I’m working on my website. This is always such a daunting process for a web designer, and probably any kind of designer. To design your own thing. You are quite possibly your own worst enemy.
It’s taken me about 6 months to nail down the overall feeling of the website. All this truly consists of is a background, header, content area, and footer. It should be simple.
It wasn’t. And part of the reason for that is because I needed to learn some new programming stuff.
It was a pain, but I learned it! And I have the overall template almost set up. It’s a little bare bones, but I have plans in the works. You can see it here! (I’m aware that my background image loads too slow, working on it!)
In case you’re wondering, I use Business Catalyst as the content management system (I’m also a reseller), and they give their designers handy tools and content to build their businesses. The copy you see is theirs, and will be different once I get that far.
Also, I used a cool blogger girl’s guide to building the overall style, and you can see her blog/that post here and here, respectively:
Thanks CSS Girl, way to represent the ladies!
