I spent the better part of three days editing a new website that is a "template" site. This is my preferred way of getting my personalization onto my sites. I like the Point-2-Agent template site for a general agent site for this reason. My new site is a FSBO site in another state and is a test for a new approach (for me, but a lot of others are already well down that road). To stay on the story line, templates are for me, because I don't want to get mired down in chasing fleas, but I do want to edit in the details without filtering or interpretation by third parties.
In other words, I like what I am doing right now....editing a blog post in the WYSIWYG tab. For us dummies, it means What You See Is What You Get or something like that. I have heard some other interpretations, but they won't do here.
For people who are new to the process, it is worth investigating template sites. You get the hosting, unique URL, a framework complete with graphics, and upload capabilities or more pictures and files. Plus you can edit in the middle of the night if you wake up with a brilliant idea. No waits for a software guru or administrator to plug in your thoughts. I have also found that I learn a lot about Internet things when I get involved.
Tomorrow is a new day.....look in the mirror and smile at your own bad self!
