The Business of WordPress Design using WordPress – Video Three
Hi Gang! In this video we’re going to put together the five essential tools you need to succeed using WordPress.
Fortunately, they are all free or of little cost, so you don’t have to have much money to get started.

Work environment for web designers? Yes, I know, I know it all sounds totally boring. But come on guys, we all have been there before.

Hey James, this week I am working on the most exciting project ever – I am designing a new website for one of the most popular radio stations.
