Okay I’ll admit it, I’m my own worst enemy when it comes to building websites. I’m acutely aware that I am far too picky and quite often it’s up to the client to tell me when enough is enough. “Hey, the first design you sent me would have sufficed”, seems to be a common theme, but even if the client is over the moon I am rarely happy with the end product.
And don’t even get me started about blogging. Over the years I have promised myself that I’ll use my blog to store handy snippets of code I have written so I don’t have to repeat the feat, or to update the masses (hi mum!) with what’s new in my life or career. I also promise myself I will compile a handy portfolio of my work for all to see. It never happens. That is, until now.
Character is what emerges from all the little things you were too busy to do yesterday, but did anyway.
Of course I am well aware as I write this that I am writing this article on yet another unfinished website, with a faint resemblance of a blog, a non entity of a portfolio, and a logo that, well, don’t get me started on the logo. But the intention is there and this time I’m going to follow through on my promises.
I’m probably too busy for it, that’s the usual excuse, but that’s really nothing new. The bottom line is that even if I have bitten off far more than I can chew, I’m going to keep chewing anyway.
