God Bless My Bride

With the importance of digital and new media in my field, I felt I needed to prove a point to myself. I could have hired a digital whiz to design my new website, but instead I resigned myself to doing it myslef with the technical assistance of the brightest non-expert I knew. My lovely bride. I have just got to say that I thought I was looking at a 5K jaunt. I never knew it was going to be a marathon. Under no other circumstances would I have had the opportunity to teach myself how to build an entire website. And while I had help, I must say that I really did a huge chunk of the work. To say I have renewed appreciation for how much planning and mapping help the process, is an understatement. But now I'm happy to say I've done it and sent it out to the first volley of folks to take a look. It was actually fun once I passed the halfway point because I was too far in to turn tail and run. Is it perfect? No. Will it do the job and be the basis for the site I'll have for the rest of my life. I hope so. Have a look. And by all means, if you see a typo or grammar guffaw, please shout it out. Camwritesads.com
