Despite the Evidence, I Have Not Lost My Mind
In other words, there is method in my madness.
One of the challenges of operating this website and using it as a way to highlight the design work I do is figuring out how to increase traffic. To this day, quite a bit of my traffic is from visitors who come for the Portugal content. That's great and there will always be a place in my heart for the role that Portugal played in the development of where I am right now, but it doesn't do much in furthering my goal to find work as a freelance graphic/applied designer.
What I need to do is generate content that fills a niche and allows me to develop my editing skills and add quality pieces to my portfolio. Shopping carts are one way to do this. A weird way, granted, but a way nonetheless. At least there is conceptual focus, which is helpful.
