take it outside

I've been trying to make a website with a dial-up connection.

Now I am going to throw myself off of something, anything, it's awful.

First, I don't know anything about web design, and I think I've made the wrong choices on how to do it. (Register.com) Here I was thinking I could do it myself and I feel so dumb because obviously I still have no website. I have all these questions but don't have anyone to ask. Should I get some softwear and make it from scratch, due to their templates being really sucky and not anywhere near customizable enough for my liking? I know what I want, I just haven't any idea how to build it. How do I put in the shopping cart feature that I'm paying through the nose for, if I do it myself? (Yep, gonna try to set up an online gallery, optimistic huh?) Should I get rid of that feature? Secondly, I'm not on my own PC, so I don't have my beloved PShop or anything beyond what I've put on a CD. Perhaps the third thing may as well be that the hallway ceiling is leaking in 3 spots just to my left, and I can't think. I know I can do this, I just need someone to point me in the right direction...or advise me on who I should get to build it for me. Website Design for Dummies?

On the bright side, the place I'm housesitting for has a bathtub so large I can soak up to my nose in it. They also have cable. Some sort of cable, because I'm sure they don't have high speed anything up here. Not that I watch it, because I'm sitting here watching things load, but at least I could if I wanted to. Maybe I'll order up some XXX to comfort me while I wait for merciful relief.

Also I may have a short employment contract "somewhere else" coming up. No one will be more dissapointed than me if this one falls through.

    Hi Andrea,

    Have you tried SiteKreator? It's very easy to use. Take a look at the templates there and let me know what kind of design you are looking for. My email is wal.maggie [at] gmail.com
