Blog Inauguration

Under: General Tags:

Welcome everyone to my new personal website. It’s my online representation, so I’ve worked long and hard to make it as accurate as possible. The beauty of the Internet is in the unlimited space provided for every individual to do whatever he or she wants, so I’m taking advantage of my right as a member of the world wide web and am using my space to communicate my ideas, thoughts, and above all, designs.

As a freelance web designer, it’s vital to stay connected to the latest developments from all corners of the Internet, and that is precisely what I plan to be doing via this website.

The Blog section of the website will act as my testing lab where I explore all of the different areas in the world of technology and design. I’ve been learning so much from the open-source community over the years, and I feel that by opening my channel of communication in the subject, I would be able to share some of my knowledge, and to accelerate my learning process. Expect fresh content frequently, and feel free to comment with feedback and opinions.

The About Me section is dedicated to those of you interested to find out who I am, both on a professional as well as a personal level. You’ll find access to my updated CV, as will as an expanded list of tools and skills that I use in my work.

Web design is what I do, and if you’re interested in hiring me for a project or website, check out the Services page where you can see a full list of the services I offer, the general procedure for a given project, as well as the Get a quote form, which asks you the quick questions whose answers would be enough for me to make you a full proposal.

Most importantly, if you would like to see my theory put to practice, you can visit the Portfolio page where you will find a selection of previous works. For each website, you’ll see a brief description as well as the skills and tools used in building it. You can see the live version of each website, or view the screen captures.

Finally, I’ve dedicated the Media section to all of the work I’ve done in the multimedia realm. Whether during my college years, when I put together some video-editing projects, or professionally as a TV host, you’ll find brief information and samples of work on that page.

With the new website comes my new journey in the world of design and technology. The Internet has just gotten even bigger, and we have all joined the community of the free world.

Congratulations, It’s so cool your new site style, I’ve added it to follow you :D. Only one suggestion, I’d add a plugin to let your followers follow the replies by mail. This plugin is a good way to promote more comments in your blog ;)

Congratulations on the new portfolio website, I like the fact that your blog is going to be a web designer blog. Although I am not a designer myself (nor planning to be) I find it quite interesting and useful to learn about web design and development. Open source is definitely the way to go, keep it up!
