Hoffman Graphics is on the move
From my last newsletter you may recall that for the past six years my husband and I have been actively involved in creating a new cohousing community on Capitol Hill. When last I wrote I said “We are fast approaching the move-in date which is tentatively looking like March 1.” After many stressful delays we have finally just moved! WHEW! For those of you who like to keep your address book up to date, my new address for visits and checks is now 1722 12th Avenue, #302, Seattle, 98122. AND…if you ever had my cellphone number it no longer exists. My office number is now also a cell which means I’m even more accessible. So you can continue to reach me at 206.726.0598.
Another new website launched
For the last couple of months I’ve been working closely with marketing colleague Virginia Felton to makeover the Church Council of Greater Seattle’s ten-year-old website. We’ve just launched it after a week of very positive user testing. The site includes a comprehensive and interactive directory and of course is mobile responsive. Check it out at: http://www.thechurchcouncil.org.
Cool Tips, Tricks & Resources
- Safely share passwords using this free site: https://pwpush.com/
- My friend and colleague Mark Root-Wiley blogs weekly. This is a convincing post about why homepage slideshows are no longer the way to go.
- Better Blogging Tips ala Dr. Seuss from Judy Dunn
- And another tip from Mark Root-Wiley on his non-profit site:
A website is never “done.” If you haven’t reviewed your site in a while, it’s likely that something is out of date. Is your Staff page showing all current members with accurate emails? Has one of your programs shifted focus? Have you accomplished something major and not shared it with your website visitors yet? Click through your site, edit what’s out of date, and make a list of what you need to add or significantly revise. Remember though that just because something isn’t current doesn’t mean you should delete it.
