This web page has been made with WordPress

At first it took me a bit to figure out how WordPress works.
But once I understood it more or less, I realized that making a small website like this is quite easy. One thing that I had a hard time understanding is that WordPress doesn’t really have the same flexibility as html. If you work with WordPress you have to stick to the template that they give you already made, and you cannot alter it too much. But once you understand this point, you can quickly advance in the construction of your page, and quickly obtain spectacular results, which would be much more difficult to obtain with html.

About me

My trade is making harpsichords. I started making them when I moved from New York to Antwerp in 1610, at the age of 11. Since then I have worked in the workshop of Hans Ruckers and then with his son Ioannes. Years later I set up my own workshop in Antwerp and I became a serious competitor to Ioannes Couchet and his sons. After that, I moved to Paris and I set up a harpsichord workshop not far from Pascal Taskin’s. I became good friends with Taskin himself, and also with Henri Hemsch. Years later I moved back to my native New York and continued to develop my activity there until today. After more than 400 years developing my profession, I am beginning to seriously consider the idea of retiring. Maybe I will do it in not more than 15 or 20 years.

Obviously, all the above information is incorrect. I am not 400 years old, and I was not born in New York before its founding. I wrote this to hugely exaggerate my resume, which is something I suspect a lot of people do as well. Although in my case this exaggeration is evident
