Bio

I’m a 76-year-old writer with a career in journalism and sports administration and management, from PGA golf to tier one motorsports. I am a self-professed IT dummy.

WordPress Origin Story

Retirement, cancer, chemo, retraining and WP101. Shawn Hesketh has been my mentor and has been instrumental in helping me along the path to establishing my website https://www.adrianchambersmotorsports.com.au
With zero coding ability, I continue to struggle whenever anything goes awry with my site (frequently) given my inability to understand how things work (and even less ability about how to fix them). But I love writing, and Gutenberg – my site has an archive of 700+ articles – and battle on regardless! Cheers.
