Surprise! Not that you were probably waiting – but the wait is over! On and off over the last 6 months or so, between client projects and other commitments, I’ve been working on a new website design for Exist Online – and here it is!
I rebuilt this new website from scratch – new website design and new code. I had designed and created the previous website around early 2009 – so I think a new design was well overdue!
Other than the usual updates to my Portfolio section, it had been quite a while since I’d made any major updates to my previous website, so creating the new one was an interesting, exciting and educational journey for me.
I had learned a lot of new web technologies and skills since I had first built my website in early 2009, so it was great to finally use some of my new found skills for myself, and not just for my clients. I also tried out some new techniques on my new website, which I potentially plan to use for some of my client projects too – so I guess you could say that my new website was a bit of a “guinea pig”.
Nonetheless, I believe my new website is a big improvement on my previous website:
- with the obvious addition of the Blog section from which you’re reading this article now,
- the better structuring and layout of the Portfolio section,
- the improved Get a Quote form and individual quote forms accessible via the Home page.
- and naturally, the more attractive website design overall,
- and last but not least, the website is built on WordPress!
Along with the release of my new website, I look forward to taking on new projects, challenging myself, meeting and helping new people and businesses succeed, along with whatever the future holds for me and Exist Online.
