Why is a raven like a writing desk?

For some reason this little riddle got stuck in my head as a child, it has never left. The answer of course is never given but when you ask my youngest child the answer is “it isn’t don’t be silly”. Well I can’t argue with that really because a raven really isn’t like a writing desk.

So why is this in any way valid to the world of web development?

Well why is hiring a developer like using a site builder?

It isn’t.

You can throw hours into a site builder, perfecting your site design, making sure that your content is quality driven, and you can still miss a few tiny elements that mean that your site will never actually take off!

Your developer won’t miss those steps! They will make sure your design is modern, adheres to best design practices and accessibility in mind. They will connect you to all the databases, make sure your metadata (the behind-the-scenes stuff) is on point, and advise you on how to keep your site relevant and hitting those search engine high notes.

(You need to be aware that first page search engine ranking comes with a price tag!)
