Today, 16/02/2018, the BBC announced Russia was charged with tampering with the US 2016 election.

- Firstly some forced, shameless, promotion of Fitness Hacks.
- Secondly, and more importantly, I hope to show which techniques do and do not work when starting a website from scratch (which can be mirrored if need be). Because this project has little to no budget – bar the money we paid for the domain name – it will become increasingly important to use tried and tested digital techniques to help it grow (things we have done prior to this point have been bullet pointed and explained below , where 99% of them have been FREE).

So today (19/11/2014) I had the pleasure of visiting Microsoft’s headquarters in London, and attending the WSI Digital Summit (#WSIDigitalSummit for the Tweeters out there)!

If you have been reading from some of the Godfathers and Godmothers of blogging you may have heard of a term referring to cookie cutter approaches to styling, writing articles and general presenting of information on a particular subject. This also applies to the “copy” used. The way you present data to draw your audience to buy.
