Getting Back Into Using Audible

Hello everybody!
Today, I’ll be talking to you about Audible, my original experience using it and how and why I’m now getting back into it.

For those of you who may not know, Audible is a site where you can listen to books which have been recorded by the author themselves, or by someone who was hired to read the books.

When I first tried Audible

2015 was the first time I tried Audible. My reasons for trying it were to hope I’d get to read — or in this case, listen — more books.
Since my teenage years, I’ve always had an on/off relationship with reading. I could binge read three books and then not read for a year. Which sucked, because I own so many books I’d like to read and enjoy.
I started listening to one book. Couldn’t get into it. Exchanged it for another. Bored by it. In the end, I deleted the app and didn’t get back to it.

Why I got back into Audible

When it comes to blogging, and other writing work. I find that I’m most productive with some form of background noise. Be it streams, music, or audio books.

I thought if I was going to listen to audio books, I needed to find ones I wanted to listen to.

And I’ve found what I want to listen to.

I’ve been genuinely interested in learning about business recently. So I figured the best way to get learning would be to listen to books I may find interesting.

So far, I’ve listened to one — review coming soon — got another to go, and also an autobiography.

And to be completely honest? I’m very much looking forward to starting the next two books.

I can listen through my computer, or download it on my phone and go from there. I didn’t think I’d enjoy it as much as I expected to.

Are you a fan of books? Be it physical, digital, or audio. What are you currently reading, or hoping to soon start?

Until next time,
Surviving Millennial.

Instagram: Personal and Business Accounts

Hello everybody!
Today, I’d like to talk about something I found quite interesting.

About a month ago, I was seeing on twitter how people were talking about switching their business accounts to personal ones. Some claiming this improved their engagement and followers, some claiming it did the complete opposite.

Naturally, I was curious. Continue reading “Instagram: Personal and Business Accounts”

Tech I Like and Use

Hello everybody!
Today, I thought it’d be fun to talk about and show off some of the tech I like and use pretty much daily.

This post is inspired by the lovely Wiishu’s, and you can see her post here!

After reading this post when it first came out, I realised there were gadgets that I went to religiously, without even fully realising it. It’d just become a normal part of my daily routine or at least a regular thing in my lifestyle. Continue reading “Tech I Like and Use”
