Now that my professional website is updated, I am really itching to update the design on this very blog. But alas, it will have to wait, as I have a (to borrow an expression from my friend Mo) high class problem: tons and tons of current work. It is funny how the ups and downs of freelancing go. One minute, you have no work or very little (October, for example) and the next you are flush. This, I think, is the hardest part for many people when considering working for themselves: the uncertainty. If you have the temperament for it though (and I most definitely do), I think it is far more rewarding than working for someone else on a set schedule. To name just a few of the practical benefits: No rush hour commute, shopping/errands when the stores are empty, taking a walk outside whenever you want, setting your own hours of work, setting your own places of work, variety of work and clients, and more. These benefits far outweigh the perceived security of a regular, full time job. At least for me they do.
After several major design changes, I am almost there with the new site and will post a lengthy article about it shortly, with links. In trying to make it as accessible to as many browsers as possible, I have to make a lot of ugly programming happen behind the scenes, but I think the result will be worth it. It is amazing how complicated it can be to create something that looks so simple. But I suppose that is the case with a lot of things. The things that look effortless are usually not. I also hope to resume my more normal blogging schedule and be a generally more interesting person. Thanks for your patience.
Today was all about the business, what with finishing a site and meeting with clients. And I am pretty happy with how the sites are turning out. Check out this one for example.
I was bored and busted out the old technogeek in me to design my own WordPress theme. What you see is the result. I will be tweaking it a bit over the next few days, so feel free to give your feedback. Love it? Hate it? Don’t care?Me aburrieron y decidía reajustar el sitio, utilizado mis viejas habilidades técnicos. Espero que gustan el resultado. Yo voy a ajustarlo un poco mas, si tienen feedback.
