Weekend Favorites

Are you one of those people who loses themselves in a project at the expense of everything else? When it comes to tinkering with my website, I totally am. I’ve spent the past two days doing very few things that don’t have acronyms. HTML, PHP, CSS… up to my eyeballs, folks. And do you know why?

Well, I thought my blog design could use a little more whitespace. And so I decided to go wider with it. But I didn’t want to alienate those who had smaller browser windows. And what about those who were using mobile devices? So I taught myself a thing or two about responsive design in CSS, and fixed up my site so that it grows and shrinks (and moves around sidebars) depending on the size of your browser window.

Go ahead and play with it – change the size of your browser window and see what happens. It’s fun!

I got the bulk of it done in about an hour, but the rest of the two days were spent tracking down niggly little bits that were just off a smidge, but they were smidge enough to throw parts of my site out of whack. That kind of work is both fun and frustrating at the same time. Especially when there are Real Life Things demanding attention all day, too.

Anyway, I’m done now, aside from one or two minor issues I am saving for later. And just in time for the weekend!

I spend an hour or so every morning, Monday through Thursday, sharing my favorite crafty links on Sulia. And then I repeat them here on Fridays.

I hope you have a great weekend, and please, if you notice any wonky behavior from this website, please do let me know! I tested my new design pretty well, but there is always the chance I missed something!
