Default Hi from Indiana

I found your forum from a newsletter I subscribe to. I have been a small business owner for 6 yrs. running a cleaning service. My passion is web design. I started a freelance web design business a year ago. Would love to get into the web design business full time someday. You have a real nice forum here and I am looking forward to learning from the experts here.

Welcome Patti,

Sounds like you are quite busy. How long have you been working on web design? And what got you interested in web design while owning a cleaning business? We are so glad you are here. We hope this forum can help you learn more and help you with your business.

Thanks to everyone for the warm welcome. In answer to your questions Linda, I have been in the web design business for about a year now. I decided to learn web design when I needed a website for my cleaning service. I hired someone to design a website and it was one of the worst sites I had seen. After searching and searching for someone to design a website that I could afford at the time, with no luck, I decided to learn web design and SEO and design a website myself. After designing the first site I found this is something I really loved doing and learning. I studied web design for about 2 years. Completely self taught. I decided to offer my services to other small businesses who needed a web presence. Still have a lot to learn but I hope to be at the place someday where I can design websites full time.

Patti
