Proudly advertised boldly up front and center. I can only guess at how many paint contractors are seeing this ad and seething as they think […]
No, not Twitter and no I am not talking about some weird trip from the 60s. I am talking about tweaking. Constantly editing and improving my website. Especially my writing. Yes, I admit it. I edit articles I’ve written after I post them. A friend of mine told me this was a blogging no no […]
This week marked the first birthday of www.warlinepainting.ca. Does that surprise you? If it does, it’s probably because I haven’t shut up since I got here.
