slogging through the website

In between my sewing moments today (yay- I am making progress on one piece) and whatever else I was doing, I worked on revamping my website. Now I know why they pay the big bucks to the professionals! So far, I have redone two pages: the front and one gallery page. And in response to the whining (not unjustified, I might say) of two people last week, I have put up the dreaded PRICES -- along with a link to Paypal (even though it doesn't say so). Redoing is long overdue. I am taking a lot of pieces off so I can rotate them, and I am reorganizing my work by some other random method than the previous one. I have only one gallery page up, but that's enough for today. If you want to take a look, go here. And let me know what you think. Does it work? Do the links work? thanks.

Good job, Rayna! It is a pain to have to maintain our websites, but I think it's worth it to let viewers see our work! I have had buyers from all over the country based on what they saw on my web, so I do try to keep it up... price we have to pay, right?

I didn't check the links, but the page looks great. Your work is awesome, Rayna.

Rayna said...

Thanks, everyone. Every day I'll work on it a bit more till it finally gets there...

Site looks good- very simple to navigate and the black background really makes your work sparkle. I don't know that posting the prices was a neccessity- your work is worth ten times what you listed it at.

Rayna said...

Ha ha - Miles, you are so right. But there wouldn't be many buyers at ten times the prices, would there be?
On the other hand, which one would you like to pay me 10x over for? I'll gladly entertain all offers - LOL.

Another issue we all struggle with...
maybe I'll post about it one of these days.

Website looks great Rayna and the links work!
I enjoy reading your blog.

I couldn't get the Ozarks guild link to come up. Otherwise, it's looking good. I think the black background suits your work.

Rayna, two suggestions...

1. Can you put a link to your website home page at the top of your blog sidebar? I don't see any easy way to get to your website other than when you post a link...

2. The gallery page is great. Are you going to add a click for larger size to those smaller photos? Would be nice to see detail.
