I had a very old website done in old technology, and I wanted to create a new website in WordPress because I wanted to update my site and to include a blog.
I hope to do a blog post at least once a week. My first post is up.
I intend to have an ongoing category called color, in which I will discuss color for fiberartists. I will put up the first post next week.
I still have things I want to do on the site, like being able to click on the graphic on my home page to go to other pages, but I have to spend time figuring it out.
I would not say that WordPress is easy, but part of the problem may be that I have too much experience with HTML. I wanted to do things that I could do in DreamWeaver, and it has taken me time to figure them out in WordPress. If you are going to do a WordPress site, I recommend buying a template that is good for sites with a lot of photos. I am using Photocrati. I could probably have built the site from scratch, but I want to make fiberart, not websites.
