Of course, I hurriedly tapped in my website address, www.jdfwriting.com, and he was right: my website had completely disappeared! I logged in to Moonfruit, which I had used to design my website, and was greeted with the message: 'You currently have no websites'. I tried and tried to recover it but after contacting customer services I was informed I hadn't logged into my account for a certain period and therefore my website had been removed. Despite my pleas for it to be recovered this - apparently - wasn't possible.
I considered setting up another website on Moonfruit but then I discovered they had introduced new fees so I decided to shop around - and ended up on Weebly! I have to say that so far I really like it. It means using a Weebly website address but I've managed to set up my www.jdfwriting.com account so it forwards to this one (believe me, that was quite an achievement for me as technology is not my thing). The site was relatively easy to create (a must for me) and seems to be easy to update and amend.
I'm determined this website will last me longer than my previous ones (yes, I've had a few). I hope you like it!
