Haha you know Renee, since writing that reply I have been noticing myself writing WE from time to time and not I. Mostly however I do use I.

There are also lots of times where the sentence can be re-written with ‘you’ instead of we or I, which ofcourse would be even better.

Im sure a lot of copywriters here would have thoughts on that?

Martin … well, since you have staff members, it would mainly be ‘we’ for your website, yeah?

Anyway, I know none of us want to misrepresent ourselves if we are indeed ‘flying solo’, but it does depend on the situation. With my copywriting hat on, it’s also tricky because in formal writing you’re taught not to use I.
