Happy Monday, y’all! I’m almost completely moved into the new place, minus a few boxes in the bedroom. HOORAH. I hate moving. It is the worst. I will never, ever move without movers again. And now I’m mostly ready to tackle the week ahead. Making up for lost time as…

About the Instagram Shadow Ban

If you work in the same industry as myself I’m almost positive you’re aware of the Instagram Shadow Ban. But just in case, let me summarize; several accounts began to notice their posts not showing up under the hashtags they tagged their photos with. If you’re not familiar with how Instagram…

Work from Home
Productivity Hacks

I’m flying through my second year of blogging full-time here at The Kentucky Gent, and while working from home is great. It definitely has its disadvantages. Like general lack of an actual schedule. The ability to work from bed in your pajamas. Or never hitting the “off” switch. I’m guilty of…

In My Corner

Can’t believe I’ve been blogging at The Kentucky Gent for almost four years now – two of which have been full-time. CRAZY how time flies. I’ve learned a lot over the years, but I’m humble enough to admit that there’s still a lot left to learn. Actually, it’s one of my…

Last week was a doozy. I presented at my first ever conference and worried myself into a tizzy preparing for my presentation. But in typical Josh fashion I waited until the night before to put together the actual presentation. When I say I’m a pro at procrastinating, it’s not an…

Tax Time Tips

Running your own business is great, but it definitely comes with its fair share of challenges. For me the most daunting of those challenges is anything money related. Especially taxes.

Perfect Travel Companion

Once upon a time I had a love/hate relationship with audiobooks. I’m just old enough to have done all of my schooling with good ole fashion paper books and still have that love for turning the pages myself. Over the years though, my relationship with audiobooks has shifted to a very-loving…

Apartment Cleaning Made Easy

This post is sponsored by Dyson via Mode Media, but as always, all thoughts and opinions are my own. Let me start this off by coming out and saying that the whole time I’ve had my own apartment (going on five years now) I’ve not once owned a vacuum. Go…

Chill Out, It’s Just Instagram

Okay, by now it’s safe to say that everyone knows that Instagram is rolling out an update, reportedly within the week, that will turn what was once our beloved chronological feed into a feed based on an algorithm – similar to Facebook.  But it’s also safe to say that most…

Kindle Paperwhite

I’ve been holding off on jumping on the e-reader band wagon for a while now – call me old school, but there’s just something about holding a hardback book in my hand that I love. But when I had the chance to try out the All-New Amazon Kindle Paperwhite I…
