I am creating a website for a friend. It’s almost done, but it’s still at the stage where the “robots.txt” file is telling Google and Yahoo to stay away. It’s built on WordPress, a program I hardly know… in fact, until this project I’d never used it. I love it now.
Yeah WordPress, I love you.
This weekend I was going to enable some menus for the website. The site owner wanted them ordered in a specific way with some items excluded. I guessed at how it could be done. I anguished over it. I put off coding it. I didn’t start until 1:00 AM this morning!
It worked the first time. I’d ad libbed something the program wasn’t set up to do but was still capable of doing. One glance at the documentation was all it took. This program is great!
My case of “coder’s block” was unwarranted–though very real. I feared trying my ideas. I put everything off as long as I could. What a fool I am. This, unfortunately, is the story of my life. It is the weakest part of me. I hope my daughter doesn’t inherit this trait.
I enjoy programming. It is a very logical experience. I’d like to do more.
There are things I’d like to do if I only knew how.
