I am in the process of getting a new website. Hopefully it will be up and ready in a couple of days. This time, I bit the bullet and had it professionally done, and I am so glad I did.
I know enough about coding to be a danger to those with any sense of style in web design. I can do the basics - mostly text - but ask me to do graphics or anything remotely interesting and I'm at a total loss. I just don't have the knowledge - or the interest in spending hours learning - how to do web design. My websites tend to be boring with little color, cut 'n' paste graphics, and very little spacial interest.
Thank goodness there are those out there who do have the talent and interest. Yes, it is costing me - a cost I really can't afford. But at the same time, I can justify the expense with knowing that the coming site is so much better than anything I could have ever done, even in my wildest dreams.
We each have our own strengths and weaknesses. My strength is organization and writing - not web design. And I will be the first to admit that.
So, to Stonecreek Media, my hat is off to you. Thank you. Your fee is well-earned and I feel my money is well-spent.
For anyone reading this, keep an eye out for the new http://www.vickyburkholder.com coming soon to a website near you.
Today's thought: "You can write anything you want to - a six-act blank verse, symbolic tragedy or a vulgar short, short story. Just so that you write it with honesty and gusto, and do not try to make somebody believe that you are smarter than you are. What's the use? You can never be smarter than you are." - Brenda Ueland
Today's teaser: You buy an antique desk. While cleaning it, you find a hidden cache containing an old letter and a map. The name on the letter is a family you recognize. What do you do?
