Two years ago when I decided I wanted to create a website that would honor those women who had been instrumental in molding me in my youth. Acquaintances told me that I could not do it No one would want to read what I had to offer. Being the hardheaded senior I am, I did it anyway. I discovered Weebly who made it easy to create my site. And yes, I did it myself - did not hire someone else to do it. Hardheaded - yes.
I spent many agonizing hours creating this site that spring but was quite pleased with myself with the first product. I created it so I could add to it often and I did. Being old has given me knowledge of a lot of stuff that I thought others might want to know. Eventually I added a blog.
One year ago I was accepted by Google AdSense since my website had enough content to qualify for their ads. Again I struggled to add some advertisement using their complicated process (complicated to me, anyway), I plan on adding more ads at some point, but not so many as to affect the look of the site.
Also, one year ago, I received notice that I had had two people click on my site. I cannot tell you how thrilled I was that two people had actually visited my site. I was hoping some others would look at it and possibly return.
I had also joined Facebook to see pictures of loved ones and old friends. I wondered if my Facebook friends might be interested in my site. Weebly allowed a link to publish on Facebook, so with some trepidation I tried it.
One year later I am so happy to say that last month I had over 1000 clicks on my site. Thank you Weebly for allowing an old dog to learn new tricks and thank you, thank you, thank you to all of you who have visited my site. I promise to keep it fresh and hope you join me often.
