We will try to post a regular stream of interesting content.  Timings may be a little erratic, but that all depends on the work at hand. Being a small business it can be hard being in 3 places at once. We will repress various items we think are of interest, or have some real value. Our content will range over quite an area courtesy of the many things in which we are involved. So, you will get posts relating to our work on both sides of the coin – small business marketing, content creation, social media, as well as posts relating to the entertainment world – music, video, burlesque, audio-visual art and more.

We hope you enjoy and can find some value.
