Blog update from Colleen Markley and YesItReallyHappened.com
So I'm still getting the hang of this tech stuff. I like writing way more than tech-ing, if that's even a verb. Today I sat on the phone with a smart tech person who taught me about things like SSLs (I had known enough to buy one months ago but apparently didn't know there was a whole thing about how to redirect to it), Firewalls (apparently ALL the cool kids have a firewall these days) and a CDN (I forget what that part was). I also learned that I needed to upgrade my PHP from 5.4 to 7.2, so that might be why I spent a good part of the weekend banging my head against hard surfaces as I tried to get my latest blog update to post. Like I said, I like writing more than tech-ing.
So what am I writing these days?
Well, yes, the book is still in progress. That's a story for a different day.
Today I'm excited to share with you that I had an editorial published last week in New Jersey Spotlight supporting the legalization of marijuana. Huh, you say? Yes, it's a bit of a hot topic, and not something that you usually see me talking about. I've never been to a Grateful Dead show and I don't have any funky tomato plants in my garden (honestly I couldn't even get the regular tomato plants to do well this year and am ever so grateful for farmers who are in charge of the food production. Plants are not my superpower).
Sometimes I like to write really funny things to help us all find a laugh. Sometimes it's easier to do that than others. But always, I think we can discuss with respect and logic and ethics. Honestly, when the aliens arrive, we humans are gonna need to stick together.
