This was the start of a long learning process. I eventually figured out that you don't need to have everything on the home page. The concept of hidden pages seems obvious once you realize it but it took me too long to grasp the idea. Some days were very frustrating. The worst one was when, somehow or other, I destroyed my home page not once, but three times.
I really thought no one would find my web site but I was wrong. I followed my "hits" with astonishment as they increased, not quickly, but steadily.
While this has sometimes been frustrating, it has also been both interesting and fun.
