Well, actually, I found quite a few. Of course,back then there weren’t nearly as many options on the fiber optic highway as there are today…so myselection was a bit limited when compared to today’s market.

No. Remember I was inexperiencedand soon learned that not all site builders are alike. My first attempt was definitely with a stone ageproduct in a modern day world.

While this company offered several affordable services and qualityproducts, their easy website builder wasn’t one of them.I began my search again.
