Web Design for Dummies

Deciding to scrap the old family web site and rebuild it just 4 days before leaving the country was a bit hasty.  Since I already owned the domain name, lichtfamily.org,  I had to wait a overnight for control of the address pointers to transfer to my new hosting home.  After that everything went pretty fast.

This web site has been put together with WordPress.  I followed their suggestions for hosting it at BlueHost.  I am very impressed with the Thesis plugin for customizing the theme, style, etc.  So far, I’m only using the Arjuna theme while I get used to WordPress.  I plan to do more with Thesis later.

A very viable alternative would have been to host the site at wordpress.org.  Likewise, I could have registered for a new domain name with BlueHost and been up and running even faster.
