    CK is one of the best developers I have worked with to date. And I have had the pleasure of working with a fair few. He was incredible efficient, talked me through exactly what was happening at each stage and has an extensive knowledge of WordPress. He even went above and beyond to fix a server issue that was not in the original brief. Couldn't recommend enough!

    Colin, is a great developer, artist and professional. He takes great pride in doing a great work. I have no criticism about anything. Pay his asking price because he under promises and over delivers. The best way I can endorse him is to give him more work. I am giving him two more projects. Colin is a rock star! And he is pleasant and makes me smile every day, he responds to every question and teaches me something new every day. We seem to collaborate brilliantly! I recommend - Hire him. Best attributes: technical expertise, creative, excellent communicator, on time and on budget best quality.

    CK fixed a weird CSS page formatting issue on a very complex site and gave some good advice about what he saw happening on the site.

    He went in, assessed the situation and knew exactly what to do and got it done!

    One of the Best
    CK is everything you want from a Wordpresser/Web Developer. He is responsive, considerate, and knows how to get the job done. He is an expert in his field and willing to work with you to make your vision a reality. Bottom line -- hire CK. You don't need to look any further.

    The best
    CK has been a completely invaluable resource. He has helped me tremendously on two different projects. When I have had a question about his code or plugin, he has been quick to respond. When I've had suggestions, he's listened. I cannot recommend him enough.

    Just can't stop staring and this great result
    We were working on a creation and an implementation of a specific plugin: Custom About Author Fork at my site. The work was well structured and planned from the beginning, everything was transparent and fair. He was in details answering for each of my questions and requests, even despite my lack of a knowledge. In spite of the time lag, due to a living in a different Times Zones, the job was going pretty straightforwardly. Everything ended in a success, and now I just have to stop staring at this great result.

    I recommend CK for your website needs!
    CK built my website about five years ago and he has maintained it ever since. He is easy to work with and reasonably priced. I am not very technologically advanced so I am thankful to have someone that makes it so easy for me!

    Several important and effective improvements for our WordPress site
    CK performed a number of improvements for our WordPress blog. This included site design and a number of commenting features that required custom coding. He also found security vulnerabilities that we didn't know about and fixed those two. Importantly, everything he did continues to work after he left our project for greener pastures. He was proactive, willing to offer guidance with prioritizing features and came up with features that our commenters continue to wonder how they once did without. I'd be very happy to work with him again on another project.

    If You Haven't Hired CK MacLeod Yet, You Don't Know How Much You Need Him
    Our experience with CK MacLeod was nothing short of outstanding. Our WordPress site is one that juggles dozens of writers and hundreds of commenters, and to be honest none of us who ran it had any idea what was possible until CK showed us. In a short period of time, he made the site infinitely more professional looking, easier to use for readers, and just plain *better*. And that wasn't just our opinion -- the site's visitors were pretty vocal about loving everything CK did. True story: Initially when CK would come to me with an idea, I would think, "that sounds like an interesting bell or whistle, but I don't think it would make a difference." In short time, however, I gave him the authority to make changes without my approval, because everything he did turned out to by bloody amazing. If you have a WordPress project or need someone to do regular maintenance, I cannot recommend CK MacLeod enough.

    Excellent WordPress services!
    C.K. was very accommodating, patiently and thoroughly answering ALL of my many questions. He was generous with his time, rounding DOWN rather than UP, as many freelancers would. He has continued to be supportive, answering quick questions at no charge. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a good job well done.

    Top notch
    CK is a pleasure to work with. He knows what he's doing, explains my options well, and does the work quickly, effectively, and reasonably. Highly recommend.


What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
My hourly rate ($50) serves as a baseline or reference point, not as a literal hourly wage. Both my clients and I almost always prefer to structure a project or contract around achievement of objectives and services rendered in a timely manner, not the passage of time "on the clock."
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
The client and I will work out the terms of a work contract in appropriate detail, with agreement on both sides signified via completed initial Paypal transaction. On any major project, the contract will be built around specific waypoints where clients can choose either to continue with the project or to take it over themselves or to expand on its terms.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I've been at this in on way or another since there was a this to be at. It was a natural evolution from earlier work and experience in publishing, small business, and the arts. Running my own e-store and blog led me to focus on coding.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Most of my customers are individuals or small businesses, including non-profits: People who appreciate a personal touch.
