So sick of overcast days that I went looking on my camera roll for sunny skies. Found some! Rocky Mountain National Park, September, 2019.
Had fun producing a few short videos for the John Wayne Birthplace Museum. These are a great way to catch people's eye, share information, and invite them to visit soon!
We can't wait to see you at the John Wayne Birthplace Museum when we are able to reopen after our closure in Spring of 2020. In the meantime, here's a glimps...
Winterset, let's see your talent!
Although it's really hard to keep track of dates right now (or even days of the week!), last Friday was to have been our first Pride of Winterset Variety Show (formerly known at the Winterset Lions Show).
Since we weren't able to gather in person to highlight all of the amazing talent in our community, we want to do a Virtual Variety Show instead!
The Barrett family has started us off with a lip sync video and now it's your turn! Show us your lip sync, original song, or instrumental solo. Tell a joke. Do a magic trick. Do a cooking demonstration. Or Dance. Or Martial Arts. Or read us a poem.
WHATEVER your talent is, we want to see it! Share your videos here on our FB page with #PrideOfWinterset or contact us through a message or email and we'll upload it for you!
Alan Feirer has an article in today's Des Moines Register. Way to go!
Because of workload, stress, stay-at-home orders, and layoffs, it’s going to take a long time for all of this to be fully resolved.
Huge shout out to DeAnne Negley, our Business Development Specialist (with Winterset Websites and Group Dynamic), who helped me prepare this website as a donation in response to COVID-19, and to Laura Leners for coordinating with Madison County Cares. This is essentially an online version of the directory prepared by MCC, which brings together the human service groups providing services to Madison County residents. Hopefully it can be used to find help where needed.
Madison County Cares is a non-profit organization that brings together all of the Human Service groups providing services to Madison County residents. It was founded in the Mid-1990s as a drug and alcohol prevention effort and has matured to its … Read More
I love our Chamber and can't wait for the day when the Welcome Center doors are open again!
Messages of support, strength, gratitude, and hope from some of Madison County's business and community leaders!
Take a look!
Thank you to our friends at 2/5Studios for creating the project, and to our partners who contributed the messaging! #MadisonCountyStrong #MightyMadisonCounty
"To me a lush carpet of pine needles or spongy grass is more welcome than the most luxurious Persian rug." -- Helen Keller
(p.s. If you want a lush carpet of spongy grass, check out this website for Allendan Sod Company and follow them on Facebook!)
A family-owned company providing high-quality, Iowa-grown Bluegrass and Fescue sod in Iowa and the surrounding states. Give us a call!
No kidding. Thanks, Google!
I just want to say I'm so grateful for the work of the teachers and school staff in Winterset for all they've provided our daughter and others during the closure. I'm sure this is a rough and uncertain day for you, but I know you're already working on whatever creative solution comes next. That is amazing, and I thank you.
Super excited to help with this project. Now you can browse and buy Brooke's beautiful custom jewelry from the comfort of your couch during quarantine and beyond. Watch for more items coming soon! 😍
Take a look at the new on line store!
Recently launched an updated website for St. Timothy's Episcopal Church in West Des Moines. Kudos to them and so many other congregations that have acted quickly to provide digital services and messages through video, radio, podcast, social media, email and more. We are blessed by their creativity and determination to connect!
Whoever you are and wherever you are on your spiritual journey, we invite you to discover the love of God in Christian community with us.
Really thankful to at least have some sunny days to get out and walk or run (or very slow and intermittent jog, in my case). Peace, Love & Lysol everyone! Courtesy of anonymous chalk artist on 8th Ave.
Flat-rate WordPress website maintenance keeps your website visitor-ready with no added time or stress. No surprises or nickel-and-diming for each change -- just fast, friendly updates and a website that's working for you 24/7.
What's included? For a flat monthly fee, you get:
-- Content changes and updates (wording, photos, etc), usually within 24 hours of request, Monday-Friday
-- Monthly updates to WordPress software, themes and plugins
-- Regular backups on a schedule that fits your needs
-- Security checks
-- SEO monitoring reports (see who your competitors are for keywords and phrases)
-- Reminders if you need them (for example... do you need a monthly reminder to write a blog post? To update your upcoming events? To change your photos? To post your newsletter?) Imagine how effective your website could be if you only had maintenance on-call for a flat monthly rate!
The rate per customer varies depending on the size of the site and the scope of the monthly work, but an average rate is $59. Some are more, some are less. I'm located in Iowa and love to serve Iowa clients, but really, you could be anywhere! I have clients in several states. If your website isn't WordPress, call me anyway -- I might still be able to help.
A conversation is the best way to find out if we're a match.

New website for Lowe Chiropractic Clinic just in time to celebrate the end of their 6th anniversary week at their current location on Green Street in Winterset! I'm still grateful that Dr. Lowe very successfully treated my self-inflicted shoulder injury (turns out scraping popcorn texture off the ceiling for a prolonged period of time is not wise....who knew?!)
Lowe Chiropractic in Winterset, Iowa is the area’s leading chiropractor serving Winterset, Adel, West Des Moines and surrounding areas since 1999. We specialize in sports injuries, pediatrics, nutrition, acupuncture and more. New patients are welcome!
3rd scam warning for this week. This happened to one of my website clients (for a lower amount, luckily). Scammer basically goes to the "Contact" or "Staff" page of any website to see who reports to whom in the organization. Then they create a fake email address that looks like it's coming from the boss or higher up, and sends it to the employee, requesting that they do something such as, "Hey I'm really busy right now, but could you please buy a gift card for me in x amount and send it to x location? I'll pay you as soon as I'm back." Employee is eager to please and follows through without realizing it's not really the boss's email address because it's very well disguised, sometimes just one character off. I don't think taking this info off the site is the best solution in most cases. Just remind your people that you would never make such a request and be wary.

"Hello, and please don't hang up. We've tried to reach you numerous times to verify your listing on Google...."
Just hang up. This is also a scam. Google does not call people to verify listings. This article sums it up well.
To protect yourself from being scammed, read this if you’ve been getting phone calls about your Google business listing.
If you get one of these or anything like it, just throw it in the recycle bin. It's a scam. Domains aren't registered or renewed via snail mail with a check. They're banking on the fact that people will be confused and not read the fine print, which does state that it's an offer and not a renewal (even though it says "Renewal Information Enclosed" on the envelope). Feel free to contact me if you're ever in doubt and I'll take a look, no strings attached.
A new website for Family Cancer Network, which exists to help patients and families with collateral damage resulting from diagnosis and treatment of blood and pediatric cancers (things like missing income from taking time off work, travel expenses for treatments, groceries, and more). If you're familiar with the well known Blood, Sweat & Beers 5K in downtown Des Moines each October, this is the organization behind that great event and others! Check it out and follow them on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/familycancernetwork/
