Emily’s Personal Favourites

Sometimes, you write something that speaks to you. Even the most self-critical person has those works they adore.

Here you’ll find my favourite curated articles I’ve had the pleasure to write for either Life on the Flatlands or elsewhere. I can’t always explain why I like what I do, so take a read, and you be the judge of your favourites. They might not be the best written, but they caught my eye or are something I liked writing for some reason. Sometimes a topic speaks to you…other times, you are just trying to get it all out.

Making Friends as an Adult

Maybe it’s just me… but making friends is absolutely hard! Anxiety doesn’t make anything easy, but even before any form of diagnosis it was a difficult mountain to scale. As an introvert, I typically made one friend and was luckily absorbed into said friends group. All my life that’s been the case for me. While…

SharePoint Online: An introduction

SharePoint is a web-based collaborative platform that integrates with Microsoft Office, launched in 2001 and primarily sold as a document management and storage system. But what sets it apart is the way its architecture is highly configurable, and its usage varies substantially amongst organizations.
