Someone Outside of Your Company Should Edit Your Website Copy

As the resident writer/editor here at LongerDays, I have some bias on this topic… I tend to think that just about everything – from website copy to restaurant menus, print advertising to casual social posts – could use a good editor’s review. My own work is no exception. Neither is yours!

The Power of JOMO

You’ve likely heard of “FOMO” – the fear of missing out. The term gets tossed around all the time these days, and with good reason: our technology saturated lives have made it an epidemic… A constant consequence of being connected to one another around the clock. Surely this idea existed before social media, but when we can see, at a glance, multiple times a day, all of the things others are doing, the result is bombarding.

WordPress 5.0: Update With Caution

WordPress, the mostly widely used website platform around, has released a massive update to their editor… And it’s causing some trouble.
