Need to redesign/rebuild site, not sure where to start

Some background: I have some very basic knowledge of web dev and building sites for clients, but they’ve almost always started from a theme template and just required a few changes.

I’m at a point now where [my niche site]( about video game music composition needs a serious refresh, and I’m not sure where to start.

The entire web dev process is pretty overwhelming to me. I go back and forth between going through all the hassle of designing something in Figma and then implementing it in GeneratePress + Generateblocks (my current theme stack), or just using some stock theme.

And then I consider maybe rebuilding the whole thing in another theme, or even another framework like Webflow, but then that’s another huge undertaking.

I guess I’m just looking for advice on where to start any any best practices you all might have for a total refresh like this.

Thanks in advance.

  1. I think you’re overthinking things. Your site is “just” a regular blog. No need for anything complex. Pick a good multipurpose theme and get stuck in. A good way to start is to setup LocalWP and just start fleshing out ideas.
