I find myself in a position where I need to build a few websites. I have to replace the old Allure home with a new one, and create another for my new YA career. My former web master has his own stuff going on, and it's time I learn to handle these types of things on my own! -nod,nod- So why am I terrified? Because I have no idea what I'm doing. I'm getting ready to commit to a hosting site...and I'm freezing up. Will I want to do something that this hosting place won't allow? Once I'm stuck in a contract, what if I don't like them? Can I afford this kind of expense when I make very little? The bigger questions are...can I learn? Can I create? As it stands, on a daily basis, I pull up hosting sites and look at them all...I read what they say I get with purchase and I wonder how many of them are trying to rope me in just to screw me (and not in the fun way). Maybe I should just stick with blogs...free, easy, just as full of information. Of course, I can't hook paypal up to my blog for a future backlist purchase option. I can't get a nifty Allure@allurevansanz.com email address either. And a website looks more professional and you can do anything with it...right? Oi. I feel a case of the worry-hives creeping in. I guess the best thing to do is just plunge in and figure it out from the water. Wish me luck...or possibly, be ready to throw a floaty tube at me. Best, AyVee Allure Van Sanz
