Welcome to the Level 1 Development Blog. This being the first post of hopefully many I figured I’d start out with a “hey how are ya” and discuss what I’ll be posting in this thing. So hey how are ya?….I realize you can’t answer that question so I’ll continue with the second part of the post.

I’d be remiss if I didn’t admit to selfish reasons for blogging about web design and development. See, blogging is a great way to get your website’s SEO rolling. SEO, for those of you who don’t know, is Search Engine Optimization. Basically means it helps your website get to page one in search results.  So of course that’s the main reason for blogging but that’s not to say I’ll only be posting boring, keyword saturated posts that don’t help anybody. I figure eventually someone will read some of these and, well that would just be embarrassing.  I hope to provide my eventual readers something they can take to the bank.

I consider myself both a designer and a developer. Similar to my Chicago baseball fandom, I ride the fence. It keeps me level. So this blog will be about all forms of web design and development. One post could be about how to keep your brand consistent throughout the entirety of your web presence while the next could be about useful WordPress plugins I’ve come across in my travels. Anyhow, I hope whoever eventually reads these can take something from them and find it useful.
