Our new website at last!

Well, at last a new website; it has only taken about two years!

I have discovered WordPress, a tool to enable you to easily build “blog” type websites (like this one), and best of all, WordPress is free. They do claim that you can be up and running in 5 minutes but I am not sure who they are referring to, it certainly took me longer than that! It also took some time to figure out how to use it and to build my first site (this is my second attempt). Of course that may have been a lot to do with the fact I didn’t realise I would need a web-server to do the work on so I had to sort that out as well and install it on my Mac.

I have also purchased a “theme”, Thesis, which overlays WordPress with cool features for customising your site. There are thousands of themes available and a lot of them are free.

At the moment the site is pretty basic but I will be adding to it as time goes on. I hope to add a Tips & Tricks page next so let me know if there are any little things that are bugging you or you would just like to know how to do and I will try to incorporate them. If I get enough interest in the site I will also be looking at adding some training pages including videos. Depending how things go, these my be by subscription only, I haven’t quite worked that out yet.

So please come back often and check what is happening. We will also welcome any feedback or constructive criticisms.
