Man, you even posted the script. Nice!! Once again, thanks for providing this. It's helps a lot.

Jalene said...

Ugh I can't believe I missed this?!?! And I was off today! Do you ever post a schedule of when you'll be doing these live events? Because I checked your blog today and watch the live one with Deyl yesterday, which I was also off of work and could have caught live :( and then when I came back around to the blog later this afternoon it looks like I missed this one also. If there is a schedule or a "Heads-up" listed somewhere that I'm missing cause I feel pretty bummed I missed them both.

But on a lighter side, thanks for posting them so I can watch them! These are defintely valuable sessions I don't want to miss!

Dude, it was great to see you doing this live at the Freedom House!

Tira J said...

DJ, this was very helpful, as last night, I was able to play round with my site some more. Still have questions. Keep doing these when you have time, because it was GREAT!

Chris Ball said...

DJ, Thanks for loading this (and the script), absolutely fantastic. My clients adore their micro-sites (which I link to proof thro' smugmug)and I'm loving making my web presence better everytime I'm online. Sweet! Long live Showit Sites.

David. Can you please record these things for replay by folks who can't make the live event? I'm feeling a bit lost here reading the chat without any of the real information. THANKS
