This last year has been insane! The birth of my daughter, Stacie Maria, and the multitude of side-projects has caused me to completely neglect my own website and social media profiles. It’s been embarrassing to have to tell my web design and social media marketing clients, “Do as I say, not as I do.” That all changes today.
The New Website Design
I’ve decided to get back to the basics. This simple blog format will force me to post new content — no longer will my blog be hidden a few pages deep. There is also a new focus on selling myself as is implied by the extremely narcissistic version of my name/logo. Anyone coming to my site will definitely know my name. Actually the logo and design are just phase one of a pretty cool experimental idea that I have for the site. I should be able to launch phase two sometime in
mid-December mid-February [updated]. With that said, this site is still in beta testing mode so if you notice any hiccups or issues, please let me know.
A New Focus on Social Media
I also wanted to start focusing on my Social Media Marketing services since it now accounts for the bulk of my new projects. You can find links to my profiles at the top of this page. and if you look at the very top of the site you will notice a link to subscribe to my Social Media Newsletter. I started this newsletter last year, but put it on hold while I was working on a new format. That new format has arrived with a new life and a new name, GorillaTweets. The newsletter will launch as a “fun and easy” approach to helping small business owners understand and use social media in order to grow their business. Too many of today’s social media marketing newsletters are too technical, and down-right boring. We think that the new formula we’ve come up with will be perfect for new and intermediate users of social media.
Lots of New Projects in the Works
I have quite a bit of new projects also launching soon. Projects will include a couple of free WordPress themes, of course GorillaTweets: A Social Media Survival Guide (mentioned above), the Give Heart Project, Coffeehouse Magazine, a reseller-based WordPress Design Project, and quite a few more in the works for next year. I know that’s kind of vague… you’ll just have to keep reading my blog to find out more. To keep up you can sign up for my newsletter, follow me via my RSS feed, start a project with me, or connect with me via my social media links at the top of the site.
