Website Goes Live

Today’s been an exiting day for me because the BikeOPs website has finally gone live and I can start trading.

I designed and built the website myself and put to use some coding skills I learnt a while back. In order to have a blog on the site I’ve powered it using the excellent WordPress platform. WordPress has all the tools needed for a blog and it also acts as a content management system (CMS) for the whole site.

I’m sure I’ll find a few glitches in the next few weeks but I’ve tested it extensively on my local PC so not too many I hope. I’m pleased with the overall look and feel of the site and I hope you like it too.

Now I have the blog I’m not too sure how I will use it or how it will develop but no doubt time will tell. I hope to put any interesting local events on the site and perhaps some product reviews, cos I like gadgets! Apart from that, well who knows.

It’s been a long day transferring this site from my desktop PC to my online host and it’s not been entirely straightforward but it all seems to work okay, so far.  I still need to add some internal and external links but that will have to wait until tomorrow.
