Since SEO is a thing, and since my site would never be found easily using the terms ÔÇ£Freelance Developer FordingbridgeÔÇØ I thought I should make some changes.

Historically, IÔÇÖve never really liked the idea of WordPress because it always felt like it removed control from the developer. What IÔÇÖve discovered recently is that it doesnÔÇÖt have to. Partly because I enjoy writing about things when I discover something new, and partly because itÔÇÖs good for SEO, I have decided to write a blog of a technical nature on my own website. ItÔÇÖs nothing special, really, and maybe itÔÇÖs not fantastic looking, but I like the typing effect I made and all of it can change but these blogs remain.

IÔÇÖm not using WordPress fully. All I have actually done is to create a brand new theme, insert my own CSS and JavaScript, of course, and then implement the blogging facility. Maybe in the future IÔÇÖll add custom posts for the portfolio items although it doesnÔÇÖt need to be too user friendly; I created the original after all. And I must remove that second line of sites in the portfolio, it just looks a bit bare with just one line.

Speaking of it looking bare! If you have a requirement for a website, a web app, an iOS app, or even an Android app if you can cope with me fiddling around and learning then get in touch. I can also make web APIs using LaravelÔÇÖs Sanctum and the backend covers us for all eventualities.

One thing I will say about WordPress is that IÔÇÖve learned to quite enjoy using its features for use in creating themes. That said I tend to enjoy learning about most things; from the oddities of JavaScript when compared to another object-oriented language such as C++, to iOS. I really must get back to the iOS stuff, but chances are strong I can help you with your iOS project if you need it. IÔÇÖm dynamic like that.

It took me a little while to get this thing published, and IÔÇÖm still not entirely sure how this will work in git. I suppose, technically, the database holding things like this blog post sit still and the rest ends up in git. I will need to read up. Anyway, it is late now, so I will go. I hope this formats properly, and I must get some categories set up.

My very own technical blog. Its about time. Unfortunately this is my one and only blog post and its designed to show three at a timeIll fix it tomorrow if it looks horrendousor just write a couple more entries.
