I went out today looking for a book on Drupal (which is a content management system that I’m considering using for my website) and found a book on web design which intrigued me. I’m now torn between paying someone else to do the design on my site and doing it myself. I’m still leaning towards having a designer do it, despite the fact that (with this book’s help) I think I might actually be able to do a halfway decent design. Mostly it’s that I want to learn about building websites, not designing in Photoshop – while the latter might be interesting, and would help me master Photoshop, there is too much on my plate to learn already. So I think I will leave the designing aspect to someone else and concentrate on implementation.
I am now ready to thread up the loom and will probably start later today or tomorrow, after I’ve finished jamming my brain with information about Drupal and web design.
