Web Guy for Hire

Over the past 7 years or so, I've often dreamed of making a career of independent web work: contracting for a company here, creating small business websites there, working on my own projects in between. While the projects (and therefore income) have been far from steady, I've done some really fun projects. One recent project of note is Cardinal Points, a website for my neighbors' small business.

I want to point this out for a number of reasons. For one, in the vast spider web of links on the internet, search engines reward those sites that are linked to. Also, there's something to be said for promoting local business. (Anybody need a water maker installed on their boat?) Finally, I wanted to use this as an example of the fine work I am capable of. (You knew there was going to be a plug in there somewhere.)

Do you or someone you know need a website: small business, blog, photo gallery, event announcement? Perhaps just a touch up on your current site, or adding a bit of that fancy Web 2.0 functionality? I'd love to help. I charge about half of what you'll find elsewhere (thanks, in part, to my low overhead*), but have the experience and skillz* that rival the best. I won't go into more of a pitch here (because, let's face it, 98% of BdW readers have as much need for my services as Saxtor has need for a blog (ZING!)), but if you have any interest at all, contact me and I'll answer all your questions.

Is this where they invite you onto their boat with a case of Mt. Dew in tow?

Maybe you could make me a website! I need it to make loads of money, require no maintenance, and allow me to spread my witty opinions across the web. I am thinking maybe a professional spamming program? or some underhanded bank scheme? maybe a phishing ploy! Or, maybe I will just work for a living...sigh.

P.S. nice site! If i ever get a boat (hence my need to make money using the diabolic schemes in post 1), I will go to Frank for all my drinking water and generator needs.
