Apparently this is the face I make when I'm out scouting for good portrait locations and I decide to take a selfie with a "model pose" for full effect. 🤓😝

So you can take the Portland Aerial Tram up to the OSHU complex near Stonehenge radio tower, which I knew, but what I *didn't* know is you can veer right as soon as you get off the tram and walk along an AMAZING patio area that overlooks the whole frickin' Willamette Valley/Portland area—cafe tables and all.

Oh I'm coming back up here, no doubt about it!

Testing audio support…

(Cross Space by Yarred — aka, me :)

For the first time in forever (cue the Frozen music 🎶), I have a real weekly Content Production schedule for my podcast, vlog, and email newsletter! Freakin' excited right now. 🙌

I don't know what this is called, but since it's a pink fuzzball plant, I'm calling it **Pink Fuzz**.

Say Hi to the Fuzz.

OMG, I'm working on a new Dark Mode for my website for macOS and soon iOS users, and this is looking SO-O-O-O good. I'm tempted to enable this as a manual option for anyone to use, and now I'm even wondering if I like my regular color theme… 🤪

I had no idea until tonight as I was just taking a random stroll though the hills of Portland that you can walk on a path right along Hwy 26. Very cool views!

I've been hearing about Salt & Straw in ever since I got here. *Finally* I got a chance to try it. (So did this other random dude apparently.)

It was good. Not sure it's the best ice cream ever in the entire history of the planet Earth, but it definitely hit the spot. 🍦☺️

It's toward the end of the blooming season at Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden, but even so the scenery was breathtaking.

I just sent out issue 29 of the Mark Up This! newsletter. I think it's my best one yet. If you're feeling discouraged or that you've missed your chance to do something awesome, I hope this message brings you good cheer.

I should really do a whole photo essay on Tanner Springs Park. It's only one city block, but I find it endlessly fascinating.

I didn't really plan on getting a new phone anytime soon (still a happy iPhone 7 Plus user), BUT

* my battery life was going way down
* THEN I cracked my screen 😭

So I'm now the proud owner of a Coral iPhone XR. Getting it set up. Face ID is pretty sweet. I'll miss the portrait 2X lens though.

Spring fashion is all around us, and this podcast is no exception! The Jared White Show and JaredWhite.com have a fresh, funky new design for spring, and it all started…because of an Apple Watch band. Also a throwback to the internet of 1996, depressed superheroes, and gender-swapping cosplay. Never a dull moment!

Heads up seven up! I've totally refreshed my website and podcast for spring this year. Trying something out of the box (for me)…something fun and trendy.
