I'm interested in surfing Homestead sites to see what kinds of things people have done with this platform.  If you're up for sharing, post your URL in a comment!

I operate several local news websites on the platform.  The flagship is www.durandnow.com.

I use Desktop Sitebuilder.  Do you?

I used to use the desktop builder and swore you'd have to pry it from my cold dead fingers especially when SB+ came out. But I am now switching over to the 3rd generation Homestead Websitebuilder as it gives a fresh look to the sites and while there is a learning curve, it's a nice program once you get the hang of it. Have you explored it yet Joshua?

This client site is the first one I built using the new builder. http://www.saintmarysmission.org/  I've learned a lot since then and am in the process of updating 3 more client sites - I learn something with each experience!  :)

I like the nice clean look of the new responsive site. Tools to create a unique are not the same as SB+. I am trying to develop my site using the new program but am struggling. The new software forces me to conform. I'm afraid all of the sites will end up looking the same. My site www.napasewandvac.com is recognizably unique. My customer have confirmed that they like my site and it's quirky different appearance. I hate to give it up, especially after all of the hard work.

I've been frustrated and haven't studied for awhile. When I resume, I can get specific. I'm not there yet. You'll be the first to know. Thanks Susan.

Sure and I'll be happy to help if I can once you get going again.
