My name is Done
I'm not entirely sure how long this project has actually dragged out, but I've owned an unused personal license to Kirby CMS for about 5 years now. Before this current project even came about, I had originally built my site on AnchorCMS, 9 years back.
So, where has all the time gone?
Absolutely nowhere. Designing for yourself is difficult; usually, the project ends up in website purgatory for the next 10-15 years. It eventually gets finished. Maybe. This one did, kinda.
Making easier decisions
Overthinking the entire design to start with, I spent the majority of 2015 trying to teach myself Flexbox on the fly. I refactored CSS that was already being used elsewhere for other projects. I stripped, mangled, and re-purposed JS in every corner for objects I wasn't even using. I was designing a web framework for others to use, not myself.
Less is more
I've finally come to the realization that simple is better. I haven't coded anything I don't/won't need, I'm not concerned about the clarity of fields in the CMS panel, and I'm not worried about having a piece of variable data for every bit of info on this site.
Writing sucks. Especially opinions. My opinion sucks, and so does yours. I personally don't feel like writing about it, so I like to keep things short and sweet. Just like all my notes. This has also forced me to consider my writing 'language', or the style in which I write. Sentences should be less than 10 words. They should also include obscenities.
