Brand New Site People!

May 23rd, 2008 | By | Category: Copywriting, This Site, Website Branding, White Papers & Reports

Breaking News!

After spending three whole weeks building other people’s websites, it was finally time to upgrade my own site. I wasn’t able to upgrade it in most of May because of my ongoing website sale (there were hosted videos that I didn’t want to touch). But now that the sale is over, I can finally deploy the brand new site!

There are a lot more changes – and this allows me to add more stuff to the site – I’ve been dying to add all my free white papers, some free tools and some other goodies on the site. And this wide structure finally allows me to do that!

This weekend, I’ll be judging Startup@Singapore Business Plan competition – So expect to hear about that. Moreover, I’m just finishing designing 3 sites (and starting on 3 more) … so plenty of web design and wordpress tips coming up. Finally, all my old white papers on Web Design, Google AdWords and Usability are coming back online next week.

A Long Hiatus

Mar 12th, 2007 | By | Category: Motivation, Personal Stories, This Site

Honey, I’m home!
Yep, I know I’m been away for a long long time … I missed you too.
The reason I’m away is that I’ve taken a new job. Well, technically I’m a consultant and it’s a consulting relationship … but the client prefers me to work 9 to 7 … so it feels [...]
