"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2S0QhZCOx3I\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">one</a>, <a href=\"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TrOMGurhV7Q\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">two</a>] both from Manfrotto.&quot;&#0160;&#0160;</p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 40px;\"><strong>Mike replies</strong>: <em>Manfrotto recently acquired the Kata bag brand, which as far as I know were made in Israel. Although the Kata brand name was retired, Manfrotto promised that Kata&#39;s DNA would find its way into Manfrotto products. I wonder if the Manhattan Speedy 10 was previously a Kata model? I don&#39;t know the product lines well enough to guess.</em></p>\r\n<p><strong>Mike Plews</strong>: &quot;I have a Tenba bag that I bought in 1983 that is still soldiering on but is way too big for a walk-around. Being incredibly cheap I popped for the Amazon Basics bag you featured. It easily swallowed a Nikon D7100 with a grip, an 18–70mm Nikkor, a 70–210mm ƒ/4 AF Nikkor (the old design) and an SB600 flash. May be swapping out the flash for an 11–16mm Tokina shortly and I expect it to fit just fine.</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"https://theonlinephotographer.typepad.com/.a/6a00df351e888f8834022ad3d0204c200b-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Plews\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00df351e888f8834022ad3d0204c200b image-full img-responsive\" src=\"https://theonlinephotographer.typepad.com/.a/6a00df351e888f8834022ad3d0204c200b-800wi\" title=\"Plews\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>&quot;Will this bag last 30 years? I&#39;m 69 and I doubt I&#39;ll find out. For the money it is terrific, maybe perfect for my needs. Your mileage may vary.&quot;</p>\r\n<p><strong>Pierre Charbonneau</strong>: &quot;The bag I have been using for all my errands and travel since 10 years+ is an <a href=\"https://amzn.to/2TTInlT\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">Artisan &amp; Artist ACAM-7100</a>. A Leica M and two lenses do fit very well. The bag is discreet, very light and well padded and cost dearly. It wears very slowly, considering the daily use. I may have never to replace it, which sweetens the initial price.&quot;</p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 40px;\"><strong>Mike replies</strong>: <em>That&#39;s a great bag, but I fear it would be just a touch small for my equipment. I think it was made especially for a Leica if the name at the link is any indication! </em></p>\r\n<p><strong>Yanchik</strong>: &quot;Greg Lowe and his brother were cutting-edge US alpinists in their time. And that time was one when climbing gear was rare and poor. So one or the other or both (I forget) set up Lowe Alpine, with LowePro as a brand extension. To me, a mild alpinist, having seen Greg speak while struggling horribly with Alzheimer’s towards what is surely the end of his life, these guys are the real deal—I suspect I am not alone amongst a demographic of climbers. My reply intended as an informative broadening of your horizons, rather than a rebuke. Stick it to da man by all means, but dis is not, I think, da man.&quot;</p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 40px;\"><strong>Mike replies</strong>: <em>Thank you for the background. I did not mean to disparage the founders; however I think &quot;Lowe Alpine&quot; is a much cooler name. The word &quot;pro&quot; just reeks of cheap and by-rote to me. Not their fault, I know.<br /></em></p>",

Because everyone knows two things: 1.) most bags will serve, if you&#39;ll just relax and adapt and get over it. And 2.) no bag is ever just exactly right. I don&#39;t care—shop all you want—devote your life to it—you&#39;ll never find it. It&#39;s not out there.</p>\r\n<p>That&#39;s the whole gestalt with camera bags.</p>\r\n<p>What I&#39;m looking for at the moment is a small shoulder bag that can hold my <a href=\"https://camerasize.com/compact/#725.626,682.286,ha,t\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">medium-sized</a> <a href=\"https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1367104-REG/panasonic_dc_g9kbody_lumix_dc_g9_mirrorless_micro.html/BI/2144/KBID/2882\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">Panasonic G9</a> with its <a href=\"https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1304868-REG/panasonic_h_hsa12035_lumix_g_x_vario.html/BI/2144/KBID/2882\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">12–35mm ƒ/2.8</a> lens, with enough room left over for the <a href=\"https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1304869-REG/panasonic_h_hsa35100_lumix_g_x_vario.html/BI/2144/KBID/2882\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">35–100mm ƒ/2.8</a> lens I hope to buy next year.</p>\r\n<p>I hate shopping for camera bags because there&#39;s too much choice. It&#39;s overwhelming. There are oceans of the things—single brands offer, sometimes, dozens and dozens of models, and even forums of photo fans working together can&#39;t name all the brands. We could try for a week to compile a list of all the camera bag makers and three weeks from now we&#39;d still be getting comments from passers-by saying &quot;you forgot [blank].&quot;</p>\r\n<p>As a way of bringing this all under some semblance of control, I tend to look only at what I call the &quot;T bags&quot;—Tenba and Tamrac. They&#39;re two big-name, good-selling, sensible mainstream brands that I&#39;ve had good luck with in the past. My bigger bag is a Tenba, and I really like it.</p>\r\n<p>Of course they don&#39;t make it any more.

I want it to be the right size. It&#39;s easy to buy a bag that&#39;s too big, but I already have a big bag (that I use when traveling to see my girlfriend in the Finger Lakes—in other words, it&#39;s in the basement and dusty now), and I don&#39;t want to use a big bag with just the little camera knocking about inside it. I want a detachable strap, so I can substitute one of my favorite UpStraps if I want to (they don&#39;t slip off my shoulder; everything else slips off my shoulder). I want a bag that does not have too many dang compartments all over everywhere; I&#39;ve seriously had camera bags in which I can lose things because there are 39 compartments and pouches and pockets hidden everywhere. I&#39;ll stick a card in a little top-secret zippered slit hidden in the bag somewhere and never see the damn thing again. I prefer a flap I can leave closed but unfastened, such that I can access the camera quickly while still giving the innards of the bag protection from, say, drizzle. I want to be able to situate the camera with its handgrip facing up, so I can grab it easily (and I absolutely don&#39;t want to have to separate the body and lens to stow the camera away).</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"https://theonlinephotographer.typepad.com/.a/6a00df351e888f8834022ad3afabd0200d-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Tamrac\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00df351e888f8834022ad3afabd0200d image-full img-responsive\" src=\"https://theonlinephotographer.typepad.com/.a/6a00df351e888f8834022ad3afabd0200d-800wi\" title=\"Tamrac\" /></a></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 10pt;\">A camera positioned in a bag with its handgrip facing up, the<br />way I like it.

(Derechoe?)</span></p>\r\n<p>And one more thing—I know this is a bit of a conception problem, but I really don&#39;t like the idea of a bag that needs a bag. Yes, I know <em>logically</em> that, in a downpour out in the woods, even a rain-resistant bag might need to be wrapped up in something else to prevent water from finding its way in, but, sorry, I really have an aversion to bags that need &quot;rain covers.&quot; It&#39;s like when I buy a bag of Yukon Golds at the supermarket—nothing else, just a bag of potatoes—and the checkout clerk says, &quot;Would you like a bag for that?&quot; I always want to reply, &quot;they&#39;re already in a bag.&quot; I never do, because I know they&#39;re just doing their job, but why would I need to take fourteen potatoes that are in a plastic bag and put them in another plastic bag? And if that makes sense, why not put the bagged bag in another bag? Because they&#39;re heavy, so they might need to be double-bagged. In which case they&#39;d really be triple-bagged. I&#39;ll stop now.</p>\r\n<p>I know that LowePro is another big mainstream brand that makes sensibly priced products, and deserves to be grouped with the T-bags. But I tend to have one problem with Lowepro, which is that they slather their name too prominently on their bags:</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"https://theonlinephotographer.typepad.com/.a/6a00df351e888f8834022ad3af3109200d-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Lowepro\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00df351e888f8834022ad3af3109200d image-full img-responsive\" src=\"https://theonlinephotographer.typepad.com/.a/6a00df351e888f8834022ad3af3109200d-800wi\" title=\"Lowepro\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>This is the <a href=\"https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1395795-REG/lowepro_lp37161_m_trekker_sh150_shoulder_bag.html/BI/2144/KBID/2882\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">Lowepro m-Trekker SH150</a> shoulder bag, and I suspect it meets all my requirements as listed above...but there&#39;s that problem. I don&#39;t care to sashay down the boulevard proudly declaring my affiliations to every curious glance. I don&#39;t like wearing brand names on my body. It makes me feel like a peasant, a vassal to my corporatist overlords who live in the big castle up on top of the hill. I sort of make a personal policy of not doing it.</p>\r\n<p>And except for my Bears cap, which I bought when the owner of the Chicago Bears invited me to be his guest at a Bears game, I don&#39;t even wear stuff that proclaims my sports allegiances. Although that&#39;s probably partly because there are no Ronnie O&#39;Sullivan caps or Ronnie O&#39;Sullivan T-shirts or jerseys. At least I don&#39;t think there are.</p>\r\n<p>And, with all due apologies to the good folks at Lowepro, &quot;Lowepro&quot; is just not a name that has resonance, provenance, and romance to the average Joe Sixpack and Jill Boxed-White-Wine on the street. It&#39;s not like &quot;Ferrari&quot; on a car or &quot;Gucci&quot; on a woman&#39;s handbag. I don&#39;t think it does my status any good to have my plain cordura bag brashly proclaim, &quot;<em>I&#39;m</em> the type of fellow who uses <em>Lowepro!</em> Smell <em>me!&quot; </em>Nor do I think others out in the world will be quietly thinking as I pass, <em>ooh, Lowepro. That guy&#39;s cool.</em></p>\r\n<p>No offense. <em>They</em> think they&#39;re all that—that&#39;s why they blazon &quot;Lowepro&quot; on the face of the flap so prominently like they do, like it&#39;s Armani or Ralph Lauren—but no one else does. I doubt anyone but photographers who have made themselves cranky shopping for camera bags would even know what Lowepro is or what they do or who they are.</p>\r\n<p>And while I&#39;m griping, a minor peeve: Panasonic really ought to give up on &quot;Lumix,&quot; too. It was supposed to be the brand name, like Pentax was originally the brand name for Asahi&#39;s SLRs and is now the brand name for Ricoh&#39;s DSLRs. Nice idea...I guess. Would have been nice if it worked out. But you know what, Panasonic? <em>It didn&#39;t take</em>. Would have been nice if it did, maybe, but it just didn&#39;t. Everybody calls your cameras &quot;Panasonics.&quot; Time for you to deep-six &quot;Lumix&quot; and move on. We like you; you should like yourself. Use your own name like everybody else does. While everyone else calls Panasonics Panasonics, Panasonic grimly hangs on to &quot;Lumix&quot; like <a href=\"https://youtu.be/e4q6eaLn2mY\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">a procession of leper monks</a> in the time of the plague. Poor perished horse done been beat long enough now.</p>\r\n<p>But while I can put a little piece of electrical tape over the shouty &quot;Lumix&quot; on my G9, apparently I am going to have to go out and about shouting <em>&quot;LOWEPRO!!&quot;</em> to passers-by, as if it were precious to my self-identity, which I assure you it is not.</p>\r\n<p>Because the <a href=\"https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1395795-REG/lowepro_lp37161_m_trekker_sh150_shoulder_bag.html/BI/2144/KBID/2882\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">m-Trekker SH150</a> would be probably be about perfect for me, except for that one imperfect thing. Which means that it&#39;s like every other camera bag: good, yet just not quite right.</p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: right;\"><em>Mike</em></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-size: 10px;\">Original contents copyright 2018 by Michael C.

Every professional, working photographer I&#39;ve ever met has at least one of Think Tank&#39;s fabulous rolling cases [<em><a href=\"https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1269748-REG/think_tank_photo_563_airport_international_v3_0_carry.html/BI/2144/KBID/2882\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">link</a>&#0160; —Ed</em>.] because they are so well made, reliable and well designed; and the Think Tank backpack I bought recently made carrying on gear to 26 flights in six weeks, including an international flight, a much better experience. It. is. <em>PERFECT</em>.&quot;</p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 40px;\"><strong>Mike replies</strong>: <em>But Kirk</em>...you&#39;re <em>a cool hipster! I meant it as a good thing, not a bad thing. Isn&#39;t hipster sort of part of the job definition for most pros? I worked for a studio pro in the &#39;80s whose style was decidedly, recognizably &#39;70s, and he didn&#39;t last much longer—retired to his 90-foot sailboat. Woe betide the pro without his or her finger on the pulse of the latest styles and fashions, or am I wrong?</em></p>\r\n<p><strong>dogman</strong>: &quot;When you buy the Lowepro bag, get it in black and also buy a black Sanford Sharpie pen. Immediately sit down with the Sharpie and carefully cover that offensive logo. It will still be there but now it will only whisper &#39;lowepro&#39; instead of scream &#39;LOWEPRO.&#39;&quot;</p>\r\n<p><strong>K Williams</strong>: &quot;I&#39;ll make a suggestion from the Cool Hipster brands, a <a href=\"https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1340543-REG/think_tank_photo_461_turnstyle_10_v2_0_convertible.html/BI/2144/KBID/2882\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">Think Tank TurnStyle 10</a> (or maybe 5). This is my favorite camera bag by far and like many I have had quite a few. This one is the only one that really stands out from the crowd. You will forget you are carrying it after a short while. Very comfortable. Not too big. Just two moveable dividers inside. Very easy to get to your gear also and to change lenses inside the bag. Will hold a G9 with 12–35mm and 35–100mm with a little room to spare. The TurnStyle 5 may be able to hold that also but I don&#39;t have one. No flap and it comes with a bag to put over the bag in case of heavy rain, but I&#39;ve never had to use it.&quot;</p>\r\n<p><strong>Hugh</strong>: &quot;Have a look at the <a href=\"https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/131472-REG/Billingham_501733_L2_Bag_Khaki_with.html/BI/2144/KBID/2882\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">Billingham L2</a>. I think it’s the perfect small bag....&quot;</p>\r\n<p><strong>Ricardo Silva Cordeiro</strong>: &quot;I was on the same page as you last month, shopping for a new medium-sized messenger camera bag that would replace my previous good-looking but cheaply made one (which started to fell apart after 1.5 years; come to think of it not bad actually for something with a daily use that cost me 35 bucks). I was investigating online and was still torn between a good but super expensive one and another good-looking but cheap one. But then I was just walking trough a store and saw &#39;the one&#39;: a <a href=\"https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1332302-REG/manfrotto_mb_mn_m_sd_10_manfrotto_lifestyle_manhattan_speedy_10.html/BI/2144/KBID/2882\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">Manfrotto Manhattan Speedy 10</a>. It has everything I wanted, elegant and discreet, perfect size, lightweight, good materials and rain-proof, good access to gear and enough pouches/organization. It even is possible to carry a small tripod with some straps on the base. Also the price is right in the middle compared to the other ones I was deciding, one more factor that made me look at it as the &#39;goldilocks option&#39; for me. Here&#39;s two good videos on it, it&#39;s not like checking it in person, but close enough: [<a href=\"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2S0QhZCOx3I\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">one</a>, <a href=\"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TrOMGurhV7Q\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">two</a>] both from Manfrotto.&quot;&#0160;&#0160;</p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 40px;\"><strong>Mike replies</strong>: <em>Manfrotto recently acquired the Kata bag brand, which as far as I know were made in Israel. Although the Kata brand name was retired, Manfrotto promised that Kata&#39;s DNA would find its way into Manfrotto products. I wonder if the Manhattan Speedy 10 was previously a Kata model? I don&#39;t know the product lines well enough to guess.</em></p>\r\n<p><strong>Mike Plews</strong>: &quot;I have a Tenba bag that I bought in 1983 that is still soldiering on but is way too big for a walk-around. Being incredibly cheap I popped for the Amazon Basics bag you featured. It easily swallowed a Nikon D7100 with a grip, an 18–70mm Nikkor, a 70–210mm ƒ/4 AF Nikkor (the old design) and an SB600 flash. May be swapping out the flash for an 11–16mm Tokina shortly and I expect it to fit just fine.</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"https://theonlinephotographer.typepad.com/.a/6a00df351e888f8834022ad3d0204c200b-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Plews\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00df351e888f8834022ad3d0204c200b image-full img-responsive\" src=\"https://theonlinephotographer.typepad.com/.a/6a00df351e888f8834022ad3d0204c200b-800wi\" title=\"Plews\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>&quot;Will this bag last 30 years? I&#39;m 69 and I doubt I&#39;ll find out. For the money it is terrific, maybe perfect for my needs. Your mileage may vary.&quot;</p>\r\n<p><strong>Pierre Charbonneau</strong>: &quot;The bag I have been using for all my errands and travel since 10 years+ is an <a href=\"https://amzn.to/2TTInlT\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">Artisan &amp; Artist ACAM-7100</a>. A Leica M and two lenses do fit very well. The bag is discreet, very light and well padded and cost dearly. It wears very slowly, considering the daily use. I may have never to replace it, which sweetens the initial price.&quot;</p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 40px;\"><strong>Mike replies</strong>: <em>That&#39;s a great bag, but I fear it would be just a touch small for my equipment. I think it was made especially for a Leica if the name at the link is any indication! </em></p>\r\n<p><strong>Yanchik</strong>: &quot;Greg Lowe and his brother were cutting-edge US alpinists in their time. And that time was one when climbing gear was rare and poor. So one or the other or both (I forget) set up Lowe Alpine, with LowePro as a brand extension. To me, a mild alpinist, having seen Greg speak while struggling horribly with Alzheimer’s towards what is surely the end of his life, these guys are the real deal—I suspect I am not alone amongst a demographic of climbers. My reply intended as an informative broadening of your horizons, rather than a rebuke. Stick it to da man by all means, but dis is not, I think, da man.&quot;</p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 40px;\"><strong>Mike replies</strong>: <em>Thank you for the background. I did not mean to disparage the founders; however I think &quot;Lowe Alpine&quot; is a much cooler name. The word &quot;pro&quot; just reeks of cheap and by-rote to me. Not their fault, I know.<br /></em></p>",

Keeping to yourself is not a bad idea but can ultimately cut you off from spontaneous friendships, unexpected security and a sense of well -being. Neighborhoods are microcosms of community and history with natural and architectural guideposts that help place us in a context. It can be a concrete jumble of buildings, but if people are talking to each other, smiling, doing a little of this and that to make someone feel cared for or at home, it’s pretty special. It’s the people and how they treat each other that makes a neighborhood.</span></p>\r\n<p class=\"MsoNormal\" style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-size: 10pt;\"><strong><a href=\"http://www.cnn.com/2008/LIVING/wayoflife/07/28/mf.mrrogers.neighbor/\">Homage To Mr Rogers</a></strong></span></p>\r\n<p class=\"MsoNormal\" style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-size: small;\"><span style=\"font-size: 13px; line-height: 13px;\"> <a href=\"http://www.onslowlife.com/.a/6a0120a6588c0d970b013485c071e4970c-pi\" style=\"display: inline;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12px; font-family: Palatino;\"><img alt=\"Bwsweep\" class=\"asset asset-image at-xid-6a0120a6588c0d970b013485c071e4970c selected \" src=\"http://www.onslowlife.com/.a/6a0120a6588c0d970b013485c071e4970c-pi\" style=\"border: 2px solid black; width: 300px;\" title=\"Bwsweep\" /></span></span></span></a><span style=\"font-size: 12px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12px; font-family: Palatino;\"> <br />&#0160;</span></span></span></span></span></p>\r\n<p class=\"MsoNormal\" style=\"text-align: center;\">&#0160;</p>\r\n<p class=\"MsoNormal\" style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-size: 10pt; font-family: book antiqua,palatino;\"><span style=\"line-height: 13px;\">Cooking With My International Neighbor</span></span></p>\r\n<p class=\"MsoNormal\" style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-size: 8pt; font-family: book antiqua,palatino;\"><span style=\"line-height: 13px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 10pt;\">My neighbor is from Iran. She is a fabulous cook and when I visit her for a chat,&#0160; her kitchen always smells of freshly cooked homemade meals. I asked her to teach me how to cook a simple dish so I could do it at home. I live in a mulit-cultural part of Los Angeles with lots of specialized markets. My cooking class with her brought me into her kitchen and into her culture. Our dogs played, we had a few laughs and I learned how to make a dish with beans, vegetables, chicken, rice and exotic spices.&#0160; Her charming accent and command of the kitchen right across the street from my house opened doors to another country. I will get the name of the dish but my trip to her kitchen was a slow reminder of the art of the neibhbor. </span><br /></span></span></p>\r\n<p class=\"MsoNormal\" style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-size: 8pt; font-family: book antiqua,palatino;\"><span style=\"line-height: 13px;\">&#0160;Learning How To Cook From My Persian Neighbor<br /></span></span></p>\r\n<p class=\"MsoNormal\" style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-size: small;\"><span style=\"font-size: 13px; line-height: 13px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12px; font-family: Palatino;\"><iframe frameborder=\"0\" height=\"390\" src=\"http://www.youtube.com/embed/6b87ipzb9T8\" title=\"YouTube video player\" width=\"480\"></iframe>&#0160;<br /></span></span></span></span></span></p>\r\n<p class=\"MsoNormal\" style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-size: 17px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 15px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 17px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 16px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 15px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 11px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12px; font-family: Palatino;\">&#0160;</span></span></span></span> </span></span></span></span></span></span></span><span style=\"font-size: 17px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 15px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 17px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 16px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 15px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 11px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 15px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12px; font-family: Palatino;\">&#0160;</span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></p>\r\n<p class=\"MsoNormal\"><span style=\"font-size: 17px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 15px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 17px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 16px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 15px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 11px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 15px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12px;\"><span style=\"font-family: Palatino; font-size: 12px;\">When I moved into my house I was delighted by an old style welcome and the kindness of strangers. &#0160;I was doing &#0160;work on the place and found it quickly. I relocated from Northern California and I was a bit of a novelty, not a conventional family woman. Within the first week, I received cookies, pastries, cards and well wishes from several folks in the hood. And this is Los Angeles! &#0160;One thing I do know after living in old bungalow and courtyard cottages, my neighbors usually become a big part of my life. Front porches and courtyards enable a little interaction. Tending a garden, offering help or simply enduring a little chit chat can evolve into something amazing. After many years of moving around, I realize some of my dearest friends were neighbors. People I met at a garage sale in front of my house or on a hiking trail with our mutual dogs, a shared yard as a renter or a mutual mailbox in a condo were all opportunities to expand my world.</span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></p>\r\n<p class=\"MsoNormal\" style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-size: large;\"><span style=\"line-height: 20px;

Letting them dart back in the house in their PJs and pretending you don&#39;t see them is another way of being considerate. Picking up mail, papers, or letting them know when something loud and offensive is about to take place at your house is almost saintly. As much as we fear for our privacy and not getting involved, keeping the community spirit circulating no matter where you live is essential to the slow manifesto.

Keeping to yourself is not a bad idea but can ultimately cut you off from spontaneous friendships, unexpected security and a sense of well -being. Neighborhoods are microcosms of community and history with natural and architectural guideposts that help place us in a context. It can be a concrete jumble of buildings, but if people are talking to each other, smiling, doing a little of this and that to make someone feel cared for or at home, it’s pretty special. It’s the people and how they treat each other that makes a neighborhood.</span></p>\r\n<p class=\"MsoNormal\" style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-size: 10pt;\"><strong><a href=\"http://www.cnn.com/2008/LIVING/wayoflife/07/28/mf.mrrogers.neighbor/\">Homage To Mr Rogers</a></strong></span></p>\r\n<p class=\"MsoNormal\" style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-size: small;\"><span style=\"font-size: 13px; line-height: 13px;\"> <a href=\"http://www.onslowlife.com/.a/6a0120a6588c0d970b013485c071e4970c-pi\" style=\"display: inline;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12px; font-family: Palatino;\"><img alt=\"Bwsweep\" class=\"asset asset-image at-xid-6a0120a6588c0d970b013485c071e4970c selected \" src=\"http://www.onslowlife.com/.a/6a0120a6588c0d970b013485c071e4970c-pi\" style=\"border: 2px solid black; width: 300px;\" title=\"Bwsweep\" /></span></span></span></a><span style=\"font-size: 12px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12px; font-family: Palatino;\"> <br />&#0160;</span></span></span></span></span></p>\r\n<p class=\"MsoNormal\" style=\"text-align: center;\">&#0160;</p>\r\n<p class=\"MsoNormal\" style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-size: 10pt; font-family: book antiqua,palatino;\"><span style=\"line-height: 13px;\">Cooking With My International Neighbor</span></span></p>\r\n<p class=\"MsoNormal\" style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-size: 8pt; font-family: book antiqua,palatino;\"><span style=\"line-height: 13px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 10pt;\">My neighbor is from Iran. She is a fabulous cook and when I visit her for a chat,&#0160; her kitchen always smells of freshly cooked homemade meals. I asked her to teach me how to cook a simple dish so I could do it at home. I live in a mulit-cultural part of Los Angeles with lots of specialized markets. My cooking class with her brought me into her kitchen and into her culture. Our dogs played, we had a few laughs and I learned how to make a dish with beans, vegetables, chicken, rice and exotic spices.&#0160; Her charming accent and command of the kitchen right across the street from my house opened doors to another country. I will get the name of the dish but my trip to her kitchen was a slow reminder of the art of the neibhbor. </span><br /></span></span></p>\r\n<p class=\"MsoNormal\" style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-size: 8pt; font-family: book antiqua,palatino;\"><span style=\"line-height: 13px;\">&#0160;Learning How To Cook From My Persian Neighbor<br /></span></span></p>\r\n<p class=\"MsoNormal\" style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-size: small;\"><span style=\"font-size: 13px; line-height: 13px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12px; font-family: Palatino;\"><iframe frameborder=\"0\" height=\"390\" src=\"http://www.youtube.com/embed/6b87ipzb9T8\" title=\"YouTube video player\" width=\"480\"></iframe>&#0160;<br /></span></span></span></span></span></p>\r\n<p class=\"MsoNormal\" style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-size: 17px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 15px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 17px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 16px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 15px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 11px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12px; font-family: Palatino;\">&#0160;</span></span></span></span> </span></span></span></span></span></span></span><span style=\"font-size: 17px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 15px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 17px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 16px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 15px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 11px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 15px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12px; font-family: Palatino;\">&#0160;</span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></p>\r\n<p class=\"MsoNormal\"><span style=\"font-size: 17px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 15px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 17px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 16px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 15px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 11px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 15px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12px;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12px;\"><span style=\"font-family: Palatino; font-size: 12px;\">When I moved into my house I was delighted by an old style welcome and the kindness of strangers. &#0160;I was doing &#0160;work on the place and found it quickly. I relocated from Northern California and I was a bit of a novelty, not a conventional family woman. Within the first week, I received cookies, pastries, cards and well wishes from several folks in the hood. And this is Los Angeles! &#0160;One thing I do know after living in old bungalow and courtyard cottages, my neighbors usually become a big part of my life. Front porches and courtyards enable a little interaction. Tending a garden, offering help or simply enduring a little chit chat can evolve into something amazing. After many years of moving around, I realize some of my dearest friends were neighbors. People I met at a garage sale in front of my house or on a hiking trail with our mutual dogs, a shared yard as a renter or a mutual mailbox in a condo were all opportunities to expand my world.</span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></p>\r\n<p class=\"MsoNormal\" style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-size: large;\"><span style=\"line-height: 20px;

Letting them dart back in the house in their PJs and pretending you don&#39;t see them is another way of being considerate. Picking up mail, papers, or letting them know when something loud and offensive is about to take place at your house is almost saintly. As much as we fear for our privacy and not getting involved, keeping the community spirit circulating no matter where you live is essential to the slow manifesto.

Bring own food/water.<br /></strong><strong><br /></strong>As the Summer long distance swimming season approaches, it seems appropriate to explain what it takes to earn a Summer badge. Three long distance swims are on offer:</p>\r\n<ul>\r\n<li>The 6 km swims are held every summer Saturday morning at 7am until Feb.</li>\r\n<li>There is a 10 km swim once a month over summer. Next one inFeb.</li>\r\n<li>If these swims are too long for you, you can try a Triple Manly to Shelly swim any day during Summer (distance 3.5 km)&#0160;<a href=\"x-apple-data-detectors://7\">from 6.30</a>or&#0160;<a href=\"x-apple-data-detectors://8\">7 am</a>.</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n<p>&#39;Try a Triple&#39;.&#0160; Do the Manly to Shelly return swim 3 times non-stop and earn a triple badge.</p>\r\n<p><u>Please note</u>, Badges will be awarded to swimmers completing any and/or all of the 3 swims at the times and dates stated above and throughout the Summer months.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>You will earn a badge if you complete these swims and log them in iLog. The system will only record authorised 6K or 10K swims that are logged on the appropriate days. Badges will be presented at the Summer Badge Ceremony in March. If you are unsure of the routes and protocols for these swims, please ask at the desk before you swim. When swimming these longer distances, we request that, for safety reasons, you stay with the group. We also request that you do not swim in dangerous conditions. The quest for a little cloth badge is not worth putting your life at risk. Enjoy your swimming.</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p><strong>Operation Crayweed Grass planting in Cabbage Tree Bay</strong></p>\r\n<p>If you are interested in supporting/assisting this initiative by way of signing up to be a CV (Citizen Volunteer) please read on.</p>\r\n<p>The SIMS (Sydney Institute of Marine Science) Project Team expect to start the preparation work in late January and in February.</p>\r\n<p>Assistance could take the form of on-land prepping as well as snorkeling assistance helping the netting get secured etc. SIMS/U.NSW do however have strict compliance paperwork to be prepared/signed off on before commencing such assistance.</p>\r\n<p>If you are interested in becoming a CV to help the marine regeneration initiative could you please send your full name, mobile number and email to Dorset Sutton (Project Sponsor) at suttondorset@gmail.com.</p>\r\n<p>Dorset will forward you by email the paperwork required to be completed.

Bring own food/water.<br /></strong><strong><br /></strong>As the Summer long distance swimming season approaches, it seems appropriate to explain what it takes to earn a Summer badge. Three long distance swims are on offer:</p>\r\n<ul>\r\n<li>The 6 km swims are held every summer Saturday morning at 7am until Feb.</li>\r\n<li>There is a 10 km swim once a month over summer. Next one inFeb.</li>\r\n<li>If these swims are too long for you, you can try a Triple Manly to Shelly swim any day during Summer (distance 3.5 km)&#0160;<a href=\"x-apple-data-detectors://7\">from 6.30</a>or&#0160;<a href=\"x-apple-data-detectors://8\">7 am</a>.</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n<p>&#39;Try a Triple&#39;.&#0160; Do the Manly to Shelly return swim 3 times non-stop and earn a triple badge.</p>\r\n<p><u>Please note</u>, Badges will be awarded to swimmers completing any and/or all of the 3 swims at the times and dates stated above and throughout the Summer months.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>You will earn a badge if you complete these swims and log them in iLog. The system will only record authorised 6K or 10K swims that are logged on the appropriate days. Badges will be presented at the Summer Badge Ceremony in March. If you are unsure of the routes and protocols for these swims, please ask at the desk before you swim. When swimming these longer distances, we request that, for safety reasons, you stay with the group. We also request that you do not swim in dangerous conditions. The quest for a little cloth badge is not worth putting your life at risk. Enjoy your swimming.</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p><strong>Operation Crayweed Grass planting in Cabbage Tree Bay</strong></p>\r\n<p>If you are interested in supporting/assisting this initiative by way of signing up to be a CV (Citizen Volunteer) please read on.</p>\r\n<p>The SIMS (Sydney Institute of Marine Science) Project Team expect to start the preparation work in late January and in February.</p>\r\n<p>Assistance could take the form of on-land prepping as well as snorkeling assistance helping the netting get secured etc. SIMS/U.NSW do however have strict compliance paperwork to be prepared/signed off on before commencing such assistance.</p>\r\n<p>If you are interested in becoming a CV to help the marine regeneration initiative could you please send your full name, mobile number and email to Dorset Sutton (Project Sponsor) at suttondorset@gmail.com.</p>\r\n<p>Dorset will forward you by email the paperwork required to be completed.

CLS Bank Int&#39;l</em>, this step involves determining whether a claim is directed to a judicial exception, such as an abstract idea.&#0160; If not, then no § 101 rejection can be made.</p>\r\n<p>The updated guidance breaks step 2A into a pair of sub-steps:</p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 40px;\">• In sub-step 2A(i), one is to determine whether the claim recites a judicial exception, such as an abstract idea.&#0160; Abstract ideas are now limited to three categories:&#0160; mathematical concepts, certain methods of organizing human activity, and mental processes.</p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 40px;\">• If so, then in sub-step 2A(ii), one is to determine further &quot;whether the recited judicial exception is integrated into a practical application of that exception.&quot;</p>\r\n<p>If the claim involves such an exception, the second part of the § 101 analysis (step 2B) is applied to determine whether any element or combination of elements in the claim is sufficient to ensure that the claim amounts to significantly more than the judicial exception.&#0160; If this is the case, the claim is patent-eligible under § 101.&#0160; If not, it can be rejected.</p>\r\n<p><strong>Hypothetical Background</strong></p>\r\n<p>Example 37 relates to relocation of icons on a graphical user interface (GUI).&#0160; The background provided by the USPTO is as follows (abbreviated to focus on key aspects):</p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 40px;\">[C]omputer users may have a large number of icons on their display, making it difficult to find the icons most used.&#0160; The typically available ways to organize icons are alphabetically, by file size, and by file type.&#0160; If a computer user wants a non-typical arrangement of icons, the user would need to manually manipulate the icons on their display.</p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 40px;\">Accordingly, applicant&#39;s invention addresses this issue by providing a method for rearranging icons on a [GUI], wherein the method moves the most used icons to a position on the GUI, specifically, closest to the &quot;start&quot; icon of the computer system, based on a determined amount of use.</p>\r\n<p><strong>Claim 1</strong></p>\r\n<p>Claim 1 of Example 37 recites:</p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 40px;\">A method of rearranging icons on a graphical user interface (GUI) of a computer system, the method comprising:<br />&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;receiving, via the GUI, a user selection to organize each icon based on a specific criteria, wherein the specific criteria is an amount of use of each icon;<br />&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;determining, by a processor, the amount of use of each icon over a predetermined period of time; and<br />&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;automatically moving the most used icons to a position on the GUI closest to the start icon of the computer system based on the determined amount of use.</p>\r\n<p>Applying the first sub-step of 2A, the USPTO states that claim 1, under its broadest reasonable interpretation, &quot;covers performance of the limitation in the mind but for the recitation of generic computer components.&quot;&#0160; In other words, &quot;nothing in the claim element precludes the step from practically being performed in the mind,&quot; and &quot;[t]he mere nominal recitation of a generic processor does not take the claim limitation out of the mental processes grouping.&quot;&#0160; Thus, the claim recites an abstract idea.</p>\r\n<p>Moving on to the second sub-step, the USPTO notes that the claim &quot;recites the combination of additional elements of receiving, via a GUI, a user selection to organize each icon based on the amount of use of each icon, a processor for performing the determining step, and automatically moving the most used icons to a position on the GUI closest to the start icon of the computer system based on the determined amount of use.&quot;&#0160; Thus, the claim integrates the mental process into a practical application by reciting &quot;a specific manner of automatically displaying icons to the user based on usage which provides a specific improvement over prior systems.&quot;&#0160; As a result, the claim is eligible under step 2A because it is not directed to a judicial exception, and step 2B need not be applied.</p>\r\n<p><strong>Claim 2</strong></p>\r\n<p>Claim 2 of Example 37 recites:</p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 40px;\">A method of rearranging icons on a graphical user interface (GUI) of a computer system, the method comprising:<br />&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;receiving, via the GUI, a user selection to organize each icon based on a specific criteria, wherein the specific criteria is an amount of use of each icon;<br />&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;determining the amount of use of each <em>icon using a processor that tracks how much memory has been allocated to each application associated with each icon</em> over a predetermined period of time; and<br />&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;automatically moving the most used icons to a position on the GUI closest to the start icon of the computer system based on the determined amount of use.</p>\r\n<p>Key differences between claim 2 and claim 1 are highlighted.</p>\r\n<p>Applying the first sub-step of 2A, the USPTO states that claim 2 does not recite any of the three types of abstract ideas.&#0160; According to the USPTO, the determining step now &quot;requires action by a processor that cannot be practically applied in the mind&quot; because it involves &quot;a processor accessing computer memory indicative of application usage.&quot;&#0160; The USPTO further states that the claim does not recite either of the other two types of abstract ideas (mathematical relationships and methods of organizing human activity) either.&#0160; Like claim 1, claim 2 is eligible under step 2A because it is not directed to a judicial exception, and step 2B need not be applied.</p>\r\n<p><strong>Claim 3</strong></p>\r\n<p>Claim 3 of Example 37 recites:</p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 40px;\">A method of ranking icons of a computer system, the method comprising:<br />&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;determining, by a processor, the amount of use of each icon over a predetermined period of time; and<br />&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;ranking the icons, by the processor, based on the determined amount of use.</p>\r\n<p>Applying the first sub-step of 2A, the USPTO states that claim 3, like claim 1, &quot;covers performance of the [determining] limitation in the mind but for the recitation of generic computer components.&quot;&#0160; Therefore, claim 3 recites a mental process.&#0160; The USPTO notes that the ranking limitation also recites a mental process because &quot;the claim encompasses the user thinking that the most-used icons should be ranked higher than the least-used icons.&quot;</p>\r\n<p>Under the second sub-step of 2A, the USPTO finds that the only additional element is the processor, and that &quot;[t]his generic processor limitation is no more than mere instructions to apply the exception using a generic computer component.&quot;&#0160; Thus, the claim does not integrate the abstract idea of the recited mental process into a practical application thereof, and the claim is therefore directed to an abstract idea.</p>\r\n<p>Invoking step 2B, the USPTO similarly concludes that &quot;the additional element in the claim amounts to no more than mere instructions to apply the exception using a generic computer component.&quot;&#0160; Thus, the 2B analysis follows that of the second sub-step of 2A, resulting in the claim not containing significantly more than the abstract idea.&#0160; Accordingly, the claim is patent-ineligible.</p>\r\n<p><strong>Analysis</strong></p>\r\n<p>The USPTO makes it clear in this example that the mental process category of abstract ideas is not meant to be taken literally.&#0160; It is not limited to steps that are carried out wholly in the human mind.&#0160; Instead, a step that (in theory) could be performed in the mind but is recited as being performed by a processor is still considered a mental step.&#0160; This is a bit of legal fiction to note well.</p>\r\n<p>The distinction between claims 1 and 2 is also quite fine.&#0160; Claim 1 recites &quot;determining the amount of use of each icon over a predetermined period of time&quot; while claim 2 recites &quot;the amount of use of each icon using a processor that tracks how much memory has been allocated to each application associated with each icon over a predetermined period of time.&#0160; While claim 2 is narrower than claim 1, it is not 100% clear why claim 2 is not also reciting a mental process.</p>\r\n<p>The USPTO&#39;s justification for concluding that it does not is that claim 2 involves &quot;a processor accessing computer memory indicative of application usage.&quot;&#0160; But if we are allowed to ignore the literal meaning of the term &quot;processor&quot; in these claims, why is the processor&#39;s use of memory not ignored as well?&#0160; Why isn&#39;t the &quot;computer&quot; qualifier disregarded to find the term &quot;memory&quot; broad enough to encompass human memory?</p>\r\n<p>Perhaps the answer is that the combination of a processor and the specific use of the memory is enough to find the claim not directed to a mental process.&#0160; But the USPTO is silent in this regard, and it remains difficult to know where to draw the line.</p>\r\n<p>Further, the determination of whether a recited abstract idea is integrated into a practical application is similarly vague.&#0160; In claim 1, such an integration is found because the claim recites specific requirements that leads to an improvement over the prior art.&#0160; In claim 3, however, the apparent lack of recited detail was enough to conclude that any such integration was <em>de minimis</em> at best.&#0160; Perhaps the absence of any movement of the icons damned claim 3 to abstractness hell.</p>\r\n<p>From the outset, the <em>Alice </em>test has required a certain suspension of logic in order to follow the Supreme Court&#39;s reasoning.&#0160; By expanding the test with two additional sub-steps, the USPTO is attempting to provide clarity.&#0160; Unfortunately, the USPTO appears to be adopting the same legal fictions that have made the post-<em>Alice </em>§ 101 inquiry so subjective in the first place.</p>",

That he does this while covering only one year in the life of his characters is amazing. Much of what happens to those characters is relatively mundane, which makes the scene where Cleo, one of the maids of a middle-class Mexican family, goes shopping for a crib stand out all the more. For she never gets that crib ... the shopping is interrupted by the infamous Corpus Christi Massacre.

But before and after the Massacre, his characters continue with their daily lives.</p>\r\n<p><em>Roma</em> is obsessively autobiographical. Cuarón grew up in a house very much like the one in the movie, and he duplicated that house to such an extent that he used some family furniture to add authenticity. Yet Cuarón has an odd way of telling his own story. The kids (including, one assumes, the stand-in for Cuarón) are indistinguishable from each other. None of them develop unique characteristics. Instead, Cuarón tells the story of his childhood by giving us the story of Cleo. We don&#39;t exactly see things through her eyes. Rather, we see things as the young Alfonso remembers Cleo.

Problem is, I&#39;m often crammed into small offices and am not able to get far enough away from the subject to use it as I&#39;d like. When I am able to get far enough away (like for <a href=\"http://www.stephenvoss.com/unpolitical-portraits/anne-tyler\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">this portrait</a>), it&#39;s just beautiful.&quot;</p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 40px;\"><strong>Mike replies</strong>: <em>OMG is that Anne Tyler?</em> The <em>Anne Tyler? As in</em> Dinner at the Homesick Restaurant, Accidental Tourist<em> Anne Tyler? You did a beautiful job Stephen. That&#39;s a wonderfully atmospheric portrait, tinged with mystery and just a pinch of strangeness. </em></p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 80px;\"><strong>Stephen replies to Mike</strong>: &quot;Indeed, the very same! One of my very favorite portrait subjects of last year. Writers in general tend to make excellent subjects, I&#39;ve found. <a href=\"https://www.instagram.com/p/BlYdvI0hdJp/\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">One more from that afternoon</a>.&quot;</p>\r\n<p><strong>Andreas Schödl</strong>: &quot;The <a href=\"https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/371176-USA/Canon_0284B002_EF_S_60mm_f_2_8_Macro.html/BI/2144/KBID/2882\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">Canon EF-S 60mm ƒ/2.8</a> renders faces beautifully in my opinion.&quot;</p>\r\n<p><strong>RubyT</strong>: &quot;Definitely the <a href=\"https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/388316-REG/Pentax_27980_Telephoto_SMCP_FA_77mm_f_1_8.html/BI/2144/KBID/2882\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">Pentax FA 77mm Limited</a> (although the 43mm for groups). That&#39;s mostly APS-C for me, although occasionally 35mm film. However, my interest is piqued by the upcoming <a href=\"https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1436293-REG/sigma_56mm_f_1_4_dc_dn_f_micro.html/BI/2144/KBID/2882\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">Sigma 56mm ƒ/1.4 for Micro 4/3</a>.&quot;</p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 40px;\"><strong>Mike replies</strong>: <em>Wow, mine too. I love the bokeh I&#39;m seeing from that Sigma. No sooner did I start talking about a OC/OL/OY than that lens popped up in front of me...which is what always happens. Let me talk about not doing something, and right away I want nothing more than to do it, and</em> vice-versa. <em>I doubt I&#39;m going to be able to resist that lens for a whole year.</em></p>\r\n<p><strong>Mike P</strong> (<em>partial comment</em>): &quot;For Micro 4/3 cameras the new Sigma 56mm ƒ/1.4 has won me over in a big way. I always liked a 105mm ƒ/2.5 Nikkor, and this is as close as it gets. The <a href=\"https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1124342-REG/panasonic_h_hs043k_lumix_g_42_5mm_f_1_7.html/BI/2144/KBID/2882\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">42.5mm Lumix ƒ/1.7</a> is also quite nice, but I prefer something a bit longer so it rarely got used. Until I got the Sigma 56mm, the <a href=\"https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/971403-REG/olympus_v311040bu000_m_75mm_f1_8_lens.html/BI/2144/KBID/2882\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">Olympus 75mm</a> was my go-to lens, but also it was usually a bit too long and put me too far away from my subject.&quot;</p>\r\n<p><strong>Michael Meyer</strong>: &quot;Corporate portraits are the core of my commercial practice.

Problem is, I&#39;m often crammed into small offices and am not able to get far enough away from the subject to use it as I&#39;d like. When I am able to get far enough away (like for <a href=\"http://www.stephenvoss.com/unpolitical-portraits/anne-tyler\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">this portrait</a>), it&#39;s just beautiful.&quot;</p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 40px;\"><strong>Mike replies</strong>: <em>OMG is that Anne Tyler?</em> The <em>Anne Tyler? As in</em> Dinner at the Homesick Restaurant, Accidental Tourist<em> Anne Tyler? You did a beautiful job Stephen. That&#39;s a wonderfully atmospheric portrait, tinged with mystery and just a pinch of strangeness. </em></p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 80px;\"><strong>Stephen replies to Mike</strong>: &quot;Indeed, the very same! One of my very favorite portrait subjects of last year. Writers in general tend to make excellent subjects, I&#39;ve found. <a href=\"https://www.instagram.com/p/BlYdvI0hdJp/\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">One more from that afternoon</a>.&quot;</p>\r\n<p><strong>Andreas Schödl</strong>: &quot;The <a href=\"https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/371176-USA/Canon_0284B002_EF_S_60mm_f_2_8_Macro.html/BI/2144/KBID/2882\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">Canon EF-S 60mm ƒ/2.8</a> renders faces beautifully in my opinion.&quot;</p>\r\n<p><strong>RubyT</strong>: &quot;Definitely the <a href=\"https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/388316-REG/Pentax_27980_Telephoto_SMCP_FA_77mm_f_1_8.html/BI/2144/KBID/2882\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">Pentax FA 77mm Limited</a> (although the 43mm for groups). That&#39;s mostly APS-C for me, although occasionally 35mm film. However, my interest is piqued by the upcoming <a href=\"https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1436293-REG/sigma_56mm_f_1_4_dc_dn_f_micro.html/BI/2144/KBID/2882\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">Sigma 56mm ƒ/1.4 for Micro 4/3</a>.&quot;</p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 40px;\"><strong>Mike replies</strong>: <em>Wow, mine too. I love the bokeh I&#39;m seeing from that Sigma. No sooner did I start talking about a OC/OL/OY than that lens popped up in front of me...which is what always happens. Let me talk about not doing something, and right away I want nothing more than to do it, and</em> vice-versa. <em>I doubt I&#39;m going to be able to resist that lens for a whole year.</em></p>\r\n<p><strong>Mike P</strong> (<em>partial comment</em>): &quot;For Micro 4/3 cameras the new Sigma 56mm ƒ/1.4 has won me over in a big way. I always liked a 105mm ƒ/2.5 Nikkor, and this is as close as it gets. The <a href=\"https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1124342-REG/panasonic_h_hs043k_lumix_g_42_5mm_f_1_7.html/BI/2144/KBID/2882\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">42.5mm Lumix ƒ/1.7</a> is also quite nice, but I prefer something a bit longer so it rarely got used. Until I got the Sigma 56mm, the <a href=\"https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/971403-REG/olympus_v311040bu000_m_75mm_f1_8_lens.html/BI/2144/KBID/2882\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">Olympus 75mm</a> was my go-to lens, but also it was usually a bit too long and put me too far away from my subject.&quot;</p>\r\n<p><strong>Michael Meyer</strong>: &quot;Corporate portraits are the core of my commercial practice.

Substitute autism for dementia and I wonder how our loved ones would be received? This staff was comprised of adults with dementia who had had excellent careers and proven intelligence. The same can not be said for people with autism like my three daughters. Passersby often assume they are fully intellectually disabled. They are not. They assume they can not understand what they hear. They can.&#0160; My girls at 24, 22 and 18 have never had a career. Would the public be as patient. I fear not. Read the full article and share your thoughts. Could we do this with autism -staff a typical business for a day, week, month and see the response here in hurry up impatient America?&#0160; KIM<br /><br />###<br /><br /><strong>Would YOU eat at a restaurant where all the staff have dementia? Our Mail on Sunday reporter tried it out...</strong></p>\r\n<p class=\"mol-para-with-font\"><em>Tapping my pin number into the terminal to pay for lunch, I notice my waitress Sue hovering. Quick as a flash, she says: ‘I’ll turn away but you don’t have to worry. I won’t remember the number anyway.’</em></p>\r\n<p class=\"mol-para-with-font\"><em>Moments earlier, she had carefully entered the cost of my meal, totalling £23, into the machine, and bravely confessed she had forgotten how to add up – a devastating admission for a 62-year-old former sales rep who was once used to working with numbers.</em></p>\r\n<p class=\"mol-para-with-font\"><em>Welcome to The Restaurant That Makes Mistakes, staffed entirely by dementia sufferers.

I run towards the finish line which is continuously moving away from me, and I can only accelerate more and more to catch it.</p>\r\n<p>I have my eyes on the finish line, and I do not even look at the competition. I do not even notice other people around me or the obstacles in front of me. I just run. The finish line if my carrot on a stick and I need nothing more.</p>\r\n<p>But for a moment, I pause for a second to catch my breath. All this running has exhausted me. But I promise you; it is just for a brief second.</p>\r\n<p>And suddenly I notice all the other people running next to me. But the weird part is that they are not running in the same direction as me. Some of them go horizontally, some of them go backwards, and even a few of them run diagonally.</p>\r\n<p>It is as if the finish line is only visible to me and everybody else is after something else. Something I cannot see. Because all I see is people running. </p>\r\n<p>But maybe, this is the whole truth. Everyone has their finish line, and they are the only ones who can see it.</p>\r\n<p>But if that is the case, then this should not be a race after all. If I am the only participant, it does not sound like a race to me. A race requires at least two people to participate: one winner and one loser.</p>\r\n<p>But maybe, again, this is the reality of it. There is only one participant, and I can never win because I will never cross the finish line.</p>\r\n<p>Maybe it is the right moment to confirm to myself that I am the loser in this race.</p>\r\n<p>And the only way to stop being the loser is to stop caring about the race.</p>",

I run towards the finish line which is continuously moving away from me, and I can only accelerate more and more to catch it.</p>\r\n<p>I have my eyes on the finish line, and I do not even look at the competition. I do not even notice other people around me or the obstacles in front of me. I just run. The finish line if my carrot on a stick and I need nothing more.</p>\r\n<p>But for a moment, I pause for a second to catch my breath. All this running has exhausted me. But I promise you; it is just for a brief second.</p>\r\n<p>And suddenly I notice all the other people running next to me. But the weird part is that they are not running in the same direction as me. Some of them go horizontally, some of them go backwards, and even a few of them run diagonally.</p>\r\n<p>It is as if the finish line is only visible to me and everybody else is after something else. Something I cannot see. Because all I see is people running. </p>\r\n<p>But maybe, this is the whole truth. Everyone has their finish line, and they are the only ones who can see it.</p>\r\n<p>But if that is the case, then this should not be a race after all. If I am the only participant, it does not sound like a race to me. A race requires at least two people to participate: one winner and one loser.</p>\r\n<p>But maybe, again, this is the reality of it. There is only one participant, and I can never win because I will never cross the finish line.</p>\r\n<p>Maybe it is the right moment to confirm to myself that I am the loser in this race.</p>\r\n<p>And the only way to stop being the loser is to stop caring about the race.</p>",
