It’s spring and it is time for some spring cleaning! I lost my way a little bit with my blog, I started posting regular content (you know keeping it consistent like all the gurus advise) but it turns out, it’s hard to post regular content when you’re focusing on just one thing… WordPress. It all gets a bit… well… WordPressy.
As some of you will know Facebook has been slowly rolling out the ability to link your Facebook Business Page to your Facebook Group or Groups. About 3 weeks ago my Chris Wharton page got the upgrade and its been super handy for posting into my Support with WordPress Facebook Group. I’ve been surprised and frustrated that I haven’t seen the option added to any of my other business pages.
Over the past day I’ve seen a couple of people post step by step Facebook posts on how to manually link your page to your groups without having to wait for Facebook to unlock the functionality.
I posted this on my Facebook Page last week, but I’ve seen a couple of people talking about issues with WordPress being taken down, so I thought I’d pop it in a quick blog post.

You get the idea – it’s getting a bit silly isn’t it!
In the last few weeks I have seen two examples of what I term “brand bashing”. This is where a brand, be it well-known or lesser-known intentially singles out a strong competitor or market leader and attacks certain aspects of their business. This isn’t a clever way of doing business, it’s not a positive way of promoting your business and I really can’t see the benefits for even doing it.
Creating your own WordPress theme is more simple than you think. In this first instalment of a multi-post guide I’ll be going through the basics of getting WordPress up and running locally with a fresh base theme.
Customer support is something I provide every single day. Whether it is for customers of my themes or my business clients, today I’m going to talk about support for a product or service and not a mention of the new iPhone 7 in sight either!
Even as an owner of a little web design company I still get a healthy amount of speculative career enquiries. The problem with almost all of them is that they have little knowledge of what my company does, where we are or even what our names are. In short, these people are doing it all wrong. If I were looking for a job, this is what I’d do…
