For the first time in years, I am creating a website….
It has been a while, I guess i need to figure out what is in WordPress these days. Lots of “drag and drop”, which is a bit of a change for me. I used to use NotePad++, and dabbled only a little with WordPress. This is going to be a fun adventure.
I think the major adjustment for me is going to be not using a text editor. I don’t know how many years I spent constantly re-learning code because web design is in a constant state of flux. WordPress simplifies that for a lot of people, and because of that, I have become one of “those people” I used to ridicule. The WYSIWYG and “Drag and drop” site builder.
Now that I look at it, everything has come full circle. Where i originally started with WYSIWYG website design, learning how to write a site in a text editor due to being disgusted, I am back to making a website with WordPress. Don’t get me wrong, there have been leaps and bounds improvements, and it is no where near as clunky or horrid as it use to be (those of us who remember GeoCities *gasp*), but the realization of me hitting a button to “update” and “dragging and dropping” once again has given me a kind of eerie feeling…..
Well, let the fun begin!
