Blog Open!


Finally, my business website is sorted again!

For the last three years, my WordPress website at became corrupted once a year, and I had to completely redesign it. 

If that wasn't bad enough, some of my keyboard keys decided to give up the ghost.  Thank goodness its

the numeric keypad only, so I can use the numbers along the top row.  Since I am a touch typist (type without looking at the keyboard) my fingers had to learn a new typing pattern really fast!

Well this year I was so swamped with work, I realised I had to change my thinking.

I ditched WordPress and used a template and external modules and resources to create this new look.

I think it turned out about 90% the way I wanted it, and I guess with a bit of tweaking I will get it exactly right. 

If this time next year I have the same issue I will just have to relearn HTML, CSS Ad infinitum.

EEK!! I really hope that does not become a requirement!

Now is the time to get feedback from you about any broken links, spelling mistakes etc.

If you are the type of person that loves detecting issues with websites, proof reading etc, feel free to pop on over to and give me your feedback via the Helpdesk.
