Years ago I did ADA compliance for a website. It was an enormous pain—not worth it! However ... I have recently made my own website ADA compliant, and it went a lot better this time—totally worth it!
You'll notice the little wheel chair icon to the bottom right of the screen. If you click on it, there are loads and loads of customization options. You can manipulate the site to your own viewing pleasure. The best part, though, are the profiles up top. Whether a client is prone to seizure or getting distracted, has trouble seeing or reading, can't use a mouse or even see at all, this website should be accessible to them.

I recently had the opportunity to speak with the University of Georgia's Small Business Development Center's Grow Smart program. I was given the topic of "Websites, SEO and Online Marketing." Then I was told I’d only have ten minutes. So, I decided to give the top ten things you should know about those things spending one minute talking about each of them. Here is the content and an info-graphic of that presentation (after I wasted the first 22 seconds explaining what I was about to say).
I've spent the last four month reading Les Misérables by Victor Hugo. It's a massive novel whose chapters are only outnumbered by its acclaims. If you know (at least the mainstream) story line, you know that it is great story—that is not to be taken for granted, here. However, the best part about the book is not the story. Hugo goes into extreme detail about a very minor character—very minor. It can be frustrating at first, but when you finally get to this character's one significant act the background knowledge adds so much weight that it almost brings tears to your eyes. However, it is not Hugo's command of detail that makes this book so great either.
