Another month has passed and it was quite a good one for me… i got confirmation of a degree, broke traffic records with theleavingcert.com and went to london for a few days…
I was always confident i’d get a degree and even predicted the exact grade it’d get which turned out to be right. So this wasn’t a surprise and as a result it didn’t mean that much to me at the time. Still, it was a historic day. First formal qualification in IT, first degree. I have to at least acknowledge it although it means nothing to me now… the novelty of having a degree lasted about an hour. It will now be buried in the back of my mind until it comes to CVs or interviews.
I launched fbdislikes.com in June with Ross Beale who at long last has his own portfolio site 😉
A short while later, we stumbled upon an old idea i had, talked about it and both agreed it had massive potential if done right. We’ve also teamed up with Matt Davenport to form a three-pronged attack on this project 🙂 This is the sort of idea i’ll drop everything for and work on exclusively. It ticks all the boxes on paper and as i said before, it’s the type of site that once launched, you’ll wonder how nobody ever thought of it before.
Record traffic, a takeover, plugs in national newspapers, successful social media engagement… theleavingcert.com has already had it’s best year in 2010 and of course we’re only half way through 2010 Attack, attack, attack is the mentality now. Keep the momentum going, keep everything rising…
From the 16th June – 19th June i was in London on a mini break. I’ll be doing the same later this month too. I had free wifi in my hotel so i was able to keep blogging throughout and upload pictures day by day.
Although i was really pushed for time and rushed those posts a bit, it’s a fantastic way to look back and recall the trip day by day.
