Yesterday was a day I hope to never have to maneuver through ever again. It was website hell like I have never experienced.
I have been moving my websites over to Wordpress sites. From all I have been hearing Wordpress is the way to go for better presence, better SEO better everything. My original website was a template site and though I loved it and it was easy and fun to update and change it was producing very few leads if any. Made no difference how much I marketed it just remained a beautiful static website with no leads. So last year I started experimenting with new sites.
Now for the record I am not a Wordpress junkie. I find it overwhelming and confusing and not easy or fun to play with. With that said I chose two companies that specialize in Wordpress real estate websites to get me up and running.
It has been challenging to say the least. On one the IDX platform is the worst out there I have ever seen and trying to get that corrected has been next to impossible. The other has a much better IDX site but does not offer some of the social media platforms that make the other one so appealing. So I decided to reverse the domain names on the two sites and as of today neither site is available on the web. Nope, nada, not at all.
I guess its an improvement though from earlier in the day when I found my main published email had not been working for a few days. At least that is up and running correctly now. But alas my websites have not and will not be unless I figure out how to make them visible this weekend.
I am working on it but in the meantime I have appointments to attend to and places to be so it will be a hit and miss opportunity through the weekend.
Funny how naked I feel and withdrawn from the cyber space world. I have worked so hard to make my presence known and now, nothing.
I am looking for this weekend to move along quickly so that I can hopefully be back up and running on Monday. In the meantime...
