Website news...


 
My new website has been installed and I am super happy with it!
For two years I had wanted my own site, but I found that local companies charged over-the-top-prices for mediocre services. I tried building one myself, but on account of too little web design know-how, I sadly gave up.  The most important criteria for me was that A.) I have complete control over content management and B.) the site is aesthetically appealing and C.) it incorporated a shopping cart system. As luck would have it I was researching web-related stuff on the net, when I came across an article that mentioned the cutest site on the block. The name appealed to me, so I followed the link and immediately knew that I had finally found what I had been looking for for so long. I contacted the owner, Brick, and he was most helpful in answering all my questions and guiding me through the whole ordering process. I knew straight away which template I wanted and although it's not exclusively my own I'm fairly sure it's exclusive here in Germany! Since I needed Euro pricing, Brick installed that for me free-of-charge. In fact, once you buy one of the many packages on offer there are no recurring fees. The websites are geared toward small business owners and interface with Joomla, a popular content management system. The cutest site on the block has great tutorials to get you started, as well as all sorts of SEO-related information.
I will be spending this weekend adding bi-lingual content to my site...and hopefully very soon a new range of products.

Wishing everyone a happy weekend!

  5. Duni, I am so happy for you, it is very pretty. I hope all is going well with you, I have really missed you. I think of you everytime I get a tissue, lol! I do apologize for being such a slacker, but my health goes up and down every day. Soon and hopefully I will be doing much better since I am now seeing a pain doctor.

    I've heard of Cutest Site on the Block before but (mistakenly) thought they only did blog templates.
