How I Created This Web Site

I am asked so often to explain how I created this web site that I've decided to tell my story about it.

Looking back now, I find it hard to remember a time when web building wasn't part of my life. It feels so comfortable that nowadays it's just like a second skin. In fact the whole idea of writing, building and creating web sites fits me like a glove. However, it wasn't something I came to easily though. It took some pretty constant persuasion!

To begin with, when my daughter, Carmen, introduced me to the idea of web site building by using a process called Site Build It, or SBI for short, I have to say I laughed at her!
Who, me? What makes you think I could do that? And I promptly forgot about it!

But Carmen continued to enthusiastically promote the idea and so eventually I asked a trusted 'computer' friend to check out this 'SBI thing' and get back to me with her ideas on it. I was somewhat surprised when she told me she could only find amazingly positive reviews about it.

Then Carmen gifted me my web site for Christmas! What could I say?
Within a week I was solidly hooked and SBI and I have been 'in a relationship' ever since!

A sound relationship is made up of several valuable components and my relationship with SBI - in every sense of the word! - addresses my needs wonderfully.

Site Build It caters for my passion for :
  • Writing
  • Learning
  • Travelling
  • Computing
  • Working from home
  • Family and parenting

So, how does it do that?

Well, with SBI, these passions all come together.

  • It's a wonderful teaching tool
  • Caters for all levels of computer awareness, beginners to advanced
  • Enables me to write
  • Utilises my skills as a parent educator
  • Provides all the support and mentoring I need
  • Makes my business profitable, as I can work from my home in New Zealand or from anywhere else around the globe!

With the all-in-one process, tools, and guidance I moved towards success quickly and easily. A great relationship!

Run Your Own Business

The process is simplified to such a degree that success (i.e., profits, not the mere presence of a Web site) is achievable even for a beginner like me. SBI! really has changed my life. To begin with I thought it would be just about sharing my knowledge with others - but today it is about running my own business!

It hadn't occurred to me that I would be able to get a business up and running on a website just by doing what I love! But SBI! removes the technical barriers so that many functions are completely automated.

I found I didn't need to know anything upfront about building a Web site in order to succeed. The tedious, "under-the-hood" stuff is handled automatically so I could focus on other important business-building activities.

Mentoring, Help and Support

Mentoring and support is an important concept to me, so it was great to find these are provided with the Action Guide. It presents a step-by-step process in both written and video formats. All I had to do was follow it. Really! The most successful SBI! owners say "all they did was follow the Guide." They don't get sidetracked, or have to guess at what to do next. Same with me! SBI!'s guided approach helps me reach my goals. If you like a 'systems' approach it's excellent, and if, as a work from home parent, your time is precious, the action guide keeps you easily on task. It works well for many different learning styles too and has become my constant point of reference - great bedtime reading!

Continuous mentoring via the Action Guide and online help is always available. I feel carefully guided every step of the way, which makes success that much more do-able. The SBI! private forums provide friendly, helpful support from other Site Build It! users. Help is available from folks who are in the same place as me. The forums are a place where support is given freely by those who have trodden the path just as I am now. And I love the motto - if you've been helped, pay it forward.

The wonderful encouragement, support and teaching of SBI makes great website building not only possible but immensely enjoyable too. Come and meet some of the wonderful people who have made their way with SBI - click on the picture to take a video tour of their individual stories. I love this!

Choosing the Concept and Design

Choosing the best site concept is not always as obvious as you might think. As a proud grandmother to wee Jamie, I believe it was his joyous presence in our lives that gave me the added impetus to share my experiences as a parenting educator.

I guess you could say that Consistent Parenting grew out of my delight in being a grandmother and Jamie's delicious photos help to bring the website alive.

SBI's Brainstorm It! and Niche Choose It! showed me the best path for my particular business, revealed some surprises, and helped me make the right choice. Have a look at how it works:

Find Your Niche

If you're wondering about how you make choices such as colour and design, well, when it's time to create your site's Look & Feel, SBI! provides fully customizable, easy-to-use templates. You can choose and create a professional-looking presentation, even if you have no design skills. And if you're a designer, you can even create and upload your own. This page shows a range of styles.

Choosing Your Web Name and Web Host

SBI! includes domain name analysis, optimization, and registration. I had thought this would be the hardest part, but in fact it is really exciting,simply laid out, and easy to understand. Fast, reliable, state-of-the-Net Web site hosting is all included with SBI!. I didn't have to worry about choosing the right "hosting" features (size, capacity, etc.) as its all included.

Being able to monitor my web site progress through reliable stats is one of the rewards I really enjoy. Traffic Stats and Click Analysis help me to understand what my visitors like. Understanding them helps me know what to write about, which in turn leads to more and more business.

Here's how I feel today about my web site relationship with Site Build It....we've come a long way together and it's changed my life! It really has.

Building this site has been a creative journey for me. With Site Build It's reliable support and amazing learning tools, I have become passionate about building a website business that makes it possible for me to not only work from home in New Zealand, but also in other countries when I am travelling.
