What's going on in Web Studio 'Marita' | Co się dzieje w Web Studio 'Marita'

EN: Hi everyone!
Just a quick update. So, what is going on in Web Studio 'Marita' right now? Yeahhh, it's very busy time. Two websites under development, one regarding glass gifts from Scotland, the other – it's kind of surprise, so I'm not going to reveal now. Anyway, I'm very excited about both projects.

Thistle Displays - Glasgow - Large Format Printing | Exhibitions | Signage

In meantime, I work on SEO services for Thistle Displays. As you probably know already, they specialise in large format printing. So, if you based in Scotland (Glasgow, Edinburgh, Stirling, Falkirk, Aberdeen, St. Andrews, Paisley, etc.) & need to print banners, posters, billboards or want exhibitions stands, signs, window or vehicle graphics, just visit Thistle Displays website & contact them.

Mother's Day in Twisted Willow | Bespoke Florist

I also work on online marketing for Twisted Willow website. The website was a while ago updated about Mother's Day page. They have some bouquets ideas for your mum, but really you should talk to Caroline, bespoke florist in Twisted Willow, since she is able to create the bouquet for you, whatever idea you have. Delivery on 30th of March – Mother's Day – is also available.

Another update & projects details soon.

PL: Witam wszystkich!
Taka szybka aktualizacja. Co się teraz dzieje w Web Studio 'Marita'? Taaak, to bardzo pracowity okres. Dwie strony WWW w budowie, jedna dotyczy szklanych pamiątek ze Szkocji, a druga – tego póki co nie wyjawię. Jestem bardzo podekscytowana tymi projetami.

Thistle Displays - Glasgow - Large Format Printing | Exhibitions | Signage

W międzyczasie pracuję nad usługami SEO dla Thistle Displays. Jak już zapewne wiecie, specjalizują się oni w druku wielkoformatowym. Tak więc, jeśli mieszkasz w Szkocji (Glasgow, Edynburg, Stirling, Falkirk, Aberdeen, St Andrews, Paisley, itp.) i porzebujesz wydrukować baner, plakat, billboard czy chcesz stoisko na wystawę, znak firmowy, grafikę okienną lub pojazdową, odwiedź stronę internetową Thistle Displays i skontaktuj się z nimi.

Mother's Day in Twisted Willow | Bespoke Florist
Dbam również o marketing online dla witryny Twisted Willow, która jakiś czas temu została zaktualizowana o stronę – Mother's Day. Mają oni pomysły na bukiety dla mam, ale tak naprawdę powinniście się skontaktować z Caroline, florystką w Twisted Willow, ponieważ jest ona w stanie stworzyć bukiet wg Twojego pomysłu. Dostawa w dniu 30 marca - Dzień Matki (w UK) - jest również możliwa.

Kolejna aktualizacja i szczegóły projektów wkrótce.

I got inspired – Women in the Creative Technologies Conference at UWS

Last week I attended a conference at University of the West of Scotland (UWS Paisley): Women in the Creative Technologies.
As most of you know, women have difficulties to get a suitable job in creative technologies areas. These types of jobs are ‘reserved’ to men.  It’s a men world – we can say. Therefore, it’s very important to encourage women to apply about jobs in creative technologies, and advise them what to do to be successful in it.
From year to year more & more women study creative technologies (Web & Mobile Design, Computer Networking, Music, Animation, Games), but still this area is mostly occupied by men.

Therefore, Evelyn FitzPatrick (teacher fellow at UWS) organized conference to support the other women. I can tell it was a women power.
The keynote speakers pointed out some important issues, and at the same time they advised us - women, regarding career development. Let me just list a few of them:
  • be self confident, be brave,
  • advertise yourself as ‘brand’ (on CV or covering letters, in personal contacts, online: on social media, blogs),
  • do not limit yourself, develop your interests/hobbies,
  • get involved in projects/events/conferences,
  • use STAR model at interview to articulate an example (Situation * Task/Challenge * Action * Result),
  • remember how important mentoring can be – ask your superior to be your mentor.
Maggie Morrison, Anne Giffort, Lucy Evert, Frances Rowan

Rebecca Hasting, Rowan Milne

 The other very helpful subjects were also in the agenda, like:
  • when to start looking & applying for the job,
  • who can help the students & graduates to find a placement or job,
  • who can help with their CV,
  • advantages of volunteering,
  • freelancing – advantages & disadvantages,
  • social media – common mistake that might cost you to loss your job,
  • how to properly use social media to advertise yourself in the job market,
and many more.
Example: how to NOT use a hashtags!
Remember, every single life & jobs experience leads you to find your best career path. However, be brave to explore the different paths to find THE one that will take you to the dream job.  If you like your job, you will be successful & satisfied.

I truly recommend attending such events like Women in the Creative Technologies Conference; no matter you if are woman or man. The tips & advices are for everybody, and from my point of view, this conference was a huge success. I'm happy & grateful that such events are organised in UWS – the university that I graduated from.

At the end of my post, I would like to attach a video presented at the conference that shows how weird we act at social media (online). If we transfer these behaviours to real life, it would be really bizarre. Just take a look:

Support your local businesses that offer high quality services & products

Have been thinking lately about our local businesses, the quality of the services or products they offer, and here it is what I think. There are a few points to consider while choosing the right company.

First one is own experience. Once you have been served the way you liked, or received the services or products you are happy with – you should stay with this company. Of course you may try to find competitors, compare the companies, and assure yourself to the right choice.

The second point – reviews. Your family, friends, neighbours can recommend you some services, simply because they are satisfied with the services received.


The third aspect: search the Internet.  Check the company website, if it's clear, nicely edited, you have no trouble to find all needed information, and moreover easily contact the business, then you are in the right place. If the website contains testimonials - read them. Check as well social media for recommendation and other business directories that can help you to be completely sure.

What made me think about it? – My recent personal experiences.

I have been in beauty salon with my friend, and on the day of our appointment, the lady in the reception firstly asked us to come back in half an hour, because of delay! She did not offer us to wait in the salon. My friend was booked on 2 pm; I was booked on 3.30, for 1 hour Swedish massage. So, it was 30 minutes break between our massages... However, do not forget that it was half an hour delay. So, my friend went on 2.30 pm for her massage. I was waiting for my turn in the salon. The other lady came for her treatment, which was – guest what – yes, the 1 hour massage. Moreover she was booked between my friend & me! I do not know how it was possible. The reception lady, first asked the new client to come half an hour later, like us. In meantime she asked me, if I agree to reschedule my treatment (???). I said: I need to speak with my friend – since she booked both massages. The reception lady insisted, I said: we’ll see. The other client came back, after half an hour, and sat next to me. She asked me: are you waiting for the massage? I said: yes, but I think it will be cancelled, because it is delay. Then she said, if you want I can reschedule my, so I thank her for this favour, and was happy that my treatment will be done. So, the nice lady re-booked her massage, and went. You do not believe, if I tell you that the reception lady said that she must to re-book my massage as well. She lied to me for the next 10 minutes - she came up with contradicted excuses. My friend massage was finished, so when she found out what just has happened she was angry & said that we never use these services in this salon again.
So, this experience just shows how easy you can lose not only 2, but many more clients if you not treat them with respect and you do not offer the highest quality of your services or products.


On the other hand, if I think for example about flower bouquets, I know for sure that I can always count on Caroline, who is bespoke florist in Twisted Willow. Thinking about the unique flowers arrangement she’s doing, I can truly recommend her services to everyone. She’s making flowers bouquets no matter what the occasion it is. Assuming that the Mother’s Day is coming, I can assure you: if you order flowers from Twisted Willow for your mum – you will make the right choice. That’s for sure.



I also can truly recommend other local businesses that I’m sure everybody can count on, like a property maintenance services. FRL Property Maintenance Services is Paisley based company, who offer wide range services such as: Decorating Services, Internal Building Works, Maintenance Services, External Building Works, 24h Landlord Support. For details visit their website here >


The other local business that offer highest quality services & products is the Thistle Displays. This new company is really trading company of Outdoor Branding which has years of experience in large format printing area. The Thistle company offers wide range services like: poster printing, billboard printing, roll up banners stands, pop up displays, exhibitions stands, coffee banners, vehicle graphics, window graphics, outdoor & indoor display boards, and many more. If you need a sign for your store or coffee banner for your unique cafeteria or poster which advertise your exhibition, visit  Thistle Displays website now, and contact them for help. They will be more than happy to assist you.



I need to mention here Baltic Firewood Company, since they have really impressive feedback from their customers. It is still freezing during the nights, so it is good idea to make your home warm & cosy place. Do not allow your family to freeze out. You may order high quality firewood logs from Baltic Firewood. They deliver free straight to your door. The prices of the birch logs are competitive, the service is great, and more over the quality of their hardwood (not mixed with softwood) is really high.


Summarising, if you are happy with your local businesses that offer you high quality services & products, then stay with them, support them & recommend to your friends, family & neighbours.

Do not forget about Web Studio ‘Marita’ – recommend us, if you are happy with our websites, SEO & Internet services.
