Websites & Links

Sites:
Aside from pastels, I enjoy creating websites for people... something I've done since around 1990. Lately, I'm mostly using Google Sites to create websites, as they have a large feature set, are stored in the "Cloud"... available anywhere, and they have a CMS (content management system) that is easy to set up, use, manage, & maintain by the customer with some computer experience. There are 2 forms of Google sites; Google Free sites with an address of http:// sites.google.com/site/yoursitename, which are totally free but limited somewhat in size, and Google Apps sites with a .com or .org, etc. address that is purchased for $10.00 per year and now cost $50.00 per year per user, which is more suited for business, has more space & options, but is more complex to set up & maintain. All Google Sites lack some functionality due to their nature and their use of a CMS. For example; they do not allow the use of javascript, which limits the use of Slide Shows & complex Shopping Carts, but they do have a wealth of API "gadgets" that can be incorporated. One of these days, (soon), I will have to get a site up about web design & graphics, but frankly I've been busy with.... ummm... web design & consulting... & pastels.

Please feel free to Contact me if you have any interest, questions, or for more information & rates.

Here are some recent designs & consults:
