At least, I think they were neat.
So part of my job as a Marketing Director is writing blog posts. And sometimes it’s a struggle, and sometimes it’s a breeze.
Sometimes I’m pretty darn proud of what I’ve written. So here are some I wrote in 2020 that pleased me.
Explaining the difference between the
alt attribute and the
title attribute and what you really need for your images was just a nice thing for me to write because I feel like it keeps on getting lost in all these new frameworks and fancy tricks and I love HTML so much that it’s just soothing to go back to basics.
This extended analogy about hotels, houses, and murder cabins in the woods has been so helpful so many times when I’m talking to people about web hosting. I’ve even used it for lightning talks at events. People can have a hard time visualising what that web hosting package will give them, and any time you can go “it’s a lot like this” is a great time.
When the Great Lockdown fell upon us all, a lot of people had to get used to working remotely. I didn’t, because I was already working for a company that loves remote working. So I took the things we do, got a lovely picture of my lunch, and wrote an article to help people.
Not only did this give me a chance to point out how easy it is to run your own site, it also gave me a chance to complain about how many small retailers I see working only on Facebook or Instagram. Oh my god, people, I want to buy things from you, stop making it so difficult!
(It’s fine, I source my Jolly Ranchers and Hot Tamales from other sites now.)
