working on a blog for a web site

Thursday, January 28th, 2010

2010 must be blogging year. We have added blog systems to customers’ web sites for some time but now they are selling like hot cakes. We usually use WordPress and if it’s an existing site, we upload the blog system onto the customer’s web space, take the design of the site, transplant it on the blog, add a link to the web site and voila, a blog is added to the customer’s site that looks exactly like their web site and fits in seamlessly. This usually takes us a day in working time. At the moment, we are working on one for www.midascorporateconsulting.com.

project management tool

Tuesday, January 26th, 2010

We’ve set up a new little project management tool for ourselves. It’s okay but not great – I wish we could just magic one out of the sky, I have been looking for one that does (the FEW!) things I would like it to do but helas. This one is called Feng Office. We shall soldier on trying it out and maybe improving it or hoping for it to be improved by its creators.

Of course it is open source, as everything we work with is open source.

research for an online shop site

Monday, January 25th, 2010

We have a new concession of an online shop and are researching the style the customer likes.

There is a really nice blog of a lady whose site our customer likes: http://abigailahern.wordpress.com/.

More to come soon! :)

a small new contract

Tuesday, January 5th, 2010

We have just been commissioned to build a small ecommerce add-on to a very upmarket bag manufacturer’s site. It’s a Flash site, so it cannot be seamless, as we don’t work with Flash and specialise in making our web sites as accessible and user-friendly as possible. It will be interesting!

back from home

Monday, January 4th, 2010

Hello,

Stephy, Jenny and I are back from a nice break. It went down to minus 17 degrees at times in Germany! Airports were a nightmare, I had a 30 hour interlude at Heathrow before I could finally have a nice gluehwein in a German winter wonderland.

I hope you are all relaxed and renewed for a nice 2010, I am sure it will be a great year!
