Jan Lehman contacted me last fall to discuss some content and design changes for her Can the Clutter website. The site was very narrow by today’s standards, forcing visitors to scroll to read even short blog posts. In addition, she was no longer happy with the bright colors. Jan’s original designer had created her custom […]
It’s been a while since I shared any of my website projects with you, but it’s not because I haven’t been busy at work! Although I’m best known for creating websites for professional organizers, I work with a wide range of solopreneurs. Over the past couple of years, I’ve designed websites for three women from the […]
It’s no longer enough just to have a website. Trends are changing constantly, and it doesn’t take long for your website design to look dated. Even if your prospective clients don’t know or care about what’s in style this year, if your website doesn’t project your professional image and your personal brand, it’s not going […]
If you’re bilingual or multilingual, letting potential clients know you can serve them in their own language can give you a significant edge over your competition. Diana Vela and Heather Shute did this by creating a Spanish page on their Moving On Organizing website. The ability to serve clients in their own language can be […]
When potential clients contact me about creating a new WordPress site, the two most common questions I hear are: How much will it cost? How long will it take? To estimate the cost, I start by asking a few questions of my own: How many pages of content do you need? Do you intend to […]
When asked for samples of my custom WordPress design projects, I’m always proud to show off the site I created for Moving On Organizing, even though it was a number of years ago. It was one of the most exciting projects I’ve ever worked on! Co-owner Heather Shute tapped into her background in interior design […]
I am such a huge fan of WordPress that I can barely remember what it was like to build websites any other way! When I say “WordPress,” I’m referring to the self-hosted type, often referred to as “WordPress.org.” Here’s how it differs from the “other” version. WordPress.com As a free service, WordPress.com comes with certain […]
I’m very excited to announce the latest addition to my website portfolio: Limestone Counselling, Coaching & Consulting is the private practice of Leanna Callum, a highly trained Individual, Couple and Family Therapist, Art Therapist, and Registered Social Worker in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada. Leanna and I were introduced this fall by a mutual acquaintance, and I […]
I’m often asked to create a starter website for a new business, or to redesign an older website. Recently I’ve been contacted by two organizers who’d had their websites done professionally only a year or two ago. In both cases, the organizer didn’t feel that the original designer had truly captured the essence of their […]
I’ve recently had the honor and privilege of doing a complete blog and website overhaul for Hazel Thornton of Organized for Life in Albuquerque, who is a regular participant in the Professional Organizers Blog Carnival. We’re both very pleased with the end result, shown below.
These days, most organizers have a website right from the get-go. Even if it’s a simple one-pager with contact details and basic information about your services, it is expected that a credible business will have an online presence. As your business grows, your website needs to evolve as well, to reflect your increasing expertise and […]
If you were to ask me what I like best about my work, it would be a toss-up between developing new WordPress sites and providing blog support to professional organizers, so naturally, I was thrilled when Clare Kumar contacted me about setting up a blog for her.
