My version of opening Pandora's box is this website. I didn't know what I was getting into and it's certainly had unexpected consequences but it's been great.
Here's how it came about:
I love woodworking, but marketing isn't my strong suit. However, even I realized that I needed a website.
When I was looking for a web host I wasn't thinking about making money online. My goal was to have a place for people to find me and to be able to see my work. Then I found
Site Build It.
SBI! is a great program.
It allows me to go with my passion, to make the website a goal in itself, rather than an after-thought. SBI! does all the computer work for me. I don't know how to find keywords or get listed on search engines. I don't care about marketing, or finding sites to link with. I just want to talk about woodworking.
SBI! does all the work for me. Solo Build It! provides step by step videos to help with everything from brainstorming to setting up a navigation bar. It makes it easy to build web pages and the community that comes along with the program is incredible.
I've only been working on this website for a few months now, and I'm having so much fun I (almost) don't care if it doesn't make a penny. That's not to say it's easy. It's going to take time and energy to reach the point I'm now aiming for.
But the thing is - I'm loving it!
SBI! may not be for everyone, but it's great for me. If you like your topic its a great way to earn a bit extra while exploring something you love.
