The launching of a new site is always exciting. The last few months I have been deeply involved in the world of Expression Engine and probate law. Just last week I launched Statewide Probate, a law firm from my home town of Pensacola, Florida.
This was my first client site in EE and it went fairly smoothly. The site doesn’t have too many advanced features but being able to have multiple layouts with static and dynamic content was far easier than other systems I have worked with like Wordpress or Joomla.
Statewide mainly focuses on probate administration and real estate & property probate as well as offering numerous articles about the questions that go along with probate law. The staff at Statewide Probate was extremely hands on throughout the process and even took on the role of banner images.

After being tempted by ExpressionEngine for the last few weeks I’ve decided to move this blog onto it. I’ve been a Wordpress user since 2006 and have loved a lot about it. You can read my full explanation of switching from Wordpress to ExpressionEngine over on my Alibi blog.
I’ve had this blog, drewstauffer.com and my business site Alibi Productions for a long time. While I was getting this blog ready to be on EE I started to think that maybe having the two blogs wasn’t the best method. I basically write about the same things, except maybe this blog would have a few more personal posts…like cooking and vacation stuff. Obviously having the two blogs has hurt my posting schedule as well.

Redesigning a corporate website can be a huge task. Depending on the company, you can get a lot of cooks in the kitchen which can easily slow down the process.
I have worked at Jackson-Dawson (now Jackson Marketing Group) for the past two years and the redesign process has almost been going on the entire time. We were never in a huge hurry and really wanted to concentrate on “getting it right”, instead of just “get it done”.

I knew I hadn’t posted in a little while, but I didn’t think the last time was July. A lot has been going on since then. Most importantly I got married. You can see some pictures if you like.
In the last few weeks I have got more involved with video blogging. I posted a video blogging 101 over at alibi.
Alibi launched Three River Stone on Dec. 7. Three River Stone is a great local company here in Greenville, SC and their natural rock veneer/thin stone products are easy to use, beautiful and makes any home look amazing.

It’s been super busy lately with freelance and the corporate job, but I’ve managed to get out a new Wordpress theme. Elements of SEO was launched a few weeks ago and it has received some really nice traffic and downloads.
Elements of SEO is a really clean, minimalistic design with a main focus on content and typography. Crafted for the true blogger, this theme will not let you down when it comes to your rankings or listings either.
