If you’re just starting to build your own awesome website – maybe for fun, for your business, or maybe even for your travel diary – then you should know that colour schemes are a big deal. We all want our sites to look polished and professional; and whilst yes, a good design is a must, the colour scheme you choose is essential to help you achieve the perfect look and feel. Now, different colours can signify a myriad of different things, each elicits a different feeling, perhaps a different emotion, and so setting the tone of your business and website can be achieved primarily – and simply – through the careful choice […]

Today, I want to touch on one of the biggest questions newbie bloggers have: ‘should I use WordPress.com or WordPress.org?’ I’m going to briefly go over the three main differences between the two so that, hopefully, you’ll get an understanding of what’s best for you and your business.

But first, if you ever wonder what I use to run 23Pixels and from where I get those essentials, I’ve created a cool new ‘Resources’ page.

It’s all about list building. And if you haven’t worked it out by now, along with our subscription forms we should be providing our readers with additional content – a cheat-sheet, some extra tips, a new tutorial, or a short course. Now, knowing all of that […]
