Seriously. What does that even mean? If I spend money on something and only get one chance at it, of course I’ll be reading (and probably re-reading) the instructions as I go along. If I don’t pay for it, and if I can switch everything back around if something goes wrong, I’ll jump right in and learn on the curve.
That’s the way I’ve been working on this website. Once this project is mostly together, I think I’ll write a blog post about my trials and tribulations from start to finish, just in case you folks someday want some virtual real estate of your own. I’m no web programmer–and it’s constantly frustrating to have this vision of how I want things to turn out, and to not be able to just spin them into reality with some magical HTML incantations. That said, I think it’s possible to create something that’ll do for the time being, which I can improve as I go, and which can someday be handed off to a web designer who will take it to the next level.
I’ve got a lot of cool projects I’m waiting to launch (including a comprehensive guide on materials for making mini food), but they all ride on fripperyfactory.com being finished. If you don’t see much of me in the next few days, it’s not because I’m avoiding you, it’s because I’m trying to get everything ironed out for The Big Move. Which is going to be basically like a non-stop mini food party.
