SHINY NEW WEBSITE So what do you do during yet another lockdown? The house got completely redecorated during lockdown number one, the garage and loft are de-cluttered and we’ve done so many boxed sets the sofas have permanent dents!!
In our naivety we decided to rebuild and redesign the website…I mean how hard can it be? I built it 8 years ago when I started the business so some of that must have retained inside my sponge of a brain?
Turns out that NO. What knowledge I had managed to retain was completely useless as EVERYTHING has changed. The world and websites have moved on in leaps and bounds while I was out fishing.
So we started from scratch learning as we went. Bev took on the SEO writing, while I relearnt everything I had forgotten about WordPress, as well as learning about the new guy on the block Elementor, all the various plug-ins and a little coding on the side.
Three weeks later we have what we think is a pretty cool looking website, we speed test it with Google and ……..red warning flags everywhere and a speed of 30%. Could our spirits have been any lower?? And so follows another 10 days of learning about how to speed up a site (with a couple of days out fishing in between of course)
And finally the miraculous day comes….a speed test with Google gives us 100%!! And 93% on mobile!! The site was ready…if only we were allowed to have a party!!!!
Anyway have a look round the site & see what you think. Let us know on Facebook or Instagram what you do and don’t like about it…always open to suggestions. And maybe you’ll all be invited to that party one day in the distant future ……think I remember what having a party was like……..
