If a customer can't see your site on their phone,                                                                  how will they find you?

At Blogsite Studio, I design websites to be mobile friendly. That way, every time a potential customer navigates to my client’s site on a smart phone, the information is presented as crisply and clearly as it would on a desktop computer.

What my clients say

Mari designed a beautiful site that graphically represents the travel experience. She listened closely and found the solutions we needed to present the information the way we wanted it. Additionally, thanks to Mari’s thorough training skills, our members are now able to design and create their own profile pages as well as post to their heart’s content. I would whole-heartedly recommend Mari for both designing sites as well as training users on WordPress.

"Mari Kane did an excellent job at helping me get my website up and online. She is very adept with Word Press and gave me numerous options while creating the site. Once we knew what direction we were taking she offered several inventive ideas. Mari is a good problem solver and came up with quick and clever expedients. I’d definitely recommend her services."

All Things Internet Donald Trump Would Make Disappear in 2016
To properly rant about what I’m hating on the Internet, I’m going to channel the world’s favorite blowhard, Donald Trump. That guy really tells it like it is without filter or fallback, making him a perfect voice for my rant.
