About the Team:

Diane Whiddon, Owner, Geek Goddess and lover of all things marketing

Diane WhiddonDiane is our head guru, fearless leader and glitter-based visionary.  She has a knack for seeing possibilities in everything and considers herself blessed to be able to work on the internet, the coolest place on earth.

She got her start designing websites for writers (which is why you’ll see a lot of them hanging around here) and why she’ll occasionally talk about writing and the publishing industry on the blog, along with marketing for small businesses and the importance of doing what you love. She also feels fancy writing about herself in the third person.

Walter Brown, Senior Tech & WordPress Sorcerer


I was born and raised in Orlando, FL, but managed to escape to the foothills of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado bringing along a love of all things tech, music, and sports.

Starting with Windows95, I began working with internet technologies, and haven’t stopped since. HTML, CSS, PHP, SQL, and a slew of other acronyms, are a part of my everyday toolkit.

A life-long tech enthusiast, I enjoy finding the best way to help others get their message, products, or ideas online. And, I look forward to working with you to create some online goodness!
