Websites and other wonders

Websites and other wonders

One of the issues that has come up in publishing is the need for marketing, which includes having a website. And operating a website requires learning how to create the pages and posts as well as adding security and forms. It may look easy from the outside, but it is no piece of cake, especially for those of us not tech oriented. (I don’t even have a cell phone.)

And the options! A gazillion plugins (which can slow the site loading if you have too many) and templates, not to mention images and links!

Making multiple pages came about as a means to (I hope) make navigation easier for visitors while also showing what I have to offer.

And the overall look is a combination of the base template for the site as a whole, images and colours I chose to use, and the photos and fonts available through the site-builder software.

To say it took days to put it all together does not begin to describe the process. And all this while also trying to write and edit and publish. An author’s work is never done.

Have you built a website? Are you tech-savvy?

  1. I have created my own facebook page, which is quite easy, and am at the beginning level of being tech savvy. I have learned how to create and edit and add photos to a brochure online, which is an accomplishment.

    1. Congratulations. Indeed it is an accomplishment. For those of us not into computer code and tech manipulation, all of this can be a struggle – even the more user-friendly social sites!
