My computer is driving me insane again, but I have some very good news. Dad will be giving me $2000 AUD to get a new one! I’ll be so relieved to have something that works properly and that has a screen in working order. I have some idea of the type I will be getting – One from Dell with nifty elements like a 360gb hard drive and 4gb of ram. I wouldn’t go for anything less now. I am thinking about getting a Digital Camera at the same time because I really miss being able to take photos and document the life around me. I took a lot of photos of my cat Witchypoo before she went missing and I feel scared in case another should go missing and I couldn’t take more photos of them. I guess I have to decide between getting a Camera that will be very useful and rewarding in it’s own way or having an extra $200 for websites and random other online needs.
I have been doing a lot of thinking of late and decided I am going to open a hobby site to do designs for other peoples websites. I enjoy playing with CSS, no I would say I love CSS and I feel confident when I am creating designs, so why not make them for others? They would all be valid XHTML and CSS and for a variety of different forms, like WordPress, standard web templates and maybe small fanlisting designs. The idea of this is for it to be fun and not overwhelming so I am going to take it slow and not swamp myself with it. It could take a few months or longer to get it together but I will keep everyone updated. I have also decided on a domain for it, that I own. But unfortunately if I tell you, I have to kill you.
I guess it would be a good idea to get a little bit of feedback. So if you are willing please answer me the following questions in a comment:
- How much would you pay for a general website or WordPress Template?
- How much would you pay for XHTML and CSS validation for each page of your website?
- Do you like designs that are; Creative/Imaginative, Clean/Professional, Basic/Simple or other?
- Would you pay extra for an image with your design or prefer to create your own?
- Any comments?
