Who can get the most subscribers…

Paul Browne is running a competition with a few of the guys that are going to the Irish Blog awards, to see who can get the highest percentage increase in subscribers.  They are all using feedburner as the official subscriber count.  I wish I entered the race, at the moment I only have 16 subscribers so should have an advantage over some of the bloggers like Tom Rafferty who have over 700.  

I'm sure if I put my mind to it and used some of the tricks like  Eoghan Macabe I could get another 16 people.   Eoghan is giving away €2000 worth of website design to a lucky subscriber in the next few weeks.  

I haven't managed to blog as much as I would like lately.  I did have a new years resolution to blog more since November but I have been extremely busy with work.   I hope I win that competition Eoghan is running so I can get him to develop the Passion Development web site.  It is on my very long list of things to do but with getting married in July and buying a new house at the moment it looks like it is going to stay on the long finger for the moment. 

Best of luck to all in Paul's competition, I'm hoping to make it along to the awards so see you all there.


Add an Icon to your website….

I came across this handy web tool for converting image files into icons.  There are also tips for adding the icon to your website.  I gave it a go with my Passion Development logo and it worked great.

So, Where have I been?

Well, I have been pretty busy lately hence the lack of blogs.   Passion Development is up and running, well the company anyway.  I still have a bit of work to do on the web site. 

So why did I decide to start Passion Development?

In the last few years I have seen a lot of changes in the Software Development industry in Ireland.   Companies are constantly down sizing their product development departments, in favor of short term projects developed by contractors.   Gone, are the years of large product development departments that suffer from the quiet periods between projects.  In today’s software industry, if you are not adding value you are simply a cost.  

It is my aim to use the skills that I have developed to add value to my clients. 

Passion Development LogoI asked a friend of mine, Wendy Kavanagh of dynamo to design a logo for me that emphasized my passion and love for the work that I do.  I could not be happier with the finished product. It is made of an very abstract p  and d.  Thank you Wendy for all the hard work.  Now, If I only got to work on the content for the Passion Development Website, she could work magic charm on that too.
