Finally, a website in the making...

Last summer I began the attempt to create a new website for my art and writing. Wordpress proved daunting as I purchased a portfolio template that I was not able to master. The months ticked by. At last, I somehow hit on the right search terms, and Google delivered a list of sites that offer website software that you can buy quite reasonably and download, as opposed to on-line sites, like Wix, Weebly or Squarespace, that charge (much higher) monthly fees for hosting and a domain name with a website. I already had a hosting company, 4goodhosting.com, located in Vancouver, with very reasonable rates, and I have a domain name through Google (US$10/yr). I was looking for a way to build my own site, but also integrate this blog of 14 years.

And I found everything with RapidWeaver, and the purchase of a few plug-ins! I am super excited. I have a lot of work ahead building this site, but it is begun, viable and live! After the struggle of trying to figure out how to do this and the endless searches, I feel like one lucky artiste.

It's here: http://brendaclews.com/. Go check it out.

Like wow, yowza!

And my blog page on my website instantly updated when I posted this blog post!!! Believe me when I say no platforms are much interested in Blogger these days and an integration like this is hard to find. Brilliantismo, YourHead Software, who made the RapidBlog plug-in and who offer it as a free download.
