I was advised that my last blog post was a bit of a downer and on inspection perhaps it doesn’t reflect entirely where things are at the moment. As I said the post was purely a therapeutic exercise written at the spur of the moment right after a particular thing. It served its purpose and I have very much moved on and things have started falling into place. So, success? What is that?
Life is tough. It’s full of heartache and stress and what not. I’m actually writing this on the back of some disappointing news for me on a business level. Without going into too much detail, something that I reached for and tried didn’t work out and so an opportunity has been lost for me. Cest la vie right?
I’m not very good at taking constant orders. I never have been. I’m not sure where this stemmed from, or originated but it’s always been there. This probably paints some kind of rebellious leather jacket wearing, motorcycle riding cliché in your mind and actually I can assure you that it couldn’t be further from the truth.
So you’re thinking of going it alone, in the big bad world of web design? You’re eager to get your own site up and running at least? Good for you. Here are some tips to get you started.
The timing is just about right for “Ready Player One”. Steven Speilberg’s latest popcorn adventure (an adaptation of the Ernest Cline novel of same name) is hitting at arguably the zenith of the on-going retro and pop culture obsession that has taken the world in its comforting arms. With that in mind, your enjoyment of the movie will depend on how invested you are in said retro movement.
As a kind of follow up to a previous post I thought I’d talk a little about design. What is design? How do you define it? What is good design etc? Many times we have clients coming to us asking for a new website or a redesign of an existing site and quite often they can be split into 3 categories.
Thinking of getting a website designed or redesigned with us? Maybe you want some SEO along with that? If so here are a couple of things to keep in mind. We’re based in Mayo and we offer website design, content writing, SEO and social media management. We hope the following tips help you out.
This week sees the release of the latest installment in the Star Wars saga, The Last Jedi. Star Wars is a special thing for me personally. Like many others I have never known life without it. It has been a companion in some form since infancy. At times it was the centre of my entire universe and days without the battle of the heroic rebel alliance against Darth Vader and the evil empire whether on-screen or on a bedroom floor, were not true days at all.
This week we celebrate our first birthday. Aw so cute! Yes we are officially one year in business and to mark the occasion I thought it might be an idea to list out some of the biggest things I’ve learned personally, in that year. So here are our top three things learned from being in business for one year.
Recently I had the pleasure of attending a screening of “IT”, the remake of the 1990 made for television mini-series which was itself adapted from Stephen Kings horror opus about a killer clown that feeds on children. No really.
The originals, first half, if you will, was set in 1960 (as opposed to the novels 57-58 setting) and saw a group of outsider children square up against the monster terrorising their small town lives during school vacation. It was all white picket fences and crew cuts and pompadour hairdos. Why? Well, it’s simple really. Stephen King himself grew up around this particular time. The ‘50s are to him, what the ‘80s are to a lot of us and so it is a decade, which he has referenced quite a bit in his work.
