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!
Webdesign is a totally different game now. But the sneak peek looks awesome, you still “got it” for sure. You’re inspiring me to finally suck it up and get back into it again because, as you said, it really is a gratifying feeling once it’s done.
But even more importantly: you are so sweet and I think you’re just the best.
WHAT? Why are you so wonderful and kind?! ♥
Webdesign is so baffling now. Actual thoughts I’ve had: “Why can’t I just use my tables?” “What are all these number signs for?” “Classes, what classes?” “Why do my graphics need to float?” haha But yes, go for it! :D
Just don’t start with WordPress… ugh so many question marks, semi-colons, and parentheses. AND PAGES. so. many. pages. But it’s just ’cause I don’t get it yet.
Oh hey! It’s beauuuuutiful! I’m in awe because you are awesome.
Aw, thank you!
