It’s only a button…
Just push it already!
Such a small thing. But so much larger in my mind!
The cat got walking…
For the last few months (actually more than a year by now!) I’ve been working on the website for my company. From the gleam in my eye, through the mind of the designer (my good friend Jornt
. You should hire him, he does great work!), into the reality of cyberspace.
Discussions logo, lay-out, technical issues. Implementation. The need to write.
Especially the latter is so difficult! Which is silly. When writing for my book I can churn out two chapters per day. A blog post like this normally takes about 20 minutes (plus 10 minutes to find a picture and get everything online, but the writing itself is easy). But the number of evenings I’ve spent staring at an empty screen… ”Can’t screw this up. This is for real!”
Something like that is never done. At some point however… At some time it’s done enough.
That time is now.
Almost all of the important text is written. And I’ll be forgiven for the stuff that’s not on there yet. I’ll be forgiven for the improvements that still need to be done.
It’s funny how things that are important to you seem so much bigger. I’m fully aware that just about everybody else will go “what’s the fuss about?”. But just think back to that one -big thing- that you had to do. In public. And you might understand why this is just a tiny bit scary for me…
I could hide a bit further. Postpone for a few more days. But let’s be realistic, it’s not going to change overly much, no matter how much more I tweak
the text. No matter how much more I twist
At some point you have to bite the bullet, dive into the deep end, show the world what you’re made of (or at least, show the world what you made).
So I pushed the button. And with that the website went officially live (unofficially it could already be found for weeks, but let’s not dwell on that). The first blog-post was posted. It was open for the public.
It was done!
And thus, with appropriate pride I present you the website of Black Cat’s Walk.
Feedback is appreciated. But please be kind!
