It was time to refresh my personal blog. My wordpress site had been running since 2012, I was getting a bit fed up with how hard it was to change the CSS, and I wanted a domain where I could easily host other code projects.
When I started doing CSS, and coolly switching background-colors with a word or two, I was horrified to discover that layouts are so difficult.
Good woooooah moment in episode 110 of The Web Ahead podcast, that I listened to today.
In 2013-14 I worked as an online reporter / producer at Channel 4 News. I wrote a bunch of news stories and made a short documentary about a gay bar bridging the sectarian divide in Northern Ireland.
I was previously a technology reporter for the Wall Street Journal, and worked for 2 years on the Register scooping the tech problems behind the RBS/Natwest banking software glitch that affected 17 million people.
