building a web site

July 8, 2009

I’ve just spent the past 24 hours working on my web site ( Amazingly, most of it has gone very smoothly, even if not quite as planned.

First challenge was to find a new hosting service for my domain. My previous host did not provide all the tools that the newer hosting services seem to provide, and wanted to charge me a lot of money for scanning my incoming emails for spam. Time to move!

My major concern was not transferring the web site content, as I planned to revise the whole site anyway.  I was, however, anxious that I might lose incoming email for a day or so, which would have been a disaster 😦  The transfer to went remarkably smoothly, and my email was up and running in no time at all.  Even better, I have only had one junk mail in the past 24 hours, compared to the usual 100’s (no exaggeration).

I’ve since spent a contented few hours dabbling in my creative impulses, choosing a template and setting out new pages. It seems like a very productive use of my time, even if it sometimes seems a little narcisistic.  But then, that is what the new social media is all about.  Hopefully by sharing my experience, I will be able to help others, as well as generate new business for myself, all for the cost of a few hours of my time. Seems like a good deal.

However there is no doubt that my amateur dabbling in design can be improved greatly by a little genuine expertise.  Look out for phase 2 of my web site soon!
