 In Wix world we are still talking about the old blog versus the new one. Those of you with fairly new websites will be using the new blog. And some of my longer standing clients may have updated to the new blog. Here's a checklist for what not to miss just because the...

Probably the least discussed factor of designing website is the rationale that goes into every decision, from color palette to font style, from rules on what photos can be used and in what way to content and title editing, and more. While these decisions can seem arbit...

It's really true -- a picture is worth a 1000 words, and often more. But for some of my clients and colleagues, they seem so hard to acquire for social media and blogging. So I thought I'd pass along a few thoughts on how to make this easier and more fun.

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!
