How are you staying sane during lockdown: WordPressers best tips!

H

Since the corona pandemic (COVID-19) has been announced 6 days ago many countries have gone into full lockdown. That means no cinema, no gym, no lunchtime coffee with friends. It also means working from home full time. For those of you who are used to remote work this is an easier adjustment, but you might have your children or partner (or both) at home. It’s crowded, it’s scary, and...

Idea for my talk The idea for my WordCamp Europe talk came from my personal research around careers, and thinking about what kind of career I am looking to build. WordPress is my first digital community, before working in WordPress, I was working as an...

Renaissance jobs in digital: What skills do you need to survive a 21st century career

R

Renaissance jobs, also otherwise known as hybrid roles are a mishmash of more than one skill, a combination of expertise in more than one domain. You might have come across roles such as experience architect, user experience consultant, or even customer wrangler, all of these typically involve technical knowledge, excellent communication and management skills. All of these roles...

Do I need a university degree to succeed in digital?

D

Full Disclosure I have a BA and an MA, so this is a really difficult question for me to answer unbiasedly. However, I would be lying to you if I said that you need a university degree to succeed in digital. The reality of the job market, specifically digital is very different. I have worked with professionals who are educated lawyers, but work as digital coordinators, with literature graduates as...

Is blogging really going to get me my next job?

I

If it doesn’t directly help you get a job in digital, it will certainly play an important part in getting you there. One of the deciding factors that helped me land my first job, was one of the articles I wrote while I was on trial at ManageWP. My blog was named after my favourite teenage movie “Not So Clueless”, and the article was all about Catherine the Great. This...

Summer lovin’…

S

… had me a blast. Do you know what song I am thinking of? This is my all time favourite song and movie, and when I was little I used to make everyone sing it with me. I was Sandy, and Danny took on the shape of my stepfather, brother, friend, anyone really who would humour me! So today in honour of all those happy memories, I wanted to share with you my summer lovin’. This summer has...

Should you embellish your stories?

S

Some people are born natural storytellers and most of those people have one key thing in common; they embellish stories. How do I know this? My parents are masters of embellishment when it comes to stories. I was lucky to grow up with them, because everyday things like going to the supermarket became exciting when told by my parents. As I grew up I realised that some things weren’t exactly...

You were definitely amazing, and friendly as usually. I didn't expect anything less. Well organised, good in team work, but also, I think everyone had a feeling you were there just for them.
