New Website for Peggy Wright!

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.

  1. You definitely made the right choice for picking Wordpress as your CMS platform. This will make your life easier for updating and promoting your business. It features a lot of freebies that can actually help the rank of your website such as widget, plug-in, and templates. By the way, you can also do the template of your Wordpress using Photoshop. For me, it's much easier to use; and I can actually make the alterations I want from slicing to designing.

  2. I am gradually doing more things with my site. I'm sure that I will be okay with it after the learning curve.

  3. You had a great start for you website, Peggy! Is it finished already? I guess you can still play with different hues. I know you can do it, especially when you’ve already mastered CSS and HTML. Well, just update me for the changes that you'll incorporate in your site. :)
