When I started off as a T.A. a few years ago, it quickly became apparent to me that I should probably start up some sort of website which I could use to deliver resources to my students. When I found out that I had free web hosting space through the University, I jumped on that and took the time to create what became a pretty functional and useful website. It served me nicely for a while but I was limited with where I could take it in terms of bringing further interaction. The main issue? I increasingly wanted to integrate a blog element and did not want to be bothered with creating my own blog mini-platform (though, the thought did cross my mind!). At the same time, I lacked the motivation to switch my website over to a more inviting platform… At least up until a friend of mine mentioned that she was moving her website to WordPress – I was then quickly sold to do the same and here we are!
Future Plans for this website?
- Continue to use it as a tool for disseminating information to the students I tutor
- Continue to use it as a way of building my professional identity online
- Build interactive learning material focused on web-development
- Blog regularly about topics of interest related to Computer Science and Education
That said, I would like to welcome you! Whether you are a student, educator, professional, or just someone with similar interests. Feel free to engage with me on the various blog posts that will eventually follow, share your thoughts, your ideas, and ask me questions.
Hey! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect against hackers?
I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on. Any tips?
Unfortunately I am not sure if they do make plugins specifically for that purpose. Though, from my experience, WordPress seems to be a secure platform. I personally keep records of all my blog posts on my PC as a safety net. That way, if something did happen to my site, I am able to quickly restore the content.
Hey, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues.
When I look at your blog site in Ie, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some
overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!
Other then that, fantastic blog!
Thank you. I’ll look into it when I have some free time and fix up the issue.
