I’m Miraz Jordan, a Micro.Blog user with long experience with web stuff, WordPress, and teaching others how to use things such as the Internet, Macs, various apps, plain language.
My background is in teaching, software training, adult education, technical writing, plain language, web design.
I’ve spent decades teaching ‘beginners’ how to use the Internet, Macs and other devices such as iPhones and iPads, how to write HTML, how to make web pages and websites.
In 2003 I received the UNESCO Adult Educator of the Year award for my work with adult students at the Wellington Community Education Centre.
My official publications include:
- Book: WordPress 2: Visual Quickstart Guide with Maria Langer, Peachpit Press, 2006.
- Tech Universe — a daily column (weekdays) for the NZ Herald Online for 4 years from 2010 to 2014.
- MacTips — one, sometimes 2, new Tips each week for 14 years for users of Apple products. In 2009 I added a YouTube channel too. Most, but not all, Tips include a video. In May 2013 I sold MacTips and all items since then are written by others.
