Hey guy’s and gal’s,
Being a website designer, I’ve been working diligently in understanding and learning to
implement the upcoming HTML5. While the basic HTML Framework is compliant across
all browsers, it’s quite a different story when it comes to HTML5. Continue reading
Hey Guy’s & Gal’s,
I know the economy is tough these days, and sometimes you just don’t have the money to hire a website designer, a graphic designer or even a programmer for that matter. So I decided to cut to the chase and do something that is rather unheard of in my circle of developers.
Now I know that you could probably go to Freelance.com or even Fiverr.com and get everything you need for your business really dirt cheap, but here’s the problem I see with those solutions. Many of the people on these websites that are vying for your business, many of them offer no support after the project is completed.
That’s where I differ. You get my undivided attention long after the project is finished.
Here’s what one of my clients had to say:
Dear Tim, You have done a fantastic job on my Word Press blog and I want you to know how happy I am with it. I am more than pleased with your knowledge and customer service. You handled all the technical stuff that I was struggling with and you completed it in record time. Even after the site was completed you helped me even more any time I asked and you always responded quickly. In my opinion, that is the best customer service and what makes you so unique from other services online. I am not a huge fan of submitting a ticket and waiting 24-48 hours for a response, and with you it is the complete opposite. You were always available by either phone, skype or email. I have to say that you saved me at a time I was ready to give up on WordPress. Your technical expertise and customer service are the best that I have experienced. Kudos to you and I will definitely be coming back and referring my friends. Thanks again for all your great work and support!

Selecting the best background color and font styles for a web page is a very important part of quality web site design.
When selecting a background color for your web page, make sure you select a background that will compliment your text and overall design.
Selecting the Best Background for a Web Site
- Busy backgrounds make text difficult to read and draw the attention away from the text.
- Always be consistent with your background theme on each page of your web site
- Colors affect your mood and will have an effect on your visitors as well. Bright colors, such as yellow and orange, will cause you to become more cheerful or happy. While colors, such as blue and purple, have a calming effect. Dark colors such as brown and black may cause you to become depressed.
A good rule of thumb is to select colors based upon the type of affect you’re trying to achieve.
Selecting the Best Font Style for a Web Page
When selecting fonts for your text, keep in mind, reading on a computer screen is much more difficult than paper. Try to use a true type font, such as Arial or Verdana, and avoid fancy fonts that are difficult to read.
The appearance of your web site can mean the difference between your success and failure.
I’d like your comments on the topic above. Let me know what you think.
Thanks for reading and have a wonderful day.

What CMS Program do you use?
- by Timothy Caron
Hey Guy’s and Gal’s,
With the advent of CMS (better known as a Content Management Systems), many new comers to the web are still having website designers and programmers develop static websites that need constant updating by the website designer or programmer.
And this cost you alot of money. The average website designer may charge you in excess of $50 to $150 for a simple update. And there is no need for this, let me show you the advantages of using a CMS program for your website.
1) Ease of use
2) You can add or edit all the content yourself, this puts you in control of your website.
3) Interaction, visitors to your site can interact with you by posting their comments on your articles.
4) Adding Plugins or Modules, these plugins or modules can totally transform the functionality of your website.
Plugins for shopping carts

Plugins for Support and Message Boards
and the list goes on.
Plus there are hundreds if not thousands of free templates that you can use for your CMS Program, especially if you use some of the most popular programs like WordPress, Joomla, Drupal or even Blogger.
Let me know what CMS you use and how it helps you with your business. If your not using s CMS program and your interested in more information just let me know.
Until next time, have a wonderful day.

Creating a Web Site That Works
When most folks begin the process of creating a Web site, they generally become preoccupied with developing a handsome theme. But, placing too much preference on fashion over function could lead to a loss of business.
The look of your site is very important. In fact, major corporations spend millions of dollars researching colors and themes that convey their business ideals to site visitors. For instance, many news related sites use dark blue or navy as a primary color. That’s because dark blue conveys a sense of being authoritative and official. A site advertising a day spa is likely to use pastels because they are soothing colors. So, when creating a site that works, choosing the colors and themes has less to do with your personal preferences and more to do with immediately conveying the overall gist of your business type to your potential clients.
