I consider knowledge I’ve gained as a gift that should be shared. After all, many shared their gifts of knowledge with me along the way.
Websites designed to inspire & just work simply!
Because everyone can have an impactful website designed that is simple to use and maintain.
No one (other than yourself) ever gets to see a person’s website until it is thoroughly designed, tested, and absolutely beautiful.
So I thought I'd do something different and actually allow site visitors to view this website "during" the design or redesign process. After all, if I would like you to see how I work ... what better way is there than to 'watch' me do my work.
I’ve always been a ‘teacher’ … and love to help others. I consider knowledge I’ve gained is a gift that should be shared. After all, many shared their gifts of knowledge with me along the way.

Why am I doing this (beside the reason I mentioned above)?
Because ... I know that people are curious ... (I alway am)!
How did they get their website to look that way? How did they format x, y, or z? How did they decide which banner or thumbnail size best worked to convey and represent their brand or their services on their website? (By the way, there are tools and things you can use to find the answer to some of those questions.)
After all, things don’t just happen by 'magic fairies'! You know, those same ones who do the laundry every week.
The truth is ... it takes planning, time, prototypes, demos, image placements, and so on, to get it just right. Connecting with the right designer and Squarespace make it very (very) easy and actually fun!
I love Squarespace. They don't pay me nor endorse me to say this ... I just do! I've been with them since Squarespace 5, which launched in 2008 and I started using their platform a year or so later. They've come a long way since "#5" ... and so have I.
Aside from beauty - aesthetics ... Squarespace is easy to use, adaptable for people with all different levels of ability. If you get stuck, their customer care is unparalleled! Whether via text, twitter, or email -- they are ALWAYS about finding the best solution for you.
In terms of the platform itself, it is rarely down! Occasionally if minor issues do occur, just check on their status page: https://status.squarespace.com/ or tweet them @squarespace https://twitter.com/squarespace ... they always respond quickly.
I'm using the Greenwich Template (A template in the Brine Template Family), with additional customized CSS and other custom coding.
