    Creative Vision Web Consulting and Peaceful Wraps are Moving

    The farmhouse

    Since August I not only had two knees replaced, but we also purchased a small Bucks County farm to expand my business and grow new ones. It’s difficult to believe that in 3 years, so many changes could occur within one family, but that’s exactly what has happened with mine.  One minute we were going through the excitement of watching our new house being built, living with my in-laws, moving into the new house and getting settled, and now we are preparing to move out. Why? Three years ago, I didn’t have my hobby business, Peaceful Wraps and more recently, the macramé art. For Creative Vision Web Consulting, I began to have client meetings in the kitchen, since my office…

    Kim and Matt during podcast

    In July 2017 I traveled to Ohio on the invitation of well-known author, speaker and teacher, Matt Bailey of Site Logic Marketing to be interviewed on usability. Over several days we chatted about the old days of the Internet and our career involvement in the SEO and Usability industries.  Matt creates easy listening podcasts.

In 1996, I was the webmaster for a magazine publishing company.  I was assigned to the publication about the Internet. I got the job because I taught myself HTML, owned Cre8pc.com, and animated the magazine’s mascot, which impressed the magazine editor. He had given me my first big break.

    A Career in The Midst of Change

    Woman sitting alone

    Returning to being a consultant has been anything but easy. I almost quit. But instead, I started a new business that has nothing to do with tech. Flapping in the Breeze Since 2012, when I sold Cre8asiteforums to Internet Marketing Ninjas, nothing with my work life has been routine. The one constant is that I’m a workaholic, compounded by an urgent desire to know everything under the sun. But, whenever I applied for employment in towns near where I live, I was turned away. My heart is broken and remains so, when you consider that I’m still added to those articles that feature “pioneers”, “women in tech” and “UX people to follow”. Sure, I pick up usability testing gigs from…
