I built my own website. I built my own website. What, I built my own website?
Some of you may think that I am overreacting, but honestly, this is a big deal for me. There is nothing techy about me other than the fact that I am married to an engineer.
Trying to find a good web designer was similar to the many encounters and experiences I’ve had at car repair shops. They are all so skilled at finding car issues I didn’t know existed, but even more skilled at convincing me that I can no longer avoid it.
It was a rather frustrating experience contacting all these companies who claim to be the “one stop shop” and end up charging you an arm and a leg. Good thing some offer 30-day free trial versions. None of them really worked for my needs. Then I found Coursecats. I just can’t thank Coursecats enough for giving me the most frustrating customer experience of my life. While Coursecats was switching my hosting, they cut off my e-mail for A WHOLE WEEK and did NOTHING to fix it. Between, they don’t provide you with a phone number, so you basically have to wait for them to send you one (may be two, if you are lucky) incomplete e-mail(s) per day to your alternate e-mail address. I never felt so helpless in my entire life. But thank you Coursecats for the nightmare because I learnt to take charge of my online presence.
On this International Women’s Day, I can’t help but express how liberated, strong, and secure I feel. But I also can’t stop pondering on gender disparity in the tech world. Throughout my frustrating tech journey, I spoke to one, may be two women and they too were on the admin side.
Hey! I built my website and my courses will be online soon.
