For many, many months I have been intending to create a website. Nothing fancy, you understand, just an additional promotional tool to share my creations with the world, and maybe sell a couple of them to discerning purveyors of hand-crafted uniquery (is that a word, even?).
So off I go, trawling the depths of the internet, trying to find a cheap (free?) website builder that I can actually understand. Now I'm not saying: "love me, love me, I'm thick", but - why the flaming heck is this so difficult? Am I really that dense? I thought I was fairly computer savvy but clearly not!
My first attempt met with abject failure. It isn't often I'm reduced to a gibbering wreck by a piece of software, but this was one of those times. I don't usually give up without a fight, but resistance was futile. I simply could not get my brain wrapped round what I needed to do to get what I wanted. Time to stomp off in a huff, muttering ladylike expletives, vowing never to try doing anything remotely 21st century again.
Until I found weebly.com.
Oh, Weebly, I love you. You have restored my mood to that of calm, capable, unflappable, swift of finger and appraising of eye. I am inserting images, creating pages, typing copy and building a website worthy of a Crafty Little Owl. Deep sigh of contentment.
I shall let you know when 'Crafty Little Owls - The Website' goes live.
