CSS, PHP & jQuery
Just enough to be dangerous …

Hand-Crafted
I have built this site myself
with a premium WP theme,
CSS, PHP & jQuery.
Here are some things I learned:
  • Wordpress is great! But if you're
    particular about how things look,
    choose a theme wisely, or hire
    a web designer. Or both.
  • I got better at CSS. The main
    breakthrough skills for me are
    specificity, media queries, and
    pseudo-selectors (:nth-child).
  • jQuery is a nice tool, but it takes
    a lot of practice to create jazzy
    effects without slowing down
    your website.
  • My most time-consuming tasks
    are responsive design and writing
    high-quality technical content.

Why I Love
WordPress

WordPress is more than just a blog platform, it's a full-blown Content Management System (CMS). You can build any kind of site you want.

There are high-quality plugins to do just about anything:  backup, security, eCommerce, opt-ins, page builders, photo galleries, etc.

Auto-Scale
Feature

It seemed simple enough: I didn't like the way my site's pages looked at higher non-mobile resolutions (1600 x 900, 1920 x 1080, etc.).

So I sized elements in CSS with em or % instead of px. Modifying the theme CSS took a while, and then I started adding plugins. Yikes!
