I’m actually surprised I never blogged about this one. This weekend I finally cancelled my GSuite service. I have been with GSuite since it was in it’s very first beta and they had “free for life” accounts.

I still strongly advocate for self-hosted blogs, but Medium definitely has its strengths (given its reach and ...

Those of you who follow my work know I enjoy redesigning my website on a regular basis. Approximately every 6 months I complete a design surrounding a special project, theme, or focus.
