Intro from Hank:

I've been building websites for close to 15 years, mostly html, css, and a little bit of scripting when needed.

I'm more of a logic person and less on the creative / glitzy side which tends to make most of my sites more business like in nature. (See links below on signature ;)

I started coding html by hand then switched to Macromedia DreamWeaver Studio (Now Adobe) for most of my work. I was a programmer for many years, used Visual Basic for quite some time, and now use Visual Studio for some of my .Net development.

For fun I like to get on my motorcycle and ride. It's nice to get out in the open and a "leave it all behind" for a while.

ok I'll go next... I've been designing and developing websites for over a decade now (boy, I feel old now!). My partner and I run a full service multimedia company from sunny Panama.

I like design, but I also do a variety of other things like project management and marketing. And I leave all the dirty programming to my partner :-)

As far as languages go, php is the way to go. I know enough to make some simple stuff work, but this type of work definitely does not excite me, so I keep it to minimum.

Some of my favorite fun sites are youtube (of course.. good for relaxation LOL) and facebook. Facebook is super addictive. I've heard someone say that every day thousands of new members sign up to that site. I am not surprised. It's great for keeping in touch with all your friends (even the ones you haven't seen in years!)

But most of my time is spent working, reading, researching. My fun activities include Spanish classes and yoga. So that's my life. What about yours?

Thank you for starting this network! We used to have a web designer network on ryze, but there seemed to be some personality clashes and the network disappeared.

I have been designing websites for around 7 years. Before that I was designing writing and designing publicity pieces, brochures, flyers, marketing pieces, etc. So now I do a little of both.

For the most part I use Dreamweaver, but I also use Frontpage (if I have to) and do use Textpad when I just want to see the code. I do some javascript and I am trying to learn php, but just don't have a lot of time to devote to reading and studying right now.

I have my own web design company, Gizmo Creations LLC, http://www.gizmocreations.com, and also work part time at our weekly paper, http://www.pineandlakes.com, so I have a steady source of income while I build my business. I am hoping to quit the paper at the end of the year. I love working at the paper and have really improved their website in the past few months. However, as most people know, papers do not pay well, and this is a weekly paper so that makes it even worse.

I have an AA Degree in E-Commerce and a BA in Journalism. I have nothing against people who have learned from books and doing things on their own, but there are too many do-it-yourselfers out there who know how to click and paste but nothing about design. They also think that websites should be done for about a nickel and I believe they are hurting those of us who are professionals.

Nick Roy

My name is Nick. I am the Owner of 808image Web Design in Fort Lauderdale. I have been a webmaster and doing search engine optimization for the past four years. In that time, I achieved over 33 first page listings with 22 of them in the top five.

My current SEO client that I just signed. Salvaged Cars, Trucks, and Autos by SalvageZone.com - SalvageZone.com is a web site that specializes in salvage cars, trucks, and automobiles that are repairable and rebuildable. This company approached me to do the search engine optimization for their web site as part of a six month contract. This is including keyword research and content development of over 100 pages based on those keywords. It also includes a link building program that consists paid text link advertising and submitting to paid directories. Pay-per-click campaigns on Google, Superpages.com, FaceBook.com, etc. are also being implemented for this site.

Welcome to the group.

I took a look at your Icon Site and related items - they look pretty good. Others should take a look if they haven't done so already.
