I remember several years ago, when I had a “normal” job, completing computer updates and upgrades gave me a sense of accomplishment. After all, making sure all my systems where up to date and running smooth was not only a part of my job, but insured I could fulfill my other duties well.
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?
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.
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.
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.
