  • Reflections on My 30 Post Challenge

    On February 13th, 2016, I published a blog post only to suddenly disappear from my blog without warning for 1.5 years.

  • My Failed Attempt of Learning Android

    Back when I was new on Fiverr as a freelancer, I was trying to think of ideas for other gigs.

  • My Brief Experience Hiring Virtual Assistants

    Back when I had my hands full juggling a lot of active websites, a number of people suggested that I hire a VA, or virtual assistant, to help me with menial tasks so that I could focus on the bigger picture.
