Blogging Again

I’ve been blogging for many years now (since 1998). These articles/posts are new (2019). I’ve always been quite the perfectionist with posting articles which has alway been a bottleneck with getting posts completed and published. This time around, I’m going to focus on writing in segments (topics), publishing quickly, and making edits here-and-there.

I’ve worked with/on many different blogging systems. This blog is running on WordPress (self-hosted), with GeneratePress (child theme), and zero (0) front-end plugins. Yup, that’s right, zero front-end plugins. The theme design (look/feel) is done through the WordPress customizer and custom HTML/CSS/JavaScript.

Keeping It Simple

While I have managed, designed, and developed many websites for startups, agencies, corporate, and SMB I’ve decided to keep my this website simplistic (look/feel) and uncluttered (no ads, no fluff features).

I’ve seen so many projects (websites/apps) get overwhelmed by the design alone. This website is my personal blog for expressing my professional opinions and career experiences, so my focus is primarily on the content.


My career in the web industry spans 24 years (since 1995). I started my career in web as a self-learned web developer (back then called a “Webmaster”), to an award-winning Engineer, to a Web Manager, to a Director, to a CTO, to a successful startup CEO, now a freelance Consultant.

I’ve worked in corporate, agencies, startups, and SMB. I’ll be blogging on these 34 topics which are inline with my professional experience; 24 years (300+ projects / 700+ websites).
