Improving my web site is always my biggest priority, as well as improving the web presence of my clients. I make my thoughts known about graphic art/web design/internet marketing known in my blog on my website, and through my new podcast, which needs a couple of new episodes. I would like to actually conduct interviews, since I have Skype. To find my blog and learn more about what I do, visit my profile. My web site address is on it. Or google Computer Publishing Concepts.

I like your topics but would also be curious to hear things on how to write content in a way that interests potential clients.
