It’s not just businesses or techy people that have their own website. Increasingly people are starting their own website to help promote themselves and what they do. Whatever your interest, hobby or passion is, running your own website is a great way to build your personal brand – to get your message out and let as many people find out about you.
One person who has set up their own website to is illustrator & best selling author Johanna Basford. She lives in rural Aberdeenshire with her husband, daughter Evie and a crazy dog called Simcoe.
Johanna Basford was working as a commercial illustrator for major brands like Nike and Absolut Vodka and drawing to unwind when she had a brilliant idea: Why not create a coloring book, but for adults? Nine months later, Basford had created her first book Secret Garden, a stunning colouring book inspired by Scotland’s Brodick Castle Gardens, where her grandfather was the head gardener.
Johanna has now created three books, which have now sold over 10 million copies and have been translated into 14 languages! With her website Johanna is able to display her work and communicate with her growing fanbase via her blog and social media.
Currently Johanna is promoting her new book Lost Ocean. Easyspace recently caught up with her for a chat:
The world record for the most expensive UK domain name has recently been smashed, with the sale of Gold.co.uk at a price of £600,000. Multi-millionaire Rob Halliday-Stein, founder of BullionByPost, has been named as the new owner of Gold.co.uk
Prior to Gold.co.uk the most expensive UK domain name was cruises.co.uk (£560,000) which was bought by Cruise community website Cruise.co.uk – who were obviously keen to get the plural version of their domain name.
