My First Business Website

UPDATE, 7/25/2006, 7:10PM: It’s ALL DONE — including the “Prints” section.  Woo-boy, that’s a lot of Paypal buttons.  So, go over there and BUY STUFF!  WOO-HOO!!!

Well, actually, it’s not mine — it’s Autumn Jackson’s, who blogs over at Janus Gate. But she’s been needing somebody to put together her art store website for awhile now, and since December 2005, I’ve been designing the thing with old-fashioned hand-inking and scanning for the image menus, iPhoto Plus 4 and even MSPaint for image manipulation, and MS Frontpage for everything else. I’ve picked up some basic HTML along the way — having my own Geocities website and posting on blogs certainly helped with the HTML learning curve enough — that I put in the Paypal shopping cart buttons with no hassle. Although the “Prints” section is still under construction (some final consultation with Miz Jackson), I figured it wasn’t enough to hold up the debut of the site. And so — ISQUIBIBBLE’S is live as of today, 4:30am.

And, yes, I can be very productive when I can’t get to sleep, especially when I’m in a project that I want to get done. 🙂

If single-mothering were a paid job, I'd be rich. However, it doesn't, so I write (which doesn't pay the bills) and teach (which does). I'm overly-educated in the liberal arts, but that doesn't hinder my ability to be pragmatic and realistic. YAY.

    I took the pictures for the site and I made sure that the images were good enough that you could see what you were buying but weren’t good enough so that you could blow them up without pixilating the hell out of them. 🙂

    If it comes to it though, I might watermark them.

    Well done, LQ! You might put watermarks over the images, though, to reduce the risk of illegal copying. A lady I buy old holy car images from has finally gone to that.
