#6 self-development backstage | new year resolutions • security tips • screenshots & snippets
Hey everyone, it’s
I hope you're all doing well. I wanted to quickly update you on a change I've made with the newsletter. I've recently switched from MailChimp to Substack and moved all of you over with me. If you’re not to too thrilled with this change and you'd like to opt-out, please let me know. But I do believe this platform will make it easier for us to engage and discuss things, as it has a comments section and an archive that is easily accessible from web https://selfformat.substack.com/.
Now on to the main content, I wanted to share with you some tools that I've been using and have found.
The first is an app called Shottr. It's a simple, but powerful app for taking screenshots available on macOS. How is that different from built-in screenshot creation? Well there’s ton of features like screen-ruler to measure pixels, unclutterd desktop, ocr, scrolling screenshot, but to be honest just take a look at this 1min video, and you’ll see it’s amazing.
Snappify / Ray.so
Another tool that I've been using recently are Snappify and ray.so. These are tools for creating code snippets and sharing them online in a form of well formatted image. It's a great way to save time on pasting snippets to Photoshop or another graphic editor, just to have code that will catch readers attention on twitter.
How to secure your accounts and devices
One more thing I wanted to mention, for my Polish readers. Some time ago I wrote an article about securing passwords, devices, and accounts. It covers various tips and best practices to keep your online identity safe. You can find the article here:
I know that not all of you may be able to read it as it's in Polish, but I still wanted to share it with those who can. For those of you who can’t read in Poliish I deeply suggest to read it through translator as it should be a piece of cake to translate it automatically, but I’ll do my best to provide proper translation in upcoming months.
YearCompass – fix your New Year’s resolutions
Lastly, I wanted to remind you about my latest post about Yearcompass. January 24th may be a bit late to be thinking about the past year, but I truly believe it's never too late to set good vibes for the upcoming year. In my post, I discuss Yearcompass and how it can help fix your New Year's resolutions. You can read it here:
