For those who are just starting to dip toes in the waters of a solopreneur business, creating a website, and thinking about email marketing, there can be a lot to learn, and a lot to ignore. But determining what is beneficial and what you can afford to ignore can be a...

Do you have a Privacy Policy and Terms of Website Use page on your website?  If you don't, this is something to take care as soon as you can.  There are three good reasons -- 

1. Google requires it if you are using Google Analytics

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is the un-fun part of internet marketing, as far as I'm concerned. It's too close to tracking statistics and doing math for my taste, when I'd much rather immerse in the aesthetics of web design and the magic of content writing.

So I know...

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!
