My New Home! So Fancy!

June 10, 2017

Welcome to my new place on the internet. After a couple of months (I think?) of coding and testing, and coding and testing my custom WordPress theme, I’ve finally made the switch. Not only did I switch themes, I’ve gotten myself a new domain, if you haven’t noticed yet. It’s and don’t you think that’s so fancy?! Like, seriously, I was surprised it was sold for a cheaper than reasonable price.

With a rather popular first name, I was convinced it was fruitless to find a fitting, personal domain without an extra letter or two (or 8, as with my previous domain). When I was randomly browsing newly released top level domains (my idea of shopping), I saw .pro was made available for the public. It was only meant for professionals at one time.

You could imagine the joy and excitement I felt when I found that my first name .pro was available! Gone are the days when I had to limit my tweets to make room for my website. Behold, a glorious season has come. And with it, comes my first ever, fully customised WordPress theme.

As you can see, when you go to my homepage and scroll down, you will notice my fancy parallax (which isn’t technically mine, as it’s code I just copied from the generous guys at stackoverflow) as well as my beautiful javaScript scrolling effects and pretty CSS. You may or may not already know, but I’m using BootStrap 3, Font Awesome and _s WordPress backbone theme. It was a lot of work but mainly because I had to do it in between shifts. Not to mention the pain and suffering that came with coding trials and errors. Oh but I’m not complaining. It’s finally here and everything else is in the past now.

I’ll have you know that before I was even done with this project, I already had the design of my sister’s web portfolio in the works and it’s very exciting, already knowing all the possibilities I will find the pleasure to experiment with. But that’s a few blocks down the road to the future.

Right here, right now, is where I am and I’m taking this time to just enjoy my first successful WordPress theme as well as the ever precious gift of salvation Jesus has for me. I’ll leave you with a truth that is so good and so rich I want to eat it and never let it leave my mind, soul and body until I see Him face to face.

Blessed is the man to whom the Lord shall not impute sin.

Romans 4:8 NKJV

Update 2019: Im not using the theme mentioned in this blog post anymore. I have switched to Rosemary by Solopine.
