I’ve always liked building and making things. I like taking the parts and putting them together to make a nice package. I like crafts, cooking and puzzles. Completing a Sudoku puzzle on a Sunday morning is oddly satisfying.
But I’m not real patient. I like projects that can be completed quickly. That’s why I love building small business websites. It’s fun to take the pieces, the bits of text and graphics, and create a unique, functional and beautiful website for a small business.
In my perfect world, web design projects turn around quickly. Clients give me content, ideas and graphics. I create a draft website. They review and approve. And I press the button to make it live. Everybody’s happy!
Admittedly, it’s not always that easy. There is usually a little more give and take during the review process. I don’t always nail it on the first try. But even when the review process seems to drag on…eventually, finally, it’s oddly satisfying to press the button to make the site live. At that moment…there is instant gratification.
