Zero to Hero Week 4: Final stretch… take 2!

Aaakh! Have you ever accidentally hit publish!?! Instantly realized the error and deleted a post?

What happened? I scheduled several posts, was making a few last edits and hit “Update” button… except oops! In this case, had barely started the draft let alone ready to “publish”…. gulp! DELETE!!

So now, as well as being late to WordPress’s “Zero to hero: 30 Days to a Better Blog” have a blogging blooper to recover from too! (more…)

Zero to Hero Week 3: This ain’t wonderland (more blog stuff)

“I’m late! I’m late! For a very important date!!”

Clearly I’m late to WordPress’s “Zero to hero: 30 Days to a Better Blog” given that it is officially over!

The tagline “Stories of a Canadian living in India, traveling around Asia” came many months later as my way of making just a teensy bit clearer who I am and what this blog is about.

Day 3: What’s on your mind – Honestly, when Every Day Adventures in Asia (Mostly) began, I didn’t have a full-time job and hadn’t quite taken going ‘independent’ seriously yet… I’m a self-confessed workaholic so having extra time on my hands was a dangerous scary thing.
