You have all heard the Idiom: The shoemaker’s son always goes barefoot? Well being a web designer, I can relate!! My web site was in dire need to get redone, but just like this idiom, my site has been pushed to the back burner. So as the new year started my goal was to get a new web site. I started it in November and again pushed it aside for the holidays. 2017 started and I felt a determination that it HAD TO GET DONE. So I pushed through, and BAM, it is completed!
My old web site was designed in 2007! Yes, that is 10 years OLD! As I tell my customers, and average life span of a web site is 3-4 years because technology has changed so much. I looked at my old web site prior to pulling the plug. It had some flash elements across the top, an animated GIF on the home page, it was super small in width due to smaller monitors and it wasn’t mobile friendly! Now my new web site is responsive, full width, simple, yet very professional!
So please don’t judge me because my site was old and I am a web designer, just remember, I was working hard for my clients to reach their deadlines, and maintain their web sites!! I kept saying to myself “I need to get a new web site for me after I am done with this next project” Thanks to my customers, I have been kept busy with lots of projects!!
Thank YOU so much for the years of support, loyalty, and new friends through the journey! I am looking forward to a great 2017.
