Hey guys!

I haven’t made a post in a while. I’ve just gotten caught up in life. Anyway, I don’t have much to update y’all on, but I do have some stuff.

I’ve been working on improving this theme and also trying some more advanced things with the theme. Most of the changes in the next update won’t be too visible on the front-end, but there will be some. I decided that the site needed more color, so I’m going to add some more splashes here and there. I think it’ll help tie everything in better. Also, there will be some more data displayed in the posts.

I plan on including comments at some point, but I’m not sure if that’s going to be in this update or the next one.

Anyway, that’s about all I have for y’all for now! Look for some upcoming updates coming very soon!

Hi y’all! My name is Eric Fortney. I started my web development journey around a year ago, but just recently started to dive deep into it and learn. Since the beginning of May 2017, I have taught myself Bootstrap, the basics of jQuery, some moderate amount of PHP, and now some beginning WordPress development. This theme you see right here was all designed and coded by me.

I was born and raised in Memphis, TN, but now currently live in Starkville, MS because I’m a student at Mississippi State University. Ever since I was little I loved anything and everything to do with computers. My very first website was one made in Photoshop and used Flash. That was probably around 7 years ago, give or take. I’m now 22 years old and I live and breathe computers even more now. Pretty much everything I do involves a computer in some form or fashion. Some of the stuff I do would be photography, Android theming, and gaming.

Anyway, my intentions for this blog are to just give people in my position something to read. I love reading about other people’s coding journeys, but the one thing I don’t see very often are posts and articles by people who are still really new and learning. Most posts I see are from people who have already become a professional developer, and while that is incredibly useful, I figured some people might want a different viewpoint.

Well, that’s about all I can think about right now. Feel free to follow/add me on social media and to check out my other website, which eventually will be merged into this one!
