Nine years ago a co-worker decided to start a bounce house rental business. He started working on a site and showed me what he had. He knew I enjoyed computers and asked if there was anything I could do to help. He and I worked together on his site. It wasn't pretty, but it was functional and easy to navigate.

About a year later, I decided to take my dad on a fishing trip on Lake St. Clair. While searching through the Google listings, I came across the "Art of Fishing" guide service. I had heard of Art Ferguson from following bass tournaments in the past and hired him to charter my trip. My dad and I had a great day on the water with Art with pictures taken. I kept visiting Art's website to see if our pictures had been posted. The pictures weren't up yet, but I did notice some changes being made to the site. I emailed Art to see if he needed any help updating the site. Art responded that he didn't need any help updating, but he needed 4 entirely new sites. The rest is history.

A few years ago I switched over to a Content Management System (CMS). What is it? It's a database driven system with an administrator section so the end user (you) can update your own site. No code knowledge is necessary. If you can use a program like Word, you'll be able to update the content of your site. However, if you just don't have the time, I still offer management of sites as well
