March was an interesting month, I was creating some cool graphics and liking the direction the blog was heading. I had become very interested in user experience and responsive web design thus I was feeling an immense amount of pressure to redo my portfolio site to reflect my knowledge on these topics. At the time, my site was basic HTML/CSS, which I coded myself, but I found myself constantly fussing over the design of the site every time I went to upload a new piece of work. After a lot of research I decided to use a Squarespace template; the deciding factor was that they had really mastered the responsive aspect of their designs.
Once I had decided what I wanted, I realized that I didn’t have time to redo my site and simultaneously create new designs for the blog. I was having a conversation about this dilemma with a friend and he suggested that I simply blog about the process of creating the new site; he reminded me that it was my blog and that I could do whatever I wanted with it. This was a very valuable piece of advice that I revisited frequently throughout the year.
