Well it was www.MissAriPhotography.com. Then it was www.MissAriPhotography.biz. Finally it is www.TheMissAriPhotos.com...
I definitely did NOT go to college to build websites, but I'm proud to say I now understand the art. Back in December, I employed a fellow church member to build my new site. My .com was working for me, but I didn't think it did me justice. He promised that he could make something better happen and for a reasonable price of $500.
Each week I inquired about his progress. I asked what he needed of me, as far as passwords, photos, MONEY. He continued with his technical language - he kept talking in circles.
Finally, in mid March, he was ready to stop giving me the runaround. I asked once more "How much is this going to cost me?"
His response: "It should be around $1500."
Needless to say, I was a bit taken by his response. I won't say I was PISSED, because I was after all in the church house. That day, I decided if I wanted the job done - I would have to do it myself.
After consulting several web designers, graphic friends, etc. I discovered that a job of this sort should NOT exceed $500. I was willing to pay for the service and to relinquish all design decisions to the professional, but the professional was missing.
It was NOT easy, and perhaps he could have done a better job - but I have it done. It feels good to learn something new. I hope that once I'm done perfecting my new site that YOU will enjoy visiting and inquiring about your photo opportunities!!
