We took this video a few weeks ago when it was still uncertain how much we'd all be impacted by coronavirus. Fast forward a few weeks and it feels so long ago as many of us now live with heightened anxiety levels, lockdowns, toilet paper frenzies and far too much selfish apathy at all ages. But we hope between checking social media and the news, figuring out how to stay sane at home for an indefinite period and staying healthy, images and videos like this will come as a pleasant, albeit brief, distraction.
Until next time, continue to practice social distancing, sleep well, eat well, limit the number of times you check the news, and remember to stay cautiously positive that it will be over in the not-too-distant future.
Yesterday I did a number of short clips of my day spent working on things like creating our own social media links page, like the ones you see used in Instagram bios. We did sign-up for one of these services last week, but within the first week the service was down and due to timezones, we realized after it was down for hours. Wanting to avoid that in future or at least have some control over it, we decided to create our own version and I did it using CSS Grid, PHP and JSON, so that it's easy to update in future.
We hope to be posting more of these vlog-style videos to supplement the blog part of our website. We hope you enjoy them!
