Once you’ve started to get SharePoint around your head a bit, you will want to make your site look prettier. It’s sometimes hard to justify to your bosses what you’ve been doing all day long when you’ve been working on SharePoint the whole day – it may not look like you’ve done much right? It’s even harder when the bosses have no idea how SharePoint works, they think you’ve been messing around all day. People don’t understand how long it takes to do certain things.
If that happens, I hope this blog post will help you justify that. I’ve been redesigning the Lets Collaborate website yet again – I get bored with it so easily. 🙂 Five site pages took me nearly 8 hours to do, 5 site pages! And I’ve been doing SharePoint full-time for 7 years this year! And this is just done using PowerPoint, not even code anywhere. And I’m not finished. So don’t be disheartened if things are taking you a while, that’s just how it goes. Especially when you need to do the pretty stuff. Just remember, before you get to the pretty stuff, you have to build the backbone first, your lists and libraries.
