Sometimes it might look like it, but running Wit & Whistle isn’t all fun and drawing naked dudes and fetuses. I also spend a lot of time doing crappy stuff like bookkeeping, taxes, and web programming. It has been four years since I designed my current site, but now that being “mobile friendly” is a thing we all have to worry about, I’m redesigning it and switching to a new e-commerce plugin while I’m at it. I don’t really know what I’m doing, but I know just enough about web programming that I’d feel silly hiring someone else to do it for me. So, for the past week I’ve been hacking away at CSS and staring blankly at PHP. My favorite part about PHP is that one teeny tiny typo will cause your entire website (including the WordPress editor) to disappear. It’s the best.
In spite of all the frustration, I’m getting a tortured sense of satisfaction now that things are slowly coming together. I’m hoping to go live with the new site sometime next week. Actually I don’t know if that’s possible, but declaring it here on the blog makes it an official deadline that I have to meet. Better place your orders now before I post the new site and everything breaks. Ha!! Just kidding. (I hope.)
Look! The test site fits on my phone. There’s a little menu button and everything. Not too shabby for I-have-no-idea-what-I’m-doing programming, eh?
Okay… what a boring post, but this is really all I’ve been working on lately, so welcome to my boring life!
