Long Read. “Parasocial relationships” explain why we think influencers are our friends.

I came home from Montana in a real nesting mood.  I’m cleaning out closets, making Goodwill drop offs, fixing things that have been broken for too long, and planning to put art up on these sparse walls.  And my solution for the latter is Framebridge.

You upload family photos, digital downloads and more to the Framebridge website.  Then, they print, frame and ship anywhere.  I’ve used it for a lot of Nana gifts over the years.

You can use their design services to help you get the look you want, or you can build a gallery wall or art project yourself.  Items ship in as little as two days.  So you can be ready to hang them up this weekend.

    As someone who was fantasizing about quitting my job and finishing my garage walls this morning, the burn out article sounds very true. I need and can afford a long break but I keep going only because I’m too worried of the impact on my career and this self-inflicted feeling of failure.
