New and improved website!

I’m happy to report the blog is new and improved, with a different web host, and more to see at first glance if you’re looking at it on desktop.

Unfortunately, the website is still in construction mode and will be for some time. The feature images and other graphics did not transfer over to the new theme, so they’ll need to be replaced. So will punctuation marks such as apostrophes, quotation marks, and dashes. Also, the classic editor won’t become the block editor on previous posts without a lot of work. You can imagine what I need to do, with more than 150 posts over the years!

In addition, I want to go over the right sidebar (which appears after the latest bunch of posts on mobile), where I already added links for the latest on Coronavirus (and others on, and the generic “about” pages. Please keep in mind the list you just read is not complete.

I continue to appreciate you reading, and now also your patience. I enjoyed the look back in time, and started editing the latest posts, but please let me know if there’s any page in particular you want to see and I’ll get to it ASAP.

Thanks, and don’t forget to “spring forward” tonight. (Yes. We lose an hour of sleep! More bad news.)


About the author

The journalism “business” has changed — from standards to platforms to layoffs — along with the American public, and I’ve managed to survive somewhat on my own terms.

I started in 1994, becoming an award-winning and respected TV newscast producer.

Even better was creatively producing websites and social media, and serving as a station's digital media manager — writing news, creating graphics and getting evidence of growing my audience here in the nation's fourth largest market, Philadelphia.

I also taught first grade for eight years. My principal saw my class website and made me electronic gradebook manager to assist co-workers when we stopped using paper gradebooks.

In 2018, I took courses and earned the Google IT Support Professional Certificate.

In 2019, I was a freelance newspaper reporter, but enjoyed copy editing and reviving the publication’s social media even more.

That got me striking out on my own with a local news website to join the blog I created, designed and write.

Ask me about all the details.

I did drive Uber to make ends meet until I started as a customer service representative at one of the world’s largest web-hosting companies, with more than 8 million customer contracts and hosting more than 12 million domains.

With classroom and newsroom experience, I know how to prioritize, analyze and take the best course of action. Getting results means attention to detail, following through and following up.
