I started this WordPress blog a long time ago with a simple goal – to jump start SEO on new web projects and add a few links to my work around the web.
Since then, it’s kind of morphed into a different project. I am working on a few active projects (Tech and Teaching, Digital Photography How To, and Olinda Gibbons Photography), but none of these are oriented around publishing, web design, or writing.
I often find that I want to share information – about publishing, about web design, about building WordPress sites, whatever – that doesn’t fit into any of these other projects. So, this blog fills that role.
On the one hand, I post every few days or once a week to summarize what I’ve worked on throughout the week. In terms of SEO, this is a way to drive traffic to these other properties by leveraging the community and tagging power of WordPress.
On the other hand, this is a meta-blog about blogging, where I can write about what has worked for me, what hasn’t, and give others advice. So hopefully I’ll share something useful for you.
And yes, this is a barebones, basic looking blog. I didn’t bother to self-host it or create a fancy design. I just wanted a place to write down some thoughts and share them – and I thought a minimalist design would be good for that.
