Jumping in to say that a personal travel rule I’ve had for myself some years now is that I will never, ever fly out of EWR (I’m a JFK loyalist now). It’s been a great decision! But nuts and bolts, if you do fly into Newark, you’ll end up spending more time and money getting into the city— you either have to take Read more

For instance, if I use Twitter for work purposes, but prefer to keep Facebook and Instagram strictly to non-work friends and family? I often feel rude, but also don’t want random sources I’ve talked to over the Read more
