With the launch of hosted Apostrophe
, all of us at P'unk Ave have been buzzing with excitement. However, I'd like to claim, that I am the MOST excited. Usually in the project manager role around here, I'm the only person with no design or programming experience. I have all these ideas for websites, and no way to execute them without bribing my developer friends with baked goods. Until now.
Last week we released an Etsy Mini slot in Apostrophe. This got me thinking about all my friends who are Etsy sellers, and do not have their own websites. I asked my friend Diane if I could use her Etsy store as an example to build her a website. She sent me her Etsy Mini code, and I took off running.
The cool thing about using Apostrophe is the feeling of control. For example, on the home page there are two different content areas. A banner area for full width content, and the body area for two column content (this is in all the themes). You can make a page that only has content spanning the full width of the page, content with two columns of goodness, or a combination of both.
I chose to start with the Georgia theme. I decided to put her Etsy store front and center in the banner slot. Already I was making a site that looked unique.
