:houses: Investigating Clubhouse – anybody here tried it yet?

I recently read Daily Rituals: Artists at Work and was delighted to find so many delightful details. And glad to hear about people who also need a lot of sleep every night, like I do. :zzz:

Your turn! Here are a few questions to get you started:

  • What are you working on this week?
  • What is motivating (or demotivating) you this week?

Happy Monday friends! :wave:

I can hardly believe it’s ALMOST March! What!?

This week, I am…
:trophy: Working on all sorts of things for our very first customer awards! Yes, it’s true! More information coming soon friends!
:dog: Pups are going in for their final shots on Wednesday! I am sad to see them go but I am looking forward to sleep! :zzz:
:heart: Selecting our Community Champion of the Month for March! Interested in learning more about what it takes to become a Community Champion & all the perks that come with it? Read all about it here.
:memo: Lotssss of little side projects going on. Anyone have tips for managing all the things? Send them my way!

@sparklingrobots my sister @lissar was telling me all about ClubHouse like 3 weeks ago! It’s all the rave in the marketing world at the moment :slight_smile: I am personally really excited to learn more about it!

I nominate @steve.persch @dgorton @Avi123 @eladio to share what they are working on this week!


Thanks for the nomination!

How did you like for Florida DrupalCamp @sparklingrobots and @katie.richards ??
I saw you both in there last week! I really thought it did a good job at emulating the hallway. I think FLDC was a great success! We even had two core commits during contrib day!

This week…
I am finally taking the IAAP A11y exam, so studying right up until I take the test Wednesday AM…

Then, breathing. HAHA…

Working on DrupalCamp Asheville, DrupalCamp NYC, and BADCamp planning… a lot of kickoff calls this week and last.

I am looking forward to working with @sparklingrobots again next week when we deliver a speaker workshop to a WordPress group. I love the speaker diversity workshops!! Helping folks navigate through, imposter syndrome, creating a talk and bio… this is the stuff that motivates me!


Thanks @McKennaR !
Still getting used to the Pantheon world, and, especially, how do I navigate with Covid, working from home, coding, reading technical and fictional books, taking care of 3 house cats, cooking, Netflix et al.
I would love to go for interesting walks around Santa fe, NM., which I have been neglecting.
Looking forward to getting up early as well!

Working on getting things done.

I nominate everyone reading my bit to share what they are working on this week. Cheers!


@volkswagenchick was a really fun experience. It took some getting used to but it was nice to have random encounters with folks at the event


Sounds like a busy week ahead! Definitely get out & get some fresh air—it’s good for the soul! And while you’re at it, snap some photos & share with us :slight_smile: I have always wanted to visit Santa Fe, but have yet to make it that way!

Good luck on your exam this morning @volkswagenchick :clap: YOU GOT IT!!


Happy Friday everyone! It’s been a very busy week over here, but, happy I get a day or two off to relax.

@McKennaR - I use Asana for managing All The Things™. I really like how I can organize in different ways (by work on it now, upcoming, later, due date, project, tagging, etc) so it’s fairly powerful for that. :ballot_box_with_check:

@sparklingrobots - I keep hearing about Clubhouse but haven’t checked it out yet. What do you think of it? I like the idea, I think, but not sure I would have the time? But if there are specific groups like Reddit?

As for this week, loads more eCommerce work. As a followup to last week, I was able to sync the legal states to ship wine to from our vendor, so that really helps cut down on double data entry. Woot! :wine_glass:

At home, my new favorite YouTube channel is Studston Studio - this guy who makes models of video game houses/characters from whatever he has lying around - he’s very talented and funny to boot. :video_game:

What gives me energy at work - having an awesome team who communicates all the time - it really helps! :computer:

Have a great weekend!
