It's a slow week here for me in the blogger world. I have been at a total loss for inspiration (and remain so this morning). I have been trying to teach myself how to design a website with Microsoft Front Page (much harder than I thought). I am envious of designers of those slick, polished websites who can whip out a great looking and functional site with ease. No one where I work is capable of designing a website and we're not going to pay someone to do it but I keep hearing things like "what is our website address?", "when are we going to get a website?", "why don't we have a website?", or my personal favorites "our website looks like crap" or "our website is broken". The truth of the matter is that I only put up a one page informational paragraph with one poorly done photo on our site to basically just convey the message that "WE ARE HERE!" You see, I am Contract Sales Manager for a distributor of building products such as doors, frames, hardware, bath accessories, and many, many more items. We sell to homeowners, homebuilders, and general contractors. We assist architects with designs and specifications and write hardware specifications as well. All this doesn't really leave time for learning FrontPage or designing slick webs but I am going to do it anyway. I am a glutton for punishment. What can I say?
On a more personal note, the water heater was out this morning. I re-lit it and now sit writing this blog entry while waiting for the water to get hot. Why do these things always happen at this time of year? Seems like bad luck seems to hang out just outside my door. Hope that I can put off calling the plumber of visiting the water heater department at Home Depot until after Christmas!
