Agenda

I have been hard at work on the technical aspects and some of it is starting to pay-off. I know you can't necessarily see a lot of what I'm doing, but trust me, I've put in a lot of hours here... it's just not the easiest thing in the world to do and it takes a while. There is a real art to webdesign and, like all art, it's largely a matter of taste and trial-and-error. The more you do it, the better you get at it, but most of it comes down to personal preference. When you change something, you have to stop and eyeball it, then go back in and change it again (or change something else to better fit the changes you just made), go back and check it out, ad nauseam; every little change affects everything else and it all takes time.

I am having some problems with the color scheme. Obviously.

I want to go with an Earth-based theme - blue (we got that covered - in spades!), yellow/orange, greens, browns - but I don't have full control over all the colors already set in the template. I should, I'm just not as good with CSS as I'd like to be. I'm learning, but it's a steep learning curve - there's an art to coding too, and a lot of it is like every other art: everyone has their own "style." I have yet to figure out the "style" in-play on this particular template, so I'm having trouble locating all the elements I want to change. And, like I said, I don't necessarily know wtf I'm doing once I do find them; trial-and-error.

I would absolutely love some input, if anyone has some suggestions. Otherwise, I'm still chugging along, as best I can.

Anyway, just stopping-by to keep you informed. I'd like to thank everyone for stopping-by, I just wish more of you would comment so I know how I'm doing! And don't forget to subscribe. We have a whole lot more on the way and once the redesign is finished, I'll have more time to do more of the in-depth posts. In the meanwhile, there's no shortage of odd goings-on to keep you entertained.
