Oops. I missed posting Tuesday here at SoC, although I did post at my new Theme Park, where I’m testing out various WordPress themes (designs, layouts) to see which would be the best for me to use as a template for my own theme. And because I need to be proficient in CSS (Cascading Style Sheets, what gives a web page its “look”) to create a WordPress theme, I’ve been trying my hand at the CSS Zen Garden. I’m studying some of the designs (& designers) there to help me get a better handle on CSS, and perhaps even inspire me in the process.
I actually finished a design yesterday. It’s pretty simple, but it still gave me lots of trouble. I do need to go in and clean up the CSS file, and tweek it just a little bit. But the great thing is it looks pretty much the same in Firefox, IE, and Safari (which of course is the reason for web standards in the first place). I don’t know about Opera, though. (Opera’s for Macs, isn’t it? Or do they have a PC version? Safari used to be Mac, I believe, but now there’s also a PC version. And yes, if I want to be serious about designing websites, I need to have a Mac. But no one pays me to do this, so I’ll just live in the PC world for now.)
Oh, I did also work on my 2008 Christmas letter. It’s basically done but I haven’t posted it yet. (It’s really short because this year kind of fell short, ya know?) I suppose that could have been my post for yesterday, but alas, twas not. I’ve kind of faded on this whole NaBloPoMo thing anyway. I never uploaded the “badges” and I don’t think any of my entries have been counted, because I haven’t entered them from their site. So, meh.
