The Effort Continues at a Snail’s Pace Converting My Website to WordPress
I continue with my efforts to convert my website, creativewebactions.com from HTML to WordPress. I am looking at my website as the Mother-ship of new creative ideas, test ground for marketing and technology changes and an innovative wellspring of the technology of WordPress to subsist as a future-proof marketing tool and industrial business asset. The pace is very slow. I work on it when I have the free time that’s between those real work opportunities that provide the cash-flow to keep the lights on or after my networking, marketing and sales activities that focus on filling my pipeline with qualified sales leads.
Hence, there is no schedule or timeline – just work on it, when I get around to it. The website (unlike human beings, didn’t say wives) waits for me patiently without ever nagging for attention to add another new page or the progress is too slow. I do this internal project to redesign my website as an important endeavor, but always secondary to my paying customer.
I spend a lot of thinking about different design scenarios, while I am actually working on this redesign and engaged with other customer projects. For example, I’ll be driving to a meeting in Riverview and thinking about some new design concepts and will record them on my phone. My iPhone has become my computer in transit.
I am totally without any guilt. I just remember the shoemaker’s children and this website will be eventually be completed, just as the shoes will be eventually made for the children of the shoemaker. Also, my motivation plays a key influence in how fast the work proceeds. My frame-of-mind and whether I am inspired to produce creative substance also plays a key role. The big stumbling block is to figure out how to handle the CCS from the original site. I am doing this on-the-fly. I don’t want to throw away any good stuff, but sometimes it’s necessary. I am looking to change the design and style it to be different, but keeping an airy and clean crisp style. I am in the parallel process of reworking the written content that was originally developed in 2007, when I first started. My aim is to simplify the copy and change it to my new business model as a freelancer.
