This blog is for all website owners not just designers

It’s not just us designers that need to know this information. Recent times have developed a necessity for many small business owners to learn skills unrelated to their profession. To run a business, we all need to have an extensive skill set which is unrelated to business management or the actual job we are doing. If you didn’t have a need to “be your own designer or developer” you probably wouldn’t even be reading this blog post. So here goes… Welcome to a list of incredible resources every business owner, graphic designer, web developer and DIY fanatic should know about and be using.
