A little while ago I read Sheryl Sandberg’s fantastic book, Lean In: Women, Work and the Will to Lead. At the time, I got really excited and decided I wanted to write a review so that other people would be inspired to read it too. But I knew that if I published it here, the readership numbers wouldn’t get it very far.
Now the amazing Hannah Smith, one of my colleagues at Distilled, writes for a great SEO blog, SEO Chicks, and all the contributors are women in the industry.

…also, my Distilled blog post on mobile and Google Analytics is live, and other updates
Hopefully in the next couple weeks I’ll start writing more regularly here, but since my last post I’ve been really busy with various projects at work and at home.

But the short version is, pure responsive design can be quite limiting, and many large sites are restricted by their content management system or development process or any number of other things.

Hello everyone, and welcome to my very first blog post on my new personal website! I don’t really have anything particular to say, but it’s bothering me that my homepage is empty.
I’m having a very busy week at work as well as when I’m home, sorting various projects and generally settling into life in the City (aka London). But things are slowly but surely falling into place. Hopefully once things settle I’ll have time to write a proper post, instead of just rambling on.
But it’s quite late, so for now I’ll sign off. TTFN!
