Creating this GODDAMN website!
Updated: Dec 31, 2020
Can You believe that as a graphic designer, manga creator, and Illustrator, I don't have a website?It's needless to say that in this day and age, anyone who's in business needs to have an online presence. Growing up alongside social media, I can work those apps like the back of my hand. But the one thing I absolutely dreaded was creating a website for myself.
I had taken a few web design and programming classes back in college, but all I remember was barely making it through those semesters. I avoided the subject like the plague in school, work, and even with freelance projects. That has been to my detriment as a graphic designer. I can't begin to tell you how much money I have left on the table simply because I couldn't build a client's website! But I have decided enough was enough. Before 2020 is out, I will set up my website (Even if it's on the last day of the year).
Let me tell you why it took so long. I made this resolution back in January, but the whole time I was daunted by the thought of having to learn code. Well, enter our lord and savior; WIX! This is not an ad, and I'm not being paid to say this; the process has been a hell of a lot easier than expected and I didn't have to write a single line of code. I woke up this morning at 7 am, logged onto wix.com and just went at it. There were a few bumps here and there, but with a little trial and error, I was able to figure it out. I've got to say, I am happy with my website.
To everyone out there that's in business, whether it's baking cookies or cutting hair, or whatever it may be, get yourself a website today. If you still feel overwhelmed, reach out to me and I'll help as best as I can. After all, I'm professional web designer and developer at this point.
Happy New Years Everyone!
