Creating events calendar and updating status page

I have now created an events page. You will be able to keep up to date with all of my events, and talks. My plan is to do at least 3 fundraising events this year, and with social media hiding lots of content, I thought it would be easier to add it here. You can head on over to Events, as well as look at the sidebar. Some events will be TBC until more details are confirmed, and others will be there straight away.

Blue Monday and National Hug Day

Today is apparently blue Monday (I say apparently because of this post). It is also National Hug Day which is a better thing to celebrate. Our workplace decided to celebrate both days anyway, and we came in wearing blue and ready to hug anyone who was willing.

Challenging myself continued...

In November, I created a post on challenging myself and connecting with other bloggers (read here). Firstly, my mission was to start conversations with other blogs (or bloggers) that aren't on Medium (read why) I feel like the challenge is going well, and I've started to create stronger relationships with fellow bloggers. My friend Eric L Barnes shared his RSS list which gave me a good head start.

Challenging myself

Something I would like to try out for this month is post less on social media (excluding Instagram) and post more on WordPress. I rarely spend time posting to social anyway, but it could be interesting. Even if it's just comments on other people's blogs.

A brave new world

My wife will be leaving her place of work this week to go on her own adventure and creating her own pet sitting business. She is very scared and nervous, but I keep reassuring her that everything will be okay and if it doesn't work out, we can move on to something else.

Docker has been fun, but it's time to move on...

As a few of you may know, I have been using Docker for some time to deploy my site with. It's been a great learning experience for me and is something I wish to carry on with.
