    Web site Redesign

    I definitely like the fresh colours and clean style of the site, however as fisicx points out, it took me a while to learn what you do, and I stuck around to find out so that I could participate in this thread. Maybe change `Elevate Your Success With Ossisto Virtual Assistant' to `Elevate Your Success With Ossisto Virtual Assistance'. To me assistance seems more human-like as opposed to relying on a software assistant or something to assist you. The style is nice and unique I think.

    Colours & Layout

    http://www.responsinator.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fyourboothskent.co.uk%2F I'm no good at design, so I'm probably a hypocrite for saying this, but the only thing I don't like about your site is the logo. (I like the idea of using fiverr.com for very quick and reasonably priced work to fix things which other people can do better.) Everything else can be tidied up as per fisicx and other members' recommendations. Therefore, good job. Yes, it looks like fun, too. 👍

    Microsoft won an Emmy (press F3 and search for Microsoft) this week for their Standardization of HTML5 work (with Edge), along with Google and a few other companies. Source

    Quickly Edit Videos for YouTube?

    I would search on YouTube for the latest info. Another thought. For people who want to pay a tiny amount for any type of work from someone more experienced, you can always use fiverr.com.
  5. Welcome to the club! The coding behind the scenes on my sites looks like a modified car out of Mad Max.

    What service to offer for free that's of value?

    You could offer constructive criticism about people's sites. Making an offer via a video might help to come across more honest and leave less doubt in people's minds, if you care about that sort of thing.

    HTML Entities: Do you use a name or number?

    Thanks fisicx and BlueDreamer. I have bookmarked both of those resources. 👍

    HTML Entities: Do you use a name or number?

    Thank you, gentlemen. 👍 I will continue to use the name.
  9. I'm just curious if you personally use a name or a number for HTML entities. (W3Schools) Eg. For an ampersand (&) do you usually use & or & ?

    How to fix sitemap issues?

    If a first post containing a website link and a sitemap link isn't spam, I don't know what is.

    Browsers

    I decided to stick with Edge a couple of years or so ago, and it's still my main browser. I used to install plenty of browsers for testing but just have a few now, including Chrome. It seems that 79.5% of my site visitors would disagree with me though, as they appear to use Chrome, too.

    Perhaps an odd question

    `You get used to it. I don't even see the code. All I see is blonde, brunette, redhead..'

    Tricky situation: what would you do?

    That's a good idea. If that was not so ideal, maybe they could demonstrate it on Skype using screen share (if it was a Windows or Mac type project) or by holding a device up to the camera. You could also record the Skype session in case it helps you down the line from a legal standpoint.
  14. Thanks. I lost interest in the site/content, and always kept it in case I needed an online home which I could adapt or change at any time, instead of just throwing it all away. Plus, at the age of 50 I might need to demonstrate that I have a little technical prowess (not design skill) in the future.. In the coming years, I expect to move back to the UK to take care of my parents. I'll need to look for work, and regardless of field or type of job, I thought I would keep the site to show an interest in online life and such. I appreciate you bothering to comment. Cheers. 👍
  15. My site got rejected for AdSense. I guess it was a good enough hobby while it lasted.
