Daily Selfie App Didn’t Survive iPhone Upgrade, Time to Rethink Priorities

Daily Selfie App Didn’t Survive iPhone Upgrade, Time to Rethink Priorities I’ve been using Everyday.app on my iPhones since April 2011, using it to grab a daily selfie that could be used to create time-elapse videos. This was something that I began, in part, because these videos disproved something that I was accused of many years ago, that I only published flattering photos of myself … Continue reading Daily Selfie App Didn’t Survive iPhone Upgrade, Time to Rethink Priorities

Blog Reunification/Relaunch as joebustillos.com

Blog Reunification/Relaunch as joebustillos.com I used to think that it was a problem that I could never narrow down my writing or my blog posts to one subject. I mean, I know that I cringe when the tech podcasters I follow venture into areas outside their expertise. Alas, having experimented with separating my many interests into separate blogs, I find treating these things as separate … Continue reading Blog Reunification/Relaunch as joebustillos.com

Monday Morning Reflections & Renewal

Nothing represents new beginnings for me as much as Monday mornings. Or maybe I’m just being influenced by the changing weather/seasons and the approach of Spring Break almost immediately followed by Summer Break. It’s all one giant RESET button for me, right now. I’m thinking what do I have to get done right now, what do I have to get done this week, what can … Continue reading Monday Morning Reflections & Renewal

It’s Not Supposed To Be This Difficult – Blogging in 2015

Part 1 – 2015-11-03 I think I got bored over the summer and decided that I wanted to go from the relatively inexpensive WordPress.com to the extremely customizable “self-hosted” version of WordPress (the version used by WP gurus and whole businesses built on supporting/creating these sites…). Since then I’ve “duplicated” the main blog, though there were about 1,000 posts that didn’t seem to make the … Continue reading It’s Not Supposed To Be This Difficult – Blogging in 2015

Portfolio v Posts v Pages in WordPress

2015-08-13_academic-portfolio-mindmap Remember what I said the other day about not having the time or energy to be working on my blog? Yeah, I lied. Having scanned in over 30-years of papers, projects and school notes and over 50-years of photos, I’m attempting to be a lot more systematic on how things get posted/shared. After looking over dozens of themes, I thought that I might pull … Continue reading Portfolio v Posts v Pages in WordPress

WordPress.ORG or WordPress.COM

2015-08-12_wordpress-org-error Last week I bit the bullet and signed up for an account with DreamHost so that I can move my blog(s) from the free WordPress.com hosting to a self-hosting site. It’s been a bumpy road. I’m not entirely sure that it’s worth the hassle. 2015-08-12 8:45am I’m now getting an error message: “A problem occurred with this webpage so it was reloaded” And the … Continue reading WordPress.ORG or WordPress.COM

The Right Tool for the Right Job: iBooks Author & Other Book Writing Tools

Several months ago my coworkers and I were looking into how we might use iBooks Author with our students and after completing some training I started considering which of my writing projects might work well with the app. I was also inspired to do some serious writing because I had been attending the monthly meetings of the Orlando Indie Authors group and left every session … Continue reading The Right Tool for the Right Job: iBooks Author & Other Book Writing Tools

WordPress, Flattened Expectations & Who Really Visits Your Blog

A couple weeks ago I went to a meeting of my local WordPress (support) group and one of the talks was on upcoming web trends that we needed to pay attention to. Oh boy, my head was swimming in a matter of minutes. Here are the bullet points to the talk: WP Trends 2014: Flat Design a la iOS 7 HTML5 video Show AND Tell … Continue reading WordPress, Flattened Expectations & Who Really Visits Your Blog
