[RAMBLES] The Purpose of My Website

I always feel weird bringing up my website. As of writing it, it’s not up, which is the first thing that makes it awkward. The second thing is that I have a hard time describing it and why it’s so important to me. A part of me always hopes they’ll ask for my website URL, while a part of me is glad that they don’t and wishes I never opened my mouth. I am, after all, still on Step 1 of the website process.

What is the purpose of my website?

It is meant to be a one-stop place about me and what I do. Ideally it would be the place people first go to order a commission or to check how my day went or the progress on a story. I want it to be the best place for my fans and for my clients to come to access my work.

It is also meant to be a place where I post whatever I want with very little resistance. It is my website, after all! Sometimes I feel so reluctant to post certain things on other websites (usually artwork) for how I will be judged and the potential comments. I mean, yeah, on my website, I’ll get that too, but I feel like I don’t have to tailor my page to please other people. I can just section off things so that if people don’t want to see them, they can ignore them much easier.

I can’t wait for my website to be up. It’s the first step for promoting what I do. Once it’s up, I will only need to update it every-so-often to let people know what’s going on and keep them interested. I’m hoping for the best, but I am feeling it’s not going to do me any good.

Especially since I don’t have anything to promote…
