Welcome to the new cyberspace home of the OBX Beach Bum. With all the stuff of the past year, building this site became less and less a priority as we maneuvered our way through the uncertainty. With all of our plans getting put on hold, we really didn’t know if we were going to be able to continue.
But at the end of the year we moved into a new rental home in South Nags Head and began what felt like a new adventure. That seemed like just the right time to get busy with this new site and make it a priority.
I’ve decided to change how I interact with social media in the future. And eventually this will be where all my posts to social media will originate. I won’t be completely absent from the social networks, but I am weaning my presence there and concentrating on developing an audience here on my own website.
Well, like most things lately, it turned out to be more complicated than I imagined. Sometimes it’s something very simple that for whatever reason I just couldn’t grasp and so it’s taken much longer than I thought it would.
The first snag was finding the right ecommerce software to sell my OBX Photography prints. After a lot of trials, I discovered that the software for my old site had the best shopping cart, but it wasn’t designed to do blog posting, so I’ve had to build two sites at the same time in order to sell my prints.
It’s gonna be slow going while I integrate both sites, but the process has begun and I’ll be posting older vault content as time permits.
Thank you for stopping by and I hope you’ll sign up to receive a weekly notice of posts made so you won’t miss a thing.
