On stx, does anyone have any recommendations for a website designer? I know we can go off island but would consider a local firm if I knew one. Thanks.

Great websites are so easy to make these days that you really don't need a designer anymore and as such, there isn't much money in it for designers.

Try www.wix.com

By far the best and easiest.

Umm... no. Good websites are easy to make these days. Great websites still require a professional. If you don't know the difference, have any designer do a makeover on your out-of-the-box "custom" self-designed website, and you'll learn a lot.

Also, if you want anything more than very basic features, you'll want a pro involved so you don't wake up one morning to find your site hacked, or wonder why something is suddenly not working right anymore (and spend hours figuring out how to fix it). There's no substitute for good design and properly written code.

Sorry, I have an issue with people saying "It's not hard to do yourself" for any professional service. It's not hard to build a masonry wall, either -- you can find everything you need at Home Depot and watch a tutorial online about how to lay block. Anybody can probably build a wall that will last about 5 years before crumbling. Somebody with some experience can probably build a wall that will last 30. But a professional mason can build one that ain't goin' anywhere, ever. If you value what you're building, invest with someone who knows what they're doing, whether it's websites or walls.

Unfortunately, I don't know who on STX does this work. Let us know who you find!

My wife does basic web site work pretty in-expensive & also is a marketing major.

who ever you get make sure you get a couple of example sites for reference so you can see what kind of work will be done.

one of my wife's sites is northlandboerboels.com
