It's alive!

www.christinegrove.com is live!  It was designed in iweb. I chose a template and used photoshop to cut out some of the images and pasted them directly onto the iweb pages. From there I could move them around to where I wanted them.  And it all looked pretty good if I do say so myself...until I launched it.

 I used godaddy's hosting and FTP (hope I worded that correctly) and first you couldn't even see it. Then the web address repeated itself-repeatedly-in the address bar. And these lovely black boxes appeared around some of the images. So I did what anyone would do...I posted my problem on facebook.  Charlie Diamond was able to get the site up properly. He fixed some code and did some other fancy computer stuff and I am now the proud parent of an actual website! And since it's a work in progress he'll be working with me to bring it up to spectacular.  I was just glad I was able to put down the bat and glue my hair back to my head. I still need to get rid of those black lines around some of the images. But for now, I'm just glad it's up.

(I was really flying blind with this and found him very helpful so I'm going to post Diamond Computer's contact info. They do it all (I asked). If you need help email charlie1182000@gmail.com or call 530-405-7594.)

It is lovely Christine, even with the small details that you need to fix. It never looks perfect first time, so don't panic. You did well, and your work displays your skills beautifully - congratulations.

Well done Christine! I must admit mine's been neglected for far too long. I have a fear of changing anything on it in case it all disappears!xx
