I love your site. I love the look of it. I just love everything about it actually. I am so SLOW to creating the site I really like for myself and it was wonderful reading your insights. Thank you so much for your thoughtful responses.


More than happy to share! Please let me know if you have any other questions!


GREAT info. I have to agree on every single point. Not a lot of people realize this as you pointed out. Especially the thoughts on those who are crafty and try to do their own web design/site and the whole font thing. Drives me crazy!!!


Great tips! Thanks so much for the insights.


Well, I think you've always had a really good eye, C. I've never seen you do any of this - not that I can remember.

We're all guilty of it at some point in our web design learning curve. I certainly did this - granted, like 10 years ago when I was 13 or 14, but I still did it. You learn from it though. I think the really key thing when designing a site in general though, is to think like the customer - would you buy something from your site if you didn't own it?

I've been designing web sites since 1996 and I think the best piece of advice is #6. Whenever someone wants me to create a website for them, I always have them figure out a site map, so they know what pages they want and how they connect to each other. One thing that I've learned is that the design process begins with a piece of paper and a pencil not with the computer.
