I often share about WordPress, web development, technology, and the digital life.

Blogging on the blockchain

I’ve been blogging exclusively at Steemit.com for the past two weeks, every day save for a couple of days. I even ended up making my first vlog. Well, sort of vlog, because it was partly me vlogging, and partly me going kara-zy on Smule. The vlog was meant to be […]

Celebrating the little wins: WebGrrrl.net is 10. Ish.

Holy crikey, how could I have almost missed this? Technically, this website is days to being 11 years old, but a decade sounds nicer (sounding a year younger doesn’t hurt, either). This is what happens to me for not being a big fan of observing rituals like birthdays and religious […]

Going nostalgic; “restoring” my old website at Tripod and Geocities

I sometimes back up and sort out files in my computer as a symbol of my need to sort my scatterbrain. It’s my way of procrastinating what actually needs to be done. When I retired my old sites at Tripod (and earlier on at Geocities), I didn’t actually delete any file […]

My blog management strategies for 2016

I’m excited to start off this year with a renewed motivation to blog as much as possible. The past few years have been challenging for me on the blogging front, which I found surprising since I have never been more productive in my life. Everything took a drastic turn since […]

Next time, don’t spam the comments

Yeah, just because my Google pagerank is 4 (which may be measly to a few, but not too bad to many people), doesn’t mean that this is a perfect place for you to spam on my blog comments. And you’re not being smart, either, if you think that gaming the […]

Trying out Medium

I’ve just created my first post on Medium, and the experience is wonderful. It’s almost like what I would imagine it to be like with Ghost, although to be honest I’ve never tried the latter. Too bad I can’t post via a smartphone. I don’t see a mobile app for […]

I’m so glad I subscribe to my own feed

… because, yes, I’ve been hacked. Thanks, whoever you are, from Japan. THANK YOU FRACKING MUCH. My last clean back up was in early April this year. Guess when I started actively blogging again? Late April, that’s when. Great. What I’m doing now is painstakingly copying and pasting the other […]

I finally found a question I can answer on Quora

And Marc Bodnick upvoted it. Ngah-ngah-ngah *speechless*. Read Quote of Lorna Timbah’s answer to College and University Students: What are the most surprising things encountered by a foreign student going to the US for the first time? on Quora

Awesome-est text troll stories

… can be found at one of Quora’s posts. Quora is easily becoming my favourite time-wasting online spot. Quora makes me laugh, cry, wonder in amazement, and does wonderful things to my heart and brain. Back to the story at hand, when asked “What are some of the funniest text […]

Speedy Gonzales, or a slow poke: how fast can you blog?

Years ago, while reading a blog post by Lilian Chan a.k.a. 5xmom, she mentioned almost at the end of her post about how she could create a blog post of approximately 700 words in just 15 minutes. At first I mentally shrugged and thought, sure, I can do that, *duh*. […]

30-Day Blogging Challenge Day 9: A picture of my best friend

Meh. I moved school so much, so I don’t really have one that sticks to me. I do have a select group of close friends over the years, but I don’t have one that I would pinpoint as being special. All of them are especially great. So no. No picture. […]

30-Day Blogging Challenge Day 2: Meaning behind my blog name

Hah, this is easy. I’ve been using this handle online since 2000, so obviously that would be my name of choice when selecting my blog and domain names, other than reflecting my love for anything concerning the Web. I didn’t want to blog under my namesake because it would seem […]
