Dad was a mechanic. I feel like the website work I do is like being a mechanic. Others design and build the cars. The mechanics keep them humming. I keep your websites humming right here at home with my wife, cats, garden and visits by our grandchildren. In fact, our mission is to repair and keep your website humming like a fine roadster. Yet I am in contact with “parts” suppliers, specialists and other mechanics all over the world.
A Brief History or, how Scott’s web shop opened.
While in grad school studying experimental psychology at San Diego State University my thesis chair and lead researcher, Al Hillix, gave me a room of new Apple II computers. He said, “Scott, now you can set up a lab for our students to use in their research….”
At a nonprofit, a board member suggested posting my Teen Grief Support Group Curriculum. This would save copying and mailing of the 103-page document. A colleague started me on Frontpage. I became the accidental webmaster for family, friends and colleagues.
Now I’ve pretty much retired from bereavement counseling – at least working in hospices. I continue with my love for exploring computers and the web. I returned to school to upgrade my understanding of computers. Studies included HTML, CSS, PHP, Webserver security, Dreamweaver, WordPress, and Joomla. Website learning, though, is never finished. I learn more every time I open a site. I’m forever taking courses to improve sites timing, er, performance.
My passion is finding and using tools and techniques that support and improve websites.
The goal of my web shop is to help non-profits and small businesses improve their websites by:
- Finding the best platform such as WordPress or Joomla,
- Getting or keeping your website safely running well so
- Your site is easily found so that Clients will
- Know what you offer,
- Find what they need,
- And will find what else you offer.
