iWeb iCry

This week was a very busy week. I’m beginning to think this entire summer is going to be more of the same. I should be better organized. I’m doing a poor job of keeping up with dull but important things and I admit I’m not saying no to any of the fun stuff! If someone is kind enough to offer me the smallest distraction—I’m off!

Today I got tired of waiting for a miracle to happen, as in IT angels descending from heaven and building me a new, fresher website. I faced the fact a miracle or even a pity intervention wasn’t going to happen, and I had to do this on my own. I’m not very clever with this stuff so I really had to bite the bullet and watch the many web builder tutorials, which assured me it was all so simple…

I started rebuilding my website in another format because I hated how cumbersome and hard to change my first site was, so I started a Mac iWeb site. I got several pages built today and was eager to publish but I discovered if I wanted to add my book trailers to my site—and I do, I have to upgrade to OSX Lion, which doesn’t go on sale until July. Finding that out was a bummer because my old website is a rumbled mess that’s not presentable to polite company. I feel like I’m standing around in public half-dressed. It’s not good. I can’t add to my old website anymore and summer contests are coming up that I would love to be prepared for. Hopefully when Apple said OSX Lion goes on sale in July—they meant July 1st.

They always say this stuff is so simple, “build a site in minutes”, I was shocked to look at the clock last night and realize how many hours had past on collecting simple things like book covers, photo searches, reviews and fussing with type fonts. Who could build a real website in minutes? Do they say these things to make people like me feel inadequate? It’s totally working.

Has anyone else out there built a website lately?

  2. Wish I could help, but I'm technically challenged. :(
    Good Luck.


  3. Mercifully, I have a webmaster! It is awe inspiring to me that you're teaching yourself how to do it!

  4. Hello Amber and Tessie. I'm pretty sure I should not be a teaching example to anyone, except maybe a
    I'm realizing its more about Un-learning the old process, so that I don't do everything twice or mess up what I just did.
