Hello World: welcome to my personal brand

Hello, and welcome to my site

I decided to create my personal website for a few reasons:

  • My personal brand is important to me, it reflects who I am and what I do
  • Resumes are bland – an online presence helps me to convey more of my personality
  • Hold myself accountable for the ideas and knowledge I share
  • An opportunity to learn new skills

I began with a simple website domain/builder combo and soon realised it would not achieve what I wanted. I upgraded to a reputable host Siteground (GrowBig plan) and set about learning how to create a WordPress website from scratch.

My websites are built with OceanWP theme, and Elementor page builder. This is a common combination with heaps of resources and extensions available.

It has taken hours of YouTube videos and article tutorials to learn each aspect of web design. I’m progressing through tools such as page optimisation, SEO, Google Analytics, Google My Business, and now moving into digital marketing and hopefully content creation.

Since I have unlimited website hosting, I’ve created three more websites for my family 🙂
