One of the most challenging aspects of maintaining a blog has been committing to creating content even when I don’t feel like it. I’m not always in the mood to write or create. I have extrinsic motivators that keep me writing at my 9-5, ie. my paycheck and performance evaluation. But writing for myself is […]

Getting clear on the sort of content I wanted to create for Danica Explains It All has been one of the most nerve-wrecking and empowering processes I’ve ever gone through.
