What’s WIX website builder like these days?
It’s been what, maybe five years since I had an active WIX website. I’ve decided to build a new one for my personal website, here’s how it goes.
1./ Goto WIX.com , yep.
2./ Hmmm this is new, I can choose ADI (what does that stand for) … it means they create the site for me in a few seconds based on a few questions. Actually they create the structures… I press OK let’s try this.
3./ Hmmmm I’m thinking I should’ve gone with the regular WIX builder… this looks too basic and WIX isn’t exactly hard to use.
4./ Yep, binned that, starting again.
5./ Goto WIX.com . Create new site.
6./ Use WIX editor not the ADI thing.
7./ Pick template. Consultant. Look at it. It’s fine. Click edit.
8./ Change text by clicking on it. Done
9./ Change background image. Goto Unsplash.com and choose a cool one.
10./ This would definitely be easier if my laptop wasn’t 5 yeas old. Why is a five year old Mac totally fine, and a five year old PC virtually obsolete?
11./ OK I’m getting there, bit clunky … slow … probably my PC … wondering what exactly is the new website for?
12./ It’s to show my Past, Present, and Future work.
13./ OK this is pretty easy and actually quite fun. Very easy. Good old WIX.
14./ I’ll let you know when it’s finished.
15./ It’s 90% there, in the free mode, needs a few tweaks, then upgrading to include my URL. Basically done though, and to be fair, in the few hours it took, with a few games of Tanks in between, I’ve done a decent job of it.
Wix, for simple websites, built in no time with no cost, you’re pretty good. Pretty good indeed. High praise from a Yorkshireman.
