After theme research,, operational

During the past few weeks, I have spent quite a few hours researching free and commercial themes and developer frameworks for the WordPress content management system. I ended up coming full circle and using the default Twenty Eleven theme on both of my websites for now, even though it’s not exactly the theme I want. However, one of its primary advantages, at least as far as I’m concerned, is that it’s mobile-ready. I found other themes that I liked, including Premium Pixels’ Repro theme, but in most cases, they don’t seem mobile-ready. I’m willing to trade some features and looks for a mobile-friendly site, particularly since I’m one of those people who frequently visits websites on my smart phone.

The good news is that I’ve reconfigured and, setting up e-mail accounts, among other things, and both of those sites are now online and operational. I’m not completely satisfied with how they look, but you’ve got to start somewhere, right? The Twenty Eleven theme has the basic features I need, but I want to change the layout, art, and colors in order to appropriately highlight our content and also make the sites look unique.

Our next step is to start regularly posting content, while learning how to customize the Twenty Eleven themeā€”or build our own.

Site upgraded with photos, services

I spent a few hours customizing my site today, adding an About Me page, header photos, and several new services, including an e-mail subscription form, Share This buttons, and a section for my latest Twitter posts.

My next step is to add a contact form.

Thanks again for visiting and let me know if I can assist you in any way.

Welcome to my new website

Thank you for visiting my revamped website. It replaces my previous site, which I developed as I learned HTML and CSS. Building that site was fun and it provided me with a great experience, but I have to admit it wasn’t very appealing or well-built.

I am using WordPress for this replacement site, and I hope it looks and works better.

I hope to use this site to provide information on my current projects, display a portfolio of my previous work, and provide information about myself for those who might be interested in hiring me for future business.

I will add more information as I have time.

Thank you for visiting, and please come back.
