Icon3 Somethings aren't a given...

The biggest pitfall that many new writers fall into is free hosting, resulting in their page being polluted with advertising.

Add in clashing colours and poor typography - basically all the mistakes people made when they first started using DTP - and you have a disastrous website.

That's why, as authors become more successful (or take their vocation more seriously) they employ people like me.

Hey Mike C.,

Somethings aren't a given when it comes
to understanding what's needed. So that's
when helping others gain that knowledge
and better understanding is so important.

My goodness if that was proof positive to
what authors are "...all givens for any kind
of site" then there are a lot I see who just

may don't know because their focus is on
bestseller... not Web Design 101!

It's a great feeling when you've helped
others learn something
new that they can
implement on their own or
just walk away
feeling more empowered.
Don't you agree?

Continue to have an OUTSTANDING Friday!

Won't Be Denied,
