Here we are again. It’s the start of another new year, and having had a couple of weeks’ rest and Christmas fun I’m excited about getting back to work and trying new things in 2017.
2016 probably won’t be remembered as a great year for society, but it was a brilliant one for me personally. My business grew a lot, my son grew up a lot, and I took a lot of nice holidays with my family.
I also made some great progress with my other business project, the video game reference Dbljump. I started working on Dbljump in April 2015 – my first steps being to learn as much as I could about web development and programming – and now there are three people on the team. Hopefully we can launch something in the first half of 2017.
I’m hoping to write for more IT businesses this year. In 2016, I collaborated with a handful of excellent companies – all doing very different things, from making servers to supporting them – which up to that point hadn’t found quite the right voice for their web content and marketing. I feel like this is becoming one of my strongest skills. My combination of copywriting experience and real computing knowledge means I can pick the right tone for all kinds of audiences, business or consumer. If you want to know more, check my IT copywriting page.
Finally, I know I’ve said this a few times before, but I really am hoping to use this blog more often in 2017. In the past I’ve tried to be calculating in how I prepare posts, thinking too much about things like search. But in the end, that’s proved a stifling approach and I’m ready to use my own voice.
Have a brilliant 2017!
