Well, we had another 6 months in NYC, so we spent 12 months in 2 years. That’s awesome, and I can’t find words to thank our wonderful friends for taking us into their home and taking care of us like they did. This wouldn’t be possible without such wonderful people around. I’m working full time as a freelance web designer and can say it’s finally worth all the stress and … Continue reading

    The polite thing to do when someone’s linking to your blog

    I’ve decided to ditch the top 10 articles roundup for 2 reasons: 1. most of the times it’s actually difficult to find something worth reading and linking too (and I do monitor almost 200 blogs) and 2. more than half of them don’t give a trackback, making this useless as a link building strategy.

    5 things to have in mind BEFORE starting a forum

Bottom line: I got a lot of experience and it really was fun. READ MORE!

    Ready for 2011!

    I’ve had an AMAZING 2010. It wasn’t all easy, but there’s been some events that really made it the best year I’ve ever had. My web design business grew steadily, I created tens of sites for my clients and was able to receive good feedback and provide a good service to them. We also traveled for 6 months, so it was a blast. We stayed at our friends in NYC, so I kinda know Manhattan as if I’ve lived there all my life. My resolutions for 2010 were almost entirely achieved, even if we did have a hectic schedule (not … Continue reading

    Because you’re supposed to

    We’re days before the Holidays start. Whether it’s Christmas or any other similar celebration or the New Year’s Eve, that doesn’t depend on religion anymore, people are maxing their credit cards, buying way too much food and try to show off, because … you’re supposed to. We’ve had a very difficult year in my country too. Hundreds of thousands of people were fired, their bank payments are late and some lost their homes or the cars they bought on credit. January will come with more cuts and even less money for most people. And still, these days, it seems like … Continue reading
