So, since I’m using my blog for a different purpose (maybe the wrong one, oh no!) I’m going to post here (and maybe tweet a bit). I love the deliberateness with which I can customize this site. Initially, I had set my permalinks to the Category/Postname option, but started finding the way I was writing… Read more »

I feel like I learned this the hard way at week 2 of camp – plus I’m the worst for taking a very DIY approach, and not consulting online communities and forums, so it was a bit painful learning some of this stuff! That said, I’m in love with what I could create with all… Read more »
I was forever bouncing into my bitly account to track traffic on my shortlinks, it’s fantastic to have it all rolled in together with my own site! It did go glitchy on me when I tried to use capitals in the Custom short URL, but worked fine with lowercase. For example techforteaching.ca/techday2019 worked but techforteaching.ca/TechDay2019… Read more »
I blew in and added certificates to my core domain and a bunch of subdomains, and then was worried that I didn’t see the https:// in front of my WordPress sites – lesson learned to read to the bottom of the page before panicing!

I’ve not yet… Read more »
One day, this will be a beautiful robust repository of info. For now, I’m happy my creature lives.

So I set this as a temporary redirect (so it wouldn’t… Read more »
I did it! Look at this cool new trick I now know. This was a straightforward process, and I appreciate the way this structured guidance is getting me familiar with the workings of cPanel. I wonder, is there an easier way for me to find the url without having to reconstruct it by typing?
After a few bumps, I have my techforteaching site up and going, and I’m liking the way it’s going to be shaping up. I’m hoping to use this as a one-stop shop for a variety of purposes, including a blog and social media presence to help my colleagues here at Conestoga. But mostly, this is… Read more »
