A good read from Treehouse… these are also things I wish I knew before I started making websites.
For a while now, I’ve been wanting to set up a website for myself. Every time I create an account somewhere, there’s an input where I can enter a link to my website, and every time, I leave this field blank. Why? Because I’ve never taken the time to set up a website for myself. This is going to change starting now.
If you click on the picture (or if you have good eyes), you can see that I’ve had this domain since July 3rd, 2007. Over four years, and I still have never gotten this site up and running. I’ve done several concepts, and had even coded a few custom blog/CMS systems for personal use, but never did anything with them. Perhaps I’ll look for all of my old site mockups and post them at some point.
For now, though, I’ll just inform you about the types of posts I’ll likely create on this website. I’ll post about my endeavors with my web server, which includes posts on installing debian, nginx, mysql, php and others, as well as endeavors with web design and development. As a college student, I try to find new ways to make food less, well, boring. I’m tired of eating Ramen at least once a day, and I like to try to concoct recipes – I’ll probably post those. I also like to post about the things that happen to me – be it related to school, something personal, etc.
I haven’t created my custom template for wordpress yet, but since I’m starting to post, I’ll likely be motivated to create one. I hope.
That’s about it for now, I think. Thanks for reading!
