Useful tools for blogs and websites. Home work well-being. Part 4.
Working all day in front of a computer may not be an intense physical activity, but it is still taxing for our eyes, muscles, and body.stretchly is a cross-platform, FOSS app by Jan Hovancik, that reminds you to take breaks when working with a computer.
Having recently abandoned social media (it feels really good, by the way), and not enjoying the ads, pop-ups, and overall clickbaity tone of most news sites, I have now moved to using rss feeds to get my updates.
I find it funny that rss feeds have been around for ages, but after years of not really getting it, I now enjoy this method for getting news and updates more than any other.
Useful tools for blogging and maintaining a website
While I don't use many images on this blog, I do make art that I sometimes like to share online, and think it is important to make sure that images are optimised properly, so they don't take up a huge amount of space.
Krita – the app I use to make art – has its own web optimisation settings, however it is TinyPNG that provides the best results.
