Our friends Jay and Kristen (and their two small children) have been camping with us the last couple of days. We've been enjoying their company - swimming in the lake, picnicking outside, and talking about faith & family.
Jay started a real estate business with a philanthropic component this past year in Richmond, VA. He gives one tenth of one percent of every home he sells to Hope International to be used as a micro loan for families who would otherwise never have access to loans.
To support his new business venture, I spent several hours helping Jay launch a new website from the ground-up. I walked him through setting up a hosting service, buying a domain name, and installing WordPress. I also fielded his questions about how to choose a blogging platform, design and layout considerations, basic SEO, installing plugins to add functionality, and more.
Do you have a small business in need of a new website or blog? Please contact me for rates - I'd be happy to discuss custom packages with you.

haha me! I would love to know your rates... although I am "stuck" in an endless loop of still deciding what design changes I want to make for my blog... but it would be good to know if I can afford ya! :) feel free to shoot me an email with your rates if you like! :)
um... Yeah!!!! You know, when you and Stephanie first started this venture, I thought to myself that this type of thing (web development, tech support and education) would be a great way for you guys to go.... for both philanthropic and business purposes. Obviously, great minds DO think alike ;-). I'm so glad to see you post this today. Just in the nick of time for us and our business. I'll email you with more specifics.
Sounds good. I think you will be happier with a fresh start on the website.
I'm actually in the process of researching web design training. As a long-time print graphic designer who never messed with web stuff except to help other collaborators out - I know just enough to be dangerous :) but I've reached the point in my work where I have to learn and expand my skill-set or my business will never grow!
Do you have any learning resources to recommend?
