Launch Home # 3
After much deliberation, I finally settled on a new Homepage! Somehow I ended up even more minimalistic than ever before. But now there's interactions! Ah, so fancy, much new, great joy. And a new highlight to freelancing!#webdesign
So, despite my last blog's goals for a new homepage, it hasn't happened ... yet. But. It is on it's way.
I started the popular goal of #100daysofcode. The rules are pretty straight forward.
1. Code minimum an hour every day for the next 100 days.
2. Tweet your progress every day with the #100DaysOfCode hashtag.
The 2nd part is not only to keep you to your word but great marketing on their part. If I feel the need to keep my twitter followers updated, I will code for an hour a day and tweet about it. Their hashtag gets shared everyday, people like it, people share it, getting their own twitter profiles more attention, and so on. And I will admit, it has worked. If not for the pure fact that people on twitter can be really nice and I like positive reinforcement. I also like spreading that positive feeling, following the #100daysofcode twitter bot (or what I assume is a bot), @100xcode, I get to see others progress and like their tweets. Because I genuinely love to see people learning things they're excited about.
I have been tinkering with the Homepage a tad. The main reason I'm stuck is my desire to not look like everyone else. Though there is a benefit in the internet "losing it's creativity". Everyone knows where to click for what. So while I do want my website to be easy to navigate, I also want it to be unique in some sort of way.
Normally I don't like to follow trends but since the mouse hover animation isn't useful on phones, I'm drawn to the trend of scroll animation. I'm not talking about 1 page websites. I reallllly dislike 1 page websites. But since I'm not skilled in any sort of scroll animation whatsoever, I'm stuck with the homepage living in the draft section. This is where I'm currently at:
