Website from scratch?


Blogging has been a part of my life for eight years, and it does not seem like I’ll be giving it up any time soon.  Yeah, I become lazy or get busy or change my username (or even blogging platforms) all the time, I still end up going back to writing eventually.

The funny thing is, despite nearly a decade of doing this, I still can’t get a grip on website building.  I know there are loads of tools and services out there that help you to build your own website, but I just could not be bothered.  Either that or I am just being lazy again.

I guess I’ve always been a person more concerned with content and I knew that there are sites available in which I could download and install templates for free.  The free blogging platforms are also still working for me, so I thought that there is no need to fix anything if they aren’t broken.

But who knows, maybe I will get around to thinking that I would be happier to manage my own website or indeed want to create dozens of new ones.  I will certainly have more control over everything, but at the moment, I’m perfectly happy that it’s mostly someone else’s problem.

Wow. Blogging for 8 years.

I think it's time to build your own site. It's fairly easy, and there are lots of hosts that can install WordPress for you.

Inuit is good but very limiting.

It's funny, but back in 1999, I and my sister started making our personal websites from scratch, before we ever learned about blogs. We had a book with simplified instructions on html programming, and we started there. Now, we're too lazy to start from scratch, as blogs are really more convenient. :-)

Neil: Yeah, I'll have a really good think about it. :)

Marikoy: I think I did one too -- think I used a Microsoft program but can't remember what I did as I've lost interest. hehe!

Miss Chievous: Ooh, well done you! I hope you really enjoy that and let me know! XD
