My first paid Drupal site

Over the past week I've been working on building, theming and tweaking a new Drupal site for a friend. It's my first paid (as in, with chocolate) Drupal-based website outside of the ones we maintain at work, and it was great to be able to put into practice some of the tips and tricks I've picked up over the past eight months or so.

I'm quite pleased with the amount of work that Drupal removes from creating a website (steep learning curve aside), and how flexible it is out of the box, without even beginning to look into the many modules that you can plug and play with the framework. I'd say the majority of the time spent working on the site has been walking my friend through, showing her how to add new content, link it all together and all that good stuff.

The site went live today but isn't quite polished, so I'll leave the link off for now. At least until I've had a chance to make all those last minute tweaks that inevitably don't show up until you leave the nice comfortable environment of Safari and Firefox and see the thing torn to pieces in Internet Explorer.
