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...

Website designers and computer techies speak in a language that is not always comprehensible to normal folk. And unfortunately, when purchased computers don't come with a vocabulary list. Wouldn't it be nice it they did!

So just like it's good to know how to say s'il vo...

Curl up, get a drink, get comfortable -- this is going to be a long but important blog post. Vital to understanding how websites work is having a solid knowledge of the three inter-related hosts that are required for potential clients to find and contact you.  These th...

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!
