There’s lots of changes coming to Healthy WebDesign.

The first…my website/blog has moved. It is no longer at You’ll see above that it’s now at

Second, I’m changing the name of my site from Healthy WebDesign to Dawud Miracle @ I’ll be updating the banner in the coming days.

dawudmiracle.jpgThis is a difficult, but for many reaons, a necessary move. The short of it is I’ve far outgrown just being known as a web designer. So while I’ll continue to build websites long into the future, I’m going to begin directly promoting my coaching, consulting and educational services as well. I’ll be sharing much more on these changes in the coming weeks.

For now, I just need to get the word out.

So can you help me? How, you ask?

  1. MOST IMPORTANT: please change my feed link in your feed reader. In time I will phase out the feed attached to
  2. If you’ve bookmarked my site, please update your bookmark to
  3. If I’m in your Technorati Favorites or favorites with any other service, please update your favorite to
  4. Update your blogroll to
  5. Tell anyone you know who’s been to my site that I’ve moved it to

And if you feel so inclined, I would be deeply appreciative if you wrote a short post on your blog about my move. Even though I’m redirecting every URL from, I have effectively lost all my inbound links.

Whatever steps you can take, I deeply thank you for in advance. And thank you for continuing to read and support my blog.

Look for more changes, including design tweaks, coming soon.

    Dawud, congratulations!

    Just in the months that I have known you I can feel your expansion and stepping more fully into what you really offer, which is a lot!

    Here is to Dawud going viral, yet not so viral that we lose you….

    God bless,

    Stuart Baker

    Thanks. I’d love to find myself viral. I’ll just keeping doing what I’m doing, and try to do better, and see what the blogosphere thinks.


    I must say, I really like your new signature. I’m really glad I wrote that post.

    Thanks for help with the update. This was a little scary to take on since I’ve grown at healthywebdesign pretty quickly. But, I see it as necessary for the directions I’m heading. Better now than later.

    So thank you for your ever-present support.

  3. David Airey :: Creative Design :: says

    I’m glad you wrote that post too, Dawud.

    Your move to dmiracle is one I admire. With all you can offer it was apparent that healthy web design was always limiting. Even more so because web design and web development are too independent things, let alone business development.

  4. Dawud Miracle says


    Yeah, I know. Business development, marketing strategy, performance evaluation, services education – and that’s just the start.

    Healthy WebDesign served me well for the past four years. And, it’s time has passed. Now I can focus on the next evolution of my business without being wrapped into a web designer.

    As the book says, “oh the places you will go…”

  5. Diane - Daily Walks says

    Congrats to you, Dawud! There is something very empowering about following one’s passion and doing what comes naturally. (I’m not surprised to see that you’re moving ahead in these areas.) Best of luck to you in your expanding endeavors.

  6. Dawud Miracle says


    So true. And the only heavy lifting I’ve had to do is with redirect 301. Everything else is a bunch of little chores and changes.

    Thanks for updating my feed.


    Great to see you, Diane. Thanks for your well-wishing.

    By the way, anyone who reads this, Diane is an amazing photographer. Visit her photo blog – Daily Walks for a large sampling of her work. And, she happens to be a sweet and gentle soul.

    Dawud you should maybe use the feedburner redirect plugin, or the new solution recently released by WTC that uses curl on your own domain.
    This is a much better feed url

  8. Andy Beard says

    I just use Feedburner for email currently.

    I looked at Feedblitz but didn’t want to spend lots of time trying to make their emails look pretty.

    All they provide is a daily digest so it works well.

    You could also use Aweber, but I am not sure they report stats to Feedburner, but then there are other advantages such as offering bonuses not possible with Feedburner or Feedblitz.

    To my mind the perfect system hasn’t been created yet.

  9. Andy Beard says

    It is a service I would willing pay for if it was perfect, and also covered comment subscriptions, fully can-spam compliant.

    The problem is mindshare

    My blog is one of the only blogs with some attempt at can-spam compliance for their email subscribers to feeds and comments.

    It would be possible to create demand with scare tactics and a marketing budget.

    Maybe one of these days I will bend the ear of Simon Grabowski of Getresponse to do something, but as with many things, it would help if I had a little more influence / mindshare first… hence the blogging.

    I actually have much more profitable business ideas that I still want to fulfil.

    Karin H.,

    Trackbacks not working?? I’ve been playing with TypePad a little bit – just to get more familiar with it. Give me a little time and possibly I can look into it for you.


    Great idea. Didn’t know. I’ll take a look. Thanks.

    Who do you use for emailing feeds? Do they do a digest?

  11. Dawud Miracle says


    Sweet! Thanks for the headsup. I’ve looked at Feedblitz but didn’t want to have to play with it too.

    I’ve been using Aweber for my feed list since I already have an account with them. But I’ve not been happy with their feed service – delays, dupes, and NO reporting to FeedBurner that I’ve found.

    I might have to agree with you on the perfect system not being developed yet. Business idea???

  12. Dawud Miracle says


    Interesting. If something starts up, let me know. I’ll help as I can.


    Thanks so much Char. Lots of changes are coming in the near future. I’m reworking my entire business model to better incorporate all that I do for my clients. So stay tuned…

    Thanks for your help.
