Rebirth

If you’ve visited my website lately, you may have noticed some changes taking place. I have been reading a lot of books on HTML, CSS, and general web design. Although I only work on my website as a hobby at this point, I can’t tell you how much fun I’ve been having over the last year creating what I have now.

I ultimately want to revamp my altogether and give it a new look. As you can see, for example, in photography portfolio, there have been some errors that I’m trying to correct. I am test driving some photography plugins to see which looks the best. I am also downloading Artisteer as we speak so that I can create my own unique template for my site. If it doesn’t exist, that I must invent it!

Speaking of learning and websites, I’m sure that a lot of people would love to have and operate their own websites for either personal or professional purposes. I have been fortunate enough to have gotten a lot of support from others who have done it when creating mine, and I’d love to help other people get their blogs/websites going.

Feel free to e-mail with any questions. I am still learning, but love to share whatever I read or hear.

“My Resume” Page Update

I have formatted my resume in HTML coding. Now when you click on certain keywords, such as my employers and colleges, they bring you to those respective websites. For example, if you want to know more about my current organization, BronxWorks, you can now click on it and a link will bring you to the agency’s website. I want this site to be very interactive. Part of that is allowing the employer to have a little background about who I am as a person and what kinds of experience I have. I feel that there are certain things that do not come across on a “flat” resume or even a cover letter. I believe in showing rather than telling.

Of course, as always, any feedback you have is welcome!
