You may have noticed that the blog has had a small makeover to celebrate its first birthday (we had a serious makeover of our website in October 2012). This was due to some issues that prevented me from making it look a bit better with images. Previously in this blog (which is my second) I was struggling to successfully add pictures, they would end up too large or in the wrong place. This was partly out of my control due to the techy stuff that I don’t understand that well, but was to do with the site theme and structure. So hopefully from this point forwards images can be inserted to make it look rather better. The old blog is still running, and as of now has had over 50,000 views, but I don’t update it at all and the original content has been moved to this one.
We have also added my twitter feed and expect to add Linkedin, Facebook and various other social media formats for you to hook up to, should you choose to do so. Social media seems to be rather addictive and it is a good way to share useful information, the trick is separating the wheat from the chaff.
A good user experience
Finally, whilst my marketing team work hard to ensure a good user experience, it would be helpful to have any feedback about pages that don’t load up properly or you cannot view etc. Of course you may not know what it is meant to look like, but if it looks odd let me know. We have made considerable efforts to enable you to view our site and all of its content on your desktop, laptop, tablet or mobile smart phone. There are as you may know, hundreds of different formats and it is wise to keep yours up to date.
