Wow. Now I kind of understand how a genuine web site creator geek spends his or her evenings.
Having fun. Obsessed. Being frustrated. Happy. Worried. Yet in the end... feeling good.
I just spent a couple of hours with a template-based web site creation service, Wix. I had the idea that a service like that could be a good way for Salem Community Vision to put up a functional web site quickly and cheaply.
So I Googled "web site creation service," or something like that.
After a few minutes of looking at Ten Best listings and such, I got intrigued by Wix. After a few minutes of looking at pre-fashioned web site Wix templates, I chose one that seemed close to what I was looking for.
Then it was just a matter of flowing with the energy of obsession. Initially my intention was that I was going to just play around a little with Wix.
A few hours later, my cup of strong coffee drained, I had an entire web site. Or at least a damn good start at one.
My main worry now is whether HTML-5, whatever the heck that is, is compatible with enough browsers. I came across a review of Wix that said the trendy, cool, cutting-edge HTML-5 coding used by Wix is apt to befuddle older browsers.
So anyone who reads this can be my (unpaid) beta tester.
Let me know if the website works well on your computer. There also is a Wix mobile version that can be tested on a smartphone or tablet. It seems to function nicely.
