So, I just rebuilt my whole website in a new online program called Weebly. So far, I can't say enough good things about it! It was so SUPER easy to use--I don't think building a website from scratch can get any easier. I've tried many different platforms, and as a person who knows probably the equivalent of a kindergartener when it comes to website creation, I probably only spent about 8 hours building it. It's pretty much still in a pretty "barebones" state, as I don't have my banner up yet, but besides that its pretty much finished. I generally like my website to be on the simpler side to let the artwork take center stage.
It is beyond easy to update and add new portfolio pieces, pages, or other elements and that is so important to someone as HTML-impaired as I am.
For the past five years or so, I've used Blogger as my blogging platform and it works great, but I want to try Weebly's blogging service so that my blog and website can be seamlessly integrated. So far, I can't import my old Blogger archives into Weebly, which is a drawback, but maybe soon enough Weebly will come up with a patch for that.
Let's see how this experiment goes!
Over and out!
