      Online Teaching and Learning

        For some of my friends, Home Schooling was always a reality. For many of us, digital teaching aids were a way of supplementing what we considered below average teaching.

              Quo Vadis WordPress

                No matter how many websites you build, each one is different. Sticking to a script is not half as interesting as letting WordPress tell it’s own story, which is invariably what it does in each new website.

                Live Longer and Healthier – Read!

                  Even in our digital world, the simple act of reading is still the best way of getting information into our brain. Even the “young, smart, and digital” (but still flesh and blood) need to read – eventually.

                    Creating effective, relevant, and useful content that answers the needs of the users. This obvious need is not always self-evident, and I will be trying to combine adwords, analytics, and sales results with market trends on a week for week basis.
