For those of you - like me - who have never designed a website before. The task seems daunting... and it is! Oh boy is it! But for me? Oh no, never. I decided I should crank it up a notch. You know, make it harder. I thought, why use one of those easy pre-made templates? Well, that wouldn't even take an entire day! That's too simple for me! I'll get some website programming software and make one from scratch!
Purchasing some software, I set to work. Now I have spent a day and a half getting the program loaded and watching tutorials on how to use the thing! I'm already in over my presumed day long goal and guess what?! I still can't figure out how to put in a cool background let alone anything as minor as... you know, text! LOL! Now I have to decide whether to keep plodding through and make a truly amazing website... or go back to the previously scratched plan A and use one of those easy templates. The truest sign of my insanity is that I'm really not sure which way to go! Do I know it is silly to keep doing it this way? Sure! Do I get migraines every time they mention HTML code and where to store my Cascading Style Sheets on the server? Absolutely! Will I keep doing it? -- I do believe I will.
Why? Why do I insist on this madness, you say? Well, I'll tell you! It's because if I finish a project in less than a week, then I feel like I missed something. I pace around the house for hours trying to figure out how I could have done it better - because obviously it isn't any good if I finished it that quickly. Eventually it takes me as long as doing it the other way would have in the first place. Then, can I move on. Yes, I admit it. I have a problem. Is there a support group for that? If not, I'm making one.
By the way, the pictures are ones I picked to go on my website--should it ever be finished. Do you like?
