The Making of the Amara Charles Website
The Story Behind Our Website
I will not say it was an easy process, nor that I liked every bit of creating this new site, but I will say, I am absolutely thrilled by the possibilities of what this baby can do.
The best part? Finally, women-friendly technology! I get to change my mind a hundred times a day. (I am so happy). YAY wordpress.
Choosing Belinda Duffy
Okay, choosing a web designer is not marriage, but it’s close. Finding the one to hold (or pull) your hand through the daunting downloads of information and decisions has to be done with the right kind of person.
For me and for most, making a website is an incredibly intimate affair; it dredges up your past failures and it activates every doubt, fear and insecurity you’ve got.
You get to take a deep scan over everything in your life, figure out what it is you are up to, express it to a stranger and then hope they ‘get’ you better than you get yourself. Needless to say, I went through a few ‘relationships’ before I found Belinda Duffy…
She lives in New Zealand. The first thing I did was send her a ton of my stuff, to see if she was interested. Turns out, I was quite different than her other clients.
One of our first (of thousands) of emails
“For me this sentence summed it up in your book “Orgasms are given to us for two reasons; they allow us to feel pleasure and help us to gain knowledge of who we truly are”.
I have never thought of sex as being ‘a channel’ to open up, have fun and express who I really am and feel uninhibited to do so. I always thought sexuality was simply whether you were straight, gay or lesbian… Not how you think, express and act ‘sexually’ – interesting eh?
Besides liking her artistic flair for sophisticated elegance, I loved the way she lunged into the project. She scoured over hundreds of related sites and came up with the conclusion: ‘We can do better.’
Having designed sites for relatively big corporate companies, she knew nothing about the world of Tantra or Spiritual Sexuality, and she certainly never heard of White Tigress or Quodoushka.
I thought ‘perfect’. She’s the one.
When I hired her I said. “I want you to take us into another dimension of who we are, and I am confident, somehow, you are going to come up with the way to do this so that the mystical, poetic, esoteric side is not gone and hidden”
Thus began our mutual education – mine in the wonderful world of web tech – hers in the wonderful world of spiritual sexuality. As the site launches, our relationship continues to be a fascinating, joyous friendship.
p.s. This is only the beginning. We have tons of new articles, education, videos and products just itching to get posted.
What do you think of the site?
The future of this site all depends on what you say.
