Progress

Have made some progress and am feeling good about it. Felt quite stuck with where I was in the Responsive Web Design class on Skillcrush, but went back into and moved forward quite a bit. This is the re-do of the class with flexbox incorporated, and not just as an add-on at the end. It’s been great (and of course frustrating as I am still learning) to build another site. The last version of the class had a website called Unplugged, about music. After messing with it for such a long time, I was SO sick of looking at it, and truly not looking forward to seeing the images/code again. But, huzzah, they have now changed it to a website for a corporate retreat place called Unplugged. Did a little happy dance when I realized it was going to be different.

Want to finish the three remaining projects in the Bootstrap class I’m taking online at Udemy (I finished the second but didn’t blog about it), hoping I can bang the next one out tomorrow.

I built a website for a friend ages ago on Wix. She has some exciting stuff coming up – a new online course in writing memoir! – and she’d gotten a promo video from the company to share. I went into her account to upload it, and while I was there basically did quite a bit of change, all in a couple of hours. This time around I knew to think about making the font size actually legible, and to take a keen look at the mobile version to make sure it looked good.

She’s pleased; I’m pleased.

I want to code the site from scratch at some point, but that hasn’t happened yet! https://www.emilyrappblack.com/

Watched a super cool video today about variable fonts, about which I know very very little, but this makes me want to learn more! It also for sure makes me want to learn about animation.
