There's a world outside of tech? ;) I'm going to have to go with the Positivity Blog. https://www.positivityblog.com/

Self Made Ladies is one of my favorite blogs outside the world of tech for sure.

Fox Nomad.is personal favorite. Since I work remotely I get to travel a lot so his blog really gives me some perspective of some new places I never thought about visiting.

https://tim.blog/ this is my favorite blog. Tim Ferris is the kind of work life balance and I truly enjoy learning how to get more of that.

WLB advice needed, fishes. When my kids (9 and 7) weren't at school, my job was AMAZING with letting me disappear from meetings to dispense snacks and just generally keeping a whacky schedule because I needed to take care of my kids since they were home all the time. With schools back to in person learning my job is understandably tightening up expectations again, even though we are still working from home. My kids don't understand/ like it AT ALL and when they get home from school they just want daddy and feel like I'm ignoring them. What do I do??
