  • It should load quickly. Render static from a CDN.
  • It should get to the point. Describe your skills and interests.
  • It should link to things you’ve written.
  • It should link to your profiles: GitHub, DEV, etc.
  • It shouldn’t be overly fancy, or generic. Make it unique but understated if possible. Going to flashy can really be a bad idea in web design.
  • It probably shouldn’t look like this

Plot twist: your website was actually an example of what not to do all along.

The fact that that website plays music when you scroll is the greatest and yet most terrible thing ever.

That’s a matter of having not updated this in years. I’ll get that updated soon, I swear!

I think in this particular case it works in your favor. Subtle and completes the picture =)

okay. One of the characters uses a similar line. I thought perhaps you were referencing the show
