Recently I’ve been re-inspired with the whole concept of community. Whilst it’s always been in my heart, it’s easy to let life overflow with other things. I’ve always enjoyed software testing, but the ability to create a community is really what has continually sparked my fire. I’m currently really enjoy reading The Art of Gathering.
I have a problem in that I like to help people out. Of course, that’s not really a problem in itself. It’s when the lack of balance comes. Where I put other people’s needs before my own. Mothers can easily identify with this. Mothers always come last. Entrepreneurs know this too. It’s often a lonely
I’ve slowly been getting my writing mojo back. 2018 was a lot about tidying stuff up in my digital life. Life was a bit mad for a few years and I didn’t get the chance to mentally or physically clear up the mess. Whilst I’m still not back at writing proper articles, I feel myself
I enjoy not celebrating Christmas. Not getting caught up in the hustle of it all allows me to have a bit of clear head space to think about the upcoming year. I don’t do goals, but there are things I would like to keep plugging away at in 2019… Run + exercise more I ran
I’m not much of a talker, but if I start a podcast I’ll be looking to use TransistorFM. Why? Because it is built by honest people who care. People who try to build good things. People who know that money is needed to make things happen, but it is not their primary motivation. We need

End of the year is always great for reflection. I’m finding a bit of time for myself to do some tidying up of my things. Of course, tidying up is never really done. Not when you unschool 5 kids, have a business to run and a heart set on doing new things. Piper is now
This is emotional and tragic. (Stillbirth trigger warning). There is something inherently wrong if the biggest tech companies won’t or refuse to invest in building ethical tech. We’ve forgotten about the humanity. We’ve forgotten that all this tech is for people. And that people are complex beings who are not always trigger happy. We focus
Whilst I think social media is kinda amazing, I’m also kinda ‘whatever’ about it these days. As an introverted kinda person, and I guess as I get older and more cynical about things, I feel like blurting stuff out into the social web feels more and more like just shouting out something into a room
There comes a point, probably around the ‘3 kids’ mark, that when you go out somewhere, you find yourself counting the number of kids, constantly. This is what I felt last week. We went to a conference for the first time as a family. A short trip to Dublin, then Sligo where we stayed in
