About the Site

lifeasrose.ca was purchased in 2008, but the archives do not go back that far unfortunately (or maybe fortunately, actually ๐Ÿ˜Š You can check out some old designs though if you like!)

In its current form, it is hosted on DigitalOcean (nginx on Ubuntu) and uses Ghost to manage its content.

Life as Rose is meant to be a mix of nerdy posts and personal โ€œlife stuffโ€ content.

About Rose

I am a JavaScript developer and am currently the Web Team Lead at Flow. I like it there. I get to do a lot of fun stuff, and the people are nice too.

Iโ€™ve been a hobbiest blogger and developer since my teens (Iโ€™m now in my 30s, yuck), and turned development into a career once I became an adult because it seemed like the logical next step.

It turned out to be a good choice, thankfully ๐Ÿ˜œ

I live in British Columbia, Canada with my husband Ben, my dog Betsy, and little baby girl P!

I have another blog, Dog Love where I write about dog stuff (mostly dog training) if youโ€™re interested.
