Newsletters are boring. That is why we start off with a bored cat.
Very rarely, I send out newsletters. This was only my second attempt.
Do cats get bored? Do they like getting bored? Is boredom one step away from serenity? I guess that is why one person’s ‘relaxed’ is another person’s bored.
Speaking of which, the main reason I started writing this was purely because I got reasonably inspired by another newsletter I received today. So I thought I should give this another go. I tried a little while back and didn’t get much response. This time, I am trying again, and I encourage all of you to hit reply 🙂
So – while the website I represent is mostly technology, we do cover lifestyle and entertainment as well. This means that I can pretty much talk about anything over here. Which is good, as I like to ramble.
In all seriousness, though, I would like to present to you something that has been brewing in the background for a while. It still isn’t totally up yet, but I would like to talk about it anyway.
I have often thought about how mental health is a big problem all around the world, and how facilities for it are pretty non-existent in 3rd world countries. I have grown up in Pakistan and can tell you that not only is it difficult to get help, but it is pretty much a big taboo having one of these illnesses.
So, in the spirit of that, I started PakTherapy.com. The idea is to inspire some help and awareness for the people of Pakistan. The beauty of the internet is that it isn’t just restricted to Pakistan though. I have put up some online resources, and some helpful articles. I have also put up some links to people local to Pakistan and UAE who can provide help.
So, what can you do or what does this have to do with you? Rather simple really. If you have something bugging you or nagging you, hit reply and we would love to help you. If you are the helpful sort and know somebody who can help, please give us a shout. If you are somebody qualified to help, we would love to get some feedback from you.
In other news, OxGadgets has been doing reasonably well, and as Christmas season approaches, we will be running some giveaways. The purpose is to give something back to all of you wonderful people. Some cool stuff is lined up already!
And then there are the weird and wonderful gadgets, for those of you who signed up for nerdy reasons. You have the upcoming iPhone X, which features a funny notch. You have the Huawei Mate 10, which can distinguish between a cat and a dog. You also have the new Pixel X phone which seems to be struggling with some screen issues.
Oh, also, I reviewed one of the coolest food waste solutions I have found yet.
Anyway, here is some pretty quick invasion into your very busy inbox lives. Would you like more of this? None? Any? Do you prefer cats in newsletters? Because I have got plenty of that too!
Adios for now! Keen to hear back 🙂
