Visitors

Where are all my visitors? It’s been nine days since my last post. A big disappointment for me personally as I challenged myself earlier in the year to keep writing – regularly. It all started with the 10 Days to a Better Blog! challenge courtesy of John Saddington at Desk.pm. The usual things have been…

Short Stories

It’s been a week since I last wrote something… There was no shortage of topics, just never sat down and put ink to paper. The Tesla – it happened while heading back to the hotel after a long day at work – turning left onto a busy street. There was a brand new Tesla on…

Change is Good

Change is good, in fact, change is necessary… for me at least. I love change, get quite excited when I see updates to APPs on any of my iOS devices or to web services. Sometimes the changes are subtle but every now and then you get a big one. The look and feel changes, new…

Missed my Window

To Post or Not to Post… Had an interesting story to share today but felt it was a little too late to post. Planned to post by 9 am but got tied up in a meeting, 10 am rolled around but I was at one of our other offices, away from my computer. Pretty soon…

No Post Today

‘P’ for Post I decided to take a break from writing, I’m too busy, no fresh ideas, it’s Wednesday, my coffee is ready, whatever… I have lots of excuses. When I woke up this morning I walked into the kitchen and noticed there were only a few date squares left and was going to write…

Failed Posts

Blog Editor Review – Part II

UPDATE: as sometimes happens with posts, I didn’t do the research properly. Turns out there are ratings for this product and the recent upgrade skewed the results. I thought it odd but didn’t dig into it, let that be a lesson… to me. You’ll remember from my earlier post, Blog Editor Review – Part I,…

Blog Editor Review – Part I

I was looking for a simple editor to work on my blogs offline. Hopefully helping with my commitment to blogging in 2015. The WordPress editor is OK but requires access and patience. I started researching available ‘editors’ for my Mac. I realized quickly that there were text editors geared towards bloggers and my search moved…

One of the 8%

For the last three years I have resolved to do two things; blog more frequently and improve my photograhpy skills. Succeeded in neither. Statistics show the top three resolutions for 2014 to be: Lose weight Getting organized Spend less, save more 45% of Americans usually make New Year’s Resolutions while 8% successfully achieve them. See…

To host or not to host.

I’ve been under a lot of pressure lately to post my blog on a competing service… by my son.  He is an avid blogger on Squarespace’s platform (see joshgrignon.com). I looked at Squarespace and was impressed but being thorough, figured I’d check what some of the other hosting services have to offer. I currently have…
