My website is nothing amazing. Or even great. Really not even good. In fact, it’s been an embarrassment to me for the last couple years; that is to say, I feel that it is not a good reflection of my work. That being said…
I am so freaking tired of seeing, in letters about 300px tall, the word “Hello” or “Hi”, on the home page of designers’ websites, usually followed by a period (.) and a sentence like “I build websites.” To show an example, I’d have to single someone out, and that wouldn’t be cool, because maybe the person I’d single out wasn’t being a follower, or even worse, thinking that they were being ever so clever.
If you don’t know what I’m talking about, it’s not worth your time to figure it out. This just annoys me for some reason. I don’t know why. I copy things that I see all the time if I think they are cool. But I officially declare this uncool. And, while I’m at it, the word (or words – I’m not sure) douche bag is also off the market. It was funny for a while and often quite fitting. But now, too many people use it, and the age of people using it has just gotten out of hand. So goodbye, “douche bag.”
What use is it to rant on about something so stupid as this? None, really. But it gives me something to do while waiting for my wife to put down little Natee – after which we will continue our second run of Lost – since my attempts at creating a personal website design have been so futile. Why is it so hard to design for myself?
