I give out my pragmatically designed and beautifully packaged business cards to prospective clients hoping that they will add credibility to the overall professional demeanor one hopes to put across in a meeting only to feel wholly inadequate when faced with the reality of not having a website to support that small www address at the bottom of one’s printed credentials. The issue is magnified when, as a web consultancy, that website has been in inexistence for as long as you have been telling people that “the cobbler walks barefoot” thinking that by saying so you have conveyed the reality that this company of motivated individuals are just too busy to make their own website, but knowing deep down it is a pathetic excuse. So, this is perhaps not quite the shoe that will eventually adorn our forward marching feet, but it is certainly a positive flip flop kind of start.
After contemplating a great number of Default websites and perhaps a good seven or more versions mocked up we have decided to settle on the quick and easy route to online publishing, join the masses in digitising our thoughts and start a blog. We hope that by simply having it up there it will give us all an opportunity to share our day to day discoveries, fire fighting stories and possibly an anecdote or two suitable for public consumption.
I am doubly happy to post the very first of Default’s ramblings especially as this is my very first personal blog entry. What’s next? Podcasting? Matt, massive thanks for taking the initiative to make this happen.
