Changes are Brewing (May 8, 2020)

Hey guys! It’s been a while since I’ve made a proper post, and that was for a few reasons.

For one, I’ve been really busy and still am really busy with school. For two, I’ve been taking more time to improve my mental state. And three, this site lost its personal touch from me I felt like. What I mean when I say that is I feel like the last time I did an overhaul, I made it too corporate. The site wasn’t mine, it was that of my company and business.

I think I’ve fixed that now, with these recent changes, which are:

  1. New theme that puts me at the forefront, clearly indicating that the site is mine and not that of my company.
  2. New color scheme to reflect colors I actually like.
  3. New updated picture of me that reflects my professionalism as well as changes as a teenager.
  4. Social links update.
  5. More options for contact.
  6. Updated mailing list sign up.
  7. (Totally optional) donation information for those who would like to further support my work.
  8. New “Hire Me” page that highlights the services that I offer and professional skills so that prospective clients can inquire about those services.

That’s pretty much all I did and it’s already feeling more like me and I’m falling in love with blogging again.

Finally, I just want to take a second to thank each and every one of you for your support and the privilege to interact with you all. Whether it’s a comment, a reply to a Tweet, a Twitter DM, or a “Contact Me” submission, you all make me feel great and give me a sense of pride about my work. And I really appreciate that.

Until next time,

-Derek
