It has been a year since I launched this site - a blog, portfolio and social portal all in one. I sincerely consider building my own website an accomplishment. I was no web geek but did some study and practice, and of course Weebly made it easier. When my previous blogsite hosted by Multiply shut down a few months ago, I appreciated having my own site all the more.
Thank you for taking time to look around and see the posts and photos. Weebly has a cool feature that tracks your site statistics and it's also available on their iPhone app. The stat's out : 58,503 unique daily visits for the past 366 days (remember, 2012 was a leap year).
To mark jersandel.com's first year, I made a complete overhaul to the site. After some tweaks and renovations, it's finally done. Here are the before and after look :
Old look :
The new and current look :
Still a dark theme but simpler, complete and easier to navigate. I like it. I hope you like it too.
And oh, a couple of days ago I installed Google Analytics to give me better insight about online traffic. It's a bit complicated but I like what I'm seeing so far.
I have plans to introduce new sections here, definitely I'll be able to start on at least one very soon. For now, I welcome you once again to my new-look site.
Thank you. Cheers!
To those who "liked" this site thru their Facebook accounts, thank you so much. I don't (and won't) have the guts to ask people to like something for me, but I put a Facebook like button on this site's homepage. Getting a hundred likes would have been enough to tell me that at least I'm doing something right. But getting over 1,400 likes so far? Unbelievably heartwarming. Again, thanks.
Rush of Blood to the Head
We all have something to say. If I get the rush and find a keyboard, I blog mine. Anything and everything under the sun. And stars.
