Client: Marian Pierce is a professional editor working in Portland, Oregon.
Project Description: Transfer the existing content from Marian’s old site into a fresh design, adding a Content Management System, blog, and mailing list.
The Inside Scoop
It always feels good to liberate fellow freelancers from the tyranny of old, persnickety websites. Without a modern Content Management System, it’s amazing how much time can evaporate just adding simple updates.
And this is why there’s still so many outdated sites moldering away on the internet!
So I commenced the rescue mission, transferring Marian’s old content to a shiny new VPS at DigitalOcean (afflink) running WordPress, and boasting enough speed optimizations to win a digital triathlon. I integrated Marian’s site with MailChimp (afflink) for her newsletter system, and hey-presto—good to go!
Of course as a writer, Marian’s content creation would remain in her hands—but I was at least able to provide the means by which she could add that new content with ease.
