Weekly Summary: WEEK ONE
This week was super challenging! Signing up for the accounts was not difficult; however, setting up the WordPress website was a challenge. Initially, I thought setting up the domain and subdomain was going to be a struggle even though it was step one. But I really like the directions the UMW website provided. The instructions actually made it easier to understand and the subdomain got created in a short amount of time. When I started to create the WordPress website I thought it was not that bad. I liked picking out the templates and customizing it. But then I realized the formatting and organizing was difficult because there was no straightforward method of formatting the website how I wanted it to be laid out. A few years ago, I created a WIX website. Creating the WIX website was far better than creating the WordPress website. WIX had clear instructions and I could format the website how I wanted it to look like. WordPress is making it more difficult than it needs to be. I think if we all created a WIX website it would have been so colorful and creative. Also, I don’t know why, but WordPress just seems so outdated to me and WIX is easy, simple, and modern looking. I am still having trouble trying to get my website exactly how I want it laid out. Hope everything runs smoothly next week.
