Why! Hello there!
I am uber annoyed that it took me so long to get back to Weebly!
Taking a long story and making it less long, I was heartily convinced that making my own website from scratch was the way to go.
I got Hosting, I bought domain names, I looked at and purchased different templates and programs to install onto wordpress, I downloaded and started learning how to use wordpress.
Ultimately I was convinced that wordpress was the "functioning like an adult" equivalent of having a website. What ended up happening instead was me, frustrated and crying at the back end of a build system that I had no idea how to use to it's full potential. It gave me a PLETHORA of options and I got more caught up in the "What can I do with all of these plugins" and did not focus on the rather more important "what content should I include to interact with my customers and potential clients".
Recreating the wheel was incredibly time consuming and kept me from actually doing anything useful like proper blog posts, easily uploading pictures to show off my latest creations and curating a shop where you can directly buy things from me!
Thankfully I woke up and have come back to a MUCH easier (and Nicole proof) way of doing things, and now, as they say in House Atradies, "the content will flow" (or something like that).
Love to you all,
It's a brand new blog and I have honestly go no idea what I want to do with it as of yet.
What DOES one write in a Business/Craft blog! How will I structure my posts? Will I some how make everything about how awesome Mad As Designs is?
Will I update and show off sneak peeks of the work I'm doing?
Will I write from conventions and complain about the price of the food?
Could I possibly video myself in a craft store....
So many ideas!
Just wait and see, there might even be a tutorial or six.... And Freebies! I LOVE freebies.
