A Few Content Updates

I just wanted to leave a quick post about a few content updates that I have finished for webnelly.com.

First, after launching Maui Wall Candy, I added information about the site to the Personal Portfolio section. While I was making changes there, I decided to go back and update/finish details for all the previous sites in the section, making it a little be more expansive.

The second update is for the Professional Projects page, which was one of the more recent additions to the site. It features some high level information about projects I have worked on in my professional career using a range of Microsoft technologies. I thought it was somewhat worth mentioning because it is almost the other end of the spectrum with technologies I use for sites in my portfolio. I sometimes like to call it my double life.

The Professional Projects page currently lists details of 18 projects that I have been a worked on in the past 7 years. It covers three different phases of my career so far: when I started as a developer, my 3 years as a development manager, and most recently going back to the lead developer role.

Lastly, I added a Contact page as a link off of the About Me page. I wasn’t feeling very inspired to write the form logic myself, so I decided to put up another EmailMeForm as I did for Maui Wall Candy (which wouldn’t allow me to write my own form handler).

Next Steps

One of the final pages there that really needs my attention to finish is the Technology section. While my initial goal was to maintain a list of technologies I’ve used on the first page and link to more detail pages with examples for each, I have had a hard time finding time to get that specific. I know content is king, but I might start with a prince instead and just have the details and links to examples on the first page and come back to add the details later. I can probably add a few new links to the Links page as well.

Also, with my recent work on Maui Wall Candy, and with looking at various people’s photography portfolio sites, I was inspired to start my own. It’s going to feature details about my recent interest in photography, gear and software I use, and where to find my photos. Right now, the two main spots are Flickr and Maui Wall Candy, but there is a few opportunities to branch out my photos into more places as well.

Stay tuned.
