1 year and 100+ posts!

Well it has been a year since my first post here on Website Design in a Flash, and this will be my 104th post!

Website Design for 1 year

This was my first blog that really got me started in the world of blogging, and I have learned a lot. I hope that I can continue to provide useful information for people working to tame the Internet. My posting frequency has slowed down over the last couple months, but I will try to pick it up again.

Here’s to another year of Website Design Tips and Tricks!

The Problem with Web Developers

This post has been dwelling within me for the past couple days.

I’ve been trying to find a responsible ASP.net programmer for a three-week project. Unfortunately we have a problem with one of those words: responsible. How do I know they are responsible? How do I know they won’t put me off for another project, even though I’m paying them top dollar to do this project right now?

Ask for references… Great, this guy made 50 websites in the last 10 years, and three of them are happy. I guess that means he’s responsible.

It’s a very tough situation, especially since it is very hard to switch horses mid-stream when you get into the complicated and extensive programming projects.

I think I’ve heard so many bad guys say this in movies… and I’ll go ahead and repeat it.
