The Queen City
Posted on May 1, 2016 in General
So to start this post off, this is my new site and since you are reading this, that means it is now live. I suppose I can use this post to first and foremost set the tone for the blog. At this point my intention is for it to be a place where I can more or less “bookmark” development and design related articles, resources, etc. I constantly find that I email myself links to these articles promising myself I’ll go back and read/re-read and I simply never do. I plan to use this blog as a way to sort of force myself to read these articles or go a little more in depth than I usually do and hopefully that results in more learning and a better understanding.
The other purpose I would like this blog to serve is sort of a WordPress hub. I’ve been theming for the past 6 years and building plugins for my own use and for employers for the past 3 years. I’d love to share some of the little useful snippets I’ve come across and will continue to come across. After all the WordPress community is all about sharing anyways. I have chosen to allow comments. I am always learning and hope to communicate with anyone who reads this blog. Feel free to use it, and let me know if this helped you, or correct me if god forbid I am wrong about something I post.
So, that being said, I’d like to start sharing right now. The theme for this site, was both designed and developed by yours truly. Most of the imagery however, is from free stock photo sites, and the images of Charlotte were taken by u/geekwcam of the reddit! community. In the spirit of sharing I will be adding this theme to the WordPress Theme Directory and it will be available for download for FREE! I have chosen to name the theme after my new home, Charlotte, North Carolina. You can find the theme by searching for “Queen City” in the theme directory when it is ready.
Anyways, thats all I have for now. My plan is to get more involved with the WordPress community and the web design and development community as a whole. Although this is my first theme I will release to the WordPress community, I certainly don’t intend for it to be my last. I hope I can share my knowledge and maybe point some people in the right direction who may stumble across one of my posts.
