Website Makeover

I created a website for myself earlier this year using tools available on the hosting service. They were basic and very limited and I have never really been happy with the look but, not knowing how to build my own, I accepted the limitations.

Since then I have educated myself a bit and taken inspiration from what others have done. This weekend Gerry was busy much of the time and I found myself with the time I needed to start a on website makeover!

I’m just a baby in website development but I’ve set a goal for myself to be come web-savvy. In a previous life I was an IT Consultant (or Computer Programmer) so I should be able to do this. I’ve decided to use my website as my canvas with which to unleash my website creativity and skils.

If you’ve a mind, pop over to and tell me what you think! I hope you’ll visit periodically as I hope to update it monthly to show what I’m learning!

P.S.  Don’t tell my husband about this new project. He already thinks I tend to overextend myself.  Mum’s the word, now!


I’m a writer, reader, and creative. I thought by now I’d have things figured out, but I keep coming up with more questions. I think that’s okay. I’m here most mornings pondering ordinary things and the thin places where faith intersects.
  1. Your website is lovely! I'll be checking back often to watch it blossom & grow. (just as you are!)

    I have to confess I share one of your loves–The Canadian Tenors. I saw them on a recent PBS special & immediately downloaded some of their music, including "Hallelujah". They are simply amazing!

    Keep up the good work you do. You're pretty amazing too, my friend!

  2. I like it Linda…mums the work…

  3. Ooh, I like it, too! It's so fresh and welcoming, it reminds me of being outdoors in the garden.

  4. I really love it, Linda. What site are you using? It's really inviting and warm.

  5. Oh girl, somebody's been busy! Congrats on the great new look. 🙂

  6. It's beautiful.

  7. You've done a great job on that blog. No, I won't say that too loud. 🙂 I'll be interested in your progress. I'm learning all this too.

  8. I'm happy to hear that you like the new look! The black and gold of the previous site just wasn't "me". Kim – the site is hosted on doteasy, but I did the pages myself! I love the flexibility of being able to design my own pages and not be tied to a set of templates.

  9. Good job – I like it!
