The Smartass Series #1 -- Guide to Building the Perfect Website: a Narrative How-to on Five Top Web Advisors You Should Use instead of this Know-it-all who Knows Little
~A man [woman] is a success if he [she] gets up in the morning and gets to bed at night, and in between he [she] does what he [she] wants to do. Bob Dylan~
I’m smart. Wicked smart. Too smart for my own good. At the same time as they said when I was as kid and as it still applies, I’m too big for my own britches.
So I put those prissy pantalones to some good effort and I teach others how to write. I win a few awards, send a few hopefuls off to higher learning institutions where they in turn win their own awards and accolades. I do this till my seat gets burned one too many times by the politics of academia, and I go into freelance writing.
I research for 1000s of hours, submit to literary contests and magazines, start working writing gigs, and keep researching. I build a web site. With what it costs to maintain an ISP and web hosting account and little else, I create this ambitious masterpiece, believing I am now a self-taught web host, writer, teacher, and confidant for academic writers, mental disability writers, and elder memoir writers.
But as your confidant, I have to confess: as much as I’d like to think those 300 hours of study and application for usability, keyword-rich, to-the-letter-of-the-law of interstate/inter-country/internet navigation design and creation make me a self-taught smartass, I did little but the legwork by myself. Actually, five virtuosos of the web world made making a website possible:
-Jakob Nielsen- After creating a really bad mess of a site overloaded with spinning, flashing, color blobs of coolness, I discovered www.useit.com/alertbox and Dr. Jakob Nielsen. His stellar advice, delivered in a no-nonsense tone, is backed by his many years of theoretical and practical work. After reading and studying articles such as the following, I completely reconstructed my site:
Current Issues in Web Usability
-Ed Zivkovic- As I was catching on to using the experts to build a user-friendly, usable site, I was catching on to the language that indicates the writer knows what he’s talking about. This is the redeeming value of Ed Zivkovic’s site, Tips for Work at Home Webmasters, at www.ezau.com. He uses candor and directness. He provides technical content in understandable terms. And defying the popular and trendy, he tells you directly and honestly what is crap, what is not crap, what is effective website technique and what is a waste of dough. Try some of these instrumental articles for starters:
Domain Name and Web Hosting Hell
-R.I.G.H.T.S., www.rightsforartists.com- As any artist/writer will attest, the work that goes into creation is an interminable challenge. But we do it because we like it, because we are good at it, and because we have to do it. We are compelled to create. But we do our own work, not the work or art of others. This site contains all of the legal and ethical guidelines for copyright; R.I.G.H.T.S., a coalition of contributing artists rather than a corporation or organization, that is thoroughly, relentlessly provides information, definitions, answers, and directions for copyrighting and protecting creative work.
-Firelily Designs- Just as much about the science of such vital concerns as color design for web users with color vision deficiency as about aesthetics of webdesign, this site practices what it preaches—as it preaches, well, teaches, graphic design. I don’t create my own web graphics. That would take me a year or two to master, when I have enough to do with getting words crafted into readable forms. But I found the advice on color at www.firelily.com fascinating and functionally useful.
-Angela Hoy, Writers Weekly- There are writers newsletters aplenty. And then there’s Writers Weekly. What does the site and the owner have to do with web design, specifically They are proactive protectors of writers and creative people, in general. Hoy stands up for the rights of freelancers by refusing the requests of tightwads who solicit her to recommend writers to work for 3 bucks an hour on copy for them so they can make millions while the writers starve. Hoy encourages the ethics of hard work by way of informative how-tos. And Angela Hoy, with husband and co-owner, Richard Hoy, pours an acid tongue on the plague that is the scamming POD publisher or the conniving money-charging agent—in a section of her [their] site called “Whispers and Warnings.” For the newbie, novice, wannabe freelancer, or even for the work at home woman or man creating a website she he wants safe from scummy scammers, www.writersweekly.com is an advisory imperative.
-Robert Woodhead of SelfPromotion.com- Finding www.selfpromotion.com shaved centuries off of not only my design and development but my publishing and promoting the site. With uncluttered pages and cutting-edge constantly updated information, Woodhead who even makes self-effacing jokes about his name walks a web wannabe through every stage of the process, and then provides [shareware] support by helping you submit your site to hundreds of search engines and indexes that you need to have crawl your site for rankings—the latest 2004 must-have for any online business.
Of course, if you were to look at my Favorite Files, at the 900+ categories, subcategories, and links, you would find that many others pulled my smart ass up by the seat of the pants. I name a few of these helpful gurus here, too:

As you might have figured out, I write this not to share any of my own personal technological truths—which are wanting. I write this not to embellish the careers of any affiliates. I don’t have an affiliation with nor do I know the people in the Top Five—who do not need my small time embellishment or exposure. I write this not to show off how hard I worked to create an entity I had no previous knowledge of creating—though how I do like to brag.
I compose this guide to humble myself to the fact that I was flying by the seat of my pants in most cases—except where I was lucky enough to intuit some strategies.
I compose this guide to honor those who put in way more than 300 piddly hours of research, study, and practice to find out what works to make it work even better.
And I compose this guide to help you avoid even 300 not so piddling when you are doing it yourself hours of stitching and tearing out the stitches of the britches of a tailoring project. Smarty pants just had to do it the hard way. May your way be easier.

1 Being placed on hold endlessly. Dont you just love it when you call a company and they place you on hold, leaving you to listen to their latest on-hold, recorded sales pitch, over and over again. Would you think it normal business practice for a retail store clerk to ask you to "wait a minute" while they disappeared into the back of the store for ten, fifteen, thirty minutes or longer People do things over the phone that they would never do in person. Its bad business either way to leave a customer hanging without at least coming back to let the customer know how much longer theyll be holding.
