Well after a big gap of not having my own website, blog or portfolio … here I am. You might be wondering why I didn’t have one for so long and to be frank I got caught in the never-ending loop of “design it, code it, then hate it and start again”, It was really causing me bother.
My passion lies in developing things, I love coding something “my way” I was recently made Senior web developer at a Glasgow agency called The Shine Agency. In my role I face many challenges from the clients I work with at Shine then it got me thinking. The biggest challenge I had yet to face was my own website. I wanted a platform that I can use to publish my thoughts on design and coding as well as holding my portfolio.
Right from the get go, one thing I didn’t want to use on this project was creating a site based off a front-end html framework. Normally I would just use bootstrap but it’s far to heavy for just a portfolio(I’m too lazy to strip it back).
I wanted a clean design with a couple of bells and whistles with a large focus on type that’s clean and super easy to read.
For the back-end. I choose WordPress as it’s a platform I have many years of experience working with and I felt it was right for me.
The next step for myself will be to create a portfolio section and add a few projects.
Thank you for taking the time to read my ramblings on and if you need my help with anything feel free to get in touch!
