Last week I ventured into the Big Apple for the second time! I loved every moment despite the bitter cold weather. A big city means a lot of walking - apparently the average New Yorker walks about 4 miles a day - I have no doubt we kept up with the locals (especially when trekking it all the way to Brooklyn and back!). The trip gave me the perfect opportunity to practice my photography.

February 16, 2013Ruby on Rails
Whilst I've been teaching myself Ruby on Rails these past weeks, I've stumbled upon numerous useful resources that have really helped me get to grips with the programming language and framework. So I thought I'd share them for any readers who may be interested in taking the plunge into learning Ruby and Rails.

The web design industry is huge and continues to grow year on year. This large growth and expansion leads to plenty of content being published everyday however most of this content just gets lost a week later, buried into the archives, rarely to be seen again. Recently, I've been thinking it would be nice to have a list of guidelines that web designers can abide by. They don't restrict creativity but rather maintain design consistency across the web.

It's taken a little longer than I expected but I've finally put my new site live. As you may have guessed I wasn't completely satisfied with my first design but I'm proud to say that I'm unlikely to change this design for a while. I'm sure most of you know that you are your own worst client - and almost impossible to please, so to feel any hint of self satisfaction in a personal site design is quite an accomplishment!

I find writing very hard, I've already re-written this paragraph at least four times. So I've decided to set up a personal blog with an aim of improving my writing. With the new year just starting, it seemed like a good idea to start on the 1st. So here goes! My first post will take a brief look back at 2012, future posts won't be so self-centered, promise!
