6 FAST Steps to Create Your Own Website!
steps 1, 2 & 3

Scenario 1: You have been using one of the free or managed website systems such as Weebly or Wix for your voice over website, but you’ve run into a wall. It simply won’t do what you need it to do. You’ve outgrown your free service, and in order to expand you have to pay their rather high rates. But even if you go that route, you don’t have complete control over your website.

Phew!  I think I covered my butt pretty well there. Onward…

Mobile-Friendly Websites Are the Law

Posted June 16, 2015

(Note: I wrote most of this on April 21 when Google began implementing their changes.  However, rotator cuff surgery made completing it difficult.  Time to get it out there now – it’s still valid!)

Mobile-friendly, or responsive, websites are the law… at least as far as Google is concerned.
