The Journey of Building My Website: Challenges, Wins, and Lessons Learned



Hey there, fellow tech lovers and future website wizards! So, I've got a bit of a story to share with you all. As someone who's pretty comfortable with technology, diving into the world of website building was a bit like stepping into a new universe for me. Today, I'm excited to take you along on my wild ride – from the bumps in the road to the moments of victory and everything in between.

Challenges Faced

Ice cream flavours

Picking a new platform for my website building journey was a bit like choosing a flavour at an ice cream shop – exciting but also a little overwhelming. While I dodged the coding bullet, getting the hang of the website builders was like learning a whole new dance routine. Making my site look just right on 4 different screens? Let's just say it involved a bit of trial and error. Oh, and don't even get me started on crafting content and tackling the mysteries of SEO – let's just say I've become a bit of a search engine whisperer along the way.

Wins and Milestones

Warm hug

Launching my website was like sending my baby off to their first day of school – a mix of nerves and excitement. Hearing positive feedback from friends, family, and fellow entrepreneurs was like a big warm hug. And when I saw that spike in website traffic from all corners of the globe? Talk about a proud moment!

Lessons Learned


So, what did I learn from all of this? Well, for starters, patience and persistence became my best friends. Embracing the learning curve and reaching out for help when I needed it made all the difference. And let's not forget the importance of being adaptable and always staying curious – there's a whole world of website-building tools out there just waiting to be discovered.
