I just finished uploading the new version of my website. It is a brand new design. I had been putting it off because of the enormity of the project. My website had become a record of my work, and as a friend pointed out, it collected the work I had presented over the last ten years. That was an additional point that hadn’t sunk in.
A new look is what I was after. Something cleaner and crisper that featured my new work, the new place I am at with my work. I also wanted to reflect on the evolution of my work over the last ten years without losing what has taken me through this path to where I am.
To add to the challenge, I was using new software and hardware to manage the change. Need I say more?
Things got better when a pre-scheduled weekend workshop was suddenly cancelled and instead of lamenting the loss of the learning opportunity I quickly recognized I had free time. I then asked myself what I could best do with this new-found time. The instant answer was to get the new website done!
So in characteristic focused manner, I dove right in expecting to not come up for air until I was done. I needed to resolve various technical hiccups that I had set aside for a rainy day and I acknowledged that now was the time to crunch and go deeper.
Let me tell you that pressing the “upload” button was suspenseful and to my satisfied surprise, all went smoothly. All thanks to the intense testing and troubleshooting to get to this exciting moment.
I hope you like the new look. Here’s to the next decade online.
