I recently wrote of being done with WordPress, and how I was going to move the whole thing to another site. I did spend some time trying to do just that, but it was a deep rabbit hole that seemed to be endless. Perhaps it’s better to work with what I’ve got, warts and all, than to strive for perfection.
Actually quite a lot of my time recently has been spent learning how to successfully transfer most of my digital lifestyle needs to mobile devices, namely the iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch. Apple’s recent unveiling of the 2018 Mac Mini brought home the fact that my 2012 Mac Mini might very well be my last Mac, and that the best way for me to be successful in the future is to adapt to the paradigm shift that is underway.
Even now, I’m writing this blog from my 2017 iPad Pro 12.9. I could just as easily be writing it on my iPhone 7 Plus. It’s easy when you’ve got something like the WordPress mobile client and a full-size Apple Magic Keyboard that can go anywhere.
As much as WordPress has been a pain in my ass, it does facilitate a digital nomad creative flow. I can draft my blogs from any mobile device. I can fully process my images from anywhere in the world.
That’s not to say I’ll be on WordPress forever. I just don’t want the desire to be off of it to be an excuse to not blog. I’ve leaned on that excuse for too long.
