So, I suppose in the blogging world, we all know how "fun" it can be to create a new website. I love a fresh new website, but I also know the downside. We have all been there, so we bought a domain....now what? ...Right? All dressed up and nowhere to go. Well, I thought I would share my first website buying experience with you:
I started out a bit naive in the world of website building. I thought you buy a website, and BAM you're done - there it is, fresh new page! I was aware that it would take some coding, but to completely start from scratch...I had no idea what I was doing. I purchased my domain, with no hosting. So, I had a website...but it wasn't even there. No one handed me the "how to" book, until it was too late. I eventually found out hosting was needed, but seeing as how I wanted a blog website - I then purchased the WRONG hosting. One oops after another. I was frustrated, and lost. After that, you would think I would have learned my lesson...nope. I was refunded for the wrong hosting I purchased, and forgot that by being refunded I would lose hosting...so, I purchased website designing through the company. ....so now I have website design capabilities, a domain, and no hosting! I'm glad I can laugh about it now, but talk about a HEADACHE and a half.
I think life would have been a lot easier, with an easy website builder to say the least.
I was asked to tell my story as a sponsored post by Bucks2Blog from an online website building company for compensation, however, these thoughts are my own.
