WINTER 2020

The New Year's Resolution. As I pondered the past year, I realized that "what I do" has become more involved than it was a decade or two ago. Some things are a little more complex. The demands and expectations a little more specific. And, some of the waters have become a little muddled for those starting out or contemplating something new. I am not complaining. I enjoy the work immensely. With that said, I have decided on a new way to present what I do and to explain how (and why) I spend my time on client websites. Thus, the rebuild of my own website.

My aspiration is that you may be able to glean some insights from my insanity. The thought is that I may be able to answer a few of your questions before you email or call. The concept for this started as just a thought. But, I am running with. That is how I do things. It seems to work for me. It apparently works for my clients.

My intent is to simply be as open, transparent and honest as I can about what I have to offer both new and existing website clients. I will avoid all the catch phrases and the jargon that have become too prevalent when discussing websites. The idea is to put the stories, facts and trivia into an accessible and understandable library. That way you will not have to read my multi-page email responses to simple questions, nor listen to my endless ramblings on the phone.

I am a firm believer in offering more information than you need. I believe there are no silly questions. Any suggestions I offer have been gleaned from experience. The mechanics behind what I do are inherently simple. Anything is possible on the web. But, not everything is practical. On a good day, I can offer a ray of reality to what being on the web is about. A very good day is when we look back on a project that was a little sketchy to start with, but turned out well.

You may agree or disagree with some of the concepts I present, but you will know my viewpoint before ever contacting me. If you find something interesting, have questions, or would like more information about the types of websites I build – simply send an email or call.
