Spurred to Action: Buying Maid Appleton

The story of how Maid Appleton came to be has already been explained. What few people know is how the site came to be.

After the juice was loose and I continued traveling, I wanted to make the project more permanent. I thought of making a website although I had no idea how to make one.

When I visited websites I liked, I would right-click and select “View page source” to see how the site was built. I’d then copy/paste that code and modify it to make my own website. Needless to say it was a very tedious process, but I learned a lot.

Now that I knew how to build a website, I needed to buy one. I had no idea how to do that and I kept putting it off, figuring the price would be cost-prohibitive.

Research proved that it wasn’t all that difficult, but I still wasn’t sure if I wanted to do it or of the time commitment or any number of other variables.

Then, one night I had a dream. I was talking with a leader from church and a group of people when they started inquiring what everyone had done that weekend. People named the various things and when it got to him he said “I bought a website”. That piqued my curiosity since I was was wanting to do the same thing. I asked him what the url was and he said “MaidAppleton.com”.

My heart sank and I woke up panicked. I felt like if I didn’t buy the site then obviously someone else would, so I got out of bed, logged onto my computer, and bought the domain name.

With that done, I had forced myself to put it together. I started the process. Now I just needed a way to release it to the world in a creative way.
