Change is good ... hopefully
Posted on April 24 2018
When I decided to dye yarn and sell online one of my tenets was that I would have a professional looking website. After all, I was a professional yarn dyer (as opposed to an unprofessional one!). But of course I didn't want to spend big bucks to hire a consultant. So I set out to learn Wordpress and set up my website myself. I was the photographer and website designer all in one. My website was just barebones, but it was inexpensive to maintain because I only had to pay the e-commerce host if something actually sold. I wasn't sure I would actually sell anything, so paying monthly didn't make sense to me. (I am a retired Certified Public Accountant and can't help analyzing everything in a business sense).
Well it looks like Amanda Hope Yarn is big enough to have a real website. So now I've set up this new website myself ... again... so there may be a few bugs. I wanted the user to be able to sort the yarn based on colors, or speckles, or neutrals, or whatever. I wanted to be able to offer multiple pictures of the yarn (but I haven't yet). So check out what I've done, and let me know if you find any bugs or have any suggestions to improve it. A not so public email to me is most appreciated. (Go to the Contact page) I'm not one who relishes a lot of comments below my blog letting me know what improvement you would suggest. As the oldest child, I'm a bit Type A and don't take well to public criticism.
Stay tuned for more updates to the website as well as more blog posts. And don't forget to follow me on facebook and Instagram and post your projects to #amandahopeyarn.
