Christmas is the season of giving

Published: Dec 10, 2014 by C.S. Rhymes

Everyone loves a freebie, especially at Christmas. That’s why I’ve decided to make my books free on the 25th December.

How NOT to make a website

If you run your own website, why not take an hour out from the Christmas presents, Christmas dinner and Christmas films on TV and have a read of “How NOT to make a Website”.

The book is written in a non technical way to help you get the most out of your website and improve your visitors experience. Hopefully the book will give you ideas and motivation to improve your website ready for the new start in the new year.

Firstly I want to get the number of orders for the previous week and then I want to get a count of orders by week and year so I can put this data into a report.

Introducing Mere Blog Theme

A few weeks ago I was reading an article about how everyone should write a blog. Writing can help you demonstrate your knowledge, but also help out others that are trying to learn the same thing. I write a blog on my own website, which was built with Bulma Clean Theme (a Jekyll website theme built with Bulma), but it’s a bit much if you just wanted to create a blog. So I decided to get my notepad out and start sketching some blog theme ideas.
