How Do Websites Work? Probably Not Like This

Technology: not my best subject. You know how people go on about how some people are early adapters? Well, I’m the opposite. I had a physical keyboard on my phone until 2013, my voicemail is still the default message, and until a month ago I put two spaces after every period.

In a word: if it’s not broke, I don’t fix it. Total Luddite.

Yet here I am, building a website via much trial and failure. Some of us are born to surf the web (wow, that’s a phrase I haven’t heard in a while), some of us were born to piggie-back off those who can figure out where the backslash key is.

And yet.

I say these things, but I still know technology far better than my two-fingered-typist father, can navigate the internet better than my uses-computers-for-a-living brother, easily baffle my how-does-Twitter-work-exactly mother with a twitch of my fingers. All things are relative, I suppose.

So there you have it. My website is not very functional… but only compared to, say, the websites of people who know what GIF stands for, and the entire argument of how to pronounce it. Compared to the flashing geosites of yesteryear, I’m already light-years ahead, and if that isn’t something to be proud of, well.

Not well anything, just well.

  1. Functionality of websites is greatly assisted by things like wordpress where you don’t have to know the first thing about html in order to be able to put together a functioning interweb presence.
