What is this blog about?

This website is for web design clients. When I say “you” in the text of this site (which I will do a lot), that’s who I’m writing to. I would loosely define a web design client as anyone working with a web designer or other web professional to build or maintain a website or web presence.

If you are a small business owner, a non-profit director, an artist, musician or anyone else trying to get web work done, this site is for you. I hope you find something useful.

Some of what we cover on here might be interesting to web designers too, so if you’re one of those (as I am), feel free to stick around.

The general idea is to help clients get good web work done by helping you (the client) gain a better understanding of how web design works.

One of the biggest hangups that keeps websites from being as good as they could be is that web designers and web design clients often don’t understand each other. As you learn more about how the web works, you’ll gain some insight into how web designers think, and that should help you get the results you’re looking for from your website and your overall web presence.

I will often use the terms web design and web work interchangeably, or at least somewhat interchangeably. There’s a lot of work that goes into running a web presence that wouldn’t strictly be defined as web design, so I refer to those things as web work.

I chose to call the site Good Web Work because the intent is to help you get good web work done, whether that means web design or any other aspects of running a web presence. Also, goodwebwork.com is a lot shorter than some of the other alternatives.

I will assume you are smarter than me in most areas of daily life, but when it comes to web design and web work, I will assume you know nothing. I want to be clear rather than confusing, and it seems the best way to do that is to start from the beginning and go wherever we need to go from there.

Being clear also means being direct, so I might write some things that sound harsh regarding common mistakes made by web design clients. If I refer to one of your favorite techniques as being misguided or insane, please take it with a grain of salt. I’m just trying to shoot straight and it’s only my opinion anyway.

I’m just a working web designer and don’t claim to have all the answers, but feel free to ask any questions that are on your mind via comments or using the contact page. I’ll do my best to respond or to point you toward a resource that might have a better answer than I can give.
