It has been a busy period of late for both [...]
Over the past 6 months I have been streamlining business processes for my company and though it sounds dull, the effects are so rewarding that it really is worth it.
Jana Khayat has spent several years building a small, beautiful horse stud in Devon - and it was time to stop hiding and show it off to the world. After the initial phone call, I was pretty in the dark on this one - all I knew was that I had been recommended by the remarkably talented equine photographer, Fiona Crawford.
A few weeks ago I was asked by Jamie Lee at 'Action for Children' if I'd like to take part in a charity event in order to raise money for his charity ... he said there would be free mince pies ... 'nuff said!
Pete Turner is a builder specialising in new builds, renovations and barn conversions - but it didn't take me too long to realise that he was a little bit more than that. Within a short while of knowing Pete I just knew that I was going to enjoy creating this website.
So - the site was very old and pretty awful, there was absolutely no META info and the coding was very bloated with a lot of inline css ... plenty for me to work on. I decided to start from scratch and work on a Wordpress platform for the news section as they had requested the ability to update this part themselves. I have recently done a couple of builds completely on WP and I think I will move this over in a few months just to make all editing easier.
I work with small businesses every day, to help them build an online presence. A simple one page website, tied in to a co-ordinated social media presence need not cost the earth, but it really is worth doing well - contact me for more information.
The more I learn about Wordpress, the more I find out I don't know - which is how I like it! The WP CMS is an incredibly versatile thing and constantly improving.
My move to the Middle East in 2007 rekindled my love of playing rugby - as my body is incapable of doing so at anything less than 35 degrees heat - and this trip to India, along with tales from the Philippines and Indonesia relayed by my team mates in Dubai, bought back to me just how important rugby was for me when I was a young teenager - and I wanted to give something back. This is what Rugby Uncle is all about, for me.
At last, Tiverton Rugby Club and RuckinRugby are re-united with a great new website for the second half of the season and ready for 2010/11.
