Alright, it took quite some time for me to set up and get everything functioning but my online shop is up and ready to take orders! Check out what’s available for purchase, there are several works available in their original or print form. Follow the Shop link in the menu above.
I will say that it’s very gratifying to finish everything on my own, but I definitely know now that I am not meant to be a web designer or developer. Thank goodness for sites like WordPress and all of its plug-ins which help someone like me to be able to have professional and functioning websites, but it’s still a lot of work. There’s a lot that I still have to learn. A couple of years ago I tried taking some web design classes but it eventually became too overwhelming for me. I’ll stick to WordPress, it does all the hard work for me…unless I end up screwing some shit up – which I did plenty of times while setting up the shop! This past Sunday night I was determined to wrap it all up though, so I stayed up until about 3am trying to figure out how to get the final touches together so everything would work. All that time, just to figure out that I needed to add one simple piece of code.
“Oh hell nah…Are you f**kin’ kidding me??! THAT was it?!” <<——- My reaction.
I hope that this will be the last big technical project for a while. The mental rollercoaster was NOT worth it once I figured out the solution.
Again, I am NOT meant to be a web developer and it was very clear that night especially. I’d much rather stay up that late working on a painting than this stuff. It’s much more fulfilling, and I’m beyond ready to get back to sharpening my skills. But now I know what to do next time, and anything left to do here is just minor updates. Thank goodness…
