I've been thinking about my business, my skills and knowledge, the type of projects that I do, and the best CMS. This is a brain dump post with a few thoughts about all of that. I may add to the post as my thinking develops.

Last week, I shut down a personal site. Sussex Pub Links was a directory of pub websites (and related links) but, after a review, I decided it was time to close it.

A bit of a throwaway question I know. But, I'm finding it increasingly difficult to find the time to work on (redevelop) my own sites (this blog included, as you can probably tell).

My review of the year. Things I have done and enjoyed. Work, conferences and meet-ups and coworking. Running and parkruns. Cycling a lot.

I wrote this post before Christmas where I discussed some potential decisions about the focus of my business. In particular, whether I should focus on a single content management system, WordPress or Perch, for web development. Well, I've decided to continue to use both! Here's why.

I've been a bit slow over here recently and that's because I'm busy with quite a few other personal sites. No excuses of course. However, I've been reviewing what I write here and will be posting some new articles soon. Yay!

I’ve been meaning to write a blog post for some time about my web design and development workflow and the tools/software I use. So, this post is part of that and ‘in reply’ to many tweets I see every day (it seems) about other web development tools. Don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong with a healthy marketplace of web design and development software, in fact I heartily support a wider choice. This post is not intended to be criticism of other software either. It’s just that I feel that Dreamweaver sometimes gets a bit of a ‘bad press’ or is perceived as not ‘cool’ – when, in my opinion, it’s still a great web development environment.
