It was a humble blog and it’s a humble business. But still — it’s kind of a fun adventure to look back on.
Why and how? Well, without the blog it’s hard to see how the guesthouse would have come about. And without the blogging skills, it’s hard to imagine I would have gone ahead and made a website
I did, however, using BaseKit, the free web editor that came packaged with the HostGator hosting package. I’d recommend HG for being responsive, easy to use and because they accept PayPal. What really blows me away, looking back on it, is how easy BaseKit was. I did a lot of stuff the hard way because I was scared I’d “lose everything” otherwise, but that worked out fine. And when I got up the guts to do it right (well, slightly better, let’s say) that was do-able also.
Tell you one thing, nothing surprises me more than to hear how good WordPress supposedly is for websites. Would you have guessed that based on the free version of WordPress? Not me.
