So I recently announced that I started as a front end developer with Crowd Favorite, a super awesome WordPress agency. I’m just starting week three of my journey at Crowd Favorite and it has been an awesome journey thus far. But I had several realizations last week as I was jumping into my first client project with […]
March, for me, was both an exciting and a disastrous month. I turned 26. I blogged a total of 10 times out of 22 week days. I joined Crowd Favorite as a front end developer. I was sick not once but twice. But I’m moving past it. I’ve celebrated the wins and now I’m moving […]
I finally did it. I joined Crowd Favorite and the quickly growing percentage of the work force that is working remotely. Telecommuting. Working from home. There are many ways to describe it. But I’ve done it. My first brush with remote work was in 2011 when I was lucky enough to be allowed to work […]
Long term projects are hard. For instance, at my current job, I’ve been on the same project for almost a year now. I’ve had smaller projects in that time, but for the most part, I’ve been working on our agency’s website redesign for a year. I’ve redeveloped a single page template twelve times. TWELVE. Staying […]

Lately, I have been having discussions with my boss about distractions and how to overcome them and the sensory overload that goes along with our new office space. We recently moved into a new building. They are some pretty sweet digs. But we also switched from cubicles to bench seating. You can check out the […]
As I sat down to write this morning, it occurred to me that I haven’t set any blogging goals lately. I have my yearly goal of blogging every weekday, but I haven’t set any short term goals. While I believe I’m doing fairly well in my commitment to blog, I’d love to start hitting some specific […]
While February is not quite over yet, I believe now is a good time to look back and take stock of the past two months.
I attended a meet up last night. To be honest, I wasn’t sure I would go at first. But I felt good and wasn’t as tired as I normally am after work and decided to make the effort. I’m glad I did.
One of my favorite things about WordPress is its community. The community is welcoming, self-regulating, and massive. But it isn’t the only community that I am a part of. I have community at work, at church and across the nation. All of these communities are ones that I invest different levels of time and energy […]
