Thanks for that. I've had a torrid week.
Thinking about your web course for my daughter Tracey who wants to get into web design. I forwarded your last newsletter to her. What more information does she need in order to decide – anyone she might chat to?

Good to hear from you and at least the week is over. Almost. Nice thought for me too! In a minute I'll get myself away from my beautiful new electric stand-up desk and into the sunshine. Just to go to the post office, but hey!
The main thing your daughter needs to know is that for a few lucky people, the Diploma in Web Content is half price until Sunday afternoon. A rare promotion is running this week, as revealed in the newsletter.
Yes, she should grab this opportunity without dithering. The courses are fresh, fast, factual, friendly and fun. It's not a big decision and she cannot lose.
Web designers are frequently obliged to write web content, because web content is the very last thing the client ever thinks about. They think their content will write itself in 10 minutes and requires no special skill — even though they can recognise horrible web content at 100 paces, and they see it every day! Delay in writing content is way the most common reason for any web project falling behind schedule.
Doing the Diploma also gives insights into text design, and certainly helps when dealing with clients!
I'd be delighted to chat with Tracey if she has questions: phone numbers on the web site.
All best wishes
P.S. The photo is a farewell shot of my old desk: bought second hand in 1995. I wrote at least three books on that desk. Even so, good riddance.
