Bio

I am a Freelance Graphic Design trying to get back into webdesign after more than a decade of not doing it. Mobile did not exist the last time I did this, no PHP only HTML and Java (No CSS either, if you wanted to change something before you had to change it on every page!) and those have changed drastically too! I am trying to start a few projects, mostly for fun, but you never know!

WordPress Origin Story

When I started designing for the web I hand coded everything in NotePad. Then I was introduced to NetObjects Fusion 2.0 and found it to be so much quicker and could produce the sites and manage them easier. WYSIWYG is a GREAT idea! Now that I am trying to get back into webdesign I have been looking around for a new solution, especially something to help me learn the new languages and changes to the code. I have tried several different editors and found that no matter what I did, I was still opening the pages in NotePad and tweaking the code to make it look presentable. I even tried some of those online builder that are always advertised and found that they had many limits. Then I heard about WordPress from a friend and decided to try it out. There is some learning curve, but not much! And I am really enjoying how easily and quickly I can make a site.
