Thanks to my friend and colleague, Liliana, she invited me to try focusmate. It changed the way I work, as I sometimes can get distracted by all the interesting information available online.

What is Focusmate?

Focusmate is a service that helps people with accountability and procrastination. The service works by letting you book a 50-minute appointment, where you are partnered with someone anywhere across the world. Both of you meet at that time, talk about what you’re going to do for a minute, then start working. After the session, you both talk about how you did, then you move on your merry way.
The platform uses Jitsi – a video conferencing open-source platform. Jitsi has features such as sharing youtube videos, screensharing, and many others.

Reasons why people want to blur their background

a – they have a messy room
b – confidential information is shown on another computer behind them
c – people don’t want their partners to get distracted by the people walking around them (if in a library or other public place)
d – they general privacy concerns
I usually blur my background because I get too self-conscious. I get too self-conscious to where I don’t do what I’m supposed to be doing, and turning off my camera is rude to my partner.

How to Blur your background

Many have asked me this question so I decided to create a blog post about it.
There is a way where you can blur the background so that your face is the only thing that’s viewable.


1 – While in a session, scroll to the bottom of the screen and press the button with 3 dots on it.

2 – Click on “Blur my background”.
If it doesn’t work the first time, turn your camera off then turn it back on.
As of this moment, the platform is free up until September 26, 2019. After that, the pricing will be $6/person with unlimited sessions.

If you’re a part of some influencer campaigns, you might need to post on Facebook using your page or social media profile. After doing this, the company might request for you to submit the URL of that post. But how do you get the Facebook post URL? Facebook has become cluttered with all the Ads, but finding the post URL is not hard.


How to find a Facebook post’s URL

  1. Find the post on your Facebook account.
  2. Click on the timestamp below your name or your Facebook page’s name.
  3. Copy the post URL shown in your address bar.


Here is a GIF I made:

I couldn’t find a tutorial on how to find the Facebook post URL, so I wrote this. I used to participate in one of Blogher‘s influencer campaigns, and that’s how I found out about this information.

Did this blog post help you? Besides submitting the post URL to Influencer campaigns, what else have you done to need to get the post URL of a Facebook post? Let me know in the comments below.

Your IP address is basically the address of your computer/router. IP stands for internet protocol and its format is usually a string of numbers and letters. An IP address is used whenever a computer is connected to the internet so that the web knows where to transfer the information to. It’s basically similar to your home address. Currently, there are two versions: IPv4 and IPv6. To put it into simple terms, IPv4 is a lot shorter than IPv6. Since more and more computers are being bought and used, IPv6 is preferred because it is newer technology.

Now we may need to get our IP address for numerous reasons. Below are the steps on how you can do that.


Option 1: Google it.

Simply typing “What is my IP address” in the google search bar will give you an answer. It will look something like this:

ip address google

The example above shows an IP in IPv6.


Option 2: What’s my IP address website

Go to, and it will automatically load your IP address in both IPv4 and IPv6 format. It will look something like this:

whats my ip address


The site has some ads for it, and that’s because this service is free. This information will be in the middle of the page so don’t miss it. There are many other websites out there that can show you what your IP address is. I just showed two popular ways.

There you have it, the steps on how to obtain your IP address. Mind you, IP address changes so don’t tattoo this on your arm. A simple reboot of your router can change this, or you can call your internet service provider (ISP) to change it for you. If this tutorial helped, leave a comment a below!
