Finally. My User Experience blog is back online in a new incarnation.
It’s been quite a while since the last update on my previous blog at WordPress.com. I stopped updating because the WordPress.com hosted platform was quite limiting, and I wanted to be able to “play” with my blog as a way of practicing my front-end coding skills.
After watching a lot of Chris Coyier’s screencasts (highly recommended, the guy knows HTML/CSS/Wordpress upside-down), I ended up purchasing some hosting and domains so I could install the whole WordPress package and toy with it.
Instead of going straight for my new blog I took the time to create a site for my girlfriend (she’s into education and needed a site to advertise her services) which is Aulaestudi.cat (in Catalan), and a little personal project, queordenadorcomprar.com (in Spanish), a pc-hardware site mostly for toying with SEO. This helped me understand WordPress, SEO & SEM a little bit better.
Now, after working a little adapting the standard WordPress’ “Twenty Eleven” theme into something that expresses myself better (I like the “wireframe” look… I was thinking about subtitling this blog as “My life as a wireframe” for a while), I am ready to start blogging again. There’s a lot of stuff I have learned lately, and a lot of exciting UX-related stuff going on, so I will try to write shorter articles but more often.
So, stay tuned for more updates very soon!
