In the late 1990’s, I got my very first desktop PC. It was the start of a passion for web design and online marketing. Back then, when the web was still newish to the mainstream, and web design was basic and somewhat limited. A good site usually was something that had bright, over the top colours and animated gifs everywhere.
I taught myself HTML online from as many different sources as possible, using notepad on my PC to hand code all my experimental designs. I must admit I made some pretty bizarre creations back then, but luckily did not put them online!
As the web standards evolved, so did my own level of education and skill. The advent of WordPress, albeit mainly as a blog system back then, showed me the possibilities that were coming.
As soon as the WordPress codex was ready for it, I started using it to create content management systems. There were other “more suitable” systems out there, such as Joomla and Drupal, but there simply wasn’t anything quite as user friendly for my needs as WordPress.
Now I use WordPress for a majority of my client projects, and for my own websites. I still code a few sites in HTML and CSS, but now use Dreamweaver to do that rather than Notepad.
Design and creation has always been my passion, and I am thankful that my chosen line of work gives me the opportunity to share this passion with others through my work.
