The last time I checked this thread there were hardly any replies. I forgot about it, glad I checked back in. Sorry for all the typos up top! YIKES.
Anyway, after I thought about it, my thoughts were along the line of what you posted here. It is a very nice site, with lots and lots of pictures that had to be tagged, described and cropped, video uploaded etc...
The conclusion I came to: was that for the value her business(she-the writer) will get out of it, $300 is a small expense for business promotion.
Also, when I tried to explain to her how to do little things, she is not interested and has said "I just don't want to do it." Guess who's been asked to make changes to it now?
Thanks for the discussion.
