Spam: This is your Final Notice of Domain Listing

I received an interesting e-mail over the weekend telling me to “send in your registration and save”. Apparently if I don’t send them some money no one will be able to find me on the web! It is clearly spam so here is a copy of the e-mail. There doesn’t seem to be too much […]

Engaged to Google

Last month I posted that I had been accepted into the Google Engage program and was about to start watching some videos about how it all works and how I can help small businesses use Google Adwords.

Things to Do When Creating a New Site

My First “How to” Guide

Off the back of my previous post, and over the next few posts I am going to attempt to educate the newbie’s among us. I have been telling friends, family and work colleagues about blogging and I constantly get asked, “Why blog?”, “How do I start a blog?”, “What should I blog about?” and the […]
