Now in beta

I underestimated the power of my perfectionist streak. Should know myself better than that …

I genuinely had every intention of using a premade WordPress theme and just tweaking it slightly. I even had a decent one picked out. But naturally this turned out to be an exercise in a hundred tiny annoyances and dissatisfactions, so after about an hour I tossed it and started rolling my own code and design. From scratch.

Took me two long days of doing not much else to get to this point (which made for a very mopey Jak, as I’ve been unavailable for working on our novel). It’s bare-bones at the moment, so I’ll be adding features as I go, and I’m sure I’ve missed some style combinations that will crop up as it gets further use.

But I am happy with it, which is saying a lot, because these days I am crotchety and very hard to please.

Caveat: If you’re using IE 7 you’re probably seeing some mess, because this is my party and I refuse to spend hours attempting to cater to a crappy browser. IE 8, Firefox, and Safari all work properly.

    Hihi Seala. :)

    I’m as weird about WoW as anything else, all-or-nothing girl. I just can’t bear to do anything by half-measures. Right now I’m enjoying doing other things with all those hours in my week, like working with Jak on the novel and … well, this. So, not ready to come back to the game time-suck yet.

    But it’s good to hear from you, made me smile. Hope to see you around. :)

    If Karawynn is crotchety, then maybe she needs to play WoW with her friend Seala…. :)

    Miss ya!

    (Plus, a mopey Jak, is definitely no fun.)

    Not that mopey actually… but anxious to make progress on the novel(s). :)
