Having one's own website is imperative in today's digital world. However, the frustration of building one's own website is tangible even for those that are internet & technology savvy. In my attempts to break away from zenfolio (not that there is anything wrong with zenfolio, I greater appreciate for its efficiencies now that I've tried creating a webpage with wordpress.) My frustration stems from the dichotomy of choice--there are 15 million different ways to create a "professional" looking webpage, each with their advantages and disadvantages. I tried dreamweaver, but holy-hell I'm certainly no coder; I tried Muse and I like it more than dreamweaver; I'm in the middle of attempting wordpress, but it is more like a jigsaw puzzle than I web building tool.
I remember having the same frustrations when learning the ins and outs of Photoshop. Hopefully one day I'll look back upon this post and laugh, though I feel more like screaming at wordpress & elegant themes right now.
