LOLO Not really focused on the task at hand!! That's putting it mildly; as I just recently found out he takes some sort of medication. Lord!! I have THE WORST luck!
I do believe he saw the vision as far as the potential I have in accomplishing my dream of quitting my day job and making a living in my Jeep and in the off road industry in one capacity or another..I just think he may be better at something other than web design which involves all these codes and plug ins and whatever else...tech lingo..not for me..
It is Wordpress..I think the site looks ok..there's a couple things I need to finalize I think and then the next major part is the marketing. I'm one of those old school gals...Hate FB, don't want to be on it, but realize I need to, same with twitter etc...and I've gotten to a certain point with Youtube (I'm very challenged when it come to this stuff) I'm the girl that just wants to perform; in my rig, hosting an event, commercials etc etc I'm not the girl who plugs in all the tech crap LOL Geesh Lord
I have PMed someone already that I spoke to a couple weeks ago when I was starting to lose my mind with my web guy. I'd like to speak with him and see what his thoughts are with what my needs are right now. I need to make sure the next person is THE LAST person. I need THE RIGHT person. He may or may not be a fit. I don't know yet, but I will definitely keep you in mind. Thank you

Hi, I'm the zombiehuntress. I've been building sites for over 8 years. I totally understand your frustrations. I actually started doing it myself after being taken for a ride by a web guy long ago. It sounds like he was not really focused on the task at hand. I just need to know a few things. It looks like a wordpress platform. I can fancy it up with artwork and graphics if you like the functionality of this site or I can completely rebuild it. Once you have that you need a good social media marketing plan. Word of mouth is the biggest driving force to accomplish your goals. I can work with you on all of it. Do you have a Facebook/Instagram/twitter?

Building a site. I could care less if he wheeled.
I think he spent more time trying to figure out how to do things than he did build the site. I was constantly having to go in and correct things and resend things. He took so much time to do what should have been a pretty common thing in building a site. I'd ask him not to worry about certain things so we could do something else first, and he'd still do what I ask him not to which put what I wanted to do on the back burner..and for weeks b/c he had to figure it out first. I'm so completely exhausted from that guy.
Aren't you exhausted just from reading that? The battle it took for me to get the site online...Jesus..you have no idea. I met with him the first of Oct. He ask me to do this, that, and the other making me think that he was building the site...while the whole time, I had no idea I first needed to pick out a theme..WTH? So 2 months in, he's just now telling me that?? And then, I'm like IDK what the hell a theme is and what's best...then he asks me to resend everything I've already sent thinking he was building the site....OMG..it goes on and on and on...you have no idea. Exhausted.
But now, I need a new guy and I need to find someone who can help me and/or knows how to market it..I feel like a little part of my dream just died b/c now I have no knowledge really of how to go about getting sponsors and putting out media packages etc...
Kind of bummed about it all...but this guy was killing me. Not worth it.

|I H8RDS||I have to say, I'm really disappointed about the whole thing. I don't know how many times I've mentioned to friends that they should become supporting paying members ( and some have) because it's such a great site. I had them on my HOME page on my site as well as My links page as a recommendation to join. No agenda what so ever. Just was really happy here because of you all. This feels like a slap in the face. Pretty upset right now and that's putting it mildly.|

Sorry- got busy...
So, the site is finally up right? I got an email:
" Hi Lorie,
Site looks great! Congrats on getting everything up and running. I'm checking out your Advertising page. I'll talk it over with the rest of the team here and see what we want to do. "
Signed....an interesting Aftermarket Jeep Parts Company
How cool would it be to obtain my first sponsor?
