Web Design for Dummies
Deciding to scrap the old family web site and rebuild it just 4 days before leaving the country was a bit hasty. Since I already owned the domain name, lichtfamily.org, I had to wait a overnight for control of the address pointers to transfer to my new hosting home. After that everything went pretty fast.
This web site has been put together with WordPress. I followed their suggestions for hosting it at BlueHost. I am very impressed with the Thesis plugin for customizing the theme, style, etc. So far, I’m only using the Arjuna theme while I get used to WordPress. I plan to do more with Thesis later.
A very viable alternative would have been to host the site at wordpress.org. Likewise, I could have registered for a new domain name with BlueHost and been up and running even faster.
