I’ve been exploring the general topic of DIY for my upcoming dissertation, which for the moment I’m keeping broad. This enables me to look at new things – particularly in the digital realm, such as coding. I tried out Code Academy a couple months back, but have recently been using Dash by General Assembly. Both have a similar way of introducing you to HTML and CSS, but Dash seemed more inviting because their “programme” leads specifically towards developing a Tumblr theme. Whilst web design has always intrigued me, it is a huge, huge area and so putting together a Tumblr theme seems like a manageable chunk that I can work towards.
