Webmastering Makes My Brain Hurt

Ahhhh. That's a sigh of relief that I will no longer go to sleep dreaming web-site-building dreams each night.

Why? Because—yay!—I've finished my cabinetmaker spouse's web site:

Master Cabinetworks, Inc.


I can't take credit for the site's lovely design and architecture; that was done by a professional, the same one who revamped my business site a few years ago and who writes her own code and enjoys "every exasperating step of the way." But I wrote the code for the six newest project subpages (by copying and pasting other subpages' code and editing it), and I wrote all of the text for every page and subpage on the site. I even created a "404 page not found" page for when errors happen. And I've registered the site with Google, Yahoo, and DMOZ so that search engines can index the site's pages.

Ye can teach an editor new tricks, such as XHTML and CSS. But och, me brain aches. Maybe those are just growing pains.

Exactly! It's like when you start exercising, and your abs hurt.

Congratulations to both of you!

I did it the easy way--I used TypePad to build my organization's website. Everyone loves it, and it's so much easier to update than the Dreamweaver version.

In fact, that's what I need to do right now, so I'll make this short.

But the hardest part was all the behind the scenes stuff, getting the CNAME propagated and all that nonsense. I finally had to get some help with that part.
