I’m having a fear of commitment issue. I know how I want my blog to look, but I’m having trouble vocalizing it, and even more trouble trying to figure out what theme would be the best launching pad. I’m afraid that if I commit to a theme that I later do not like as much as another one, I’ll be stuck.
I’m very excited to keep working with WordPress. I’ve spent a good amount of time going through the themes and beginning to lay out my plan.
What I’m most excited about having learned are the possibilities in general that a site can do. I need to keep myself narrow-minded, though, and focus on certain things and not all of the foreseeable possibilities.
I just finished the assignment to try and create / install a child theme. Consider myself filled with a million new questions.
Anytime I feel remotely confident about something learned, that confidence lasts less than 24 hours until something reminds me that I know nothing. I feel like Jon Snow:
I’m even finding directions confusing at this point. I tried following the WordPress directions on how to create a child theme, and I’m not even sure I did it properly. I’m also not sure how much stuff I was supposed to change, but I tried fixing a few things that I don’t like on the current theme.
The guest speaker from last week was helpful in terms of showing us what is possible with WordPress, but the material was covered so quickly that at the time I thought I understood, but now that I’ve had a week to sit on it, I’m not so sure I can replicate anything that he did.
