just for the record
Disclaimer: I know this post might come off as rude, but please try to think of it more as desperate. In this E-age (that’s Electronic age), your website says a TON about you or your business. ¬†A ton. ¬†This post isn’t to convince you to hire me or give me money for consulting. ¬†I mean, if that’s what you want, sure. ¬†I’ll do it! ¬†But please, all you people and business with outdated, incomplete, eye-jarring websites using frames and tables (with borders – gasp!), complete layouts using only primary colors, scrolling marquees and animated clipart - just fix it!
On to the post…
I just want to go on record saying that YES, I do web design, and YES, if you think your blog/website needs it, it probably does. Even if you don’t think so, it really might.
I could talk – er, write about this for hours, but let me just put it to you straight:
If your website looks like this:
or (shudder) this:
YES! You need a new site!
One of my biggest pet peeves is bad web design (it’s right up there with bad spelling/grammar and my husband loading the dishwasher totally wrong). Seriously, if you’re going to have a website that looks like those above (or anywhere near that), please please PLEASE hire a web designer. ¬†Especially if it’s for a business. ¬†I don’t care if you hire me or some guy from Montana, just please do something about your…situation.
A bad web presence is worse than none at all (that’s an original SouthernMother insight for ya’ll).
