Caring for your WordPress website

Website Performance

This overview of Google’s latest search algorithm update (August) provides a list of practical questions to ask about your website content.

One interesting aspect of Google’s update concerns a website author’s demonstration of expertise.

This update makes me wonder if it’s one way Google is trying to weed out AI-generated content that does not provide fresh or original insight (of course, the skeptic in me wonders if this could also be a way to feed Google’s AI machine with fresh content!).

Regardless, the bottom line is: when you create website content, remember to add something uniquely YOU to the conversation, something that helps the specific audience you serve.

Caring for Yourself


Find the beauty and joy in your daily rituals and you will find beauty and joy in your daily life.

Try this experiment in beauty and joy:

Notice some of your “mundane” daily rituals (making coffee, feeding the cat, making dinner, getting the mail, etc). Then say of word of thanks. Express gratitude for the simple joy of being able to do them again today and for the joy they might bring to others.

The real joy is not in the thing; rather, it is within us, waiting for us to notice. A simple expression of gratitude can help spark joy.
