After 10 months of focus I'm starting to think this Drupal Stuff is starting to make sense. My ProvisoEast72.org project took me a couple of months to get it to the point where I was happy with it.
My MadameWiladina.com took 5 months to get online (there were a great many detours before I could get that site live).
Then I had cwps.us that I did in about 3 days (but I just basically went from a static site to a dynamic site, the hardest aspect was figuring out the theme).
My latest project was a "dress rehersal" which I completed in 4 days (which is very good for me). It had a fair amount of complexity from customizing the theme to creating several content types along with views to present the pages. I also installed the fullcalendar module to make a calendar available for the events she is hosting. What amazed me most was how well the site came together.
There were a couple of things that gave me some difficulties but I was able to resolve them either through my own enginuity or finding another module that would give me the desired result.
So far I have had nothing but positive feedback about how well it has turned out.
Maybe I am getting a handle of this Drupal Stuff...
