Where to Find Sallie Goetsch
(Rhymes with ‘Sketch’)

Below you will find links to my own websites (personal and business), my social profiles, and some of the places I hang out, online and off. You could think of this as the self-hosted version of an About.me page.

  • The Author-izer

    An author-izer is a writer who turns other people into authors—in other words, a ghostwriter. Translating Greek drama for the stage helped prepare me for this job, because there, too, you need to write in someone else’s voice.

  • FileSlinger Backup Blog

    The now-defunct FileSlinger Backup Blog chronicled changes in backup hardware and software from 2005 to 2011. Because there were so many links to the site, I updated the theme and have kept it online even though I no longer write for it.

  • The Podcast Asylum

    Also started in 2005, the Podcast Asylum began as a joke, but turned into a consulting consortium. Podcasting is hot again, so who knows? The Asylum may gain a new lease on life.

  • Sallie’s Personal Pages

    I actually just refer to this site by its domain name: “SallieGoetsch.com.” And it has unexpectedly become the most-visited of my websites, necessitating a rapid theme change for greater readability. I picked a theme called “Graphy” that mimics the style of Medium.

  • WP Fangirl

    WP Fangirl is now my main source of income. I started working with WordPress in 2005 and got sucked further and further into it. So has everyone else been, it seems, as WordPress now powers more than 20% of the Web. Alas, I have been so busy building other people’s websites that I haven’t had time to update my own. (I’ve done quick theme switches for FileSlinger, Author-izer, SallieGoetsch.com and now Rhymes with Sketch, but re-doing my portfolio is a bigger job.)

  • Bay Area Consultants Network (BACN)

    I’ve been on the board of the Bay Area Consultants Network since 2005 (I guess that was a watershed year), and I also built their current website…just before responsive design took over.

  • East Bay WordPress Meetup

    I became the organizer of the East Bay WordPress Meetup at the end of 2009, when the group’s founder moved back to Los Angeles. We have a Meetup.com page, of course, but what would a WordPress Meetup be without a WordPress site? This one is hosted by Page.ly.

  • Medium

    I just started writing on Medium in 2014. Some of my posts have been popular. Some have suffered obscurity.

  • Twitter

    I resisted Twitter for a while, but got sucked in around 2010, I think it was, and have been there ever since. I normally use TweetDeck, though.

  • LinkedIn

    I was a very early adopter of LinkedIn, which didn’t get interesting until more people I knew joined. It got less interesting when LinkedIn discontinued Answers. I still visit a few times a week, though, and I’ve slowly accumulated a good number of followers. I’m sure I need to update my profile.

  • Google+

    Unlike some people, I enjoy Google+. I have several profiles there, the most-used being the Rhymes with Sketch and WP Fangirl profiles. I have a rudimentary page for WP Fangirl as well. My personal blog posts get re-posted here.

  • Ello

    I confess I’m very skeptical about Ello. I’m not sure why I should be interested, and there’s no desktop app for it. And I really dislike the typeface.

  • Pinterest

    Pinterest is my guilty pleasure. It’s where I go to indulge my passion for opals and my fondness for Art Nouveau and Arts and Crafts, for Victorian architecture, for ancient gold jewelry, and for sweeping vistas of places I’m unlikely to get to visit.
