Finding my why

Even though I am sick this week, I passed through the inaugural Caribbean Bloggers’ Week event being held in Kingston tonight. I didn’t stay for the whole thing, but I was able to catch the start of the panel discussion. After the content creators (bloggers, instagrammers, podcasters…) introduced themselves and their platform, the discussion moved…

Blindsided by breaks

It seems every so often I find myself facing the reality that I have completely abandoned writing though I know how much it means to me. I had no idea that nearly six months had passed since I last wrote. Of course, there are a few reasons for my absence. I’ve been doing some freelance…

WordPress Survey Time

In my last post, announcing my WordPress services business, I talked about becoming more involved in the WordPress community. In the WordPress After Hours hangout, I was asked about the WP community in Jamaica. And while I know there are many sites built locally on WordPress, I don’t actually know many of the people building…

Writing as therapy

There is no question, to my mind, that writing is a good thing. If you have read much of what I’ve written then you realize how much of myself comes across in my writing. I pour out the feelings and emotions that inspire the writing, whether they be joy, excitement, anticipation, or sorrow, loneliness, despair.…

All the nuts and bolts

So if you’d visited my site in the past, then you know that it is quite different. I decided I needed a whole new re-do to help invigorate my return to blogging. The biggest difference is not even one that’s very visible as it has to do with the underlying infrastructure. The more astute may…

I’m back, baby!

Feels like we’ve been here before. I blog, then I disappear and then I reappear with apologies. So yes, I’m doing the apology thing again. When last I wrote, I was doing some in depth reviews of my time in Italy at the techPEAKS accelerator. I had a couple more posts planned and then life…

The whisper of a Ghost

Finding (more like making) time to write consistently

One of the biggest challenges in blogging is writing consistently. Even though I have been blogging for years, I am only now starting to get my groove. I am developing a daily writing habit, somewhat kickstarted by my recent road trip. I have some other ideas for blogging consistently to share.

But I don’t know how to set up a blog

If you are looking to start a blog, my advice is just start! You can start for free at most hosted platforms. And if you’re feeling like taking more control then hosting it yourself is not as scary as it seems. My first tip is think through exactly what you want to have on site both in terms of how you might want it to look and how you might want it to work. That way you will know what you need.

Leaping back in

After months of snail’s pace progress in getting my blog back up and running and getting myself back to writing, I found my impetus – Leap  Day! I won’t go into the astronomical reasons for the ‘extra day’ every four years, nor will I revisit the silly superstitions about leaplings, nor the funny traditions that…
