I code websites for a living. So it’s not a surprise that I hear the question from a lot of people, “So I’m thinking about redesigning my website, what do you think of . . . ?” How people finish that question ranges from color preferences to the benefits of certain technical features. On occasion I offer my advise or my opinion if it’s something I feel strongly about, but the majority of the time my answer is, “I don’t know, have you looked at your analytics?”
Our family enjoys backpacking. For a recent trip we felt it was important that our 2 (nearly 3) year old son begin to carry a few of his own supplies. But we ran into a snag; it’s difficult to find a “real” backpack for a toddler. I checked online for toddler hiking backpacks but was surprised to find nothing. There are plenty of backpacks to carry a toddler in or backpacks made for toddlers to carry, but all were geared for books or school. We needed something with multiple pockets, durable and flexible if he was going to do any hiking with it.
