Blogging makes you realise that there are many different ways to say things, and if you say things in many different ways, you find new facets on the subject and idea.

We build fast, clean websites that follow Google's best practice guidelines and can be seen on any device.
We use the appropriate technology to achieve these goals and allow for easy updating and expanding of your website as your company grows.
We mainly work with small local businesses in the Yorkshire area. We are based in Leeds and want to work with you to help you establish your web presence.
Though we are not limited to the Yorkshire area, we are willing to take on work from anywhere in the world, even Lancashire.
The first step is to talk about all the aspects of your website. What is its purpose? Who are the target audience? What functions do you need? Have you already got a brand and Logo?
We need to find out exactly what you require so that we can plan the strategy for building your website.
Once we have agreed what you require we will design and build your website. We build all our websites to meet Google's best practice guidlines so that your site has the best chance of doing well in the search rankings.
Then we deliver a site that can be viewed on any common device, desktop pc, laptop, tablet or smart phone because access to the internet is becoming easier across all these devices.
From the Office for National Statistics: "Access to the Internet using a mobile phone more than doubled between 2010 and 2012, from 24% to 51%."
As smartphone and tablet design become better and cheaper, everyone is going to have them, doesn't it make sense that your website will work on them from the outset?
