Social Media — addictive, isn’t it?

It’s almost like it’s literally designed to be that way.

If you’ve ever been concentrating on a task, stopped to think for a second and found your thumb flicking to the Facebook icon, I hear you. If you’ve ever opened a new tab to do some work and found yourself typing “Faceb…” before you even notice, come on in. Take a seat. The kettle’s on. I’m going to tell you a tale of overcoming a relatively mild Facebook addiction — and we’re going to get you your time back.

Why is Facebook so addictive?

There are loads of articles talking about how social media companies…

SEO power words and how to use them

Imagine a world in which monkeys have developed a rudimentary form of internet commerce.

OokOok.com and MacaqueZone.biz are competing websites with similar offerings. Both are well-written (taking into account the inherent drawbacks associated with simian-generated web content), well-designed (for monkeys), and regularly refreshed with unique, monkey-targeted blogs supported by active social media accounts.

But when we mandrill* down into the numbers, MacaqueZone is generating far more conversions than OokOok. Why is that?

What should I write about on my blog?

Ah yes, the age-old question.

Here’s something pretty ironic: no one knows your business quite as well as you do… and yet when it comes to actually having to write about it, or about your industry more generally, you find yourself coming up blank.

Is it writer’s block? Is it the pressure of deadlines? Is it the nagging feeling that you’ve got something more urgent to do? Whatever it is, you’re not alone, so you can breathe a big sigh of relief. There’s a massive difference between understanding your business and your sector, and understanding exactly what it is your…

If you found yourself here after searching Google for things like:

“It’s raining! Why am I still sneezing?”

“When will this hay fever misery end?”

“Experimental hay fever cures”

…Welcome. I understand. Hopefully, you’ll find something new to try in this article.

Hay Fever Log: Day 317809 (at least that’s what it feels like)

I’m writing this at the end of September 2019. This year my hay fever symptoms started on the 8th of April, and only stopped completely a few weeks ago. …


How many home recording studios are there in the UK right now? It’s a tricky question to answer, as it depends on exactly how you define “studio”. If it covers anyone with a device that has multitrack recording software (whether the owner realises it or not), the number is enormous. GarageBand, for example, has been free for iOS since 2017. It’s entirely possible to create “professional”-sounding music with it, upload it to iTunes, and (though this bit is a little less likely) become a globally successful artist with a zillion quid in the bank.

Somewhere between having GarageBand on your…
