If you are a blogger on WordPress, then I’m sure you noticed that well over a year ago, this new thing called the Block Editor arrived. So began the push against the old-school, I mean ‘classic’, editor. I resisted; you probably did too. But I knew it was futile, like telling the Borg to leave you alone. So here I am, being assimilated to the blocks. Continue reading Unblocking The Block Editor
Okay, I did something that might be a little bit daunting. I signed up for this year’s NaNoWriMo event in November! It’s official. Also, it is exciting and kind of crazy. But what’s the point of dreams if you never go for’em? Continue reading My 20,000 NaNoWriMo Goal
I’ve been exploring the real world of creating fake worlds – fiction. Like seeking fireflies at night, I dream of writing a book someday.

Continue reading Moonshots Of Lego
For the love of Lego! The simple and wonderfully designed building blocks have been part of me since I was a young kid. And to this day, I still get my kicks with Lego bricks! Continue reading Geeking Out On Lego
Like death by a thousand cuts, nobody likes to feel nickeled and dimed by numerous subscription payments seeping from their bank account every single month. I wrote against subs recently. Today, I’m writing for subs. Continue reading Are App Subscriptions Suboptimal?
A few months back, I found myself in unusual circumstances. I was able to get a lot of writing done. And it led me to schedule many blog posts. I even found my brain more apt to write most of the time – my writing muscles were flexed. Then life kinda happened. Now I’m struggling to find time, make time, to type stuff up.
