Hello world!

I think it’s quite fitting as a web designer and developer that my first post on this site keeps the title “Hello world!”; the synonymous first message that every developer outputs when starting out for those of you don’t know (and also the default post title that comes when starting a new WordPress project).

I’ve never been one for blogging, and although I create websites for others, I haven’t had my own web presence in quite some time. To remedy that, I’ve put aside the need for things to be “perfect” or the “what tech stack should I use” question, which often lead to procrastination, and have instead decided to put this site out into the world quickly.

It’s not a bad start. I’ve chosen WordPress as the platform, as it’s one of the best content management systems out there and the main intention of this site is to get me writing more often. WordPress is the obvious choice for that.

It’s also given me a chance to really try out the new Full Site Editing capabilities that have come about in the recent release of 5.9. This site is designed in the Site Editor, using only the base Twenty-Twenty Two theme, and I’m pretty pleased with it. It’s enabled me to be able to put out a good looking website in practically no time and it suits my goals for this perfectly.

This is my personal website, where I will write about the things that interest me and try out things that might not work in the context of professionally focused site. It’s mainly for myself, but if anyone else finds anything of use here that’s great 🙂

Let’s see if I stick to writing as regularly as I would like to!
