Moving this Site Along

slated in site-building at 4:30 am

It’s so past my bedtime. Okay, so the site is pretty fumbled right now… witness my learning pains. I’m not feeling totally comfortable about keeping the lavender-rasasayang design for ferrydust.. though I’m also reluctant to discard it before it ever had a real chance. But this whole thing is good for me.. through this transitioning I am becoming acquainted with Textpattern and its tags and wiley ways. I am also being forced to better learn CSS. Two plugins already: ramanan‘s Word Count plugin and greenrift‘s wonderful Calendar plugin (because I miss the old calendar navigation in Xanga, and I’ll miss it from my MovableType rasasayang (for a little while still) site.

There are some pretty massive issues with the site as it is right now… contrast definitely needs some adjustment; I have to learn the CSS to make those lines do what they’re going to have to do; I’m missing a footer and a navigation menu; etc. etc. etc. With a bit of faith and quite a few more (nonconsecutively..meaning maybe I’ll finish this year) late nights (12am is late for me these days. I’m not the youngun with the rep for never sleeping, as I once was. I start work at 6:30am, furthermore..), I think it’ll all work out.

Further note: so far, no tables. That doesn’t mean the coding is clean, though.. I’m still trying to learn what I’m doing. I’m going to be so tired at work tomorrow. goodnight..
