Open Call for Talented People

March 27, 2008 * 13 Comments

Building websites and WordPress blogs ain’t what it used to be, I’m telling ya! As development on several platforms expands and progress – our clients are seeing some great new uses of these platforms all over the place! Not everyone is happy with the typical blog framework anyore of content on the left, sidebar on the right with the usual Recent Posts, Categories, Archives, Blogroll…and navigation menu on the top. That is sooooo…. early 2000, isn’t it? We’re looking at a new generation of clients who are seeing phenomenal things happening in the areas of CMS developent and progress adn […]

New Talent at E.Webscapes

February 22, 2008 * 8 Comments

I’m very thrilled to report that the response to my job posting for a new designer at E.Webscapes recieved such a large response. The talent out there is inspiring and I had the opportunity to talk to several designers from diverse backgrounds..it was really an interesting couple of weeks. Due to the large response, I had a very difficult time narrowing down the candidates.. but in the end, I brought on three excellent designers to the E.Webscapes team and I’m looking foward to working with each of them. At E.Webscapes, we are currently in the position of having way more […]

How many people truly mean it when they say they love their job? As a former employee, I can say I certainly know the feeling of waking up every morning and heading off to a job that I just did not like, but had to go to. I had many years of that and it really is very satisfying, now, to wake up in the morning to a job that I really enjoy. The past couple of months have been just a tad bit hairy. Business has picked up at an unimaginable rate – which is GOOD, don’t get me […]

WordPress Girl in a Movable Type World

February 3, 2008 * 29 Comments

Go ahead… ask me how I spent my weekend…. The short answer: in a designers hell. The long answer: I spent my entire weekend developing FOUR different blogs for 2 different clients – each of these 4 blogs developed and designed in Movable Type 4. And here I thought that old saying went like this: “bad things happen in threes” ?? My dear friends at SixApart – that was sarcasm.. but, really – does the template engine within MT4 have to be so unecessarily complicated? Maybe I’m just simply a spoiled WP Girl? Call me crazy, but I do sorta […]

The Un-Design and 10 Great WordPress Plugins I'm Using

January 3, 2008 * 36 Comments

I announced earlier in the week that I was planning a redesign….and I really, really was. Except, for now – I’m not. I’m too indecisive, can’t make up my mind, can’t concentrate on anyone thing with the end result … well, the almost end result, feeling pretty disorganized. My problem is that I don’t have enough time to devote to my own stuff right now and it was feeling too forced, without any good damn reason for the redesign to begin with – – except for the fact that I’m tiring of the lightness of it all. I’ll just have […]

I'm going dark

December 29, 2007 * 12 Comments

No, I’m not going underground and hiding out – – my design is going dark! I’ve been SO white and pink for way too long and I’m feeling a dark period coming on. I’ve been working on my new redesign for several weeks, in between client projects – – adding to it, taking away from it – – throwing it all out the window and staring over. No big spectacular plans for anything mindblowing. My goal here is this: simplify with style. I hope you’ll like it – – for that matter, I hope I like it! My time for […]

Random Post Holiday-ness

December 27, 2007 * 0 Comments

Hectic! That’s the word for the week, to be sure! Hectic, but productive – – and productive is always a good thing. I had gotten myself a little bit behind on a few things – – which is ALWAYS a source of major stress for me. There’s nothing I hate more than having overdue items on my to-do list. My list is generally pretty long – but those overdue items mock me and stare up at me with distain. I hate it. But, there’s only one thing to do when things like that happen – – just put your nose […]

Post-Turkey Day Success

November 25, 2007 * 3 Comments

The deep fried turkey was a raving success at Thanksgiving dinner. To all those who emailed with luck and good wishes, I’m happy to report that we did not burn the house down! The turkey was completely contained within the frier the entire time..yay us! We actually fried the turkey outside, so I didn’t even have a chance to obsess over the potential of fires, and the like. I wish I would have gotten a picture – – Chris rigged up this pulley system with rope and eyehooks in order to lower the turkey into the boiling oil. It was […]

Future of Web Design

November 4, 2007 * 1 Comment

I’ll be in attendance at the hottest design event this year – the Future of Web Design in New York November 7 & 8. I’m excited about attending the different workshops and presentations planned for those two days. I’m really looking forward to giving my inspiration a kick in the ass! Many have emailed to ask if I would be attending the upcoming Blog World Expo in Las Vegas, but unfortunately the two events are held at the same time and I couldn’t find a (reasonable) way to be in Vegas and NYC simultaneously! Boo! For those attending Blog World […]

WordPress Girl

September 1, 2007 * 22 Comments

There are reasons people know me as a WordPress Designer – other than the fact that I’ve written the book on it. I’ve been developing/designing WordPress sites since 2003 – – and I think in blog time, that’s almost ancient. Occasionally, however, I do get requests for designs on different platforms (like Movable Type, Typepad, Blogger, etc). Rarely – – and I do mean very rarely, I get an order for an Expression Engine site. I think in the 5 years I’ve been doing this – I can count on one hand how many orders I get for Expression Engine […]
