Not all #phobia s are irrational, including fear of #death  and others... #creepy   #anxiety   
Phobias can be tough to escape, especially thanatophobia and fear of the dark, holding sufferers captive for years in their not necessarily irrational grip.

Enter the weird world of phantom islands and other mystical (seemingly) places! #weird   #travel   #history  
Cartography wasn't always an exact science, and historic maps abound with seemingly-mystical phantom islands that vanished into thin air from the seas.

I had the pleasure of working with Skills on Toast late last year. When some key analytics code mysteriously vanished from our website, I spent more than a week trying to fix it myself but couldn't figure it out. During this time, we were unable to analyse our traffic and landing pages, which is an important part of our strategic management. Zoe fixed the problem within a day, and throughout the process was friendly, helpful and professional, keeping me in the loop on the nature of the problem and the necessary solutions. The price was also extremely reasonable and as a result I have turned to Skills on Toast again since then. I will do so again in the future and recommend Zoe highly.
