From Hobby To Business

I’ve been making websites for years. It’s a creative process and I enjoy it a lot. It’s going to be my new occupation going forward.

Things are coming together piece-by-piece. I’m putting together a portfolio of my work. A new website,, is nearly complete.

My goal is to put together sites for small businesses and professional practices. It wasn’t always true, but today anyone who has a customer or client needs a website. It’s the new first impression in the 21st Century!

All my sites will be handbuilt atop WordPress. WP was originally blogging software, but today it’s the world’s CMS of choice.

I’ve put together two sites for attorneys. While I await approval on the first, I’ll show you the second. It was built for my Cousin Melissa in California.

When DopplerDesign goes live I’ll spread the word… and hopefully you will too.

I Need Your Vote For My Good Deed

Vote once and encourage your friends to vote as well.

Last week I decided to offer the design of a simple website to a local charity or civic group. Let’s face it, without a website today some people don’t think you exist! I got a bunch of very worthy entrants.

I asked each entrant to write a little bit about his or her group. You can read those descriptions here.

Now it’s your turn to chime in!

All this week you can vote for the group you’d like to see get the website. They are listed on the right side of this page (and every other page on “My Permanent Record.”

Vote and encourage your friends to vote as well. If you click the “Like” button at the bottom of this entry it will post a link to your Facebook wall encouraging more folks to vote.

Good luck to all our worthy entrants. I look forward to designing your site.
