Web Technology Specialist

“Rebecca is a creative, detail oriented, and talented Web Technology Specialist. I have hired her on several occasions to perform a variety of website-related tasks such as creating headers and taking a simple template and giving it a creative punch. In one occasion, she got my site up and running after I tried performing my own website fix and crashed it. I would definitely hire her over and over again for all my website related needs.”

Folio 2 – Writing the Short Story

“This is one of the most original, well-crafted submissions I’ve received this year. You are a brave experimenter of form in narrative, and you make an equal effort in plot and character development. I enjoyed both stories, and was happy with how you’ve made the characters speak in their own voices. Now that you’ve proven to yourself that you can manage innovative narrative structures, I encourage you to also consider taking on slightly more challenging story lines/themes/issues etc. I’d say you’re more than capable of meeting that task. You’re pretty inspiring! All the best.”

I.T. Tutor and Consultant

“Rebecca is a highly motivated and knowledgeable IT consultant. I first hired Rebecca to tutor me in website building and affiliate marketing in 2006. Since then she has been a wealth of knowledge in all things IT and I feel like I have learned a great deal thanks to Rebecca’s confident and approachable mentoring and tutorials. When I purchased an online business in 2009, Rebecca provided all of the Web design, maintenance, and support services to keep the business running smoothly. She also helped me develop greater confidence in my social media campaigns and the promotion of my products. I continue to use Rebecca as my IT consultant and regularly call on her services. I heartily recommend her to anyone that needs her expertise with computers, the internet, and the Web”

I’ve known Rebecca for years — including many late nights in front of the computer working on a variety of projects — and she’s always been a source of inspiration.”

Blog Redesign and Theme Customization

“Rebecca Laffar-Smith takes professionalism to a whole new level. I’m always amazed at how professional – yet friendly – her e-mails are. And she does a fabulous job of letting me know what will work and what won’t – without making me feel dumb or inadequate.

“Rebecca recently transformed my blog: Healing With Juices. I enjoyed the process thoroughly. It wasn’t stressful at all, and I knew I was in very good hands. I’m so pleased with my blog design and have received countless compliments on Rebecca’s work! Readers aren’t the only ones who have taken notice to how nice of a job Rebecca did with my blog makeover – sponsoring companies are contacting me, letting me know how pleased they are with the new professional look.

“And the icing on the cake? My blog subscriptions have literally doubled since the new design went live! The amount of readership that took two years to accumulate has repeated itself almost overnight! Coincidence? Maybe, but I have a strong feeling credit goes to Rebecca Laffar-Smith.

“I can’t thank you enough, Rebecca!”

A Poem To Say Goodbye

“Oh I LOVE,LOVE, love this! There are times when I’m crafty with rhyming connections and I was struggling to put together the kids’ ideas. This however has personality of Diana in it along with the the passionate thank you from this experience.

“Oh how can I thank you. We were willing to abandon our original work if we could gather help. The kids’ ideas must have proven to be a good starting ground for you. I will share this with the kids after we return from Spring Break. Oh, thank you and thank you PLURK.”

“I guest blogged for Rebecca once, and was delighted at what a positive experience it was. Not only was she very clear in what she hoped to see from the blog post, but her details (word count, date posted, etc.) was better than some of the more “stressful” gigs I’ve worked for in the past! I would love to work with her again, and am looking forward to the next opportunity to do so!”

WordPress TroubleShooter

“Rebecca is a powerhouse when it comes to WordPress implementation. She pointed out a website issue I had and was able to troubleshoot and correct the problem immediately. She worked diligently to help me get my website back up and running properly. There are two things I especially liked about working with Rebecca: (1) She offered her advice and suggestions freely, leaving me options to make a decision one way or the other. (2) She answered my questions with great ease and respect. Even though I didn’t know what she was talking about, she definitely knew her stuff when it came to fixing my WordPress database and website issues. Overall, Rebecca is a friendly and warm person who is exactly the kind of person you need in your corner to keep your websites running smoothly. She has integrity and respectability and I highly recommend her!”

Web Design Critique

“Rebecca Laffar-Smith is an amazingly talented freelance writer, blogger, editor and web designer. I’ve been in awe of her creative writing and teaching abilities since I first “met” her via the cyber highway. A regular reader of her blog, craftingfiction.com, I have enjoyed her inspiring, captivating words but was still astounded when she contacted me after viewing my freshly re-designed website. With her sharp eye for details, she pointed out a couple of things that needed clarification. I quickly made those changes and thanked her for her friendly, professional expertise. I’m definitely keeping her in mind for future editing needs!”

Blog Redesign and Theme Customization

“Rebecca Laffar-Smith completed the design for Future-Tarot.com using WordPress 2.0. Miss Michele is not very tech-savvy when it comes to Web 2.0, so she needed something easy-to-update but professional-looking. Rebecca Laffar-Smith delivered!

Miss Michele commented, ‘I think Rebecca Laffar-Smith is the true psychic! She knew what I wanted the site to look like before I did! When I saw it, I knew it was perfect: the color scheme, the navigation, the logo; Future-Tarot.com will carry our new tarot business well into the future.’

She continued, ‘It’s a far cry from my old site, which I’m embarrassed to show anyone now. (But I will, as a before-and-after example.) If your site looks something like my old site did, Rebecca can help!

‘Best of all, Rebecca was amazingly easy to work with; prompt, professional and patient. For small business owners with a thousand things on their mind, these traits are just as important as talent when working with a Web designer.’
