Website development–fun??? Yes, I’m sure that you think that thought is weird. Sometimes I think it is as well. I have to say, though, that I really enjoy developing websites. It’s the content I have more of a problem with, especially my own. What do I say? Why should I say it? I know that a website needs to be updated regularly, but what kind of updates? However, I enjoy setting up websites, and posting other people’s content. I also like showing them how to post their content so that they can take ownership of it. I get a "zing" out of creating websites. Yes, sometimes it’s tedious, especially when something isn’t working correctly. Sometimes it takes a lot of my time. Sometimes I need a break. However, if I’m taking a break from one, I usually tinker with another. I guess it’s an addiction. I create websites using an Open Source Content Management System (CMS) called Joomla! 1.5, and a series of extensions made for Joomla! 1.5. Some are quite easy to configure, and some can be quite challenging. I have probably created ten different websites using Joomla! 1.5. It allows me to put up complex websites up in…

I have certainly been gone from this blog for a while. I’m a bit ashamed and embarrassed. I’m not the best blogger in the world. Nothing very interesting has been happening in my life. Maybe that’s a good thing! My websites were attacked back in November, and they were off-again on-again for a while. Finally, I completely redid them. It wasn’t too bad since the sites are all dynamic database-driven websites. I’m happy to say that they are all back and in running order. My husband’s website: www.woodencelt.com My homeschool site with LOTS of links to great resources: www.clevercelts.com/entmoot-academy My personal site concerning all of my passions: www.clevercelts.com Go visit sometime, and let me know what you think about the sites!

I don’t know if it’s because I have been sitting at a computer for way too long, or what, but the colors of this website are bothering my eyes. Would you please let me know whether the colors against the transparent background look okay? Should I make the columns less transparent? It may be because I experienced some great eyestrain yesterday, and I’m not completely over it. When I designed it a few days back, it didn’t bother me.

I would be a stay-at-home mom. I would get up in the morning with my kids, fix breakfast, homeschool when the sun was up, do laundry, keep the house clean, sew, write, and design websites. Unfortunately, this is not a perfect world, and that is not my lot in life. Instead, I get up early and go into a job that I’m very thankful for in these times of uncertainty, come home, homeschool my children my share of the subjects (my husband homeschools art, history, and Bible), design websites, and plan for the next homeschool day. Then I plop into bed a very exhausted mom, just to start it all up the next day. I’m not complaining. I have learned to be content in these trials, no matter what the desire of my heart is. I know that one day I will have the desire of my heart, even if it is on the other side of this life. Why do I not get to stay at home with my children? Well, my husband is disabled. The neurologist believe that he has a very sensitive nervous system. Not much we can do but treat it. Sometimes his legs just stop…
