Hey, I’m Jijo 👋

I’m a maker, (bad) writer, occasional coder and a picky reader. I’m a co-founder at BuyMeACoffee.com and previously built 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.

Tools

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 QC35Brain.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 🤷

Thank you for dropping by. Have a good one!
