Read on for news about Divi’s Black Friday sale. I use it, and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to play at building webspaces.
I had a “nerdy” hobby in college back in the 90’s. I was a fanatic about the World Wide Web. With Netscape Communicator, I was able to compose a webpage for myself, kind of a collection of odd bookmarks. Then I made some education resources (my major). One of them was even published in a collection of must-see web resources that circulated around academia.
But that’s not all – I created one of the most popular (at the time) fan resources for my favorite two TV series of the time: Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, and Xena: Warrior Princess.
Why stop there? Blogging was a new thing. After concluding that Communicator was too clunky for the task and becoming a fan of the WYSIWYG power of Adobe Pagemill, I decided to take the plunge and hop on the Radio Userland bandwagon. Yes, it took a lot more technical chops to set it up, but once you did, it was easier to manage a blog with. After Radio Userland went under, I moved to WordPress, the clear leader at the time. But for some reason, blogging grew tedious.
Half of the fun. in hindsight, was the design process. I liked putting an artistic stamp on my websites. WordPress has so many themes available, but customizing from there can be quite prohibitive for a pure hobbyist with limited time to learn coding.
Then I discovered Divi. Now I love having websites again! I play and create in my own web playground of about 10 distinct sites now. When I’m not writing content, I’m making them all prettier and easier to navigate. Divi makes the later tasks a joy.
I encourage you to try it out. Black Friday is the best chance to jump onboard, and their 2020 sale is packed with prizes and perks. Speaking of chances, full disclosure: I have a chance to win a prize from Elegant Themes, makers of my beloved Divi for WordPress, for their Black Friday promotion.
