So here’s the story: I’ve been paralyzed with FUD for some time, nervously watching the ground fall out from under the web economy, wondering how it will affect me personally and, most importantly… when. So I’ve been picking up web-based skills when things are slow at work, and picking up new freelance work to do from home. For some reason the hardest part of preparing for the possible rainy season to come has been… putting up a self-promotional website. Oh, I have amassed content galore: the problem has been…. design. Wait, I’m a web designer, right? And I can’t design my own site?? Precisely. This blog page is my first semi-successful baby-step in that direction since… well, since my ‘first’ website, way back in ’98. Nuts!!
