Happy birthday to us

Happy birthday to CONTENTED

Contented Enterprises is one year old. Actual birthday is 13 September but Alice and I celebrated today by giving each other an armful of flowers and a birthday cake.

We intend to be Contented for many years to come. But we're delighted with our progress so far. A national award, happy customers, and glory be, we have got enough cash in kitty to start on redevelopment! That's pretty cool for a toddler. And the reason is that CONTENTED courses are meeting a need for convenient, user-friendly, inexpensive courses for large groups of content authors.

As an extra birthday treat we gave 4 lucky winners of the New Zealand Plain English Awards a surprise gift:

  1. Three people from the Ministry of Education received CONTENTED courses for the Team Up campaign, which won the 2008 Plain English Champion: best project.
  2. Deborah Morris is this year's Plain English Champion: best individual. Besides getting a splendid trophy, she will do the CONTENTED courses free.

I cannot believe that it’s only been ONE YEAR of invaluable tips, web writer news, readability, accessibility and WIT. Well done and we look forward to a (more than most!) contented toddler! Susan & Charlotte at HBRC
