Some Last Minute Changes

June 29, 2019 |  Categories:  Development  

Gahhh, I'm so close to publishing this website but there are still just a few things I want to care of before sending it out for the world to see. The most important of which is probably cleaning up all of my code. Don't get me wrong, it's not in a bad state by any means. But I just need to go through all of my files (especially my HTML templates!) and make sure that everything is concise, pret...

Nearing the Finish Line

June 28, 2019 |  Categories:  Development  

What a tremendously exciting day it's been! And it's not even 3 o clock yet! Much to my delight, I was able to find a quick and relatively straightforward solution to the image pathway issue I was experiencing with my Project model.

In today's development news, we're working with adding text animations to the home page. As I see it now, I'd like for the user to enter my site through a home page that features only my navbar and the stunning backdrop of Mt. Elbert in all its snowy glory. Then, after a second or two, the welcome messages will fade in over the background. I'd think I'd like to give the user the additional opt...
