As you may have noticed, I don’t update this blog very often. Just to keep it a bit alive, I’m making a minor blog post on what’s going to happen in the next few months or so.
First of all I have a few modifications to the current site to make. For startes, the home page will be changed from the “Hi my name is Paul” to a simple jQuery slider showcasing my work.
I’ll also redesign the comment section so it doesn’t look botched. I think it’s partly because of the lack of avatars.
Another item on my list is rethinking my meta data bar on the right of the posts. The problem with that section is that it takes a lot of space, but it displays little to no content. Moving his section to the bottom of the post is a way smarter way to display the information. I’ll either use the new extra space to add relevant blog information like tags or categories, or simply widen the blog post containers.
I’d also really like to use this blog for more or less microblogging. Like posting excerpts of works in progress, behind the scenes of photo projects, stuff that inspires me, stuff like that. I really need write more.
I’ve also been thinking of separating my photography from the web development and design. Set up a second blog, portfolio, page. A sub domain dedicated to photography. These days my photography is a lot more active than my web development. Mostly because I have less time for web, and sometimes require photographs for University projects. Oh, did I mention I was in University doing a B.A. in Graphic Design? Yeah, I am! Anyway, one of my favorite aspects of photography blogs are the occasional behind the scenes photographs and the very seldom lighting diagrams. That’s the kind of thing I’d like to post on this possible future blog. I’m still not sure about it though. Like I said, I should fix this one first, then possibly migrate to another.
I also have quite a few personal projects I’d like to share, but I don’t have time to work on them, even less write about them.
One of them is my personal bookmarking site that I’d like to develop for myself called Inspire. I’ve tried to use similar sites such as ZooTool, which was beautifully made and worked extemely well, but felt a bit too bulky. I love FFFFound, but since I lack an account, I can’t use it the way I would like. I think making my own would solve both problems!
I also have a few other blogs posts in the making worth mentioning, I have been reading A Book Apart’s HTML5 for Web Designers, CSS3 for Web Designers and The Elements of Content Strategy and I’m planning to review them, so stay tuned for that.
Last, but not least, writing blog posts is a great way to practice my English and my general typing speed and accuracy, so I should definitely do it more.
I’ll keep in touch on Twitter (and sometimes Google+). Have a good one!
