Marvin uses his site to promote himself as a portrait artist and teacher.
Marvin, where did you start?
I had a site for over ten years and have had great success with it. I designed it in Adobe Go-live which no longer is supported by Adobe.
I decided to add a blog. I liked WordPress and chose the Prose theme because it was scalable between platforms and was more flexible with regards to design.
What advice do you have for people who are about to start working on their websites?
Fortunately I found Pamela’s blog and she very generously gave me some much needed technical insight. So, as a thank you, I joined Site Setup Kit, which I found to be very helpful for additional questions I had.
Building my original site was very time consuming and required a lot of research, but I’m very happy the way it turned out and most importantly I have total control over and changes I want to institute.
Anything you’d like to add?
I highly recommend Site Setup Kit. They were life savers.
