After Thanksgiving, I was playing catch-up with my blog reading, and I came across a post from Greta about her new and improved website. I was inspired! (And I use Weebly, so it made that much more inviting).
Because I was supposed to be doing something else altogether, I thought it would be a good idea to go ahead and explore this new setup that Greta had and see if I could apply it to my own website. Three hours later … here we are.
I liked the
pushy-outy things moving parts on Greta’s sidebar, so in order to have that feature I had to change my basic template, so my website also has a whole new look. It’s much cleaner and easier to navigate, I think.
I only have 4 people on my site right now, but I’m finding out that it’s easier to put their stories on my website than I thought. The only one I have sourced and documented the “new” way is my great grandfather, Louis Phelisa Lanctot. Instead of having a separate link to each source and each source linking to an image, I put each source and image on the same page. It’s one less step, which makes the process go a little faster.
