Salesforce Certified Community Cloud Consultant Exam Tips

I’ve decided to have a little break from architecture exams and take on something quite interesting and useful. Chris and I set ourselves a target to pass the Community Cloud certification together and booked our exams for the same day, one after the other. While Chris has practical experience of setting up a Salesforce community, as he is currently working on implementing one at work, I have never implemented one; I’ve just been involved in the design discussions at a very early stage. This makes for an interesting challenge!

The Salesforce Community and Motherhood Clash

This morning I had a conversation with a man, concerning work and Salesforce-related events and how they stand with regards to family time. It was a simple chat, which stayed with me all day. I feel compelled to discuss it with you, dear reader, but first, I must paint you a picture.

How Chris and I used Salesforce to help with mental health

You’re going to think I’m totally pathetic for writing about this!!! For those of you who know me, you probably know that I’m lucky enough to have a job that doubles up as a hobby. I’ve been working as a Salesforce consultant for the last 9.5 years and that it’s always been something I’ve enjoyed doing – it’s very flexible and has helped thousands of organisations around the world to become more efficient. Well, today I’m writing about how a skill I use for work has actually helped me with something OUTSIDE of work…and writing about this has also helped me to stop beating myself up about enjoying it. Why shouldn’t I enjoy it?

“When our two souls stand up erect and strong…”

We had a lot of fun this evening, going through the script for our wedding. Giggles galore. And now I just want to take this very clean, respectful script and be a completely immature and disrespectful bastard about it; we certainly had way too much fun doing that. Behold the cut down offensive version in all its glory. Easily offended? Stop reading. It’s going to be weird.

Fairy Mail

Mollie got this little fairy postbox for Christmas and it’s actually proving to be quite a cute yet educational tool for helping her to learn to write. We’ve done two letters to date. The cutest thing is that whilst Mollie is learning to read and write via phonics, her spelling is very much in line with how things sound (for reasons that should be obvious).

Healthy (not dry / wet!) January

Share This:

I don’t usually partake in silly things like dry January, detoxes, fad diets and such. In fact, I have been known on occasion to scorn these types of things, seeing them as the unnecessary and unrealistic setting of unachievable standards. The rebellious side of me (completely without a cause, as usual) doesn’t always like putting names onto things; “I’m on a diet” seems a bit too much like a Thing, and much less like an ongoing lifestyle choice. But then just to completely contradict myself, knowing that I have gotten a little on the big side in the last year; I’ve actually gone on a Diet to make me Healthy.

First week of school [x]

Phew…the first week of total complete routine change is now in the bag. How does Mollie think her first week of school went? “Good.” (Well that’s good). Her favourite thing? The tablets she got to play with in class that are exactly like the one she has at home. While many of the new reception kids are flat out this week, Molls is still blithely chatting away at 8:30pm and still wants to eat bananas till I’m meant to be in the sack myself. Dunno where she gets the energy. Dunno how I can get this kid to sleep, short of grabbing a mallet!
