Thinking about my dream of creating a website through the lens of 2013, I decided it would be good to focus on my love for social media, networking, and photography. The site will serve as a central hub for me on the web and be an additional platform to share my thoughts about digital life and the vast world of communication. To accomplish this goal, I enrolled at the School of Visual Concepts (SVC) where I learned about copy writing in 2012. What drew me back to the school was its commitment to practical education and gritty real world vibe which made it feel accessible.
Despite not having touched HTML since I was an 8th grader at Sagahlie Middle School – formally Sagahlie Jr. High School, the language felt oddly familiar and was easy to pick up. After a month of developing the site, I’m excited to hit publish later this week! I’m also looking forward to continuing to learn more about HTML and other coding languages.
I never imagined myself wanting to learn more about computer languages but I’m slowly finding I actually enjoy the challenge of connecting the various pieces of code and appreciate the way it connects people with information. It’s not the path I’d envisioned taking but like most things in life, it’s sometimes better to take the long way around and enjoy the sights.
