    Adorable Scrungy cat found on Reddit

    I was browsing through Reddit for some inspiration to post to my blog, and I found this super cute scrungy cat. They turned it into some retro artwork that looks amazing! Hopefully, you agree. Find the original post here. Also, this is the first time I’ve shared a Reddit post that I’ve enjoyed. Would you […]

    A list of my favourite content creators

    This will be a living, breathing document of every person I gather useful information from. It will be for readers to hopefully find new people with who they can connect.

  • A new way to support my blog

    A new way to support my blog

    Over the past week, I decided to sign up to Ko-Fi and create a profile. It gives you a way to support me for what I do. Also, I can also reward you for supporting me. Over the week, my rewards evolved. You can buy me a coffee for as little as £3 and get […]

  • Restarting my Podcast

    Restarting my Podcast

    You probably don’t know I had a podcast because I never posted it on my blog. However, I was podcasting late last year, and took a break. I have now restarted the podcast series, and I have already release a handful of episodes. If you would like to give it a listen, you can click […]

  • Completing Murph for Remembrance Day

    Completing Murph for Remembrance Day

    Monday was a bank holiday for us in the UK, and in Crossfit, we perform Murph this time of year to remember those who fought for us. CrossFit is primarily an American sport, and it’s to remember Murph, a Navy who got killed during his time fighting in Afghanistan. Those outside of the US always […]

  • Goodbye May, Hello Hot June 2021

    Goodbye May, Hello Hot June 2021

    May was a good month for me. I celebrated my 30th birthday and saw my mum at the same time. We hadn’t seen each other in over a year because of COVID, so it was really nice to finally surprise each other. Toward the end of the month, our government started to open up pubs […]

    Sometimes you need to move backwards in order to move forward

    Starting at the beginning I’ve been thinking about writing this post for a while, but I was waiting for the right time. When I first started as a website developer, I landed my first job, which I expected to be a junior role. It was at a junior salary, but they were looking for someone […]

  • Closing a business isn’t failing, it’s a reason to celebrate

    Closing a business isn’t failing, it’s a reason to celebrate

    This year, both my wife and I have closed our businesses, and for very different reasons. My wife has closed her pet sitting business because COVID has negatively affected it. I closed mine because I don’t want to carry on as a contractor/freelancer. I’m going back to permanent work, and my wife was using hers […]

  • Working out with sore muscles

    Working out with sore muscles

    When you’re working out, it’s obvious you will get sore muscles. Your muscles are generally more sore when you take a big break or you have never worked out before. It’s also easy to stop working out at the first sign of sore muscles. I’ve been guilty of doing this in the past, and I […]

  • Being added to PHPNews

    Being added to PHPNews

    It’s kind of funny because when I started this blog, I was writing PHP tutorials. This is because I am a PHP developer. If there was something I was stuck on and I had to piece information together, I would bundle it up and turn it into a blog post. This was mainly so if […]
