I have a new website!
It’s still a work in progress. But if you’re reading this, it’s likely you know that describes my entire journey as IdeaSmith. Maybe you’ve been part of this journey since 2004, when I begin as a twenty-something on the internet, my curiosity about new tools overcoming my conditioning as a woman to fear everything and venture nothing. Maybe you came my way via my first flush of attention with the mid-2000s group blogs and community projects. Maybe we connected on Twitter, back when it was the new kid on the digital block. Maybe you’ve seen me go up on stage. Maybe our paths just converged via WordPress, Alphabet Sambar digital communities. Or maybe the serendipity of life and the internet had us meet some time and brought me your way again.
Whatever be our origin story, I’d love to continue it into this new chapter. For now, I apologise for how awkward & outdated this is, in a world of quick clicks and automated migrations (things I’m still grappling with). But if you’d like to continue our connection, please go right through here.
All my posts from this blog are there (or should be, please ping me if you notice a gap). You’ll also see posts from my other blog that has run on almost as long and done its share in defining who I’ve become, XX Factor. So here I am now, the same person, an old name as well as the one you have known.
