This blog was born on 6 July 2006, and I’ve made 316 posts in the intervening 12 years, 6 months, 11 days. One day I’ll show that in chart form; until then you’ll just have to take my word for it.

The Disclaimer

I'm a CIPR Chartered PR PractitionerI'm a CIPR FellowAs a Fellow and Chartered Practitioner of the Chartered Institute of Public Relations, I ought to let you know that I am a Fellow and Chartered Practitioner of the Chartered Institute of Public Relations. Which I think I just have. Cilip probably requires me to do something similar.

And I’m on the UK Lobbying Register, because some of the work I’ve done (and hope to do again in the future) could be construed as attempting to influence Government policy, directly or indirectly.

I much prefer “The Disclaimer” from Ixnay on the Hombre, an album by The Offspring, but there you go.

I write in a personal capacity, not to order and never in exchange for cash or gifts – unless clearly stated otherwise. It hasn’t happened yet.

Theme information

This site’s theme is an amalgam of two old-ish themes from Automattic. The menu and screen sizes are from Sorbet, while most of the colours come from Fictive. The home page uses style cues from their Shoreditch theme. With some research I’ve adapted some code excerpts and appropriated a few plugins to do my bidding. Note: I am being modest.

I’ve also hacked around with the Genericons font .css so that my Google PageSpeed performance grade is generally in the high 90s, except when it’s including links to files from Twitter, Facebook etc. The reason I can’t reach a score of 100 is… Google Fonts. Go figure.
