After the discussion on the website and use of wordpress v. sitemaker (moonfruit, webeden etc.) I have begun to wonder whether to try and build my own website in wordpress or some other format. As I said before, I am a complete novice though defnitely not afraid to have a go at something new and am not IT-scared Surprised

but, before I start, some advice from some of you:

Do I need to purchase another (temporary) domain name and hosting so as not to lose my existing site while I learn? And if so, how do I do this?

How can I maintain my (admitedly limited) PR when I switch over?

What shoudl I be looking for in my new site?

Is wordpress really that easy to grasp

Mmm what to do? A million dollar question.
Comments made after looking at your website:

Personally I hate flash based websites. I have flash blocked to stop those annoying adverts besides I have read that search engines do not rank flash based web sites well. The second point we would also like to hear others opinion on too.
But I personally do not understand what you need to change the content is well written and presented. So if you were to rewrite in .php or .html, etc. formats then change nothing else.

As for testing then make a separate folder and upload the new files to that file..say call it www.yourwebsite.web/test If you use something like Dreamweaver then you can test the website on your own pc.
Hope this helps in some way.
