You know what? I think the hardest thing to do is to design something for yourself. As much as a doctor fails to follow his own advise or a builder keeps his own place in shape!
I REALLY want to change the design of verysimpledesigns.com. I created a new and fresh logo. And yes it still will be purple.. I like purple. But then…
Joomla is currently at version 1.7. There seems to be an update for every component I use but one.. *sigh* .. update or not to update… what replacement to use??
Do I change my menu from vertical to horizontal? I want to use sliders to save some real estate and present recent Inkscape tutorials in a bit more convenient way. I like the web 2.0 glossy horizontal web styles. I build many of those for our clients. And they all look good! But if you have heaps of content.. the centre part is a bit of an empty block. And I have a LOT of content, just consider the length of my tutorials. Horizontal? Vertical? Horizontal?
I do need to update the stylesheet. I used one that came with a free template and there are many minor beauty flaws in it. One of the things that I should have corrected straight away is to put a numbered style in place. That makes the tutorials so much more readable. But that also means that I have to go through all the tutorials and update the styling to make it look GOOD.
So back to square one.. redesign or refresh? Omg.. deadlock… I need some inspiration, motivation and someone needs to kick my but.
