Was iWeb Apples first go at a social network?

2 Comments Blah blah

There’s FaceBook and Twitter, MySpace or YouTube. Google has Google+ and now Apple has Ping. There are literally hundreds of social networking sites, apps and tools available at the moment. But before Ping (you know, that social network based on music that comes with iTunes) came along can it be considered that iWeb was indeed Apple’s first foray into the world of social networking?

Day 7 – Blogging with iWeb

No Comments 21 Days

It has been well documented that using iWeb as a blogging platform is not the most ideal solution, however, if you know nothing else then what have you got to lose? Yes it has it’s restrictions but it can be intuitive and presents an easy solution if you want to start in the world of blogging.

It is almost an unwritten web design law that if you run a business site you should run a blog to go with it. It will allow you to keep your customers (past, present and future) up to date with your products and services.

iWeb footers – What do you do with yours?

8 Comments Tips and Tricks, Web Design

During the writing of this web-site I look at hundreds of iWeb sites. One thing that seems to be common practice amoungst quite a few of them is a lack of use of the footer area of the site.

I admit it is nice to declare proudly that the web-site you have slaved over was ‘made on a Mac’ but you can do (and should do) so much more with this under used area of iWeb ‘real estate’. Read more
