Personal thoughts and insights of Eric Dye.

  • Less Is More

    The last couple of weeks I’ve been really impressed with the concept of “less is more.”

    In a culture that thrives off more, having less has certainly become counter cultural – but it works.

    This is one of the reasons – in my opinion – Apple has historically done well. There are less options.

    So how does that play out in my own life?

  • Ironic

    The irony of being called a “professional blogger” is not lost on me.

    While many bloggers may let their personal blog turn into a wasteland of characters – as I have mine – I have seen the number of posts I publish around the web diminish beyond the “hobby blogger” and into the “blogger-wanna-be” realm.

    I have seen my career (seems like a generous term at times) take a number of curious turns these past several years.

  • It’s About Getting Things Done

    GTD.

    “Getting Things Done.”

    Not only is the GTD system popular, it’s a buzzword thrown around by productivity gurus.

    I like to get things done (who doesn’t?), so I’ve tried the official GTD system among many others.

  • My Favorite Free WordPress Plugins

    Last month (apparently I’m blogging here monthly now? That’s lame) I shared how I wanted to stop sponging off WordPress.

    After keeping up with my weekly ratings, reviews, and favorting (is that a word now?) for this past month, I am really happy with how everything has turned out. Not only do I feel better about using these plugins and all the warm fuzzy feelings, having my favorite free WordPress plugins all in one place is really handy.

  • I Stopped Sponging Off WordPress

    Back in March I finally filled-out my WordPress profile.

    After years of using free plugins and never leaving a rating, I decided I needed to change my ways.

    Rating plugins and leaving reviews is not only an important part of being a good Internet citizen, but also a helpful member of the WordPress community.

  • It’s About Time I Filled-Out My WordPress Profile

    Well it’s about stinkin’ time I did this.

    Internally I’m hanging my head in shame.

    But I admit it.

    I admit that I have used and abused the WordPress Plugin Directory and never, never left a rating or a review.
