[insert self-deprecating humor here]
This is a blog about the only product I’ve researched thoroughly before purchasing.
I’m an impulse-buyer that relies heavily on testimonials.
ADHD. Unmedicated. Super affected by interruptions in the soundscape.
How do you do?
I hemmed. I hawwed.
I went to Best Buy and tried on the grossest post-covid era headphones I’ve seen since the plantdemic started. Combined with my clear and prescription-less blue-blocker computer glasses, my internet powers are immense.
I literally did NOT hear Boyfriend make me a smoothie this morning. It just … appeared. *poof*
How fucking cool is that?
For two otherwise amazing years with this human, I’ve been cringing in my seat at the sound of the blender tearing through space & time to spontaneously combust all my thoughts into oblivion. I’m sensitive to sounds. I’ve tried to let it go because …
I LIKE this guy. But I work from home. Not only do I work from home, but I’m an entrepreneur in the “start-up” phase.
That means …
The dream, right?
Are we freaking out yet?
I mean … have you TRIED asking Meta chat people for actual assistance lately? For help understanding how to map the metadata Meta is asking for from Shopify to connect the dots in the cloud? Not exactly a walk in the customer service park. It’s kinda like dealing with the mainstream millennials that THOSE PEOPLE keep talking about.
Anyway, don’t ask Meta for help. They’re not there to be helpful. Just do a Google Search for your answer instead. Don’t find the answer you need? Write it. That’s the world we live in.
I found my answer for dealing with the cacophony of clashes clambering through the atmosphere.
SONY WH-1000XM4 are the answer for me.
I feel like I got my corner office back.
Padded, sound-proof walls with a view. Free daily smoothies.
Uninterrupted flow time to get my rambunctious thoughts onto the metaphorical paper that is my WordPress blog drafts.
Hi, my name is Daisy. I have a small head, a neurodivergent brain, a bunch of jokes, and a few brands I write for. Some are my own and I’m a copywriter by “trade”. This is the Dobedo Marketing Blog. Where I talk about stuff I do be doing. I just made that up. The slogan. What do you think?
I love talking business with my friends, skateboarding, hula hooping, cracking jokes & gardening barefoot + spending time without pants on.
I stay at home most days. I’m a writer. I’ve always been a writer. In my head, there’s like … a little narrator … narrating. Everything. Everywhere. All at once.
You seen that movie? Oscar winner …
Today, writing is a lot of things. I don’t sit at the oil lamp attic window desk of my dreams writing novels. Mostly emails and blogs and websites. Content, story, novel, copy. When I say I’m a copywriter in public, I throw up a little “w” gang sign and say
“with a w … its like … SALES x COPY, not the right-to-copy.”
In person, I use a lot of hand gestures.
I’ll go even further into full-body movements if I’m telling a story in person. For effect, ya know? Like … I’ll run across the room if it will make the story better. Raise my voice. Crouch down. Whisper. Whatever it takes.
But in writing.
Well in my writing, my personality comes out in prose, and in the formatting. I use a lot of emdashes, dots, and ampersands … like this — … &&
Ooh, and lots of times, I don’t smush my — right up to the last letter. I leave a space. Not really for any particular stylistic reason. Mostly because I set up my text expander snippets to work after a space delineator. Maybe someday I’ll change the expansion and come link back to the blog about it here.
I use Notion to create a database of all my blogs. Since I have a few brands, Notion helps me keep them all in one place but create different views so I can look at just the data I want in front of me. The book Tipping Point says that one person can really only handle like 150 of anything before they start to lose control after that. So Notion helps me keep that together somewhere that I can have it, but not in front of my face. It’s like … In the closet. I go get it when I need it, but it’s not always in my space.
On my blog database, there’s a column to follow up. Every blog writing workflow works best if there’s a “follow-up” date. Because … reasons.
Like — updating your blog shows the Goobots that you’re active.
Grammarly says I overuse ellipses. Like a lot … But whatever, Uncle G. I like them. I use them. Stop me.
Catch me outside, how bout dat?
Noise Cancelling Headphones. I’ve had them for 24 hours.
I love them.
Corner office vibes. This is not an affiliate link. My application was denied. Prolly not starting a tech review YouTube anytime soon, so just give it a google or try to find someone to actually help you at Best Buy. Bring your own sanitation wipes. They were open & dry af.
I’ll be in my office. **puts on sony WH-1000XM4s**
