Web Design

I am very pleased to offer affordable WordPress web design to other authors and small businesses. WordPress is my platform of choice because:

  • It’s easy to use
  • It’s inexpensive to set up and maintain
  • It lets you customize, tinker, and re-design as often as you want

WHAT IS WORDPRESS?

The WordPress universe encompasses WordPress.com and WordPress.org.

WordPress.com allows you to maintain a completely free site, with options for paid upgrades. Your site will come with automatic security updates and spam-fighting features built in.

WordPress.org allows for greater customization and has better e-commerce options, but costs to maintain the site are higher and maintenance is more technical.

Feel free to ask for more information about either/both types of WordPress sites!

QUALIFICATIONS

As a lawyer, author, and entrepreneur, I am well-versed in the topics authors and business owners need to know before establishing a brand and online presence. I will provide you with information and support on:
