In this week’s Question Time video post I talk about balancing between working from home and general home life; what apps I use for managing my blogs, Twitter and RSS feeds; I share some of my favourite bands; and I discuss how I decide what to write blog posts about.

This week’s questions

  • How do you balance freelancing and home life?
  • Which apps/tools do you use for managing Twitter, RSS and your blogs?
  • Who are some of your favorite bands?
  • How do you decide what to write blog posts about?

  8. You sir, have a great taste of music! Much alike to mine, that is, been listening to all of the bands you mentioned excluding Funeral for a Friend. Gonna play it now on Spotify! ;) Thanks for the vblogs, they are really interesting.

  9. Another cool episode. Agreed on the audio, much better.

    Question for you, please: How long would you spend, on average, using pencil and paper before touching the MAC, when working on a website design & illustrations? Any examples of your work?

  10. The audio is much better this time. I’ll have to try tweetdeck, I’ve been looking for a good twitter application.

    Question: How do you make your tileable textures for your sites? I can never figure this out.
