Hey, I’m Jijo ūüĎč

I’m a maker, (bad) writer, occasional coder and a picky reader. I’m a co-founder at¬†BuyMeACoffee.com¬†and WhatRuns.com. Say hello: mail [at] jijo.me,¬†LinkedIn¬†or¬†Twitter.

I publish short blog posts here on diverse topics (which I am not very proud of) and share movie and book reviews on my IMDB and Goodreads accounts. I have posted some of my backpacking stories on my Instagram. And I travel quite much.


Enough about me. Here’s something that might be useful¬†for you. Some¬†tools I use¬†and recommend to my geeky friends (productivity apps mostly):

  • Things 3¬†as¬†calendar, to-do list and planner. Keeps my head light and clear.
  • Notion as the personal knowledge base.
  • Bose QC35 +¬†Brain.fm¬†to¬†avoid distraction at work.
  • Casts app to listen to podcasts. My favourite shows? Exponent and Masters of Scale.
  • Slack¬†Fleep¬†for team communication. (edit: back to slack. love the bots)
  • Trello¬†Notion to organise my work, and for team collaboration.
  • Audible¬†for I am a big fan of audiobooks.
  • HeadSpace¬†Calm app to meditate.
  • AutoSleep to automatically track¬†my sleep using Apple watch. Works like magic.
  • Bear¬†App to write.
  • Streaks¬†because it’s a cute little app to help form new habits. Also because I believe in the power of habit.
  • WhatRuns to ‘know’ websites I visit; and because we built it¬†ūü§∑
