My Reddits

Before I was a blogger, I was a talented moderator on a homeschooling list. This year, I have kind of taken that back up again via Reddit.

This is my current list of Reddits (yes, I sort of randomly added some spaces to the List to make it matchup some with the image on my laptop):
  1. r/ClothingStartups

  2. r/GigWorks
  3. r/CitizenPlanners

  4. r/aberdeenwa
  5. r/UrbanForestry

  6. r/Seward
  7. r/HousingWorks

  8. r/pocketputer
  9. r/frenchwardrobe

  10. r/Walkable
  11. r/CoastalWA

  12. r/HealthWorks
  13. r/Knits

  14. r/SolanoRail
  15. r/NorthToAlaska
  16. r/NorthToAlsaska
  17. r/Relo
  18. r/TheCrescent

I created Urban Forestry just days ago and until today it had one member, me. I announced it on r/UrbanPlanning today and it was up to 27 members as I began this post, which makes it larger than about three-quarters of the Reddits I own.

I am not even done with putting this post together and that figure is already out of date. It's continuing to pick up members owing to the size of r/UrbanPlanning and it being a topic of genuine interest to planners.

Some of my reddits match or go with specific blogs. In addition to an r/SolanoRail, there is blog called Solano Rail.

Other times they are more loosely related and listed in the sidebar of some blog or a few blogs that are somewhat related. So my activity on Reddit is interrelated with my blogging to some degree and tends to cover similar topics: Health, housing issues, place making, etc.

A Lean, (Ever)Green Machine: Website Tips for Small Shops

I've been making little websites to serve up information on various topics for close to two decades. I'm basically a one-woman shop, so my websites have to be lean, evergreen, low cost and low maintenance to make any sense at all.

I currently live in a small town and I sometimes attend public meetings where people are enamored of shiny tech but don't know how to use it. They get all envious of projects and talk in glowing terms about "Wouldn't it be GREAT if we did something like that?!" and I bite my tongue and don't say "You have no idea what on earth you are talking about. You have neither the resources nor the expertise to do a project like that."

Those experiences inspired me to write this post. I would love to help people in the small town where I live to establish an effective web presence, but I really am going to need to do a lot of educating if that is ever going to happen.

Most locals have no idea how to make a website that…

Me. Woodward Park, Fresno, CA. January 2016.

My favorite pic of me that's sort of recent-ish. (No, you aren't lost. As of June 1, 2020, redirects here.)


Until a few days ago, this site -- -- was my personal blog and I had a separate site at that I thought of as my professional site where I had information on how to hire me to do resume work and the like. About three days ago, I fairly spontaneously redacted all the personal blog posts from this site and set about merging the two sites into one.

Now, redirects here. Most of the content was moved over from the other site. The only content I kept from my personal blog were the pages called Me, My Websites and References.

I also took design elements from both. I kept the pink and white template from my personal blog but added a pinned (permanent) Featured Post with the same photo from the other site. I also substantially edited a lot of the content from both sites to make everything more polished.


I have no idea if I will end up making a new personal blog elsewhere, b…
