So why haven’t I updated this site in almost a month? [Later, this becomes high posting frequency. – JLG, 3-20-2020]
It’s not so much that my enthusiasm for keeping this site updated is flagging, though that is part of it.
I think it’s safe to say that it’s been easy to get burned out on this site. I spent a ton of time last month (really, it’s only been 3 weeks or so) putting together the portfolio. It’s harder than it looks, and I still have things to finish.
I have also been (as might be predicted) insanely busy. The redesign of the DNR site is in a critical stage that I seem to be not entirely able to reconcile with the large number of requests for updates and new projects from my co-workers. [But that’s my job, so I’d better do it.] I’m also attempting to do some freelance design, as I may have mentioned, and I’m a bit behind on that. Visiting family and old friends, as I did last weekend, involves a lot of strangely exhausting time behind the wheel. And there are other stresses as well.
With all that said, I have been keeping track of sites to note in this space — and the list begins here.
Here’s a mildly amusing thing — an April Fool’s joke — that I masterminded at work. We actually got good feedback from customers and good press (unfortunately only available in a paid archive), so I think it was worthwhile. (I didn’t write it, but I did doctor the photo [which is no longer there! I might have to try to find it…?!].)
These are people who do what I do much better than I do: Design is Kinky; linkdup; preloaded.
