Joomla is cool!

Joomla is cool!

I started playing with Joomla, a content management system, and I am addicted.   I love learning new technology and this is so flexible and allows you to create a really nice looking site in a short while.  

I am currently working on redesigning DigiScrapInfo.   It originally was create piece-meal fashion.  At first we only need a blog and forum.  Then we needed this or that.  And it kind of just grew and grew.   Well, I am revisiting it and turning it into one cohesive site.  And enjoying the fun and challenge of it.    I am still working on graphics and filling in the content, but here’s a sneak peak…

I also helped a friend out and her site when live on June 1.   I helped behind the scenes to setup a Joomla website for her, (taught her Joomla management) and created this site for her.   DigitalScrappingStudio   Here’s a image of it:

    Heidi. I’m about to get started with Joomla, Where did you decide to host your sites. I’ve been looking at some but am curious what you decided.

    PS. Nice work!

    Hi Cathy,

    I initially chose GoDaddy. It had cheap inexpensive hosting packages and at the time that was what I was looking for. Now that my websites are supporting themselves, I wish I would have chose a different host. I don’t like GoDaddy because you only FTP access. I have worked on websites hosted by bluehost and I feel they are more up-to-date and have a better admin panel than GoDaddy. There are so many others. I investigated a couple of other hostings sites. Usually I go read in the hosts forum if users seem to be relatively happy — obviously you always have that unhappy few.

    Heidi
