5 Steps to Growing Quality Website Traffic
14th March 2019
I'm always striving for better quality traffic on every website I help take to market.
Of course, it's important to strive for more in terms of volume too - and if you know me, you know enough is never enough - but high volume, low quality traffic shouldn't be what you are trying to achieve. Thousands of site visits a month mean nothing without conversions.
Flexbox and CSS Grids – I think I’ll Clear Both

In the days when Flash was the go-to tool for web animation I was all over it - Drawing up silly faces and making them blink, making a little square ‘walk’ across the canvas (look out Disney, here I come!).
Pokemon Go – Fad or Future?
15th July 2016
When Satoshi Tajiri created the Pokemon franchise in 1996 (based off of his childhood hobby of collecting insects!), the technology behind augmented reality was mainly just a fixture of sci-fi fantasies. Now here we are twenty years later and we have people young and old running around trying to catch Pokemon on their mobile phones.
