My boyfriend has designed a website for me using a CMS template. You can see it here www.fionacoles.com/new. (note: make sure you do the /new...ignore fionacoles.com). I am happy with the site and love the simplicity but need the site to have a blog function (on the home page).
I have seen that there are html templates available that are 'blog style' but these are many and on an initial search we could not find a suitable template. In the interest of time and since my boyfriend is not familiar with this aspect of webdesign we are posting this job here.
I am aware that I could simply put the website onto Wordpress and use a wordpress template - however I used to have a wordpress site and had problems with loading times (the site was very slow to load). Since this is a business site I need it to be efficient in that regard, hence going over to html.
The end product I would like to end up with after completion of this job is a website (as close as possible in design to the one I have now) but with a functioning blog page on the home page that I can update (please also could you advise how I would do this (dreamweaver?)
If you need any more clarification please let me know!
