    Hello, I enjoy your email newsletters very much. I often get good information.

    I wonder though, why does the WordPress community so often undermine WordPress web designers?

    Is it to make money on mass selling of themes?

    To tell people, over and over, how easy it is for anyone to use WordPress to make their dream website. That YOU CAN DO IT. I think is a disservice to actual WordPress web designers. It also is setting up most people for failure, ultimately undermining WordPress and the web designers who work with it.

    It takes a lot of time and patience and some technical know-how to make a website. Any website with any program.

    I understand this is the natural hyperbole of the internet. Adobe has hyped me that “You can make a website with Photoshop.” While that is probably true, I have never heard of anyone actually doing it.

    To tell people how you can make a website if you only use WordPress makes me, who has been doing websites for 14 years, look lame for using it. Like I am an amateur doing what anyone can do.

    While I understand your point. I wonder if you are aware of what you are doing to a small web designer, out in the hinterland, dealing with people who have small amounts of information about it.

    There’s a lot to making websites. It is a job.

    Thanks, Denise

    No, no. It was not an insult. There is a blind spot, and web designers, plus design firms, consultants, and people who are tech enough to figure out an online interface are there. All mixed up.

    I see it clearly, mostly, some of the basic, different sections of creating an online presence.

    It will be interesting to see how it pans out.

    No offense taken.
