Updating My Website

A photo to enjoy

I took the time today to update my website, following some suggestions on a website review offered by 1st turning point. I struggle because the website builder I use, often refuses my requests, gets bogged down, and I have to log out and back in again, and so on. This likely occurs  because I don’t understand the workings of HTML and I try to do too much at once.   I have learned that I need to save what I have changed before I go on to change something else.  I toned down the color, and would like to get rid of the logo and the fireworks banner, but haven’t figured out how to change that. So six and a half hours later … ZZZZzzzzzzz. I may hunt up a new design.

Have a great week. Would love to read your comments.

      Thank you for the link to your blog article with such a multitude of helpful tactics for bloggers. I hope everyone who stops by here will check it out. I’ll need to set aside some time to make some of those things happen here.

    We had the same problem with my husband’s website (he does metal art). The site would freeze up, and it finally got to a point where he couldn’t edit it at all. His brother was running the site and never fixed it, and my husband got so annoyed he finally just did away with it all together. It is very frustrating! It would be so nice if websites were as easy to make as blogs are!

    I like the pinks and burgundies on your site, it is very easy to read. I really enjoy reading your poetry.

      Sorry to take so long to get back to you. I need to disable the need to approve comments if I’m going to be so tardy in checking! I hope your husband will not give up altogether. I just log out, shut it down, and log in again and it often works. But Blogs like wordpress (I haven’t tried any others) can publicize his art just as well.

    Hi, I’m elger123 on AOL.com; Elderfox @ WordPress–right now I’m doing a series of articles re showing dogs…I’m not getting feedback and am undecisive if I should continue…anyhow, I’m also a struggling novelist (hit a BIG Muse blank) and not working on anything at the moment. I’ve a friend who helps me with the PC stuff and my daughter steps in too (she lost her job last year) when she isn’t sending out resumes. I’m looking forward to being a visitor on your site. mE

      Thanks for stopping by. Sorry it took so long for me to reply! Check out the blog site listed by tia in the comments below. Very helpful. Good luck with your show dogs … and your blogging … although luck has little to do with the success in either. Just persistence and education and hard work!

      This is a late reply, but I did want to encourage you to continue writing. If your passion is showing dogs, join Facebook … yes it is easy to do … just google it and carry on … and then search and ask to ‘friend” Anne Glasgow. She shows champion Golden Retrievers, and currently has 5 dogs. She is a golden retriever breeder as well. Her list of contacts is long indeed, and if what you write offers something to experienced competitors, you might pick up some interest in your articles. Or she may know some newcomers that would gain from reading your articles. The trend is heading toward ezine magazines as well, and they are eager for well written articles.
