Summer always seems to go too fast, doesn’t it? Sure the cooler weather of fall is fun and all but these long summer days just fly by too fast for me.
One of my summer projects was to find a new volunteer place here in town and I recently started building a website for a charity group – I’ll unveil it when it’s actually done and pretty! I’ve always been on the other side of the web, maybe writing some content, posting through wordpress, but never actually designing or creating a site, especially from scratch.
I’ve learned I’m not great at it. So for those of you who wrongly accuse me of being good at everything I say this website is proof I’m not and you’ve never seen me attempt to play volleyball.
But it’s given me a smidgen of confidence to play around with this site since the only one I have to please is me. So far I activated a new theme (though I’m cranky that I can’t do the Gallery Plug-In I want for my photography) and designed a new banner. Still working on the sidebars and updating the categories in my older posts but back to 2009 I’ve edited all of the posts.
That’s 19 months worth of posts.
I also have a few static pages under construction – the ones that are complete About Me and My Boys are pretty simple right now, I might jazz them up later. Once I get all my photos transferred to the Mac I’ll be ready to finish the House Tour page and an updated Project page so I can track changes to the property here.
I’m also thinking WAY ahead to renting this place out when I move and want to have a slew of gorgeous photos to share.
So while many things are changing, I’m still the Type A, overachiever who started college classes when I was 14 and went from debate novice to national champions in a years time. And baring a brain injury that’s not going to change!
