About this Site

Essential Apps


I've had a website since 2003, when I started with a .com address, using Wordpress and a default theme.

Sometime in 2011 I lost my .com address due to an admin error on my part, someone took it up and I restarted on a domain.

During the first Covid-19 lockdown, I was made redundant and decided to start the Stuff that MattR's newsletter to stay in touch with my team, I moved the site to Squarespace and ran from there for a couple of years.

In 2022 I moved to the configuration above.

The Stuff that MattR's

Weekly writing on self-development and joy, with a sideline in curiosity and music.
