5 Ways to Improve Your Home

In the following post, we discuss a few tips to improve your home. While these add a fresh aesthetic appeal to your home, some of them also increase the value of the property.

Double-glazed Windows and Doors

This is a smart choice. It increases the value of the home and offers great comfort. Double glazing of the windows and doors can provide insulation against heat, cold, and noise. This will reduce the utility bills as the house will not lose warm and cool air in the winters and summers respectively.

The double glazed windows and doors use double panes of glass than the traditional single one. It is not the added thickness that provided the insulation but the air that is trapped between the two panes of glass. It may be a bit expensive but is cost-effective in terms that you save money in the long run. Continue reading 5 Ways to Improve Your Home

All you need to know about the history of taxi’s

The history of taxi’s

In this blog, I will tell you all about how taxis first started. The way the world has changed in terms of transport is so dramatic and no one ever really thinks about just how far we have come over the years. Taxis weren’t always around to chauffeur people about but there were other types of transport that taxis actually originated from.

Where did it all start?

Years ago, there were no such thing as a ‘taxi service’ or a ‘taxi company’. People would hitchhike to their destinations or they would walk. But, in 1823 a two wheeled, two seat carriage called a cabriolet was brought to England and introduced to us from France. This was a huge thing as people could get around the cities with ease and it wasn’t too expensive either. Continue reading All you need to know about the history of taxi’s

The secret is out!

The secret is out!
Ever heard of Rhonda Byrne? Well, maybe you have heard of ‘The Secret’?
The Secret was written by Rhonda Byrne in 2006 and at the time was a complete sell out! Everyone went mad for it! Because it was a self-help book, people soon started to realise that after they read the book, they could not get it out of their minds! Soon, more than 19 million copies were sold worldwide and the book was actually translated into 45 different languages!
Although, with everything good comes criticism as well. People criticised ‘The Secret’ and basically said it was a load of rubbis Continue reading The secret is out!

Search Engine Optimization

Things have evolved so much when it comes to the Internet that it is enough just to Google whatever information we need, and we will find it right away. It may seem simple, but it is not, because there will be more than one web page that will have the same type of content we are looking for. So how will the search engine know which one you display first? It is because the search engine optimization, meaning that the content on a web page was optimized so it will respect the latest requirements of search engines. And in this game, Google, which is the Internet’s mastodon, makes the rules. If you have a website, but very few or even none visitors on it, this may happen because your content is not optimized for the search engine.
Once upon a time, just having a website was enough to draw all the attention to your business or activity online. Today, this is far from being enough, co Continue reading Search Engine Optimization

Photography Takes me to a Wonderful Place

In today’s modern society, we tend to value two things, which are time and speed. We never seem to have enough time, especially to do the things that make us happy. And we always are on a continuous run from one place to another. We forgot to slow down and notice the small things that make this life enjoyable and fulfilling. So my XAMJWG photography project is a challenge to slow down and immortalize those moments we often disregard, caught in the rapid vortex of our everyday lives. To make this happen, I had to find a way to chase all my worries away and appreciate the simple things in life. I remember how my grandma used to tell me how people back in the days did not hurry, having time to contemplate their surroundings and find joy in what we may find insignificant. I wanted to try to capture those things in images. Continue reading Photography Takes me to a Wonderful Place

Photography & Web Design

Hi Guys i wanted to put an informative post up about about the interlace between photography and web design.. Enjoy!
Since the appearance of the camera, photography never stopped being a much-appreciated art form. Even in modern days, when technology is everywhere, and anyone is capable of taking a photo, this art form did not go obsolete. More than that, it is incorporated in the web design of many websites. Apparently, no high-tech graphics can be as personal as a photo can. People tend to identify themselves with a picture on the internet, making photography a sought after technique when it comes to online design. Regardless of the website’s theme, an experienced photographer will always manage to make those pictures that will be able to tell more than an informative text.
