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

Your favourite place to blog? Getting my creative juices flowing
