Woo!

I am aware that most of these are really horrible, and that I am virtually tightening a noose around my neck. But this is also an assurance that I have looked back on my sins of bad design and I am sorry for it, and that it probably  hopefully  shouldn’t happen again 🙂

First Post!… of my 100th Blog and Counting

So I’ve wasted Internet storage yet again upon setting up another portfolio blog. All the other blogs were written in different phases of my life (5 short years of freshman, sophomore, junior, senior, senior+1). So my designs and applications have been scattered throughout different blogs I keep starting (because it’s SO MUCH more fun hitting the “Start your new blog” button instead of the “Write a new post” button, oh the joy).

This would probably end up the same way with my other neglected tech and design blogs again. But, in an attempt to keeping it alive, I’ll only be posting screenshots and images here, which should be more effortless, and also so I could shut my mouth. Because after all, a picture is worth a thousand words – goodbye SEO.
