I remembered why I stopped this very same WordPress book months ago when I had a free ebook version of it. In the 5th chapter, there’s no indication that they are telling you about what the theme will look like. They say to check out the static theme and then say how the theme should look like the page examples. Of course they don’t look the same as what I’m given in the static theme! So this time I cranked through it and then in the next chapter it shows that they were previously showing the finished theme. Confusing? They said check out the static theme which was the barebones. I don’t know if I’m more confused or you’re more confused reading it. It was confusion all around. However Chapter 6 is still awesome and goes back to where it should of been.
I’ve been reading up a lot on branding and I’ve come to the conclusion its a beast. I know a lot of you just rolled your eyes and say “well Duh!”, but I just thought I’d point that out.
I came across an article on LinkedIn about people waking up at 5am. See Full Article Here. It goes on to say that you don’t have to be up at 5am in order to make the most of your life. You just have to get up and do what you can at your level. My thoughts? Nobody is saying you have to wake up at 5am! However, the most successful people follow that mantra and are able to get a lot more done. Therefore, they are successful. Nobody is forcing you to wake up at 5am, nobody is forcing you to follow the path successful people did but if your ambition is to become that kind of great then wake up! I myself also think that if you put in that extra time at the end of the day, you could make it work. There is something about the peace of 5am though.
What I learned today:
Keep on reading if things still seem confusing.
