I am not a web designer. I’m just throwing that out there. I am determined though and that goes a long way.
Not only am I not a web designer but I hate liars and those that tease. For example, when you go to a WordPress theme page, it shows you a perfect example of how the theme will look. It’s perfect, it’s exactly what you wanted and so you install and activate it only to find that you have the bare bones and have to do LOADS of work to get it anywhere near what the advertised picture looks like.
So you sweat and you swear and you get it maybe half way there. It’s been a slog! Then you spend three more hours trying to do all of the rest only to find (after hours of toil) that in order to get these fab features, you need to upgrade to a pro version which just happens to come with a hefty price tag.
My original work website was thrown together in an afternoon nearly eight years ago and you can tell. Thankfully I haven’t relied on it at all to bring in work! I set myself some goals earlier in this year and one of those was to rebrand my copywriting self, putting together a significantly better website as well as having a photo shoot done and creating a new logo. Curly and Candid is staying just as she is. I might tinker with a new theme from time to time, however, this old girl has been happily rambling on for ten years now and is just fine as she is. My angst has been over the new business website.
Again, after many hours of swearing the website is taking shape (to be launched at a later date), my photo shoot has been completed and I have my images (more on this later) and I have my new logo, which again I’ll post more about later. This I can share with you, what do you think?
