An update on where I am with redesign my blog’s theme.
I ran across a post in 2014 where the writer documented his web development toolbox. I loved the idea, so I've documented my toolbox here.
It’s important to me to keep a clear separation from the work I do for the government and the work I do on my own.
As I’ve (slowly) began writing again, I documented my workflow for planning content, writing it and ultimately posting it.
Check out the perfect sketch pad for me to take pencil to paper as I ideate on designs for brettro.com
Documenting the content management systems I’ve used over the years.
After 12 years in business I closed Brettrospective Media’s virtual doors in mid-2017.
As I rekindled my blog I realized its custom theme hadn’t been touched in nearly seven years so as I design and develop the new one I plan to document my decisions and the things I learn here.
With an already demanding full-time job, I was burning the candle at both ends trying to meet the needs of my clients and the demands of my job and in early 2013 I burnt out.
Because I was already using ExpressionEngine on a daily basis, I felt that I needed to use WordPress on a website that I would also work with daily so that I would become equally as familiar with it. And so I chose WordPress to be the CMS for brettro.com.
