When I bought my domain in September of 2010, I didn't think I'd be spending as much time on it as I have. I had basic experience with html from my Xanga days and was completely new to the idea of hosting, building a website, and CSS coding.
Ultimately, I felt using Weebly's website builder was the best fit for my needs (read: it was, and is, the most affordable option). There are a lot of fancy transitions and effects I've seen on other hosts that I'd love to have, but at this point, I'm staying put.
After experimenting with themes and learning CSS through trial and error, I think I'm set with the layout you're seeing now. I know it's still by and large a simple layout with a lot of the same content, but it's new and it's about time.
I've also decided to start using the local blog feature to maximize branding—and because I never figured out how to format the "BLOG" menu item so it would open a new tab rather than load my Blogger over whatever page was currently being browsed. I'll still mirror the posts there as it seems to have a higher search rank at the moment.
Also, if it isn't readily apparent, I'm launching my new logo! It took several drafts and Illustrator tutorials to get it to where it is, but I'm pretty satisfied with it and even have a wedding logo to introduce once those projects start coming in. Meanwhile, I'll leave one of the logo drafts I kind of went overboard on with the detail but ended up being my first gif ever!
