I have been asked a few times lately by friends how I keep track of all the webhosts I have. This usually comes up when I state I have more then one or even say that I have 4 total webhosts.

I’ve seen a lot of articles and blog posts on how people should use Twitter but most of them are geared towards those trying to market themselves towards monetary means and how to get as many followers as you possible get.

On top of that, my boss and the marketing department was following me on Twitter, so this made me worried about saying something I shouldn’t and/or be a bad reflection on the company, etc. Then in January of this year, I had an epiphany.

When redesigning a website, the first and most important step that is so often overlooked is constructing the wireframe. I know, because I skipped this step for my first website redesign project (which contained almost 200 pages) and it resulted in major and unnecessary complications. Thankfully, with the help of my friends and the Internet, I have mastered website wire-framing. Now I can share this knowledge, to hopefully prevent hours of frustration for other website designers.
