Taking into account I’m now 55, and not in an age of being brought up with computers, mobile phones and anything else technical, with children who appear to be more clever than me. I pat myself on the back as i have raised them. I am forever asking them questions of technical things i know nothing about, I have had an array of answers: ‘There is a big thing out there called ‘The web’, or ‘Youtube’, and ‘Audible’ where you can listen and learn about stuff, thats how i try to roll now. I stumbled across this quote I couldn’t help but send it to them.
Well, where do i start….. oh my, this has been something else. I actually had the shopping cart added in July. I have had two items added to start me off, so when you go onto my website….yes i have two sets of items for sale. Well, we are now in December, it hasn’t been for lack of trying, when you don’t know what you are doing and spend hours, because i have, trying to add items to it and is all gobbledy gook to me.I have no idea what all these boxes are on wordpress, divi, and woo commerce. Yes i have been tearing my hair out, crying with frustration, leaving it for weeks on end because i can’t face another failure, but hey, along came my friend Lacey and gave me a lesson ( thanks Lacey) it was sooo appreciated. I thought i had wrapped it all up. Well, actually after she had gone i spent the best part of 5 hours adding all my photos to my gallery editing and re-sizing them, putting all the tags on, felt super pleased with myself, updated, came out of the page without the save & exit and voila, they all went back where they came from. Screeeeeeem. So i thought no, keep calm, and go to bed and start a fresh tomorrow.
I have finally managed to achieve everything i did last night, and SAVE & EXIT….yay. And not just that i have done all my content for each product (Still on draft) no you can’t see it yet!!! until I’m completely ready which i hope will be any time now!
And failures are good aren’t they? You can only get better!
I have to say i think i am on my way to being able to build a website….. hahaha.
