Tips, tools & knowledge

How to start a personal blog?

In my experience the most important thing in a blog is the content .

After six years of starting my personal blog I have reinvented and still do. I have experienced , deleted , created , deleted again, lost content , written with spelling mistakes , written more clearly and concrete , I have written about my personal life , about my work , about technology, being trolled, criticized, congratulated, liked my content, my content has not liked , anyway. The point is I have learned and still do, but I never fail to reinvent myself .

Content

Talk about something that is not common to read and something you’re passionate about .

I suggest your content is about something you live in your current context and make it something that you like so much that you want to share with others , who may be identified, or learn something new. Create valuable content to people.

Eventually you will be able to identify categories of the item you’re trying to highlight and identifying the characteristics of the people who read you .

Of course you can set this from the beginning, but if not, experiment , be yourself, enjoy writing and through this action you will discover new facets of yourself.

Choose your platform

If this is the first time you have a blog I suggest you create an account on wordpress.com, and you can start creating your first post right away without wasting much time in installation and devote yourself into creating content.

If you have any questions email me.

Design

Select a design that identifies you.

If you are creating  written content choose a theme where there is clean visual noise, perhaps accompanying your post with a picture but keep it clean for the reader.

If your content are images, look for a theme that is suitable to display your pictures in a more interactive way .

Frequency

When you have a blog is hard to be disciplined about publishing new content (of course if you are very disciplined this is not a problem). I suggest to start with a goal publishing once a week during  3 months. If this remains you can reach another goal and publish daily or maybe invite others to collaborate.

After you create discipline, more readers, content quality I suggest to look for a hosting and install a framework like WordPress.org

At the end, the most valuable of a blog is its content. Your words, your pictures, your content.

Building ideas

Time to renew

So the think is that my original startup idea didn’t well so good. At one point I realized it wasn’t really something that I truly love and also about the lack of experience that I have in big data.

So baby steps by baby steps. Now getting to the basics, I’ve been realized I would like to be more involved with the industry and get into the operations. So is time to refresh all the knowledge after years being just in management areas and really start doing something.

So here I go, wish me luck.

Where are women in Tech sector? [facts]

According to the report A bright future in ICTs, Opportunities for a New Generation of Women, 2012 of the ITU from the United Nations, these are some facts about women in the tech sector.

First I wanna to start with some general facts about the future of the ICT job market no matter the gender:

  • The European Union calculates that in ten years’ time there will be 700 000 more ICT jobs than there are professionals to fill them; globally, that shortfall is estimated to be closer to two million. (page v)
  • With an estimated 700,000 jobs in Europe, 800,000 in the US and 200,000 in Brazil alone, the ICT sector will be looking to hire at least 1.7 million people in the coming years. (page vii)

Women in the Tech sector:

  • Women’s employment figures in advanced economies are in decline (page v)
  • On average, this research found that women accounted for 30 per cent of operations technicians, only 15 per cent of managers and a mere 11 per cent of strategy and planning professionals. (page v)
  • In the Asia and Pacific region restricting job opportunities for women is costing the region between USD 42 and USD 46 billion a year. (page vi)
  • In February 2009, for example, women accounted for only 25 per cent of all IT occupations-the exact same proportion of IT occupations held by women in March 2000. (page 2)

India

  • In the software industry women worked as operators or programmers while men were predominant in managerial positions as project leaders or departmental managers.  (page 4)

UK

  • According to the ONS 2004 statistics indicate that women accounted for 30 per cent of IT operations technicians, a mere 15 per cent of ICT managers and only 11 per cent of IT strategy and planning professionals. (page 5)
  • Between 1995 and 2002 the number of women in ICT jobs declined from 25% to 22% (page 6)

United States

  • The proportion of female computer/mathematical scientists employed in the country dropped from 37% in 1994 to 27% in 2004. (page 6)
  • Computer programming used to be a field that attracted women; in the late 1970s the percentage of women in the field stood at 25 per cent – it is the same today. Women with computer science degrees peaked in 1984 at 37 per cent; since then women left computer science in droves, dipping to 20 per cent by 2006. (page 5)

Woman, go for it!

By viewing this video I thought about something. I remembered the domestic employee’s daughter here at home, who is no more than 5 years old. Why not? … instead of watching t.v., or being outside my room snooping on what I write on my laptop while I work. Why not? … I close my laptop and I teach that child to read and write, maths maybe, I’m think about getting a lego game and kill their curiosity. I do not know, but support her with a grain of sand, once a week, and who knows what new opportunities might she have. Just like this video of how a teacher changed the life of this girl in Nepal, why not? .. I can impact the life of another girl here in my country.
