In my younger years, a classic novel that grabbed my imagination was Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe. Surviving on an island after shipwreck, saving a cannibal’s life from others, and making whatever he needed from what was available.
Recycled paper with colored threads, thick defined soft pages between your fingers, easy tear, and colored pencils or crayons. By the number, bold black lines, thin gray lines, faint lines, patterns, and nature. The makings of a coloring book. Continue reading “Coloring Books”
This is a journey, a new one at that. First, an interest in static site generators as I’ve written about, then I wanted to build my own site using just PHP (with HTML/CSS/JS) and Markdown. But after researching for a new project then but not anymore, I found many of these static sites built with PHP, like how I envisioned it, to already exist and had I not opened this door, I would not have discovered them.

In ten years, I had created too many blogs. Some were personal, some anonymous, some creative and this blog was technical. At first, it was to separate Continue reading “Stretching is Unproductive”
There are two static site generators that have caught my imagination: Jekyll and Hugo. Jekyll keeps getting better and can be hosted on GitHub Pages. GitHub made Jekyll. Hugo does well with large sites that need faster build generation of their pages, it’s more customizable for links and widgets, it can check for newly-edited files and generate only them, and the theme can be separated from the code like WordPress. I’ve used WordPress for a long time and I’m passionate about that but lately the idea of self-hosting it weighs heavy on my current budget. Continue reading “Entertaining Static Site Generators”
These are steps I take when troubleshooting a G Suite (Google Apps previously) email sending issue. At first, ten plus years ago, a Google Apps account could be set up for free for up to 50 users, then it became a paid solution, and SPAM became more of a problem so the setup process moved from an easy setup to learning everything about email routing and servers. Continue reading “How To Get Started Troubleshooting G Suite Email Routing”
Is it really my photography?
There are days that when I post a photo, I get many compliments about how good it looked and others tell me that I do well. On those days, I don’t see my photography as something that I did. It feels as if I’m holding on to someone else’s work and getting all the credit for it. Continue reading “Wow! You took that?!”
I’ve been sick as a dog since Sunday (28-Dec-2014) with a sore throat and cold. I hardly want to talk because it hurts and when I do talk (would prefer not to), my voice is full bass and staggered/monotone so I don’t cough. I chose a simple project because thinking hard was too much for this sick dog.
This year, I’ve been spending more time on myself. Filling in the cracks to the knowledge that I already have building sites with Search Engine Optimization (SEO) structures. Encouraging my clients to follow the basics of SEO that I’ve written about already. Continue reading “SEO, Marketing and Web Programming, Oh My!”
Stay with me, photography as a hobby or a profession can be lots of fun. I enjoy the time I spend with other photographers or by myself out there in nature. Taking photo tours locally with them and discovering new scenes. How is it irritating you might wonder, well here’s my reason for bringing this to your attention. I’m using that word’s definition to rid the mediocre in me. Continue reading “Photography—It’s Irritating”
