    so i have run into a BUNCH of problems, over the past 2 months i have been limiting myself so much and there’s a quote saying limits help us become more creative with what is available to us. so with that in mind i have limited myself with website design, i have learned so much from it, I have just started using reset css files, and i gotta tell you I love it! sure its a little more loading time and takes a little while to kind of get used to but in the long run, it saves so much time! i was astonished when i started using them to know how much time it had cut out of the dev. process and actuially putting my layouts together, its made it a lot more Seamless and a lot less painful. Just wanted my introduction to thank Chris for this. He has done a Fantastic Job with his work, with a full time Job, then his side projects, Article writing, Screencasts, searching for (links of interest) and above all still replying to form posts.

    so ive run into a problem with wordpress, i have finally opened up my horizons to wordpress, and for starters, man this is confusing. ive watched all videos from chris about the wordpress designing and all, but really having a hard time, i tried using his examples to a re-design for my port folio and this is how it came out.. –

    Compared to:

    There’s a BIG difference.

    maybe i just dont know how to use it properly, or i need to find better ways of use. but i dont know , maybe its just me, and i need to learn more. the reason i wanted to start the wordpress thing was because i wanted to see if i could do it on my own personal portfolio before doing it on a clients website, just so its safe you know? but from original theme (of my website) compared to the wordpress re made one, the wordpress one is a lot uglyer. any suggestions?

    i was also wondering, is it considered stealing if you download a theme and use your own images for it? and also could you still sell a website for the same ammount with a theme / design you made with a pre-made wordpress theme?

    PS. i have gotten this error message about 4 times while writing this post.. anyone know why this is?
