So shortly before I took my injury to my foot (yeah, the bone is still fractured six months later – WTF) I started work on crafting my own custom online portfolio design and styling.
Now that my foot has at least calmed down enough to where I can sit for slightly longer periods of time without it swelling to obscene sizes, I have been working on finishing up the portfolio coding and propagating my various web pages with their appropriate content (in addition to working on The Boy Who Loved a Dragon, of course).
Recent updates include my Projects page, certain individual Project pages, and some behind-the-scenes code-tweaking and though it doesn’t seem like much, after being unable to even sit for more than an hour without my foot swelling, this is like a giant step for me (and yes, pun very much intended!).
Work is continuing for The Boy Who Loved a Dragon and Coming Home and a future post ought to detail their progress notes.
Hoping everyone’s having a good 2014,
It’s been a bit of a slow going – especially with my injured left foot (you can read about it in the Personal posts) – but it’s going!
Specifically, I have been working on a custom portfolio template to integrate into my/this WordPress theme.
Ideally, besides having a clean and simple layout, I want my portfolio to be easy-access and easy-to-browse… with easy-to-browse meaning easy to return to browsing other parts of my portfolio.
Also, I am aiming to do this without adding in a bunch of extra pages or files or code while making the content within as easy to update as possible.
So far, I have set up a working styled wireframe of what I am considering for the layout and what’s next is conclusively tackling the issue of accessibility and user friendliness.
Hopefully, that will be coming up soon in a near future update so keep your eyes peeled!
Thanks for following along,
… Dangit. These test posts seem to never end.
Okay, going to test out a thumbnail function edit… maybe.
