I’m cracking up over that title. It’s the generic one that Word Press uses on its themes and when I saw it I said it out loud (try it right now, I dare you) and it just sounded funny to me, so of course I had to keep it for my (drum roll…) First Official Blog post on my Personal Website. Woohoo! It’s been two months in the making – yes, I’ve been a major slacker as far as giving the world a quick hello – well now you have it!
How does one get the idea to start a personal website you may ask? Well about two months ago I was talking to Toby about domain names and somehow justjyll.com came up. Toby is a Computer Geek and Businessman Galore. He runs a family Real Estate office out of Marysville, Barnett Associates, and also his own consulting firm, TW Resource Group. That means he’s a man in the Know! Toby mentioned that the domain name was now available. I was surprised to hear this, last I knew the site was utilized by someone who did knitting (if I recall correctly). So, we went to the site and sure enough, it was available! I got all giddy! I couldn’t stop talking about it and how I needed to buy that domain name for myself. The next day I surprised both of us and did!! I not only bought the name but I paid for my site to be hosted! Talk about going big! Toby was impressed by my decisiveness and we immediately started discussing my site and he spent some time right then and there putting it together – thanks Tob!
As I mentioned, the site hasn’t exactly been a daily focus for me. I’m honestly not sure what all I’m going to do with it. While it is very exciting, it is also a little bit overwhelming – for some reason, I think it is easier to play with and manage a Myspace rather than a personal website. What is up with that thinking?? I know, pure crazy talk! I will remedy that with this first blog!
