To all of you who create websites--applause, applause.
I am in the process of having mine built. I know, I thought the same thing as you, eh, how hard can it be? For crying out loud, I built a blog. Ha!
After looking into the finer points of templates, I decided if I were to embark in this route, I needed something professional looking. So, the search began for a webmaster. This brought me completely out of my comfort zone. Plus, I had no clue as to how to begin.
Thankfully, I was given the name of a talented web mistress. She jotted me a quick note with a few general questions, which I replied to with answers that were even more vague. Yesterday, I got the first glimpse of what she concocted. Impressed doesn't begin to describe it.
We are fine tuning the details but rest assured, this is much better than anything I could have attempted. I don't know how she did it, but she is able to capture the essence of my writing style. Having looked at her portfolio, this is her strength. Whether contemporary or historical, her creations reflect the author splendidly.
I'll let you know when it is finished.
