I am familiar with HTML and have created websites with several different programs, including Dreamweaver, CoffeCupHTML, WordPress, Joomla.

PS Office Suites – I used OpenElement to design this website for a co-working space provider. I purchased the domain and opened a hosting account. I used filezilla for uploading.

ERP Associates– This is a WordPress site. Installed plugins for the careers page and the privacy page. Got images from IStockPhotos. Customized a theme from WordPress.

Prosperity Spring Travel – Created with OpenElement.

Now defunct Websites – I wrote a business plan for this company. I also came up with the name for the business, registered the website, and designed the site. Some of the copy I wrote, but much of it has been changed since I created it. – This was a site I designed back in the 1990s using basic HTML editor. I purchased a CGI script, installed, and customized it to connect freelance editors and writers with those who had projects. I had over 90 freelancers. That was the easy part. The hard part was getting people to submit projects and pay on line. A lot of folks were still pretty leery of paying online. – I designed this website using Notepad, totally with HTML code. It was a website for an orphanage in Taiwan, which I hoped would help raise money for the kids there.
