New Website is Live!
I’m very happy to announce the launching of my new portfolio and blog website. I’ve put a lot of thought and effort in to the site and trying to make it as user friendly as possible while trying to reflect myself as well (it is a personal site after all). As some may know, a website is never finished, so I definitely am always going to try and keep improving the site and contributing to the blog regularly. When I decided to completely remake my site, I had a few goals in mind while developing it that I would like to share.
Goals while building the website
While building the website, first and foremost, I wanted the site to be responsive. For anyone may not know exactly what it means to be responsive, basically it means that the website is going to adjust the layout based on the screen size you are using to visit the website. For example, if you start to shrink your browser slowly while on my website, you will see it adjust as it gets smaller. The purpose of this is so it’s going to look good no matter who is viewing it, whether it be on a desktop, smart phone or tablet.
Another goal of mine was to show splashes of my own personality throughout the site. I’ve seen so many impersonal websites and I just didn’t want that for mine. I’ll most likely keep thinking of ways to do this as the site grows, but I’m hoping this shines most in the writing in my blog. I want to write articles that are interesting and entertaining, not bland and boring.
Goals for the future
My main goal for the website moving forward is to keep my portfolio section up to date with all of the projects I’ve been working on, as well as writing articles frequently. As I do more of both of these, I’m hoping to think of new ways to help improve my site, whether it be small design changes or adding in more functionality to the site. My overall goal is to just simply be more involved and a part of the web community. I feel like to be the best developer, designer, or whatever your skill is, it’s important to be involved to keep learning and developing your skill.
I’m always open to criticism and suggestions to my site in order to help it be a better environment. Feel free to shoot me an email or write a comment if you ever come across any. Thanks for taking the time to read my first blog post on the site! Many more to come..
