Who’s that person behind the curtain?

Hello there! My name is Nicolette Tallmadge and I’m the founder, blogger, and chief nerd here at The Crafted Webmaster. I created my first web site waaay back in 1996 after learning HTML for fun in a computing magazine. I used that experience to get a job designing web sites for a living. But I’ve been designing jewelry for even longer than that and for a time I was juggling own handmade jewelry design business while working as a freelance web designer.

I started this website in 2006 after spending a lot of time on the road selling my works at art fairs and craft shows. While traveling was fun, I wanted to settle down and focus more promoting my business online. During my time on the road at various shows and events, I realized that there wasn’t a whole lot of information and help for artists wanting to build their businesses online. I started The Crafted Webmaster as a resource to help fellow artists build and promote their own websites.

Building a web presence has gotten much easier since 1996…but it’s by no means less complicated. Now it’s less about building the actual presence and more having that presence stand out from the crowd. And there always something new right around the corner….a new social network, a new tool, a new technique. My goal is to break down the complex and complicated and help my fellow creatives navigate their own path to success…whether that success is making a first sale, starting a new blog, maintaining a creative side hustle, or building a new creative empire.
