My Story: I've had my own "sad" story about a website design and development project ... Bad experiences are all too common in the web world.
I turned my negative experience into a good news story - the creation of this website! I hope you find the information I freely share to be useful and valuable.
Feel free to share your story at the bottom of this page.
In 2009, I inadvertently wasted months of time and hundreds of £'s working with individuals (web professionals) to help create a website for a business my partner and I were trying to launch. The full website never materialized after weeks of receiving empty promises and assurances that "everything's good and on track".
As a result of my frustration and anger at being MASSIVELY let down, I vowed to learn as much as I could about websites so that I could make better decisions.
Given my background in the Information Technology profession since 1983, I thought "piece of cake".
During my own learning process, I realized there was so much to comprehend that a non-technical person might struggle to make sense of it all.
I definitely leveraged my "inner geek" to get up to speed quickly and turned my attention to helping small business owners with their web projects.
