Me build a website? Not quite something I had imagined for myself. Not that I doubted my ability but building a website simply wasn’t in the scope of things I thought would become my reality. The funny thing about life is that sometimes your intentions for life and the intention life has for you are two different things.
So how did this unintended website come to be? I want to say it all started with a question. A questioned that caused a shift in my perspective. Upon rethinking, I suddenly had a desire to extend myself and explore the possibility of engaging in something new.
So a dear friend of mine asked me if I could spend my days doing something I enjoyed; what would that be? My response was, something that would allow me to engage my mind with creativity. I find that I enjoy various activities so long as I have the ability to be creative.
As a student, I loved the assignments that allowed me to infuse creative thoughts and artistic presentations. As a youth leader, I enjoyed coming up with games and activities for services and events. In the last few years my involvement in publication design has really opened my eyes to how much I love creating.
So here’s the other question; in what way can this creativity be expressed? My friend proposed the idea of a website which I thought was pretty cool but had no idea where to start in terms of the information I would share on the site or building the actual site.
The Roadmap that Showed Me How
My friend put me in touch with a friend of his who then sent me a Youtube video on how to research topics for web content. In watching that video, my eye caught another related video which was posted by Lisa Irby – author of 2CreateAWebsite.com. Lisa’s videos led me to her site which I found extremely informative. I started giving attention to Lisa’s site and eventually I came across a web hosting company she mentions called Site Build It (SBI).
In all honesty, even though I had grown to trust Lisa, I was reluctant to purchase SBI because I wasn’t quite sure it was the right thing for me. I ended up making the purchase simply because I was a novice when it came to web building and I knew i needed a thorough guide if I were to be successful.
I think its about here that I’m supposed to tell you that upon purchasing SBI I was blown away on how easy it was to build a site and that I had my site up and running in a matter of hours. Would I have liked for that to be the case? Yes. Do I still need to tell you that it wasn’t? I hope not.
SBI is really for those who want to learn the things needed to build a winning website and understand that doing so takes time and patience. Yeah, there are other companies out there but I wanted to be taught and I understood that the knowledge I wanted to acquire does not happen in a matter of hours. I followed SBI, and now, not only was I able to built my site but SBI provided the know how so I can manage it on my own.
The thing I enjoy about this site is not only is it a new experience for me but its also an avenue in which I can share my creations and ideas. I had fun designing the site and continue in this fun each time new content is created.
Working on developing this site has brought me into continuous thought as I am ever thinking of ways to improve the experience of each visitor and satisfy their search. I love coming up with new ideas and sincerely hope that the ideas expressed on this site are truly enjoyable and fitting to the needs of my visitors.
