HTML on the Brain

I've been neglecting my blog...  I know.  But I've been obsessed with working on a new project.

Now, I'm no computer guru.  In fact, other than how to spell the terms, I know nothing about Source Code or HTML.  My working knowledge of computers has barely progressed from AOL to Google.  I'm afraid of Control-Alt-Delete.  And my iMac's operating system still confuses me.

I am, however, a master of the Computer Crash.  I can (and usually do) crash annually.  But, despite my reputation for hard drive annihilation, I am pushing forward into the Digital Unknown.  I. Am. Writing. Code.

If you know me at all, you know that once I get a bee in my bonnet I am a bit single-minded.  I research, ask questions, and generally make a pest of myself to anyone who will listen to me.  And then I jump in with both feet.

My latest project?  Building a website (by myself--really!) for my Scentsy business.  I could have paid someone (that's what most of the other Independent Consultants do).  But where's the fun in that?  So I've chosen my colors, picked a style, and made my first effort.  OK, maybe it's not my first effort, but I'm at the point where I actually have a functioning effort!  LOL

At the risk of looking like I am shamelessly promoting my Scentsy business, I do want to invite you to take a look...  More than shameless promotion, think of it as pride of achievement.  Yes, I'm a little impressed with myself!  Not only is it kinda cute (IMHO), but all the linky-thingys work!  YAY!

So, here is the link to my temporary hosting site. (I can't believe I actually know anything about any type of hosting sites!)  www.wickless-wonder.com.

Well, let me know what you think.  But be kind...  First efforts and all, remember?

I'm a Master Decision-maker...  Ha ha haha...  Actually I'm a Decision Procrastinator.  It's not that I don't want to bring things to a conclusion--to resolve the issues...  But, first, I have to research.  And by research, what I really mean is that I need to consult all available resources.  Consumer Reports.  PC Magazine.  Cnet.  ZDnet.  The BBB...

But, today, I made an impromptu executive decision.  Immediately.  On the spot.  Without second-guessing.  And you know what?  It feels good!
