I used to have a website for our dogs, even though I have never bred a litter and don’t compete in shows or trials very often. I’ve actually had the kennel name domain since 1998, and the site was started a couple of years before that. I stopped maintaining and updating it a few years ago when two of our older dogs passed away.
When Freya came to live with us in January 2004, I thought I’d resurrect the website. I tossed some ideas around in my head, and even went as far as making Photoshop comps of one of them, but I still didn’t get the website back online.
When Axel came to live with us in January 2007, I went through that whole process once again. Still no website. As you know from yesterday’s post, Freya is now five years old. Axel’s second birthday is coming up in a matter of days.
I’m not sure why it’s been so hard for me to get motivated to put something new up for myself. I do maintenance and updates for a few dog club/organization websites, and my husband’s motorcycle club’s website. I also designed and maintain Axel’s breeder’s website, and a website for another breeder friend. But when it comes to my own site, I have the equivalent of writer’s block. Or maybe that should be designer’s block, or coder’s block.
I know, I know… I should stop overanalyzing my designs and just go ahead and do something, anything. So who is going to slap me to my senses and help me sort pictures of Freya and Axe?
