One reason that I moved from blogspot to WordPress was so that I could have much more freedom with the layout. Years ago, I could get away with using tables and frames and all would be well, but both have fallen by the wayside; this, paired with my having walked away from webdesign has lead to extreme frustration and delay in coding my design properly. I mean, I do have something, I swear!
The simplicity was a choice, not a limitation brought on by my lack of expertise ha. If it was, I would have put up this layout a lot sooner. I’m trying to code my own theme so not only am I relearning html and css, but learning wordpress functions as well. Difficult, but rewarding nonetheless.
In keeping with the geeky coding and nostalgia theme of this post, I present a well-deserved plug to my friend Isabel and her friend Flora’s new website & blog: bourbon, sugar, & mint! They’ve described it as “Two grad students escaping the doldrums of academia by indulging in the world of pop culture, DIY, crafting, décor, and fashion.” Go go go!
