New Website

March 7, 2009

Just a quick update – I just finished a new website for Fired Up San Clemente (a paying gig!) this week.  Learned a lot in the process.  I used my new Flash skills, and made sure the design elements were mostly contained in my css stylesheet.  I still need to go through validating the site to make sure my tags are all closed properly, and I’d like to clean up my css to remove any unneeded elements.  Also need to add a preloader to my custom flash (I did some slideshows using the default Dreamweaver flash ) so there isn’t a wait.

I should probably submit the site to Google to make sure I haven’t broken any meta tag rules!  This is all behind the scenes stuff – sorry if I bored you.  Take a look and let me know what you think!

Fired Up San Clemente


And so it begins (?)

OK – first post.  So intimidating.

What I’d like to accomplish with this blog:

1. Keep journal of Rohan – he’s two days shy of 11 months old and things are fuzzy.  Did he get his first tooth at 6 months or seven?  Five?  Does it even matter?  The cute things he does are fuzzy, too.

2. Start a record of my progress in learning how to use my husband’s D70.  I’d like to be able to help him with his biz, and I’d also like to stop asking him “will you take a picture of  (fill in the blank)?”

3. Figure out how to market myself as a web designer.  Do I even want to do that?  Not sure.  I am certainly not at a professional level yet, but maybe by working it out in my head by writing it down I will figure out if this is the direction I want to go.

4. Random musings (like all other blogs!).

That’s it for now.  I’ll figure it out as I go.
