    Default Also finally started my first portfolio site...

    Took some time, but thought I had to make one... Not completely where I want it to go, but once I got time I'll start hacking in Dreamweaver or Joomla and make it really how I want it to be For now I used Wordpress (inspired by Jax's post ) to set-up a simple portfolio site. I also didn't go all fancy on the imagery yet (I will add some own work to 'personalize' the site) but for now it should work.

    oh euh, the link: link (name & URL still TBD, but for now it's hosted on my companies domain, and I need to find a decent name for my artistic stuff first

    cheers!

    Looks nice, man.

    That's great looking DJ. I wanted to have a cool background like you do but I didn't see an option other than selecting a basic color. I don't know if it is because I am still on the free version of WP or if it's the theme being rather simplex.

    I did notice you have a missing letter in the first paragraph where you say "think I can manage his now". You lost your "t" out of "this". I don't know how particular you are about that sort of thing but if you are like me you'll want to fix it. The only other thing I see is the links are a little hard to read. They are light gray on gray and actually become much easier to see AFTER you have visited them, which might be backwards.

    I'll be keeping an eye to see what new things you add in there, you certainly have a lot to choose from. Oh, and I'm excited to hear you are doing another map along the lines of your Sinisteria map. I just love that piece!
