I started this project thinking it would be a piece of cake. I downloaded the software, began to work, and completed my design within 24 hours. That wasn’t the hard part. Now came the time to figure out how to move hosting, transfer domain, backup database and upload/restore via FTP… does this all sound like another language to you? I probably said this a hundred times, but I literally felt like my brain was weaving in and out of a trigonometry problem that was light years outside of my ability to understand. If matters couldn’t get worse – this math problem was coupled with frightening possibilities of “losing my blog FOREVER” if I did something wrong. Yes, that still makes my heart leap just thinking about it.
But hey, let’s celebrate because this story comes with a happy ending!!
I am happy to announce two amazing changes in D’Attoma Studios this week, but I’m only going to give you ONE today. After being “blogless” for two weeks, I am feeling very deprived and hoping to give you a reason to come back tomorrow. You won’t want to miss it!
I completely redesigned my website from scratch, and I think that it is finally something that reflect me! I’ve always used “template” websites and heard lots of rave reviews about a company called SHOW IT. I didn’t really want to switch because I knew it was be a hassle (understatement of the century), but my old website had to be upgraded and completely restructured. So, I figured this was the time to make the leap. I couldn’t be more excited about the result!!
