Current - http://www.baweaver.com
Revision (That I need to finish after these code challenges) - http://www.baweaver.com/v3



For revision 3, I'm not design expert but I think the "The portfolio of Brandon weaver" just takes up too much space. I'm also not too big on the font choice. I would of also made the footer area span the entire width instead of in a "container". Just my 2 cents

@no2 - check out http://www.oocities.org/ and see if you can find it. I found my hold high school site from 97 on there.

I submitted the site to the archive team. I also backed it up for my own personal safe keeping.

I had a personal website but I mostly found that I don't have interesting things to write or say, and I'm not really big on writing tutorials and hoping people will read them.

Instead, I think my strategy is to put code online, build my github profile, and maybe have an HTML resume on github pages.

If anything I build becomes worthy of a dedicated site, I'll worry about one then. Kudos to those of you who have the patience and drive to maintain a written presence.

My work filter blocked your link for "Sex"...

It is very unsexy. Perhaps it might even be the .dx in the address.

I have one up right now:

https://curtisrutland.com/

Basically it was an excuse to learn how to use Bootstrap with ASP.NET MVC4, and some responsive design elements. The template is pretty much vanilla Bootstrap.

Thinking of adding a blog to it.

I've been trying to pick up some extra work here and there. I also had http://www.belindawallis.com which didn't have the "business" stuff, for when I was looking for work, but now it just redirects to bollis.

I founded the coders lexicon and there you can even buy my project ebook if you are every shopping around for a project to do over the summer or for school.

I generally find that it's a good way to demonstrate your skills these days, as everyone has a web browser, and it's much prettier than looking at a document which everyone and their uncle can write up, it's better to stand out, and what better way to do it is by creating your own page, to demonstrate your skills, it shows you have practical working knowledge (Unless you used something like wordpress) and you deem it viable to pay to show your services as you obviously have to pay for a web server, therefore meaning that you think you yourself is worth showing off. In my opinion all these traits show a great level of commitment :)

Here's mines:

I done mines on my hosting companies website, and I also matched a QR code with the URL on my business cards :) thought it was a nice touch.

Clean and simple ;). I assume you intend to (soon) remove your direct email-link.

@andrewsw, I had not worried about this as this is an email that is only for this site. Why would it be an issue?

Harvesting email addresses from web pages has always been a favorite technique for building spam lists. The people who do this don't do it manually.

Though I prefer it manually.. I mean that's how my fore fathers have done our spam collecting all the way back to the old country! Some traditions are worth having if, for any other reason, to provide a sense of collective identity.

So it is better to just add the email as text instead of a link?
