About Me

A small business web site is a crucial tool for attracting customers. Websites are a perpetual work in progress and there is always room for improvement… Or at least there should be. If you can’t control your own website and make changes to it when you see fit. If it doesn’t work the way you want it to. YOU SHOULD CONTACT ME. There are so many cool things on the web that are FREE and would make your website better that you should not hesitate to make them work for you – to help you bring your message to your customers.

It doesnt do you much good to grow your business or your web site if you are unable to grow your customer base as well. With that said is it best to err on the side of function and form over coolness? It doesnt have to which is one of the great things about the resources available as open source software and what i consider to be the most important part of a web site. Its core – the ability for a customer to edit, change and expand on their web site without having to call their web designer and wait for it to be done.

I have worked in many Content Management Systems including WordPress, Joomla, Geeklog, Drupal etc. but as of recently my favorite is WordPress.

WordPress is an Open Source Content Management System. Well what is that? Open Source is a movement started by programmers who believe in sharing their skills and their code. Content Management Systems are programming based web sites that allow users to update the content on the site with little or no HTML skill or other programming ability. Put the two together, you get WordPress. You also geet Joomla, Drupal, Geeklog and a host of other CMS programs – i can help you with most any of them.
