So, I’m in the midst of creating the Moon River Software website. I’ve been writing web software for going on seven years now, and you would think that after all this time, I’d have a pretty good idea of how long it’s going to take to get things done.
The fact is, that I do, so long as the content is ready and most things are generally laid out for me. But a full website design and implementation is a very different animal from web application programming. There are certainly people who are very good at both of them. Unfortunately, I’m not one of those people. My web programming skills far outweigh my web design skills. Fortunately, in the past I’ve not had to worry too much about web design. Now, I’m hip deep in it.
It will likely take me a couple of more days to figure out how to put everything where I want it, but once I do, most of the content should fall into place pretty quickly. Within the next 3-6 months, I’ll hire a web designer who can put a really good looking face on the Moon River website. Until then, you’re going to be stuck with the best semi-professional looking website that I can muster.
