Hi, I’m Chris Jenkins, President of ImTheirWebGuy.com. I’m a St. Petersburg, Florida based developer and web strategy consultant who has built an amazing team of web professionals tailored to one mission: empowering your web presence. We are passionate about usability for both you and your users.
If you need a website that works for you, and that your users love, give us a call at 727-320-5348, or head on over to our contact page.
Just a quick announcement to say, WOO-HOO! I was one of the folks picked in Google’s #ifIhadglass contest. We like to stay ahead of the curve around here, so getting an early chance to play with cutting edge technology is what the Web Guy is all about. If you’d like to follow along with my Glass adventure, check out our blog over on MyLifeInGlass.com.
As any good journalist knows, when there’s a question in the title, the answer is usually “of course not”. However, if one were to believe the wave of paranoid hyperbole circulating through the media, Google Glass will end privacy as we know it, turn us into drones, or at the very least, signify that we are assholes. Perrenial tech gadfly Adrien Chen notes:
“Google’s defenders will suggest that this is the ranting of a backwards luddite. They will point to cell phones, another relatively new technology. Would you call all cell phone users assholes? No, just the ones who talk in public restrooms when there’s a long line. But in the early days of cell phones, the loudmouth on his brick of a Motorola cell phone was very much shorthand for asshole.”
One of our clients recently began using MethodCRM to handle their sales/coordination process. It’s a pretty slick web based CRM tool which comes with some nifty plugins like their GMail integration (shown here). The challenge was to redirect our CForms data gathering form (which previously posted to Google Docs) to now post to MethodCRM. There were a few obstacles here: Continue reading →
As you probably noticed, we’ve given the site a facelift. It was long overdue, and two things in particular prompted the change:
1. We’ve moved beyond just the single web guy concept, and needed to address that.
When ImTheirWebGuy.com started, it was just little old me doing everything, and the site was personally branded heavily because of that. Thanks to all of our amazing clients, we’ve had a ton of growth, and have brought a few new people on (more from them in the future). Since there are more people involved now, I wanted to move toward a brand that recognized the team effort that makes all of our projects happen.
2. WordPress released a Beta of their new Twenty Thirteen theme.
As many of you know, I like using the default WordPress themes as a base. Many of the sites we’ve made in the last twelve months began as Twenty Twelve. With the public release of the new theme, I wanted to get a head start working with it, as I have two clients right now that may benefit from it. This version is called Thirteen Business, and takes a muted professional approach to the theme.
So, how’d we do, and what do you think of the design?
