    I didn't know much about webdesign before I got started and basically took on the project to force myself to learn CSS since I am on winter break from school and don't wanna be a lazy bastard. CSS is a shitload harder than it looks and no nudes!

    after I made the site I decided to do this:

    http://www.bluecollarconnected.com/

    those of you that have experience with website stuff can you tell me what I need to watch out for, especially in the "services" part. I'm only gonna take on really small projects since I work and am in school full time. With watch out, I mean to make sure I don't offer too cheap or what not. Target market is small contractors with 1 - 5 employees. Gracias

    would be cool if when you click a picture it loads inside the box, rather than open a window

    I pitched that to her but she declined cuz I charged more for it. Maybe I'll do it for free and then guilt her into my bedroom

    I think I'm lucky that I know a lot of people in the construction industry that only want some small online representation. no backend whatsoever. It'll get me some extra book(beer)money for school. I will do some lynda flash classes next week, though, just cuz I like to nerd it up a bit

    my thoughts...

    - you overcharged her

    A semi pro would have done that work in about 2 hours. Since you are looking at doing small jobs on the side for extra beer money, the 360 you made off this should have been $100 and the extra money you hand back to the client and tell her to spread the word to her friends.

    She would have loved getting that site for 100 and really, you would have still made money for the amount of work put into it and she would have no doubt told others.

    If anything I got from this or any business, what you do with your first few dozen clients can do wonders for the next 100.

    So, yeah. Go back and offer to clean it up and move the pictures out of the popup and into the main frame for free.

    That's an alright looking website, somewhere between novice and pro. I like your business idea.

    Yeah no shit.

    $360 should cover the page, domain, and even hosting for at least a year. Blue collar bullshit will make her look like Larry The Cable Guy's slut.
