Q: How do you stay so strong and in control of yourself?
A: Don’t get it twisted, I lose control too. We all have our times when we fall apart and not feel strong. But what makes you move on is actually the inner strength you always had within. Just learn how to channel that same energy into bettering yourself and surviving out of your worst. I channel mine through sex, drugs and rock & roll.
Q: OMG, how can I make a website?! Can you show me how?!!!!
A: OMG Sure!!! Step By Step Instructions
Q: I heard that you __________. Is that true?
A: Yup, it’s all true. That will always be my answer. I’ve realized that no matter what you say, people will still believe what they want. Regardless if the truth is staring right in your face. During my tenure on the world wide web, I’ve learned that people will judge you according to what was told to them. So why bother prove myself to anyone?
Q: Why you don’t approve all of your comments to be posted?
A: I am all for a healthy debate. If you disagree with me, by all means, feel free to express such. But discriminatory & anonymous comments I will not allow. I wasn’t a coward by putting my opinions and point of view on display so neither should you be. Don’t be a punk bitch about it.
A: After dabbling around in AOL Hometown pages back in 2003, I wanted to expand and learn how to make my own layouts & graphics. I downloaded Adobe Photoshop and it was a wrap from there. Viewing so many of my peers out there doing the same motivated me even more. I wanted to do what they did. Then I started getting a lot more feedback for my blogs than my actual designs. It felt good knowing that my website has helped many through some rough times in their life. I hold that feeling very close to my heart, which is why I continue to blog.
Q: Why don’t you ever reflect on your experiences as a mother or post pictures of your daughter?
A: There are certain things in my life I like to keep private. My daughter’s pictures, my relationship with her father, and my trials and tribulations as a mother are a few of them.
Q: I just got of a 4 year relationship and I feel so lost. Where do I go from here?
A: Mapquest it.
Q: What advice can you give a young mother trying to figure out what directions to take in life? Finishing college young or working full-time and doing very little schooling?
A: It depends on your resources. Do you have a strong family support? Are you able to juggle school, work & a child? It takes a lot of dedication & patience. It also takes a toll on your emotions. You’re going to feel alone, tired & frustrated. It’s definitely a struggle, however, it makes you a stronger wiser person. Just make sure you pick a major/study that you’re truly interested in. That way everything won’t seem like a “task”.
Q: Have you ever considered writing books? Your blogs are amazing!
A: I thought about it but I’m not too keen on being in the limelight. I’m okay with being popular, but not famous. I don’t think I would handle celebrity status too well.
Q: I want my website redesigned, something similar to yours, so why did you quote me $650?
A: You’re right, what was I thinking? I shouldn’t have quoted you $650. I really should have quoted you $850.
Q: Help me understand why web design is so costly. Can’t I just upload a WordPress theme and be done with it?
A: Web design isn’t something as simple as 1,2,3. Yes, you can use a WordPress theme and “be done with it”, but why settle for a theme that many people will recognize from other sites? Which is why people seek others, like myself, in order to help them achieve the look and functions of their website. To get that unique eye-catching look. Graphic designing, HTML coding, CSS styling and PHP alterations are very time consuming. Some designers pay by the hour. Most start out at $2000. Especially if you’re in need of an online store. My rates are very reasonable, considering the turn around time of completion as well. I put my all into every website as if it’s my own. That, including my outstanding work ethic, my aim to please, and the OCD I have for website perfection, is why you’re paying me anywhere from $650 to $1200. Plus the fact that I’m good at it as well. (:
Q: I noticed in your portfolio a few websites have the same template. Why did you do that?
A: Clients often request for their website to have the same layout and structure as another website. Most times, the website is one from my portfolio. I will not deny a client from using the same template I used for another website, however, I will not duplicate graphics, color schemes and/or content. You also can request for me not to use your template on any future clients as well.
Q: I have an online stalker that keep harassing me. This girl hates me so much and it’s been going on for YEARS! What do I do about it? How do I make her stop?
A: Chances are, she won’t stop. Ever. Don’t take it personal, because stalkers are obsessed with you out of jealousy and/or mental issues. My best advice is to just ignore her. If you start to suffer from mental anguish, you can sue her and possibly have her arrested.
