This year, QR Codes are all around us.
We’ve checked in at venues to say ‘I’m here, let me eat with my family’.
We’ve scanned to fill in forms. We’ve scanned to do this that and the other.

The purpose of this video is merely to highlight, for a bit of fun, that WISH sells a ton of crap, and whilst it’s IPO information published today (7.12.20) says they want to raise over $1.1Bn …

The reality is I love my beard!
I can go for months and not shave it off entirely.

I am the kind of person who shaves at 9am and by lunch has a 5 o’clock shadow, a wet shave with it’s smooth feeling and closer shave reduces this at least for a day… a dry shave its almost instant stubble an hour later (it’s never close enough!). …

Even with the current pandemic, this isn’t something that has reduced, and with the data from the Google Studies we know that these searches are only going to increase as time goes on — making local search ever more important. …
Writing on Medium isn’t like writing for other website and platforms. Indeed if you’ve got a blog and figured out how to rank highly on Google — this is completely different. Or if you’ve written for a publication online or offline and realised how to gain huge amounts of engagement with those audience… then I am sorry to say this again is different.
