This is not much of a post, really. More of a public confession.
I have had to search “web site or website” Every. Single. Time. I write a blog post. Seriously. I can never, never remember what the conventionally agreed-upon spelling is.* And it seems like it would be an embarrassing term for me to misspell.
Things move so quickly, and I never want to seem outdated or out of touch in what I fondly like to imagine is my area of expertise. (well, this stuff and arguing with my husband about proper log placement in the fireplace) The incredible speed with which digital styles and speech, trends and habits all change now is dizzying. These constant changes make the whole game harder and yet level the playing field. Harder, because you must constantly be learning, constantly upping your game. And yet it’s a level playing field because you can do a mid-career pivot to making websites/web sites/Web sites and within a relatively short amount of time, you can know enough to be considered an expert. (YMMV, I am still constantly learning stuff I didn’t even know I didn’t know) That is the zen of site design (or anything computer-related, really): you just have to get comfortable with never knowing it all, with having to continually change, adapt, up your game. There is always something new coming down the pike, always.
*and the generally agreed upon spelling is website. I will almost certainly, despite this post about websites, in which I use the word “website” 7 times in order to reinforce that it is spelled website, have to look up the spelling of website again. Because I won’t remember.
