For the 432nd time in the last 10 years, I’ve decided that I don’t need to have separate websites for my photography, freelance development work, and personal blog.
I’d always thought I should keep work and personal stuff well separated, now that I’m older and wiser, I realise that I should keep it together as they’re both very much connected.
I’ve been really enjoying the work of photographer Jeremy Cowart of late, you should check it out, and one thing that he does that I’m a fan of is not only share his work, but also share things going on in his life and with his family, you can often see how the two influence each other.
So what does that mean for the website here?
Expect to see a whole load of different focal points, I work in a few different spaces, I’m also involved in the administration of a football club, I love tech stuff, I play video games, I’m a Dad, I’m a husband, there’s no end to the sort of stuff I can publish here!
I have a love/hate relationship with building websites. I love building websites for other people, especially when they know what they want. When it comes to building one for myself, ugh, it’s the worst.
After getting my remote pilots license, I figured I better get something together to show that I’m available for hire, the sort of work I do, and some examples of what I’ve done already, so of course, I’m building a website for myself.
In reality, it should be pretty easy to put it together, but of course, it’s not.
When it comes to making decisions as to what element to put where, what to include, what to leave out, and all the other sorts of questions a web designer/developer would ask to get them moving on a project, I just cannot settle on any answers.
Not 100% sure how to progress, I guess I’m probably best off throwing something/anything on the website and then refining it a little later on…it doesn’t need to be perfect at launch!
