It is time for some big changes around here.
Welcome to BeccaSayre.com 3.0. I’m planning on using this as my new homebase for my portfolio and projects and I hope that keeping it in WordPress will help me keep it up to date. Updating my old all-code-no-CMS site wasn’t hard technically, but it definitely was hard to make myself actually take the time to do it. Something about spending all day/week/year updating client sites makes it difficult to actually sit down and work for yourself! Well, that and I am insanely picky about my own site’s “looks.” I’ll be 2/3rds done and then I’ll see something or learn something and want to restart fresh incorporating my new knowledge. Wordpress helps this compulsion of mine a bit as redoing a site in the future will be as easy as uploading a new theme . . . unless by then I’ve found something I like even better, in which case my brain probably already popped from excitement.
A little about the looks of the site: I started with a very different idea that more or less looked like my old site. I scrapped it before I got too bored and several revisions later ended up at something approximating what you’re seeing now. The boredom started creeping in again. I considered a third (fourth? fifth? sixth?) restart, but then something excellent happened. While scouting the internet for portfolio ideas I stumbled upon Classica. Classica ended up being just clean and simple enough to modify to my liking and it came with an excellent wordpress backend that would make keeping my work updated even easier. Perfection.
So that’s where I am now, armed with a new website that I can change and grow with and a lot of project ideas I am excited to work on and share. Get ready internet.
