Ever since I discovered the Internet, way back in 1996, I felt I had found a place where I could express myself completely. It was a global stage without borders, a boundless ocean of knowledge and ideas.
After more than two decades of surfing, typing and clicking my way through the World Wide Web, I have finally laid the foundations and groundwork of the online presence I had long since wanted to be felt – by people from various walks of life, of all interests and persuasions.
Since April 2019, I have been very actively growing this network with all the websites I wished to build and maintain. For many years now, all my attempts to do so were halted by commitments, circumstances or personal decisions. This year, I promised myself, would be my last complete hurrah. If I had it in me to create all these before the start of a very busy school year for my family, then I would be able to keep on adding more content in the days to come, not start from scratch.
I am proud to present to you all my five dozen strong domains, showcasing the things I have created and loved, the people and stories nearest and dearest to me, and the priceless lessons I have learned online and offline.
This is Shirley’s network, and, yes, it is so very me.
