Where does time go? The other day, I’m thinking about how much this business has changed and I realize that it has been 17 years since I started making websites.
My first jobs were for our family reunion, the Town of Carman and my sister’s photography site. Back then we developed html sites and I learned from mistakes and also learned that you have to keep changing to meet customer demands.
I named the business Accent Web Design and thought how ingenious I was to do so as it would come up first in telephone directories. A couple of years ago, I was explaining to my 20 something son that fact. He looked at me and said “mom, that’s irrelevant, no one uses phonebooks anymore” Touchez!
How true it is that we go to the internet first for most of our reference.
The business evolved throughout the years with adding hosting and domain services.
Today, we develop mostly in WordPress platform – since it gives our clients the ability to update their own sites.
Keeping up with Social Media is a full time job. I look forward to the next 17 years, should be interesting!
