How can we reward our long-term clients or thank them for continually using our service, without saying “thanks for supporting my business”? A client sent me an email asking if it was possible to reward her long term clients with a freebie of some kind.

Just when I’ve spent a few hours figuring something out and deciding to set something in place, I then hear from someone else that we don’t have to set that thing in place.

So I reckon, reduce your stress and prevent pulling out your hair, put a whole bunch of stuff in place, cover your back, then you don’t have to worry about anything. I’ve …

What is HTTPS and why does my site need it?

When you open a web browser (e.g Chrome, Safari, Firefox) and to look at website, the browser is actually asking a webserver (a big computer) somewhere across the world, to send the pages of the website to your computer.  This conversation between your computer and server is handled by thousands of other computers and devices. Think of this analogy; when you post a letter, is it handled by post office workers, driven around the country in Post Office vans, stored …
