Yours *TrulyJuly*

I do everything content.

In Europe I used to go to the cheapest supermarket and buy 100% yoghurt.

 

In South Africa simple yoghurt is surprisingly expensive and full of stabilisers and preservatives.

“Ingredients: Low Fat Milk, Stabilisers (milk), Yoghurt Cultures, Preservative (pimaricin).”

 

While Whoolworths hail their yoghurt as preservative free, it still contains stabilisers and they added emulsifiers and whey powder instead.

“Ingredients: Full cream milk – Stabiliser (Plant-based stabilisers – Emulsifier) – Milk solids (Whey powder) – Yoghurt cultures – Bifidobacterium (HN019) culture.”

 

What’s going on? Clearly it’s possible to make yoghurt without all those unwanted additives?

Tip: Use the 'Date modified:' advanced search function to find your files.

Tip: Use the ‘Date modified:’ advanced search filter to find your files.

 

Have you ever looked for a document but couldn’t remember what it was called?

Even with a Naming Convention and Filing System some document can slip through and for the life of us, we can’t find it.

But don’t despair, there’s still a hack that can help:

 

Search your documents by date modified.

Simply select the advanced search options in your explorer folder by clicking on ‘Date modified:’ under ‘Add a search filter’.

You can select a specific date, or a date range, or a preset time frame from ‘Yesterday’ to ‘Earlier this year’ to ‘A long time ago’.

This also works on a Mac.

 

Tip: Clicking on 'A long time ago' gives you an instant throwback to all the work you've done.

Tip: Clicking on ‘A long time ago’ gives you an instant throwback to all the work you’ve done in chronological order.

 

‘A long time ago’ is my personal favourite, it instantly catapults you back a couple of years ago and gives you a lovely chronological overview of the documents you created since.

As a writer this helps me find inspiration for my blog posts, but it’s also quite uplifting to just look at the sheer volume of the work you’ve done and clap yourself on the shoulder.

 

How about offering a break instead of a permanent unsubscribe.

How about offering a break instead of a permanent unsubscribe.

 

By law and to be ethically sound every promotional email should contain an easy one-click unsubscribe button.

 

However, you don’t want to give up on your subscribers so easily.

 

The usual ‘sad to see you go’ might be polite, but only confirms their action.

 

Instead, prevent your customers from unsubscribing by first offering them a real alternative: To pause their subscription.

 

This might not mean much to your subscribers, but for you it’s a second chance: It gives you the time to work on your newsletter and improve it. So when their subscription is back on, they hopefully like what they see and stay subscribed.

 

This will lower churn and improve your customer retention, showing how creating Value Added Content can have real impact on business success.

Southern Guild's exhibition 'Stellar' is worth a visit.

Southern Guild’s exhibition ‘Stellar’ is worth a visit.

 

The Southern Guild’s exhibition Stellar wows with a uniqueness and newness that inspires to design materials in a way no-one had dared before.

 

Every single piece has a quality to it that you can feel a life’s effort went into it. The craftsmanship is humbling in its dedication to detail.

 

Attending the walkabout where the designers were present and filled their art pieces with stories and struggles added depth and personality.

 

But the designs speak for themselves. It is easy to get submerged in the features of the physical embodiment representing a great concept that emerged from the love for the medium and the sheer will to transform it into new sculptural heights.

 

Stellar is running until the 14th of October, go see for yourself: https://southernguild.co.za/exhibitions/stellar

Is this a test?

Oh no, it’s just a spelling mistake.

Another great example why it’s a good idea to proofread your copy before posting it.

Following good practices such as a spellchecker integrated in the publishing tool could’ve avoided this funny little blunder.

So, how do you like living in Lower Woodstock?

 

I like it. I enjoy living in this street. The neighbours are friendly. It’s safe to cycle.

 

What about the crime?

 

Crime is an issue everywhere in South Africa.

 

What about the dirt?

 

We can all help clean it up by doing a MOOP swoop.

 

And the children? What about the noise?

 

You mean the kids playing soccer on the empty plot next door? But that’s the best part!

BC x Seattle Humane

We are Bellevue College students partnering with Seattle Humane, an impact non-profit organization, with their mission to find homes for the animals in their shelter that are normally considered "unadoptable." Seattle Humane is unlike any animal shelter. They take in animals no matter the breed, age, or physical condition and hold them for as long as it'll take them to find proper homes for these animals. Their hard work and care is exactly what we need to create a better environment for the animals we love. Please follow our instagram page @bcforhumane for more animals in need of a home.

Have a dose of what life is really like living here – from my single-handed destruction of the Turkish language, random arguments with random relatives about everything from apples to vaginas to learning the secrets to making the perfect içli köfte! Highs or lows this is my observations from the melting pot of crazy that is my life in Mersin.
