A Blog Not Limited

to web design, standards & semantics

And So It Begins

This is my first blog post on my first blog (isn't that special?).

I set up an account with ExpressionEngine in March 2008, and I am finally getting off my lazy ass to make this thing a reality.

The reasons for the delay are many, foremost of which is the fact that I haven't yet come up with a visual design. I know what I want, but I'm not to sure how to get there.

But after some prodding from my good friends Ian and Jen, I decided that the visual part shouldn't hold me back. Plus, what I'm best at is semantic XHTML and kick-ass CSS … might as well start there.

So, as of this posting, my blog is still using the default ExpressionEngine templates and CSS. I haven't made any decisions about categories or functionality. And I still need to get the basic ExpressionEngine foundation configured for my purposes.

Hell, I haven't even decided what sorts of topics I will blog about. Of course web design and standards will be mainstays, but I'm toying with the idea of a fair amount of "personal" topics, including my ridiculously funny foray into online dating.

However, I have decided on a blog name and "tagline," which I'm rather pleased with at this point (gotta start somewhere).

Still, there is much to do. But I'm eager to see how things go.

The Coolest Person I Know

Emily Lewis

Yeah, that would be me: .

I'm a freelance web designer of the standardista variety, which means I get excited about things like valid POSH, microformats and accessibility. I ply my trade from my one-person design studio in Albuquerque, New Mexico 87106 USA.

A Blog Not Limited is my personal blog where I pontificate about web design, web standards, semantics and whatever else strikes my fancy. Head on over to Emily Lewis Design if you'd like to see my work or, even better, hire me.
