I’ve found WordPress to be a solid tool for making a website seeing as it is simple and streamlined enough for me (someone with no experience making websites) to understand. However, oddly enough, although I have no experience I can tell that WordPress would be very limiting to someone with actual skill because most of it’s theme presets are incredibly boilerplate.
My boilerplate design is a parallax theme with dark colors that match one of my favorite pictures from my photo-a-days, which is the first thing you see on the page. My main goal at all times with this site is to keep it all on one page, which pretty much just meant creating blog posts and uploading my videos to Youtube to embed them in the site. It’s been hard regarding the Locative Media Project. My plan is to go out and take pictures of the locations my project involved, possibly with hyperlinks to the music/audio that would play at said locations. This is one of the few things I have yet to do with my website, we’ll see how it goes. I guess I’ll need to save something to talk about in the Final Portfolio Blog 2.
