First Blog Post
What's This All About
I meant to start the blog off forever ago but never really got around to it because I've been working on various other parts of my site. I've got a lot to write about if I want to get everyone(no one) caught up on what I've been working on and what this site/blog is about.
Two Main Purposes
The first purpose, and most relevant to this blog, is to practice and hopefully help others learn HTML, CSS, and soon Java Script. The second purpose is to show off my artwork and photography, and maybe sell some if anyone shows intrest and I can figure out how to. To be 100% honest im fully expecting no one to ever read this or even visit my site, much less be interested enough to buy my art so thats pretty far down on the list.
I am currently still at the begining of my coding journey, and though Im decent with HTML and CSS, I'd like to improve and also add more skills like Java Script and Python to my tool belt. To do this I plan on making this site more advanced as I learn more and also adding links to projects outside of this website for anyone to see.
I coded SpearsGoode.com from scratch in HTML and CSS using no website builder, and I have saved a couple versions that will be listed on the archive page after it is built. The purpose of this is to show the progress of the website at various phases so anyone can follow along with my progress or see how it got to where it is. I will also be adding a how I learned what I learned page to the About page so anyone can see what resources I have used to get where I am.
Show Off Artwork
The final but possibly most important reason for this website is to show off my artwork. Its possibly most important because had I not wanted to show off my artwork, I never would have started building this site and discovered that I loved to code. I feel that art should be given to make people happy so feel free to download any of my art. Just dont pretend to be me, and if you dont give me credit and get big becasue of me, I'll find you
What About This Blog?
This blog will mostly pertain to my coding progress but may also consist of some stuff about my art if I find a reason to. For now my blog posts will be serving to catch people up on what Ive been up to over the past year or so when I started getting into coding. After I'm all caught up I will give progress updates on how the site is going and what I'm learning. It may also contain tutorials and various other things.
