I have been trying to update my website for roughly the past five years. I originally was going to hire someone to do it. I knew nothing about making a website. After hiring and firing two “designers,” a friend who was in a web design program at the local junior college offered to do it. This seemed perfect. Until she took my first $100 payment, skipped town and wouldn’t reply to any of my messages. This was a couple of years ago. I still haven’t heard from her.

Then I decided I was going to have to do it myself. There’s been a running joke around our house these past few months. “Do you hear something? Is the house possessed? That wailing and moaning . . . The agonized cries of tormented, damned souls are filtering up from hell! . . . No? Wait . .  . oh, it’s just Ellen working on Dreamweaver.”

At last, the big event happened this week. I hit “put” and it went live. I finally have a website again. I feel like the tortoise that just crossed the finish line. Or a damned soul who just got a pardon.

The site is Zebra Crossing Picture Factory, or zebracrossing.org

  1. Hello! Thought I'd return the visit. This looks like a great place to hang out. I love the collages on your website, too.

  2. The story of your webpage sounds like a stony road indeed. But it looks great! So far everything worked for me, and I like the general setup and the images. I will have to go back and look some more.

  3. Thanks BT. I did it on a Mac, on which it looks good, but have been discovering that on some versions of I.Explorer it doesn't work as well. I've heard this is a common problem. Alas…!
