2023 Year in Review

Thank you for spending another year with Cat and Mouse Studio! I hope your holiday season was a perfect mix of joyful and restful. I wanted to share some fun stats and news from this past year of designing websites.


Websites created: 36%
Websites renovated: 60%
Websites migrated: 4%

Lots of brand new websites! It's exciting to be part of someone's decision to finally take their business to the next level with a website. Not too many migrations, but I have a few lined up for later this month.

Page views: 2,267
Average daily visitors: 4.6
New pages: 1

This year I updated my website with Tally Forms and revamped my resources page to better showcase all the free goodies I offer.

Around the World

🇺🇸 U.S. Clients: 80%
🇬🇧 U.K. Clients: 8%
🇦🇺 Australian Clients: 4%
🇮🇹 Italian Clients: 4%
🇦🇪 U.A.E. Clients: 4%

During one project with an Italian client, we used a mix of our limited language knowledge and Google Translate to communicate - and it worked! I'm amazed and blessed that technology allows me work with people all over the world, regardless of timezone or language.

☀️ Sunshine Spotlight ☀️

I have some really amazing news. In February, I designed a website for client, Steve, to help him find a kidney donor. I'm ecstatic to say that he received his new kidney in October and it started functioning in November! 🙌 I'm so grateful I was able to be part of his journey.

2023 Trends

Farm websites: 12%
Teaching websites: 28%

A surprising number of farm websites! It was fun to help farm owners with their websites and let them get back to being outside and caring for their animals. I also worked with a high number of teachers, including a French tutor, a history professor, various coaches, and a violin instructor.

New in 2023

Never done before: Making YouTube videos
I had a lot of fun helping a family member with their YouTube channel (complete with editing, intro/outro, and thumbnails!).
New focus: LinkedIn
Even though I've had LinkedIn for a while, I've only recently started connecting with clients and like-minded business ladies and have really enjoyed it. Feel free to add me!
New skill: Tally Forms
I've become obsessed with Tally Forms (so much so that my husband teases me for it). There's a bit of a learning curve, but once you get it down, the level of functionality in these forms is awesome. I even submitted my own template! 😊

If you've read this entire email, thanks for your dedication and for being part of my email club! It's been a privilege to be able to design websites for so many different people and purposes, and I'm excited to hit the ground running in 2024.
