Baking a Website

I’m so pleased to say I have finally completed my new website! It has taken 9 months as I have had to fit it into quite a hectic scheduel.  I used to be a Graphic Designer and I designed my last website over 3 years ago. It had got really dated and I wanted a much fresher modern look. I’d never done web design before I made my last one and I can tell you it’s a lot different from baking! I’ve made things up as I went along and Google has been a lifesaver. I’ve worked on the website since October, as even the small things have taken me triple the time to work out. In hindsight, I think my time would have been better spent elsewhere and I should have just paid someone to do it, but I got in too deep! I’m also a bit of a control freak and love the fact that I have eveything how I want it (apart from a couple of small tweaks I’m still working out how to do).

Here are a couple of screen shots of the last website:

Although I’m quite fond of the old design for nostalgic reasons, I’m pretty sure I’ve made the right decision to give it a overhaul. If you have time to have a quick look and let me know what you think I would really appeciate it (and if you find any mistakes or have any suggestions that would be great!). It would be great to hear if anyone else has had similar expeiences of taking on things that you probably shouldn’t!

Here is the new sight: “Baked Cupcakery: http://www.bakedcupcakery.co.uk”;

I don’t know what I’ll do with all my spare time now… maybe bake a cake!
