I also design the website for my offline business
, and while I get a fair number of very positive comments, I also get comments that it's not "advanced" enough and that I should hire someone. I did talk to a local web designer, but was put off by the pricing.
Especially since the resulting site was essentially going to be static. I'd have to pay again any time I wanted to update the site. They did offer to make a Wordpress site, which presumably I could learn how to alter.
Wordpress, however, to me is entirely non-intuitive. I have tried unsuccessfully a couple times to create a site with the software. In the end, I would up buying RapidWeaver, which is what I use to create this and all my sites (yes, I have more than two).
I had to pay for this software, but it's a lot more intuitive than Wordpress. I don't have all the bells and whistles on this (or any) site, but I'm not a huge fan of the bells and whistles.
So many sites use pop-ups— which I hate, and I know I'm not alone!— and other "high end" devices that to me actually detract from the experience. Perhaps I'm showing my age, because to me websites (with the exception of Youtube) are still for reading.
