5 top tips for boosting your income

If you are looking for extra ways of making money, then the good news is there are some things you can do. There’s no sure-fire way to get rich quick, but there are ways that you could earn a little bit more cash.

Here are 5 top…

Different Styles And Types Of Furniture To Try For Your Home

Fun Repurposing Projects for Those Old Blinds

No room is complete without the right blinds! But, that doesn’t mean the same set of blinds will look right at home in your living room until the end…

I read the term "media diet" the other day. (Is that a thing now?)

I have given some thought (probably not enough) to the foods that I prepare for my family and the ways to make them healthier, but I have never thought to apply the idea of "diet" to non-food items.

So, clearly, the term caught my attention. And, since I am so screen time focused, I figured that I might want to see what my own media diet consists of. After all, I tout all sort of grand ideas for what kind of changes I want to make when it comes to media use, so it would be good to get some sort of baseline, right?

Besides, I am curious as to the kind of example I am setting for my son.

So, for the next week, I am going to try and keep a media diary to see what I consume on my computer, the TV and my phone - both within and outside of my son's radar.

You can play along, too. Just record the following information:

  • Media source (TV, computer, phone, other)
  • Length of time
  • Visible to your child? Yes or No

Let's see how we do.

Any guesses as to how you'll fare? Make them in the comments.

Haha - yes my goal is to post again on Monday. We don't have TV either, but I do like my phone's games...yikes - I don't even want to think about my computer time. Here we go!

Sounds good. I think I'm at an advantage, though. We have no tv connection (but I'm a netflix junkie) and  I still use my 6 year old cell phone (pre-photo phone). I can't really text and there's no internet connection. But finally, I'm at an advantage with my old phone and lack of tv!  I'm up for your media challenge.  I'll start logging in computer hours, which I know need to be curbed.

So, let the logging begin as I click over to Netflix and see what's new.

Will you be posting your results next Monday?
