What do you do in Iceland when life is easy and daylight is short?
Don’t do nothing they say.
Well I can’t do nothing. Thats just impossible for me. I have to keep busy. Sometimes I think I am the busiest person in Iceland. That tells me life is as good as it gets.
In my field evolving around international or local photography workshops, seminars, lectures, consultation or just plain assignments in the digital imaging field, there is very little happening in December and January.
But then I get so busy, studying software, digital image techniques, image processing and of course on top of that making a NEW WEBSITE for FocusOnNature in Iceland. I will of course do it myself. What could be easier. WordPress looks great. Order books and start reading them and information on the web about it. MailChimp looks fantastic for posting. Study that. So I basically jump flat bellied into the deep end of the pool. At the bottom of the deep end of the pool I realize this is not as easy as I thought. Oh no. I need help, NOW.
Okay. I make a list of 20 people or services that look like being able to help me from drowning in making a new website. I sleep on it. I study the 20 options. I get some feeling. I sleep more on it. I look at the options again. I have the same feeling. Out of the list of 20 web development services there is this ONE sticking out. XLD Studios – Erik Bernskiold. He just stands out from the 19 other choices I listed. This guy is getting to me. Something about his professional presence on the web.
My choice of service and contract with Erik Bernskiold – XLD Studios is once again a proof of being positive makes good things happen. I could not imagine how professional Erik worked and how great our co-operation could be making the new FocusOnNature in Iceland website. Erik, thanks for pulling me out of the pool. It was a great enjoyable swim.
Just think about it, when you see the web developing and you like what you see, you start thinking how will you maintain it. Should I know how to do this or that. Oh no. Next email form Erik includes videos how to teach you to do this and do that. Just short videos and you can watch them anytime to refresh on how to do this or do that before it gets through your thick skull.
Of course I pay Erik for his work. We made a contract and thats all fine. But I would not have dream about that I would be working on the professional level Erik does and how we got things done so brilliantly well from start to launching the website on new servers in the US, with all links to my previous website routed perfectly.
