I set about re making my website earlier this month. I wanted to build it with wordpress to gain more functionality and ease of use.
Now, I’m not overly technologically advanced, but I have used wordpress before, so I downloaded wordpress to my hosting service and started messing around.
I have been tearing my hair out for weeks trying to figure out how to replace my previous page with my wordpress page.
Today, I finally came to terms with the fact that the old just HAD to be deleted. Que anxiety over saying goodbye to that site. It was made up from a lot of blood, sweat and tears several years ago in a mad dash to get to the end of my graphic design diploma. Because it was made several years, and computers, ago, I have no idea were the original files have been put.
After a rant on facebook about deleting everything to start again, but not wanting to, it was suggested by some more tech savvy friends and family that I download the entire site. This made it a little easier to hit the delete button. But I admit I had butterflies and a sinking feeling in my stomach when I finally convinced myself to do it.
And now I’m here…
I’m sure I still have a lot of bits and pieces to fine tune, but I’m ready to begin this adventure!
