No where, really, I have just been busy. I have been creating a new brand for myself: Ocala Web Designer. You like?
I figured that JessePearson.net didn’t really say, “I build websites!” so, I decided to get another domain name and create a new site. I wanted something dark and grungy, yet clean and slick. Since I am my biggest critic, I can say that I am not 100% happy with it, I just feel like there is something off about it and can’t quite put my finger on it. It is fine, though, I am sure I will do a re-design in my downtime.
I am hoping to go live today, I just need to finish up the content on a couple of the pages and maybe do a little more tweaking and it will be complete.
The more poor designs and writing skills hurt my head. Seriously, who puts 3000+ words into a single paragraph to describe a designer’s responsibilities? Half of the time you read the responsibilities and you, being the web educated person you are, know that the person writing the job description has absolutely no clue what they are talking about.
Do professionals use Dreamweaver? Do they even teach it in school? I personally haven’t touched it since DW4, which was before Adobe pulled a Highlander move on Macromedia and absorbed its powers.
Anyway, on to some other news. I decided to create another website that says simply what I am and what I can offer for you. Ready? It’s http://ocalawebdesigner.com. I figured it couldn’t be any more simple than that, Ocala Web Designer. Now I am off to create the design for that, as well as, some signs and business cards for my brother and I.
