So, this is my first official post on my new website. It’s very blank at present. Very much a blank slate. I am creating. Actually I am learning to create. It’s like being given a universe to create within, without the instruction book. Much like becoming a human. This website, like a whole world, awaits. It awaits my mark, my soul, heart and depth. It wants me to be within and all around the pages, menus and images. This is going to take a while, but at least I can write to you in the meantime 🙂
Why did I decide to create this website? I wanted to create a space for my voice to be heard. I’ve been silent much of my life. My expression often muted. I had created three previous websites. The first was created with Dreamweaver and was an attempt at an online shop. It was extremely time consuming and I found I had great success selling on stalls. I didn’t know enough about Dreamweaver and when the time came to renew the domain, I instead let it expire. It is now owned by a huge global company – I am gutted! 🙂
The second was a Wix website. This was designed to showcase my healing talents and jewellery. It took a very short time to create, however when I got the bill from Wix, I was horrified. They wanted over £100 / year. I was still very new to sharing my gift professionally and couldn’t afford this. I let the site revert to a Wix domain and tried again.
The third was on WordPress and designed for a project I never had time , expertise or ability to hatch. I let it expire before I began building it.
Finally, at the time I wanted to create this, I had created a good friendship with someone who knows at least how to link a website to a domain. He did the background and let me get on with building. I decided I wasn’t going to waste any more time on building and creating things to only let them go out of usually, lack of knowledge. This time I was going to create an empire.
So here we are 🙂 I hope that my voice can be used to help others.
