It’s been about ten years since last time I had my own website. It was a lot easier back then, since it was actually a cadged corner of someone else’s and I didn’t have to do anything. Nowadays it’s amazing the amount of stuff you have to know just to be able to ASK for help with websites. Looking for solutions to even “beginner” problems on the Internet is like that episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm where Larry David is trying to get people who help him change a car tyre. Hopeless.
Apparently there is now a lucrative cottage industry in the construction of websites and social media for creative types, but as none of the creative folks I know have any money, and none of the folks I know with money are creative, I’m not sure quite how this has come about. Needless to say, I don’t have two thousand pounds to spend on this (or anything), so for the foreseeable future please enjoy this shoddy approximation of what I’d like you to think is actually happening.
