Hostel Making Story12

Hi.  I am Hazuki, the owner of THE EVERGREEN HOSTEL.  I’m writing how this hostel was made based on the writings that I had accumulated in the past.


■ October 12th, 2015  Think how to proceed my work through making a website

How can I make a website?  …By myself?


If I make a website by myself, I can save much money.  I’ll be thrilled like laboring and get attached to it because “I made it by myself!”

However, I have poor skill to make it by myself.

So, I have to connect with a person who can make it and get him or her to cooperate.

That’s why I had a meeting with him the other day.


…Actually, I thought that I could make a website by myself and tried to make it by using WordPress.

Talking about the conclusion, I made a tacky website.


I was accustomed to WordPress since I used it when I did public affairs.  It’s easy to update information.  It’s very easy to write a blog and issue a press release.


However, it’s quite difficult to make a format of the website as a preparation.  In terms of architecture, I think it’s the same as basic things like a foundation construction or connecting beams.  Problems are piled up for non-professional person because there are many difficult things in the process of making a website such as a server and a domain.  Still, you can do it if you try.


The temporary website that I made was one of the many templates and it was far from my ideal.  However, the website had sufficient elements so that I could accept reservations via the website.  But do you want to stay at a hostel of a tacky website when you make a special trip abroad?


When I was making a website desperately,

I noticed that I couldn’t make an objective judgment like “I made a website, but it’s tacky.”

I became positive like “It’s tacky, but I made it!”

This positive way of thinking may bring a bad effect.


It’s good to be positive.  However, this is not good.


To start a business by myself means that I have to be responsible for everything.

So, I think it’s important to be strict with myself.


“I don’t want to start a business by using the product of compromise.”  That’s it.

I don’t want to making excuses if something goes bad.

(To put it the other way around, I’m confident that I’m lenient with me…)
