Staying up late is a bad idea. I stayed up really late and was very unproductive as a result. In any case, I've been trying to get the blog together at adrianmcli.com. I think it's acceptable, and even a pretty good idea to start with a pre-made template of what you want your site to look like. However, I think it's also important to customize it in such a way that you create a rather unique identity.
I found the site niice.co, which is an image search engine. It's very cool, because its stated purpose is to allow you to create "moodboards" and build inspiration from images that already exist out there. I'll have to think about how I can use this to turn it into something I can do daily to build up my design "taste".
