Hello all. Let me tell you a little bit about myself - I moonlight as a web designer mainly working with new businesses. I normally charge $300 - $500 for a site. My process has been speak with client, go home and work a few designs up in Photoshop, client settles on final design, Photoshop final design, slice it up and use Front Page to do the rest. For most of you, I know that sounds horrible. But it worked well for me and my clients has always been happy with the end results.
I have been playing around with CSS for a little while and that got my learning juices flowing. I have slowly moved into WordPress. So far I am COMPLETELY blown away at how much simpler and better this is. I can’t believe I wasted so much time in the past.
Here is my question(s): I would like to use WordPress for my current web sites and any new web sites – however, I am not really interested in the blogging aspect of the software. Is this a good idea or should I look at other software? I know you can make WordPress work, but am I starting off the wrong way? Most of my sites will be business oriented and possibly a couple will be e-commerce.
Please be nice when visiting the other sites. I am sure 99.635% of the people here would have do things differently and done a much better job than me, but it works and my clients are happy. It’s me that’s not happy anymore.
Thanks - Erik
