I don't know what it is about people and building a website- so many of the sites do look like a 12 year old built it. Problem is most don't know their website sucks. Just because you know how to html code doesn't mean you are a designer. Great post.

Thanks Michele,

You're absolutely right!

Conversely some designers are just 'electronic artists' as Tom Antion says, and think they know something about business. My electronic artist is great - knows their strengths which are many, as well as weaknesses (and I've gotta thank Tom Antion for being in the book too).

As a professional developer, I build dozens of web sites... the back end, non visible side of them. I can code HTML, and CSS and all the other alphabet soup stuff, but I don't.

The reason is I am a great developer but I am NOT a good graphic artist or web experience engineer. I leave that stuff to the folks that know that area. And it pays off big time.

Just because you can do a thing does not mean you should do it.

"Just because you can do a thing does not mean you should do it" is a great quote!

Reminds me of an old roomate who claimed, "I can cook" :) We quickly learned he shouldn't.


Thanks for the realistic approach:
"I often help them to fix their Web sites first."

Important thing to note: a blog is not the answer to problems in SEO. Plus, chances are: if they are having difficulties building and maintaining their current site, they will screw up the blog too!

Everything you publish should be your best, if not, don't put it out there!

Agreed. There is too much 'junk' out there. I don't mean content we may not care for, but poorly formatted and non-functional. I don't try to make things perfect, but certainly functional and very useful for my target audience.
