It all started when I had this thought the other day.
You might even call it an idea.
What if instead of waiting in the dark until whenever I get the 'HI54 re-design / re-launch' finished in its entirety, what if I instead just put together a little Advent Calendar so that I could take some breaks from working away behind the scenes and share a few things? Sort of dip my toes back into blahgging while I also slowly put back together the websites I recently took the metaphorical dynamite to?
But then I thought, “But Jeremy, you’re pretty far away from finishing the site and you still have a lot of things to figure out and work to get done… you can’t just be inviting people over to an unfinished website!”
To which I also thought, “But Jeremy, remember, we just talked about this—you wouldn’t be inviting people over to an unfinished website. You would just make an Advent Calendar section and you would keep everything else hidden."
And those two versions of myself went back and forth for awhile.
“But what about…"
“Again, the entire thing would just be an Advent Calendar. Nothing else needs to be ready or finished."
“Yeah, but the navigation menu…"
“Just an Advent Calendar."
"But links and formatting and…"
"Advent 👏 Calendar 👏 "
Anyways, you get the point
This is not the finished website.
This is not the relaunch. It’s just a mock advent calendar (and not even one of the ones where something new is revealed every day).
Why? Because it gets boring when you spend the whole day working behind the curtain on things. Also, sometimes you need to give an idea a little daylight to see if it will grow in the way you were thinking and/or if it will grow into what you were thinking. So the A.C. format seemed like a good way to get back out in the blahging waters, even though the website remodel is not finished.
And 'tis the season for sharing and all that stuff too.
