Blog

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

My Posts on blogging

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 […]

You don’t blog anymore, do you?

As a good web developer ought to do, I run sporadic checks on broken or obsolete links in my blog by analysing my error logs in Google Webmasters Tool. So it went that one of the pages reporting many invalid links was one of my posts about Sabahan bloggers gathering […]

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 […]

On blogging again and redefining web development

I’m back on my blog (yeah, right)! My last post was on September 2014. For someone who claims to love blogging, a year’s gap between blog posts sure doesn’t look like I walk the talk. The usual excuses apply. I don’t regret not updating my blog one bit. However, all […]

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 […]

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: okay, I’m in

I’ve given myself all sorts of excuses for not blogging more often. My favourite excuse is that I don’t have a mobile device good enough for me to use and blog in a mobile manner. I had a netbook three years ago, which made blogging a little bit easier on […]

To blog or not to blog, that is the question

Now that I own a smartphone with broadband capabilities, blogging from anywhere and at anytime should be a cinch. Shouldn’t it? And yet, this is the second time that I’ve missed my blogging deadline for the PostAWeek challenge. So here I am, sitting and having my favorite lunch of toast […]

Your favourite place to blog? Getting my creative juices flowing

As I’m typing this post, I am sitting drinking milk tea and munching on crunchy toasted bread in my favourite cheap cafe. I have learned early on that it is a hopeless endeavour to try and blog at home. My kids would jump onto (and on) my lap, expecting me […]

WordPress PostADay Challenge: are you game?

I know that the original challenge is intended for WordPress.com users, but, hey, it doesn’t hurt to join in the fun. I’ve done a 30-day blog challenge before, so I know how difficult it can be for some of us to keep up. It’s not so much because we’re out […]

WebGrrrl.net now an URL shortener with YOURLS

My penchant for using long titles in my blog posts, and my now active involvement in all things Facebook and Twitter, drove me to install this nifty but challenging plugin called YOURLS. I took for granted that this was going to be one of those normal WordPress plugins you get […]

A personal discourse on blogging

*This may or may not be based on a true story* Late 2006 Person: What’s that? *pointing at my computer monitor* Me: Another web site I just made. It’s called a blog. Person: *blank face* Me: Just another online site for me to rant my stuff. And I finally got […]
