- 13 is NOT an Unlucky Number!
Every May there comes a day where I stop and think - is this it? It’s always somewhere around this time of year. And I have to come back to my own blog to see when I posted in the past.
Today I nailed it right on the day.
13 isn’t unlucky. We’re celebrating 13 years in business as Boyink Interactive.
I’ve said it every year in the past and I will say it every year in the future - I feel so blessed to do what I do and I can’t imagine life any other way.
Who gets to do work they love and feel called to do, for clients they choose to work with, and live anywhere they want while doing it?
Seriously - if you see me complaining just send me a “boyink-slap” email and link me back to this post.
- Booking Spring Clients
Spring has sprung (my allergies can confirm it!) and here at Boyink Interactive I’m booking projects for the late Spring and early Summer of this year. If location is important we’ll be back in West Michigan from May through September. I’d love to work with folks in Grand Rapids, Holland, Muskegon, Big Rapids or any points in that rough area.
I’m also highly practiced at working remotely on client projects. If you aren’t in Michigan and need web strategy, web development, content strategy, content development, or technical writing services please do get in touch!
- Who Owns It?
I recently had the following language in a contract from a potential client. I’d love to hear your feedback on it and your thoughts on what it actually means. My wife and I both read the language and it seems to say both that I as the contractor would retain ownership of code that I write and that the client would own it.
Take a look…what do you think?
And I know…just get a lawyer.
But (dammit) I want to understand this stuff!
- Big Updates Completed
I have two big projects complete that were really all part of one super-big project.
First up - you won’t notice it much here on Boyink.com but we’ve just completed an ExpressionEngine update to get Boyink.com on ExpressionEngine 2. We also moved it to super-fast Arcustech.com. Yea - I see those raised eyebrows now. Only a few years too late, right?
The job was made more complex by the fact that I use a multiple-site manager (MSM) install of ExpressionEngine to also power the former Boyinks4Adventure.com site (our family travel blog). I say former because Boyinks4Adventure is now DitchingSuburbia.com.
- Ditching Suburbia Update
We’re working hard on our Ditching Suburbia project - here is an update.
