“When I first started working with Gretchen I was on a free platform without a custom domain name. Gretchen was super patient explaining all the various options to me and overcame all my fears about a transfer to a stronger platform. Having Gretchen switch me over to WordPress was like gearing yourself up for that shot at the doctor and nurse telling you ‘it’s already over’. I recommend Gretchen’s services to anyone looking to migrate their site smoothly or set up systems with their blog or email that allow them to reach their audience more effectively.”

“Working with Gretchen has been one of the best decisions I’ve made for my site. Her ninja coding skills have helped me take my blog and my brand to a whole new level. I recommend her to anyone who sees a line of code and starts to hyperventilate.”
