Lawsuits against website owners who are not in compliance with web accessibility standards dictated by the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WACG) 2.0 Level AA have become a thing -- and a rather expensive, PIA thing, too if you lose in court or pay a settlement fe...

Using the Wix platform to build your own website is not especially complicated, but it will take time and the specific (but minor) skills listed below. If you don’t have a couple weeks to a month to devote to browsing through templates, experimenting with editing tools...

Any online marketing coach these days will encourage you to stop thinking about your website as if it were a business card or brochure that merely tells people who you are and what you do.  That approach rarely influences potential clients to take a chance to make an a...

Why I've Retired

It's possible this will come as a surprise to you -- it certainly has snuck on me that I'm well past retirement age. Over the last year or so, my heart has been pulled in other directions, and while I still love the creative aspects of website design, I want to use my time making a life rather than devoting my energies to making a living. So I plan to travel, attend writers' retreats, work on learning to take good iPhone photos, and just be open to where my spirit guides take me. I have also stepped back from my esoteric work for 2020, and who knows what the future holds for that.

Please see the blog post for my two Wix designers who have earned my highest recommendations for serving my client niche.

All the Best to You!
