2019’s word

Social media is a greedy beast, isn't it? And I'm sure you've enlisted someone else to take photos for your feed at some point, rather than taking 15927 photos on timer and finding maybe one that you can use: Pretty much every one of my clients so far has asked for...

Another year's rolled around (they do go fast, don't they?!). I am a little late to the party this year, as I caught whooping cough in early December and only in the last couple of days have I felt well enough to actually do things. There's probably a whole other blog...

404 pages are a pain in the butt. Often resulting from people typing the wrong thing, a broken link, or other small gremlins lurking in your site, getting a 404 page tells you that what you have attempted to access doesn't exist. And usually, they are boring as hell -...
