social-header

I was browsing Facebook when I couldn’t sleep a few days ago, when I saw a sponsored ad from a company I follow – Mailchimp – announcing they are closing the Social plugin. This disappointed me, as I use Social (on my personal blog, as well as Wrestling Betting), so I’m gutted it’s being discontinued.…

Happy New Year Everybody! I hope you had a great break and are feeling refreshed for the new year! We took a nice break, we didn’t switch off totally but did end up having a fair few days just keeping an eye on things rather than doing much work. It is definitely needed though as projects…

20151122_115810

Over the weekend just gone I was up in Scotland to attend WordCamp Edinburgh 2015. This is the first WordCamp I attended in Scotland so I was keen to meet the community up there, and of course to visit one of my favourite cities. The conference was in Skyscanner’s office slap bang in the city…

wordcamp-edinburgh

I haven’t done one of these for a while, but WordCamp Edinburgh is this weekend and I’m looking forward to it immensely.

A lot of developers are pretty terrible at marketing and SEO, and many of them also don’t properly attribute their links and where they come from.
