New ISH Medical WordPress Site

You might be most familiar with my artsy projects, but I also do medical and corporate wordpress websites, social media campaigns and email marketing projects. Being new to LA, my first freelance client has an innovative suite of medical programs and services.  The ISH has pioneered a new Sex Addiction-Induced Trauma Model that asserts the importance of not misdiagnosing the addict’s partner’s PTSD symptoms. Really innovative and advanced psychological research and medical treatment. Fortunately for me the ISH Clinical Director has a very attuned eye for design, white space and a beautiful new site.

The Madison Park Community Council is Online!

This winter I volunteered to make a new website and social media marketing plan for my local community council. They were an absolutely lovely group of people to work with and very grateful for this digital communications overhaul.  The new site is simple but indicative of the natural beauty in the surrounding area.  Nextdoor.com proved to be the most effective social media communication tool for reaching neighbors and getting them out to our special presentations and monthly meetings.

Great WordPress Plugin Guide

Love this infographic about the 30 most popular plugins available for WordPress. Over the past 3 years I have spent a great deal of time trying out new plugins to meet personal and client-driven needs. This list is great because it takes a lot of the guesswork out of selecting new plugins for your WordPress website. Plugins break often, but if you pick a popular one then its likely to be updated as WordPress evolves. Major time savings. On all my WP sites I use Askimet, Google XML Sitemaps, Google Analytics for WordPress, WordPress SEO by Yoast, W3 Total Cache or WP Super Cache. I’m also looking forward to incorporating some new plugins I heard about here – thanks WP Template for sharing this!
