I guess I deserted this blog about a year and a half ago, but I was recently asked to redesign a friend’s website, and it seemed as though a CMS was the best solution, so I am delving into WordPress.  So much to learn!  I’ve been reading an Apress book “Beginning WordPress 3”, and it’s a good start.  There is so much information out there about designing WordPress sites, that I feel as though I’m getting a bit bogged down.  My friend just published her first novel, and it is available on Amazon (although the publisher made a mistake ans sent them the wrong version), so getting the website done is a time-sensitive issue.  Which is good, because it will keep me moving forward.

I hope, that when this is done, I can start doing websites for other people and businesses.  The thing that has stopped me in the past is the design aspect of it, I can code, I can design a back end, but visual design was never a strong point for me.  With WordPress Themes, I feel I can now design a professional looking website.  I am very interested in SEO, and internet marketing as well, so, with practice, I hope to be able to provide a soup to nuts solution.  Good stuff.
