About

I run a minimalist online business. I don’t want to work 40+ hours a week running an online business empire. I want time freedom.

My story

I started a hobby blog in 2004. My non-technical self was surprised to discover I enjoyed the technical parts of blogging much more than the writing part. After many please-help questions from other non-technical types, I quit my hobby blog and began teaching others how to start a blog. That was 2010.

Along the way, I tried other things too. I built and ran an online community (old school style, long before Facebook Groups) and provided client services including web design, coaching, consulting and virtual assistance.

In November 2020, after 10 years of accumulated blog posts, I cleaned things up. I streamlined and moved my key how-to posts to Website How To. I still write the Useletter® on Saturdays. It’s my main thing.
