I was working on my website the whole day yesterday. I got this reminder in the e-mail that my domain/web-hosting is about to expire. So I went to check it out.
First I had to get a new password because it's been so long since I logged in I forgot what it was. :) Then they wanted my PayPal account info and when I came all the way to the end after trying to figure out for about an hour how much money they want from me, the bill said 200$.
Are you crazy? I'm not giving you 200$ for something I can get for free! Jeez! I paid for my domain which was something like 15$ for a year but not for web-hosting. I have no idea what will happen when it expires in 10 days.
So, I used Wordpress for my web design and it drew me crazy. I would probably obtain a degree from web design sooner than figure out Wordpress. And to make it even worse I was hacked a couple of years ago and couldn't log in since then. :)
Justhost was so nice to offer me Weebly and it's way easier. And when I put everything together it dawned on me that since I'm not paying them for web-hosting it's very likely it will all be deleted. Well, now what?
Just in case, I registered with Weebly and got a sub-domain from them. So here it is. Natasha May Art World. :)
It's not much but it's better then before. And it took me ages to find instructions and tutorials to modify things. Like the background photo and "recent articles". And don't get me started on the recent photos app.
I wanted a widget that would take my FB photos and display it as a gallery or preferably a slide show. But you know in a nice way, like maybe 4 big ones and the rest smaller below or hidden but all I could find are the ones that display every single photo. So I ended up using a FB photo badge which I don't really like but it's the closest I could find. Talking about complicating stuff. :)
Enough about that. :) Today I'm showing you a Chinese Goddess Kuan Yin for 13 Goddesses challenge.
She is a virgin goddess of Unconditional Love, Compassion and Mercy. She is regarded by many as the protector of women and children. She is also a grantor of wishes, and in particular, a fertility goddess capable of granting children. She is the champion of the unfortunate, the sick, the disabled, the poor, and those in trouble. She is the most beloved of the Chinese goddesses.
And I'm combining this goddess with 29 Faces challenge.
My Cotton Candy Girls On-line Workshop is now open and running. Registration will be open until end of May, so you still have time to join us. :)
