Recognising When To Move To A New Project

Building your own websites is tough. You’ll never be happy with it, you’ll constantly be updating it to keep up with technology and fashion, and by the time you’ve finished it you’ll want to start all over again.
I can associate with her words (especially the part about wanting to start all over again). There comes a time when you need to recognise that you’ve accomplished most of what you wanted to achieve with your website. You’ll never be entirely happy with it, and sure, there will be tweaks and updates that you’ll still want/need to do, but for the most part, the website will be done.
I think I’ve reached that stage with this site and WordPress theme. I’ve still got some additional features and functionality that I want to add, but for now, the site is serving its purpose and it’s time to move on to another project.
Regarding the new project, I was planning to start it in the New Year, and I may still, but I’ve got some time off over the Christmas period, so I may make a start on it early than planned. Or, I may continue messing around with the HTML5 canvas element — sometimes I just like to create fun stuff.
