Want a place to keep your WordPress site? I’m opening up my managed WordPress hosting package to the public today, and taking on a limited number of new clients! The hosting is fast, stable, and secure, but also includes personal attention from me, so your site always looks its best.
A single white female in the Middle East
Travelling as a solo female isn’t as dangerous as people tend to make it out to be. But in this part of the world, I feel more vulnerable than I have anywhere else, and I’m not entirely sure I’m okay with it.
I came home; or, how giving up isn’t always giving in
