Yesterday, I implied that this site was ugly by design. See, my retreat from web development wasn't due to lack of time, nor waning interest. My love of coding, designing and experimenting with the web never dulled nor guttered out.
Instead, it was smothered. Overwhelmed by a quest for perfection; a fear of failure. Any new website had to be visionary, perfectly executed, uniquely my own. Predictably I failed, instead becoming paralysed. But by starting with the bare minimum – naked, imperfect, raw HTML – I can finally sidestep my mental blockade. I can finally return to the web. I can finally... start.
