A truly fantastic representation of how us freelancers feel when a client tries to take the cheap way out. It’s undermining to the individual and to the web industry. This video depicts various scenarios that all send the same message to each and every industry out there. Whether one runs a freelance business, an upscale dining venue or a music store, no one should have to expect to pay or earn less than the true value of a product or service.

Well, we’ve made a decision. We’re getting married in fall of 2010, rather than 2009. Being a web designer, of course I’ve already thought up a wedding website idea! I created a layout and color scheme that encompasses fall colors. What are your thoughts of the proposed website idea? What kind of navigation links do you think are most important on a wedding website? Comments are welcome!

I’ve been noticing more and more food blogs out there in the Web sphere. Here are a few of my favorites:
Bread & Honey.
Bread & Honey is a cute, rustic type of blog that features food recipes with beautiful high-quality photos. It used to have two full-time authors, Summer and Alicia, however, it looks like Summer has moved on to different things. Great archive to dig through.
Foodess is one of the newest blogs out there that I’ve been following. The blog incorporates wonderful use of the latest web design trends (minus a favicon. okay, okay, I may be biased) and also features beautiful recipes with cook-as-you-go photography; always an added bonus. Side note: it appears that the awesome agency behind the design of this site is Pallian Creative of New York City.
This foodie blog site is called “JMUeats” and features posts by some gals from my alma mater, JMU. I love what they are cooking up — only wish this was around while I was a student! Keep it up girls and go DUKES! 😉

It’s called CommandShift3 and it’s quite possibly one of my new favorite websites. You know websites out there that ask you to rate a person? Well, instead of people, this site rates any two website designs side-by-side. You can even upload your own design and see how people are rating it. What’s great is that you don’t have to log in to vote!
