Well I have been spending a lot of time getting to know the inside of the website and how it all clicks together. Unfortunately all that this has really resulted in is me not writing anything af value.
The good news is that I have found a new content management tool called Word Press, and there are hundreds of templates that I can use to make the look that I want. I have to accept that I am not a webdesigner and will have to accept (with good grace) the skills of others.
This has also been slowing me down on other stuff as well. I should have been writing a whole bunch of copy for our new business website. But I’ll talk about that in a different post. As usual I hope to start writing more again, since I feel like there is a bunch of stuff backing up in my brain just busting to get out.
I listened to an interesting podcast this morning from Dave Winer this morning. He was talking about the reluctance to release pre-formed ideas out to others since the net effect was usually that they ended up causing him grief. This came from an imbalance of people saying negative things about the work or ideas that had been distributed. On reflection however, he went of to say that this was a necessary part of the process of both getting things to work and to start getting a concensus from others. ‘Go Quickly’ – he said.
Well that is how I want to re-invigorate what I am doing. ‘Go Quickly’.
