My Session on Child Themes at #WordCampKampala

Day Two of #WordCampKampala has started really well. We have had some ‘Bazungu’ sharing with us inspirational stories about blogging and online presence. Participants have also shared thier experiences. UP NEXT: My Session on Child themes. In brief: When trying to make changes to a website, such as copyright information in the footer, a many people opt to edit their ‘parent’ themes directly. This creates a number of problems. The biggest disadvantage is that any modifications made to the theme in this way will be lost once the theme is updated. As a consequence, users either won’t be able to Read More

Walking by Faith, Not by Sight

We walk by faith, not by sight . . . while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. (2 Corinthians 5:7; 4:18) The Christian life is a walk. It is comprised of day by day steps from where we are to where the Lord wants us to go (both spiritually and geographically). This walk is undertaken by faith, not by sight. “We walk by faith, not by sight.”   Walking by sight is the natural manner by which human beings walk. This is true both for literal walking, as Read More

Do you sometimes struggle with having a real desire to read His Word… to keep listening faithfully to what He says? Perhaps your time in God’s Word feels a bit dry or maybe confusing. You keep reading the Bible, but more out of duty than love. Do you know that you can learn to love His Word? Psalm 119 is full of language that gushes over God’s commands, laws, and decrees – God’s Word. The Psalmist says, “Truly, Read More

That’s why many companies, institutions and prominent individuals (including ICT professionals) still don’t have official web presence. A business owner asked three website developers to submit a proposal to design her company website. She supplied the developers with the same “requirements document” that listed the website’s goals and functions. A week later each of the three web developers came back to the client with their estimates. The first one had priced the project at UGX 200,000, the second had priced it at UGX 450,000 and the final web Read More
