[UPDATE: Got my website looking good again today, brand new actually]
When something either goes wrong or not according to plan, my number one objective is to keep calm. That means not overreacting, getting mad, blaming myself or someone else, or sulking.
Yeah, that’s a pretty ambitious goal considering I’m all too-human, not a Vulcan or other logical, emotionally controlled sentient being.
Case in point…my website! Yeah, it looks totally weird. The banner image is missing, the right sidebar fell below the blog posts, and other styles went wonky.
The site worked fine yesterday morning when I uploaded some plans for my Walking 101 workshop/workout attendees. Later in the day, when I planned to add another item, I discovered this mess. I wasn’t happy, and I broke my number one rule. As usual. Oh well.
Fixing the problem will take me a little time because I don’t mess with web design that much these days. I always refer back to notes, guides and tutorials for reminders and solutions. I rather remember other things these days, not code.
What is cool about my website going wonky (I believe my older theme isn’t compatible with the latest framework update) is that, rather than spending time to fix it, I can now spend that same time (and more, probably) to update its looks with a more modern, fresher design. I’ve want to do this for quite some time.
When things break it may be time to try something new.
In the meantime, please pardon my messy website. It will be looking better soon.
