Ran across this one somewhere late last night, and I quite like it - it's a bit "old world" yet conveys a totality, I think: "web craftsman".
I think I'll adopt it posthaste....
Around here, "web mistress" always gets you raised eyebrows....
Nevertheless, the folk at Microsoft seem to be very religious [microsoft.com].
Well, since this is your thread, why not do something like WordGame?
Everyone adds their version and only YOU get to delete the ones you don't want? Might get some good ideas that are acceptable.
Others can speak their piece and you can only delete. <- Almost poetic, ain't it?
Then paste back in the ones you like.
Jusssst a thought. :)
But please, whatever you do, don't call me a web designer. Typical conversation at a party:
q: what do you do?
a: I do web stuff [trying to keep it non-technical]
q: oh, you mean you're a web designer?
a: NO, I'm not a web designer. A designer is someone who designs the surface of the site. I make it run.
So I'd say:
I make it run == webmaster, or whatever term you prefer instead;
I'm opting for Web Wizard for my new cards I think. Nicely gender neutral (as pointed out earlier), and while "netfashionist" is also gn, it comes across to me as female and somehow "precious". Perhaps because I started life as an interior designer? Among other things....
Then those who run ESL sites would be Webguists and those who run Cartoon sites might be called Webtoonists.
If you're a heavy Hemi fan you'd then be a WebisphericalChamberist, or, on the other hand, if you ran a Nutritional site, you'd be a Webasnackist.
"Look that up in your Funk and Wagnall's!" Long time quote from SNL.
If you ran a Goth site you could call yourself a Nut. Sometimes you feel that way, sometimes you don't, you know.
If you ran a Heavy Metal Band site, you might then wish to call yourself a WebHuhWhatchusayist
Individual results may vary. Plus tax and F.I.C.A., mounting and balance extra. Do not try this at home....
