VisionBurst Launches Web Site for Nationally Syndicated Columnist

Hollywood, FL, December 18, 2002: Hollywood-based web and graphic design firm VisionBurst, Inc., (www.visionburst.com) has launched LightingTheFuse.com, a web site created for Michael S. Miller, author of Lighting The Fuse, a weekly column that appears in the South Florida Business Journal and over 40 other papers nationwide. Michael is also the Editor of the Toledo City Paper, a weekly alternative newspaper that covers news and entertainment in northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan.

The site provides an interface which enables Miller to upload his own articles, create categories for each, and to edit and delete text, all without any web design knowledge or experience, and without needing to pay a professional every time changes are needed.

A "non-techie", Miller was at first hesitant to embark on a project that would require him to maintain his own site.

"I have never worked on a Web site before," comments Miller, "but VisionBurst¹s design and implementation have converted me into believing I¹ve made a mistake by waiting this long to open a site. The administrative pages are simple and
trouble-free, and graphics uploads are quick and easy."

As for the benefits, they are clear to Miller. "[The site] allows me to reach readers all over the world. I sell more books and garner more feedback through the site than through any individual newspaper."

And his readers agree. One reader wrote to Michael, "Nice job with the site. Very easy to navigate and glad to see you have a repository for the legions of fans." Another fan commented, "Love it. Professional look. Easy to navigate." Still another wrote, "I'm Impressed! Great Site with lots of appeal!"
