Built my personal website

This website is built with a google site. I haven't worked with them much in the past, but it seems pretty simple. The domain name: corymcdermott.com was purchased from godaddy.com. I actually purchased it awhile ago, but haven't made time to just get it done. I find that motivation is a funny thing. I feel a heck of a lot more motivated after I just start typing.

Google has given me many good products over the years: gmail, google docs, forms, youtube, search. I figured I'd five sites a chance.

The hardest part of this whole process was figuring out how to map corymcdermott.com to the google site. I'll try to at some point put up a video about it.

The key is to follow the instructions here:
1) http://support.godaddy.com/help/article/6031/mapping-your-domain-name-to-work-with-google-site

2) Make sure to add the godaddy domain to the google webmaster tools:
https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/home?hl=en

3) Getting the favicon is pretty simple, but not easy to find:
