So I've been giving a lot of thought to my website lately. Originally, it worked well, but now that I want to expand the scope of my writing, I need to change things up a bit. I played around with some ideas but none quite fit what I wanted. Then I was tooling around in Microsoft Publisher the other day and realized they had website templates. I've used Publisher for years, mostly for newsletters, but its pretty user friendly. So I went in and took a look. I tried about 5 different designs, narrowed it down to two that I really liked, picked the color scene I wanted and then meshed the two templates into one, taking the best of both. I'm thrilled with the results. The colors are a cranberry red and soft sage green and the design is a good balance between historical and contemporary.
I tried flipping it over into html and it worked fine. Now I just have to figure out how to go about changing the content when I want to, working within html, which I'm not all that familiar with, and what I need to do to get it to go live. I already have a web host and domain name and Gary my web guru sent me instructions on what I needed to do and said he could walk me through it if I had any problems.
So hopefully very soon I will be able to do the change. I can't wait. I love the new look and want it up as soon as possible.
