Hey, I'm Ashley, and I first learned to build websites when I was a teen, wrote my first program at age 15, and fell in love.

Life took over (bills, jobs, adult stuff) and I lost my way career wise... I'm 28-years-old now and learning all over again. Currently I'm focusing on WordPress development, which everyone seems to loathe, but I'm enjoying it so far.

Fact: I'm 4'11" tall and I wanted to be the Pink Power Ranger when I grew up. I'll settle with just being a developer but being a Blood Elf Paladin would be cool, too. o . O

Welcome. It doesn’t really matter if other people like it or not, as long as you’re learning something that is useful to you.

Hello Ashley!

Life happens but it’s great you’re making your way back to your passion. As long as we do what we love we will never have to work a day in our lives.

Wordpress I have not tried out yet but it is highly recommended by universities that are design and art based.

Good luck with learning! Any reason for choosing WordPress?

Also, paladins FTW. :)

Thanks, Andy.

Main reason for choosing WordPress is that I have two blogs and wanted a custom built theme with performance first then beauty. It seems like all the pretty themes available are resource hogs. I used to love building websites so I figured WP would be a good fit. We shall see...
