Lately, things have gone full circle.
In the last year-and-a-bit, I have become to like working with WordPress. Initially, I worked with the backend, and made minimal changes to existing templates, (such as this one). That said, the tides have turned.
With the advent of HTML5 and CSS3, a whole new range of opportunities have come into view. Tired of dealing with the dis-satisfaction with other people’s templates, I started puttering around.
I did some research, and discovered BlankSlate, a style free theme, with nearly endless possibilities. Between both BlankSlate and WordPress being 100% friendly to HTML5 and CSS3, I was off and running.
Now, my only limitation is a lack of understanding when it comes to jQuery. Over the next few weeks, I will be developing an understanding of this amazing framework.
Furthermore, I have friends who are absolutely awesome. You see, I don’t own an iPhone, iPad, or any tablet/mobile device. While I was programming the CSS, making the template for http://mikegcs.com, I was continuously asking one particular friend to check it on his iPhone. He was super helpful along the way, and gave some helpful suggestions, helping me to ease into my first 2 Responsive Web Designs.
On that note, RWD is absolutely AWESOME!! I love it!
And now, I think I will end this aimless post, which served to prove that I am a complete nerd.
Off I go to read more, and play with jQuery and BootStrap,should everything go according to plan.
