The first question to ask when designing a site

The most important and first question to ask if you are designing the interface for a website is "What do you want the site to accomplish?". By that I mean, who is your target user and what user need does the site or service satisfy? If you can't answer that question, you might as well save you time and money. User experience is the key to a successful site.

Life Ten Years Down the Road

I have a message for those of you who are single and in college. Life gets more and more complicated as you get older. I know it doesn't seem like it now, but it does.

Life is not only more complicated, it gets busier and busier.

My best advice is to weigh your big decisions carefully. Find someone that you respect who is at least 10 years older than yourself, and ask for their advice.

Make your decisions based on what you want your life to be like in ten years.

Too Busy to Write

It's trade show/conference season, and I've been in RUSH mode for months now! The fact that I had time to log out a bunch of job tickets, and remember that I have a blog is encouraging. Back to the work! See you later.

New Year Wishes

I hope that the new year brings us all better communication.

I hope for peace and kindness.

I pray that we get better each day at following the golden rule of treating others the way we would like to be treated.... or better still, the way they want to be treated.

Life is a lot easier when we think of other first.

Happy New Year!

Brain Fog

Advising Web2 Immigrants— What do you think?

One of my Toastmasters friends asked me the other day if I would put together a 45 minute workshop to introduce other web2 immigrants in our local club to Facebook, and Twitter, and blogging. I think her idea is for me to launch the various sites, give them a tour, and let them see what it takes to set up the accounts and pages. She would like to blog, and she would like to check out Facebook, but has already expressed concerns about privacy.

What do you think? Is Facebook the best place to start? That's how I got started. I found it very encouraging to find people I knew who already had a presence in Facebook.

I have a couple of weeks before I'm scheduled to do the workshop. I'd really like some advice. What's do you think is the best approach?
