Based on some prompting by Hugh I applied as a speaker at PHPSouthAfrica this year. Apparently they still don’t know how little I actually know as they accepted my talk submission 😉 I’ll be talking just after afternoon tea about a topic that has been on my mind since 2010, that of the common perception… Continue reading Taking back ownership of the word ‘freelancer’
Tonight I’m speaking at the WordPress Cape Town Meetup about the pros and cons of working from home and what you can do to create your perfect work from home space. Here are the slides from that talk.
This coming weekend I will be taking part in the 24 hour roll-a-thon at Gracie Jiu Jitu Cape Town, raising funds for cancer sufferers/survivors and a local hospice. If I’m honest though, the main reason I am doing this is my jiu jitsu buddy, Juan Poerstamper. Juan has been dealing with Cancer since around 2012.… Continue reading 2017 24 Hour Roll-a-thon fund raiser
I remember the first time I read about Jerry Seinfeld’s productivity secret. At the time it seemed trivial, but after trying to write a blog post per day for the month of September using Gutenberg, and then failing miserably at it, I can admit to the fact that planning to write something every day and… Continue reading Gutenberg day ??? – well that was hard!

I feel like it’s small enough that I can get something done by the time the next release rolls around but useful enough that it will make peoples lives easier.

I've got some great interviews coming up, but… Continue reading Gutenberg day 7 – New things
Just a short blog post I don't quite feel like writing So, here's a haiku.
So for today's blog post I thought I would try Gutenberg on my mobile. I have to say it works pretty well. If I'm honest with myself though, not really pushing the limits of Gutenberg so tomorrow I want to try and create something more complex.
Today was a my first day in my new office space. Since becoming fully self employed at the beginning of 2016 I've been working mostly from home on a day to day basis. This has led to a few frustrating moments, although based on what I've seen I'm pretty sure I'm not alone in this.… Continue reading Gutenberg day 4 – New things
Who knew? I often come up with ideas and jump into them without thinking. This has been both a blessing and curse over the past 40 years of my life. This idea to blog every day for September using Gutenberg was probably just as mad, as by the time I get to the end of… Continue reading Gutenberg day 3 – Blogging every day is hard!
