Liz Gets a Site Redesign!
We’ve discussed her site a lot, these past few weeks. Last night, Liz equated the work we did to wedding planning – a big list of tasks and decisions to make. Some things she had strong opinions on, other things she didn’t have any opinion on (but needed to get one). And so on.
We spent a lot of time going over existing WP themes, and found one that she liked. From there, I tweaked things a bit with a child theme, and built a local version with MAMP so we could easily view, discuss, and make changes on the fly.
From a technical standpoint, it was very comfortable working with this redesign. I’ve done a slew of WP sites in the past, and this site flip was pretty seamless all in all. Comparing my skillset now, versus what I knew back in 2011 was surprising. It felt pretty good, to be honest.
I’m excited by Liz’s new site, and I hope you’ll swing by and drop a line to tell her congratulations. She’s a skilled maker, and there’s just so much on there that she’s documented… it’s really incredible. Worth browsing around, just to see all the things she’s made by hand.
