New Home Page Video

 

I’ve had quite a journey trying to create the two websites which comprise our on-line businesses: Dream Mountain Studio and Ready To Build. I’ve gone down several avenues from hiring a big website company to build and host the site, to a guy who sold an on-line site builder and finally, to a private person who wanted to learn how to build websites and had a lot of technical background which she thought would enable her to master the art of website design. Suffice it to say, each of those scenarios had its drawbacks and now I have a young fellow in a town near my home who I can hire for a reasonable rate by the hour.

My last designer did great work and handed over two great sites but I needed to add some products to our offerings (offerings, I just love that word!) You can probably guess that web-tech is not my strong suit but since I have been fooling around on-line for a while now, I knew there had to be a way to do what I wanted to do without hiring someone to do it for me. So… last night, I cracked the code!

My home page was configured in a way that didn’t correlate with the rest of the pages so I surmised that the anomalous code must exist somewhere on the site. I pressed every button I could find and I’m sure I overlooked  the correct one several times…but finally I found the code and was able to change out our video.

I’m stoked and now I have to tweak a few more things to have my new pages conform to the rest of the site.

Girl, love your new video. Although I can view it directly from your website, I cannot with the FaceBook link. It just doesn’t allow you to click on the “go” arrow in the center of the video. You’ve got the bells, but keep working on those whistles!

Whoa! This blog looks exactly like my old one! It’s on a completely different subject but it has pretty much the same layout and design. Outstanding choice of colors!
