Way back in 1998 when I bought my first computer, long before the days of blogs, my son taught me html and how to make a webpage. I titled it Hickory Haven since I live in a rural community called Hickory Valley. I started out with a bio and moved on to my flowers, my pond (which he and I built), and eventually, my travels, including our unforgettable Australia trip in 2000. It now has 25-30 pages, lots of photos, and a couple of slideshow/photo albums. My only regret is that the earliest pages include photos taken before I owned a digital camera. Recently I added a page telling about my Etsy shop, and last night I included a blurb about my team, Etsy Project Embrace or TEAMEPE.
Now that I'm a blogger and have discovered the ease of an html editor which does most of the work for you, I wonder at all the effort it took to complete these pages. Looking back, though, I feel an immense sense of accomplishment, far greater than that I feel when google helps me add a new post to my blog.
