Belkin Qode | Getting You in Security Mode

Last updated on April 5th, 2021 at 12:04 am

I can hardly believe it’s been over 4½ years since I scrambled to get my hands on an iPad 2 so I could have it while overseas, knowing that the lightweight tablet paired with an Apple Keyboard would travel far better than the 17″ MacBook Pro I rocked then. I still have it at home—its Magic Cover’s seen better days, frayed and torn from years of wear and tear; the skin of Justin Bua’s Piano Man II still sticking proudly to its back after everything it’s been through. Though I’d later move on to lighter laptops and smaller tablets to get things done, I know full well that my iPad would never have lasted as long as it has it wasn’t protected. Several adventures and devices with matching cases later, it’s a lesson I’ve carried with me, working hard to make the most of my tech in a world where everything’s become so… disposable.

That said, for Day 6 of A Case Cringle Christmas, I want to offer you the same sense of security I feel when I use my devices, and make sure one of my readers winds up with a Belkin Qode Ultimate Pro Keyboard Case for the iPad Air 2!

I Am Not a Sellout.

How did I put a bow on 2014? By letting someone know how I really felt.

I don’t usually post rants on my Facebook, but when I do

The end of a year that was entirely too long, I finished 2014 yearning to get back to basics, as the #BloggerLife had spun out of control and the blog more about the swag I got than the man behind the words.

So when someone commented on a post, calling me a sellout in a situation that’d be otherwise innocuous, I decided I’d had enough. I let it all out in a Facebook post that laid my feelings bare, sharing everything that’d bothered me in my #BloggerLife for some time, but never given voice.

I’m not a sell-out—I refuse to sell out. If there’s one thing I can tell you from years of blogging, it’s that authenticity matters, and there’s an inherent value to the space you build on the Web—no one in their right mind would give up years of work to grease their palm a little.

Only a couple of months into 2015, I’ve scaled back on my sponsored posts and giveaways. Though my Gmail still gets pitches and invites daily, I’ve set my mind on getting my act together this year—I’ll need to if I plan to make the #BloggerLife even better!
