Six Things WordPress Taught Me

September 11th, 2017 2:08 pm


Lately I’ve been working with WordPress quite a bit over several very different projects. In each case I’ve refined my approach after what I’ve learned from the previous project. Like all dev endeavors, things aren’t always as they seem at the start. Here are the six most important WordPress lessons I’ve learned in the last few years:

Our Eyes are on the Street

June 23rd, 2017 3:00 pm


We’ve been busy cooking up some pretty cool and incredibly useful projects at The Glue this year. One of our favorites is a crowdsourcing app that we are calling Eyes on the Street. It will allow anyone in LA to submit data on the condition of sidewalks all around the city. We want to know if a sidewalk is accessible to people in wheelchairs, if it’s lit, if it’s buckling, uneven, has potholes, or my personal favorite, if a sidewalk is used as an apartment building’s trash can storage area — boo!

Naula on The Fertility Podcast

April 25th, 2017 11:09 am


One of my favorite things to do during my long walks at the beach is to listen to podcasts. That ocean view requires great storytelling in the background. The Glue produced its first podcast series last summer with Los Angeles Metro: Off Peak. Off Peak played a huge role on my walks last year. It explores the rich history and future of rails, bus, cycling, walking and all manner of getting around LA. Towards the end of that project we launched Naula on iTunes.

A Note About Naula’s Pricing

December 19th, 2016 4:03 pm


We’ve gotten a few inquiries lately about Naula app’s pricing from potential users. They’ve basically asked us why Naula is not free or why is it more expensive than other apps in the app store. This is a fair question, and as users we would probably ask it as well. At The Glue we strive to be as fair and as transparent as possible so here’s a straight answer to a straight question.

First Woman Everything

November 21st, 2016 2:00 pm

One of my favorite quotes from Leilia Bailey-Leahy, from my favorite episode of Off Peak, which may be my favorite professional project to date, never even made it into the episode. We first spoke on the phone early last summer about her glass ceiling-breaking career at RTD in LA and the possibility of me interviewing her for our podcast. One of the first things she said to me, quite matter of fact was, “It was tough, but I was tougher.”

Long Night’s Journey into Day

November 9th, 2016 9:50 am

This morning, I was all set to write a blog post for The Glue celebrating the election of America’s first woman president. In the context of our women-owned company, it would be especially meaningful and poignant, even if not all of us were, at all times, enamored with Hillary Clinton.

Instead, if I may speak for myself, Paula, Rachael and the women who work with us, we are in shock and devastated.

More than a Medical Treatment

November 2nd, 2016 12:25 pm


Musicians, compose. Poets, write. Engineers, plan. Artists, imagine. We all create something. For Elizabeth Walker, founder of The ART Of Infertility, the desire to have a baby and the difficulty to get there inspired her to create something unique and meaningful.

Can You Make It Bigger?

August 18th, 2016 10:00 am


I am fascinated with the creative process behind logo designs. The choice of colors, shapes, fonts, readability and, most importantly, symbolism, tells a story. Ours turned out to be very simple and minimal.
