I love the idea of having my own website, and BYU offers a free web hosting service to students and faculty, so I jumped right in. I started on this small blog site, but didn’t get very far before graduating. Now I’m no longer a student, so I pay a small fee to keep my domain name. I just can’t risk some impostor snatching it up and charging me to buy it back, a highly unlikely scenario but possible nonetheless.
I recently took on the responsibility of managing my lab’s website. The problem is I have no experience designing websites, besides this of course. I’m flying by the seat of my pants here. I plan to use this site as a test bed for web design techniques before trying them out on the lab’s site. Wish me luck; I’ll need it!
