Emily Bouchard, of Blended-Families.com, was my third customer back when I went full-time in SEO and web development in 2003. We met at an entrepreneur’s boot camp in LA. I built her initial site from a simple template and coded all the content myself in HTML/CSS.
Through my SEO efforts, I was able to get her site into the top 10 Google search results, and keep her there, for years. Over the years, I served as her on-demand webmaster, updating the site, and even creating other related sites for various marketing purposes.
In 2012 she insisted I update the website. I coded the entire 40+ page “by hand” in HTML, CSS, and some PHP. Here’s the 2nd version of the site, which you can click to enlarge:
Then a couple of years later, Emily was ready for another change. The result was the current version of the site, which can still be seen at Blended-Families.com. This latest version was built with WordPress so that Emily could update her site on her own.
