• Code – Theme status: structure

    So far I have been experimenting with adding theme options to my theme for when I get ready to actually share the theme with the WordPress community. I have the basic file structure that I want to be using for themes down the road. It is of course HTML5 and I’ll try and mess around […]

  • Code – some random javascript conditionals

    Warning: what you are about to read deals with code. Working with PHP is fun for me. At times it can be a pain but I still love it. One thing that I have been trying to find is an AJAX media query for loading certain stylesheets when the viewport is at certain widths. I […]

  • My WordPress theme

    I finally, finally got the ball rolling on what will be my theme and theme structure for this site! I am so excited about this. After having read so many posts about templates, CSS, OOCSS, SaSS, PHP and just about any random acronym you can possibly think of I finally have a name for the […]

  • Keeping WordPress on my mind

    With WordPress being a great blogging software some people often forget that it can also double as a good CMS. (Content Management System)

  • A new direction

    Sad to say and write that I haven’t really been working on my Bachelor’s Degree in well over a year. Why? Part because I haven’t looked at other schools that I would like to attend online and the other part is because I have thought hard about what it is that I really love doing. […]

  • Making some progress

    Slowly but surely I am making some progress about how my site is looking. Don’t get me wrong I like the look at the moment but I want something that is very simple since it is just my thoughts and nobody elses that I am writing about. The next phase will be expanding the theme […]

  • My blog site

    This blog site has been a great thing for me. I have learned so much about myself by actually writing about my thoughts. It has opened my mind to how I really feel about life and the world around me. I have been experimenting more and more with web design and development. I can’t wait […]

  • Parenthood – The journey begins

    Parenthood is a never-ending journey and every day is a new adventure into making mistakes while trying to keep some sanity. Parenthood has no rules, guidelines or even a reference guide but it is still a great thing to be a part of. I entered upon this journey on June 7. Okay not entirely but that was the day my little boy, Salvador, was born so I will count that as the actual day the journey began. I will add more and more pages as time goes on and I get time to share these little life lessons.

  • Understanding JavaScript prototypes

    Working with jQuery has been a really crazy journey these past few weeks. The biggest hurdle has been understanding how it all works. Little by little it has all been clicking in my head. Reading several articles about what jQuery is and how to use is has been a good enlightenment for me. There are […]

  • Wireframes and mockups

    What are wireframes? Simple. Wireframes are a bunch of boxes, circles and lines that when combined together create a skeleton of what will eventually be a finished product. Call it the chicken wire to a sculptor, the rough sketch to painter or even the Lego instructions of the X-Wing. But why? Why not? As a […]
