haven't been around much. Shooting like a fiend and over the last couple of weeks --got my first magazine cover, a local glossy real estate mag, and got what should be my third national tear, I'll post it when it's published yee haw!- and on top of all that have been spending a gigantic amount of time learning way more than I ever wanted to know about web hosting for a new venture we have literally just finished putting up a site for.

Anybody has a minute and wants to look over the site I would very much appreciate feedback of any sort. We're still tweaking.

Photo of me on the about page by the way is by my eleven year old daughter, I had a photo credit on it (big copyright symbol and everything) but she gave me that 'oh dad' look every time she saw it so I took it off.

New Website

BTW I'm not trying to sell anyone anything I really would appreciate your thoughts on the layout.

Thanks,

Shannon

Although I despise Flash, I like the neat, clean look of the site. My only nit is that the position of the main menu changes depending on the length of the page being displayed. Ah, also, there is no link to take you to the main page (AKA base URL). Not a biggie since it is just that designdirectionhosting graphic, but my habit is to hit a few pages, see if it is bookmarkworthy (new word), and go back to the home page and bookmark there.

Oh, and found a typo for ya:
[ QUOTE ]
a client list that includes some the top agents and agencies in Middle Tennessee.

[/ QUOTE ]

should be some *of* the top...

Cheers!

Glenn,

Thank you very much for taking the time to go through the site and your comments.

Truth told I'm not a big flash guy either but in this day and age we felt a little bit would be necessary for potential clients to see. We very purposefully kept the rest of the site in a very minimalist vein.

Oddly enough Dann does almost all his design work in flash, even the static pages on our site are technically flash pages, he learned the method from a pretty well known designer in these parts and swears flash is the quickest, easiest way to lay things out.

Our name at the top of the page is actually a link back to the home page, BTW.

And THANK YOU for finding that typo. You kow how it is when you've gone over and over something, you just can't really see it anymore.

Best regards,

Shannon

Shannon,

I agree, from a business and marketing perspective, Flash is probably the way to go, since, for some unknown reason, people love it. When you've been on the big I as long as I have (can you say BLINK and a web desginer using noborder on an image was a master craftsman), that stuff gets old fast. I want my information. I don't wanna see what you (the general "you", AKA ya'll) paid some artist a ridiculus amount to create with cheesy animation and a music track that not even a porn producer would appreciate.

Of course, I'm still confused as to what people have against Notepad as an HTML editor. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img] I guess if you have 13-item Leatherman (Flash), why use a butterknife (HTML)?

And it was my pleasure to help out. My wife on the other hand doesn't consider it helping out, she calls it nitpicking.

Cheers!
Glenn K.
