Small business? You bet: I’m Steve Hoad and I have run a number of businesses including an advertiseing agency in past years. Right now, I’m working with my family on Emma’s Family Farm and I find myself scrambling to deep up with sales, traditional and web marketing and then, having any time for fun!
I have experience as a writer, copywriter, and ad targetting. I have also worked in Radio and as a news and feature writer for a web site called AbilityMaine. I love networking face to face and find that social media can come very close to it but, without the travel.
For the Farm,I manage listings on various web sites, and example of those can be found at:
There are almost 100 of these sites where listings can be placed for local farms but we try to put generic listings on most of them with a select few that are regularly updated.
Then, I try to do a little blogging, all my guilty feelings about that have been poured out in the glog forum:
I manage our Twitter account (and have some fun mixing up the content there):
and my daughter Rose manages our Facebook presence at:
All of this plus years of experience on the web makes me well aware every day that many sites and platforms on the internet, and now, smartphones, are inaccessible to many people with disabilities.
I am a person who is blind, and navigation through some of the sites out there is impossible. I use a text to speech screen reader and would enjoy talking with anyone about accessibility and issues surrounding how to improve it. I also am happy to share what I know about it and maybe we can work together
