See that picture above? That's my inner child today coming to the realization that I'm going to have to, sooner or later, convert my old Wix blogs to the new Wix blog technology.

I've been advising my clients to wait until the new blog has all the great features we have...

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...

Something occurred with one of my clients this week, and it prompts me to write this post. Life has been directing her away from her independent business, and she decided to scale back on marketing expenses. That lead to terminating her website. Somehow her domain also...

If you have had a Wix website for a while and have blog pages on it, this news may come as a shock to you. The blog you are familiar with is no longer available to be added to websites. At the moment, the old blog still functions, and you can still add new blog posts,...

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!
