Our baby is 8 this year and it’s really hard to believe. Owning our own business has been a roller coaster ride–exciting, terrifying, and sometimes hurl-inducing–but we wouldn’t trade it for anything. I know many of you know what we’re talking about.
We want to sincerely thank you. Your support, cheerleading, love, dedication, and loyalty drives us to work harder and inspires us to do and be better. We are so happy to know you and have the opportunity to work with you. Thank you!
Love–Jessy + Lisa
The new version of WordPress has been released! So, what’s new in WordPress 3.8?
Yes, you can do these upgrades yourself, but a word of caution: As with any upgrade, there is a possibility that the new software could conflict with your existing site. So make sure you ALWAYS backup your website and know how to restore it if something goes wrong. ALWAYS (really, I mean it)
You have other, more important things to work on so let me introduce our Monthly Maintenance Plans. Here’s what you get:
Basic Plan: Just the Updates Please
Plus Plan: Updates plus 1/2 hour of website edits or training – nice!
Premium Plan: Updates plus 1 hour of website edits or training – what a deal!

Now that the new year is upon us, it is time to reflect on the past year. How successful was your marketing? Did you get the money that you invested in marketing back in new business? What areas can you improve? What worked and what didn’t? What needs attention? Where are you missing opportunities?
To help you answer these questions, we created a Marketing Audit. Its purpose is to help you identify what marketing areas you might be missing or need to improve. Download our Marketing Audit below and use your answers to identify and prioritize areas to work on next year.
Happy Holidays! We will be closed from December 23rd to January 1st for the holidays. We’ll be back in the office on January 2nd to answer emails and phone calls. Have a wonderful holiday and we’ll see you next year!

Sometimes I find it so hard to be productive when it is gorgeous outside – which presents a bit of a problem when you live in a place with arguably the best weather in the US. While I was watching surfing videos, I mean, working, Inc. Magazine wisely sent this article to my inbox: 10 Ways to Be Productive in the Summer. Here are the two that stood out for me:
Conduct your personal annual review – instead of reviewing your past year, readjusting goals and rearranging your priorities at the end of the year, do it now. Why make it harder by trying to review the past year when you’re already exhausted from the busy holiday schedule. Brilliant!
Do something “it’s never the right time for” – we all have something that we’d love to start or change for our business but who has the time, right? You do, right now!
For more details on these and their other ways to be productive, read the article here.
A quick reminder that we’ll be closed this Thursday 7/4 and Friday 7/5 to celebrate Independence Day! Happy Fourth!
Hello! We will be closed on Monday 5/27 for Memorial Day. We hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday!
Belladia is seven today!! It’s amazing how fast the time goes. Happy Birthday to our sassy, spunky, determined, creative, challenging-but-totally-worth-

Over the past two and a half years, we’ve happily donated our services to one of the most important LGBT organizations there is, PFLAG (Parents, Families, & Friends of Lesbians and Gays) San Diego. This month, they have written an article about us in their monthly newsletter! Click here to read the newsletter
PFLAG was created by parents, families and friends to gain understanding and support of gay loved ones. PFLAG offers a wonderful global opportunity for families, friends, and gay people (gay men, lesbians, transgendered and bisexuals) to learn and grow together. If you know anyone who is struggling or looking for support, this is the place to send them.
Thank you PFLAG San Diego!
