Technology has never been my strong suit, so when the publishing company suggested I build a website my first thought was to hire someone. However, I figured I should at least try before giving up. So, I rolled up my sleeves and chopped that shit up.
Google became my best friend and I spent at least 48-hours searching for the right platform. I consulted with friends who had knowledge in the space and,...here we are.
I am not going to lie, the process of building a website sucks! The widgets, plug-ins, themes aren't as easy to maneuver as suggested they might be. Error after error and numerous necessary restarts can really chip away at what little enthusiasm one might have started with for a project like this.
But, alas, my site is up and I have a functional beginning. As I get closer to publishing date, I will be adding ordering procedures, et al, to the site. In the meantime, I would love to hear your comments and thoughts re what I have so far. What is missing that you think I should have? What should be removed immediately because it sucks? What would you do differently, if anything? --DP
