So, you may notice quite a gap in my blog. Well, that's because any spare time I've had the past few months I've spent trying to get this Web site up and running. It's my biggest online endeavor to date, far more complex than any site I've created before.
I've actually had to learn some programming to get things working the way I want. And being an incurable perfectionist, I've spent weeks tweaking things. You might be surprised what it takes just to get an alphabetized list of stories to ignore the's and a's or to get a row of thumbnails to line up in a way that doesn't make my eyelids spasm.
I've got a huge backup of stories and photos waiting to go, and even some blog entries hiding away elsewhere, but I realized a few weeks ago that if I were ever to get any of it up, I'd have to let some things slip for a while and concentrate on the backend. Thus, the gap.
Given the option, I might work on things another month or so, but knowing I'd probably just say the same thing again come January, I made the decision this week to cauterize the stumps, release the creation and worry about prostheses later. If anything isn't working, I'll just have to trust the villagers to point it out to me.
Just another cycle of beer and coffee left to go, I think.
