It is now November 12, 2015. The day after Veterans Day. Vetrans Day for me is a special day when I can say thanks to those you helped make America what it is today. I pray for all Veterans, those that are with us and those that are no longer, that they and their families are well and that they never loose the hope for a better world and a better America. If you are a Veteran than I salute you and say thanks.
Daylight Savings time has ended for the year and now I am back on Central Standard Time. It gets dark at 5PM and it will take a bit to get used to that but I am coping. The temperatures are turning colder, the leaves are falling and the house is a buzz with preparations for Thanksgiving. We are blessed to have a family spanning two nationalities and three colors. We are all healthy and my wife is expecting her first great grandson in early December. So we have a lot to be thankful for and a lot to celebrate. So I invite you to also celebrate your family and be thankful for what you have this holiday season.
As a freelance web site designer I enjoy a great deal of freedom and have a great deal of responsibility to my clients. I always need to be cogniziant of what is best for the client and make decisions that align with their goals. Sometimes this is easy and sometimes not so easy. Sometimes inexpensive and sometimes costly. But I always want to do what is right for the client and keep the project moving forward not to just a good conclusion but to a great solution. Having satisfied clients is paramount to my success so I always strive to make sound decisions.
I specialize in working with Joomla as the foundation of my projects. Joomla is in a period of change and I expect this will accelerate as a new board has been seated to guide the project into the next generation. As these upgrades occur I feel it is important to keep client sites up to date when ever possible. Sometimes I run across compononets that are not in compliance with the newer versions and upgrading the clients site would break it. That is where our site maintenance services become most cost effective because the client can rely on my expertise to keep them out of trouble and to get them upgraded when the tools used in their site are ready.
Thankyou for reading this blog entry and I hope you have a joyus Thanksgiving!
