For years, I struggled with how to wrap everything I was good at, passionate about, into a service that people not only needed, but valued.
This blog is meant to inspire and motivate you to grow your website and dream a little bigger. When you get into the thick of it, WordPress can become exceedingly complicated to use, but understanding all the various puzzle pieces will allow you to build an eye-popping and snappy website (or know what's possible and get my team to help you).
Feel free to ask me a question and I might just blog about it.
The difference between free, license and membership options when you are looking at plugin functionality for your wordpress site can be confusing.
I have been to meetings where, more than once, it has been suggested that we skip the wireframe stage and roll right into the design.
Taxonomy in WordPress is one of those things that everyone use, but they do not know that they are using it.
Did you know, that people are trying to break into your WordPress website basically all the time, which may come as a shock to you.
Yes I am! It’s so important to make sure you have a system for user roles and what different people will be doing on the site.
The cost to properly plan, research, design and develop a professional WordPress website is a lot of work.
The power of images to communicate, to change minds and to create, is immeasurable but the world is drowning in images.
If I could marry a “thing” it would most definitely be a font. I love fonts because they are so beautiful and sexy.
Technology and the expansion of mobile websites are pushing web designers to re-think how their work is displayed.
Looks matter, but it’s what’s underneath the design that matters more and installing a bad theme can make you crazy.
It’s time to get down and dirty and build a DIY WordPress website. Let me give you the run down before we get started.
Plugins are powerful and handy and beautiful but just because you can add a plugin doesn’t mean that you should.
A sitemap tells search engines about the content that you have on your site and how often it’s updated.
There are a lot of tools and plugins at your disposal for your wordpress site BUT it doesn’t mean you should use them all!
Google’s tracking of your browsing habits is pernicious and insidious but very helpful, on the other hand, if YOU want to track visitors.
I always get asked questions about sizing photographs and it is indeed a very important detail for your site.
I wish that there were not so many new things to learn and I could just rest easy but alas, things keep changing, especially with video!
Taking horizontal videos seems obvious, but considering how many people still post vertically, it clearly isn’t.
I usually tell my clients that drawing people to your site is most effective the old fashioned way.
Allowing people to automatically receive your latest WordPress blog posts by email is a great way to build a following.
Two of the most popular hosting platforms today are YouTube and Vimeo and they’re both great options.
Mailchimp is easily my favourite service. The platform makes mailing lists easy and is funny and useful at the same time.
Choosing the right WordPress developer to create a professional website is like getting married.
