We’re now using the NoFollow Free plugin for WordPress to clear the evil no-follow from our links. Okay, maybe it’s not quite evil…
There is a bit of a movement on at the moment – with a lot of bloggers wanting to remove the no-follow from links on their blogs. I’m not quite sure what the stats are at the moment – I presume most WordPress blogs are still no-follow, seeing as that’s how it comes out of the box.

Choosing a colour theme for your web design is one of the most important, and potentially most difficult things to do.
it’s not just a case of choosing the right colours, which complement each other. You also need to think about whether colours should be in relation to each other on the screen.
