I’m getting into the web design game, so this is my website. I’m loving it so far, WordPress is really easy to set up and I’ve already learned how to code a theme all by myself. You can look for that here in the upcoming days.
Other than that, my days have been pretty filled with strange new happenings and great friends. I’ll be posting more and more about all of that in the near future too, as I have more time but like I said, WordPress is keeping me really busy. That’s it for now, but please check back often as I keep making updates to this page.
Why am I getting into web design, you might ask? Well, it’s a fun challenge and something completely new to me. I’ve got to say, it’s been a long time coming, but I’ve finally found out that it’s fun, it’s not really that time intensive and you can make a little money at it too. Pretty sweet deal, right?
I’m leaning toward WordPress as my content management system of choice. WordPress is ideal because it’s really user friendly, it’s popular and it’s got a lot of options. That makes it my leader in the clubhouse, so to speak.
So, what kind of stuff am I thinking about? Well, I was really interested in a few of these.
I was browsing a collection of Video Themes that I think could really help make a good site great, you know? Beatrix is a well designed site, simple and almost minimalist in style. I think I’d like to try my hand at designing something like that.
And if I want to add an eCommerce store, WooCommerce is a good option, which I learned by looking at some of the best WordPress WooCommerce themes.
If I decide to go parallax, which I doubt I’ll do because I think parallax looks dumb, but there are some examples here: WordPress Parallax Themes that don’t make me go completely insane thinking about how dumb parallax is. Beauty is a pretty nice looking theme, but there are a lot of really solid options around, so who knows what I’ll end up opting for.
There are also plenty of WordPress Magazine Themes and WordPress Personal Blog Themes that can help me to branch out from what I’ve been doing, which is completely different.
And then again, maybe I go with a WordPress Portfolio Theme, maybe one that’s actually a WordPress Minimalist Theme. The choices are endless.
