Introduction
I would like to introduce a new website I created for my home-based business, "Blazon Promotions." Owning a business is new to me and needed an inexpensive way to promote my services as well as my products.

Purpose
The Blazon Promotions website http://blazonpromotions.homestead.com was created to reach a wider customer base and make our services available to them at their convenience. The site will hopefully attract new clientele by providing a brief overview of the services, samples of artwork and screen printing, along with promotional items we provide.

Audience
This site targets small business owners, civic groups, charities, and school organizations. It is very user-friendly and can be navigated easily by people of all ages and backgrounds.

Developing the Site:
Developing the Blazon Promotions website was not easy and very stressful at times. Because I had no idea how to begin a website, I signed up for a two day course at Del Mar College for extra help. Unfortunately, I had to pay for the class, but I was able to get guidance so I could begin the construction of my site. This class directed me to a website template that allowed me to include pictures, topics, and change backgrounds.

Website Challenges:
Like mentioned earlier, I used a site template to build my webpage. However, I was limited as to the number of pictures I could include as well as the words. I did not feel I was given enough options to utilize some of Jakob Nielson's suggestions. Because the site consist of only five pages, the navigation is extremely easy.

Overall Reflection:
I am pretty satisfied with my overall work on completing this project. Though the class is completed online, I had to make sure I structured my time accordingly and kept up with all assignments. If I had more time and more knowledge, I'm sure I could create a site that was more appealing to myself as well as my clients.
