My website goes live!




Last night I took the plunge and pressed the 'Go Live' button on my new website. I've still to do some tweaking to some aspects that weren't obvious in preview mode ( for example I don't know what happened to the gallery heading  images) but overall I'm pretty chuffed!!  Bob  (from Words and Pixels) gave me some excellent advice  and in the end I decided rather than  a bespoke website or a free one I'd take the compromise template approach, signing up with Clicpic. I took a 2 week free trial  and played around with it over Xmas and decided that it would suit my purposes.What's taken the time is shrinking the pictures down to the right size, loading them, writing the blurb that goes with them and shuffling them around in galleries.
It wasn't really possible to give folks a preview for comment before going live so please take a look now and I'd love to know how you like it, whether you find it easy to navigate  and whether there's any glitches.

Your website looks marvelous, Mags. I especially love Sea Stars...but I could live with any number of them! Congrats.

A very easy and simple web site to navigate with a pleasing background colour which compliments the art work. I like it! Sue

Just a small detail - the blog address on the homepage doesn't work as a link yet. :-)
