From the about page: “I also hope from time to time to write brief tracts, which might be usable by Friends for edu­ca­tion forums or as leaflets for vis­i­tors. I may also post pieces by oth­ers that I want to draw to read­ers’ atten­tion.”

DiMeo Blueberry Farms & Nursery

DiMeo Blueberry FarmsThe DiMeo fam­ily owns and oper­ates sev­eral of the largest blue­berry farms in the world, right here in the “blue­berry cap­i­tal of the world”: Ham­mon­ton, New Jer­sey. They have an exist­ing web­site that is hand-edited. We cre­ated a sec­ond site using Word­Press.
On launch it has much of the same con­tent as the other site, but arranged into posts and cat­e­go­rized and tagged for search engine vis­i­bil­ity. It also high­lights the DiMeo Blue­berry Farms’ Face­book, Twit­ter and Youtube out­lets. I’ll be inter­ested to see how it gets picked up by search engines and how vis­i­tors start to use it

Mike’s Precision Carpentry

Mike's Precision CarpentryMichael Oliv­eras is a long-time union car­pen­ter mak­ing the entre­pre­neur­ial jump and start­ing his own busi­ness: Mike’s Pre­ci­sion Car­pen­try, serv­ing the New Jer­sey, Penn­syl­va­nia and Delaware from his shop in Ham­mon­ton, NJ. He came to me look­ing for a web­page to adver­tise his new enter­prise.
It’s a sim­ple design, a typ­i­cal small-business site of half-a-dozen pages. The color scheme matches his busi­ness cards for a bit of brand­ing. Oliv­eras faced a prob­lem typ­i­cal for new busi­nesses: a lack of good pho­tos. The work he’s done for many years is not tech­ni­cally his own (per the employ­ment con­tracts) so for now the pic­tures are a mix of the few jobs he has done on his own and a few stock images. I’m sure he’ll have a well-rounded port­fo­lio before long and we’ll be able to fill out the site with his own work. In the mean­times, he added a cou­ple of great pic­tures of him and his fam­ily on the “About Us” page to give it that per­sonal touch.
