It is exactly a year ago since I decided to dip my toe into the cyberworld of Blogging. I had hardly read any Blogs and didn’t really understand what they were. However, when I decided I wanted an updated website that I could easily add events and photos to, I realised that nowadays most wesbites come with a Blog automatically. So, always one for a challenge, it was time to give it a go.
Louise Honan of Digital Ealing who lives nearby and I had known for a while helped me in all things Blogging and she set up the website for me.
She was great at getting me to focus on:
- why I wanted a new website – so I could update it myself, instant ease of use for promoting events, a new look
- who my target audience would be – people interested in mosaics, gallery owners, garden designers
- messages I wanted to put there – this is what I do, this is what I can offer, requests for help etc.
The result is this website which I think, and I hope you will agree, is a great resource, user friendly, interesting and informative. I think it successfully gets across my mosaic story and progress over the past 8 years and you also get a bit of a feel for my personality and sense of fun. Do you agree – let me know.
If you are thinking of getting a Blog or Website, I can really recommend Louise. She is professional, extremely knowledgeable and fun to work with. She has a special skill for working with creative and artistic people and helping them to showcase their work and express themselves artistically. Here is a short bio on her in her own words:
“Born in Dublin, I now live and work in west London. I have over 15 years experience in the digital industry working with large and small companies in both Ireland and the UK. My interest in business and how technology continually impacts our social and economic activity eventually led me to a career in the digital sphere. I’ve worked in the retail, publishing and logistics sectors. I currently run a small digital consultancy called ‘Ealing Digital’ where I get to work with professionals, other business owners, creative types and generally very interesting people.”
