What do you think of my website? Does it look good? Is it easy enough to navigate? Does it have enough or too much information on it?
I almost hit, “Tweet.” I was gonna do it, I was. The words had been written and all that was left to do was hit that blue button. I could’ve but I didn’t. I stopped myself. Just in time? Maybe.
Since signing up with Medium about a month ago, I’ve been endlessly curious about my stats. The prospect of earning some money through my writing is incredibly attractive to me. It’s not just the stats and money that I’m after, but it’s hard to deny that it’s a nice bonus. My real objective is to… Continue reading My first two cents

The colours that came out after the rain and because of the flat light coming through the clouds were incredible. I’m… Continue reading Allan Gardens | Aly walks around taking pictures of Toronto, and he talks, too
