A few years ago we were in need of some tree trimming at our house. So I asked a neighbor who had a large pine cut down if she would recommend the company she used.

I called them, had great results, and have used them several times since.

New to WordPress?

I try to move my clients into managing their own sites, so I am looking at WordPress to see if it is easy enough for them to use. What better way to do that than to use it myself?

Are you interested in managing the content on your website? Here’s a tip – create any content you wish to add to your site using a tool that will check your work for spelling and grammar. Most word processing solutions (Microsoft Word, etc.) will do this. In addition, have someone proof-read your content for readability and flow. When you’re sure it’s correct and well-written, copy it from your word processor into your website.

Your website represents you and your business – take the time to make it look good!
