Others: Theme Development with WordPress (Part 2, Second Attempt)

The title says it all.

While taking a break in posting about my Nendoroid and other figure and toy photography, I got back to my ‘old self’ again realizing that I still have this skill left in me. I have abandoned this skill a lot of times because of my lack of efforts to try hard.

I have a previously posted article about an introduction on how to create WordPress themes using the Bootstrap framework. So far, that article was very old and I decided to revive my long-lost web development skill.

Now, I will show to you the output of my work. This has took me over 48 hours to think, override, and analyze the flow of codes carefully. That includes studying, observation, and research.

Outside of the Anime and Figure Photography…

While doing other activities, sometimes my obligation to update is forgotten. That is why I was able to only post some few updates. There are some few activities for me to do besides posting photos on Facebook or Instagram. There is sometimes a time that I won’t be able to balance my time for some photography session. Here are some things which causes me to become lazy in doing figure photography sessions.

1. Family Activities

This is the number one in the list which I am facing. In some occasions, family will be always NUMBER ONE very important in our lives. If you are going to have an outing with the family, then go with it! If you are in the middle of your figure photoshoot or something, then set it aside first and try to enjoy with the family first! It is important to go bonding with your family for some time, since you won’t be able to do that stuff if they are no longer at your side. I do still remember the movie quote that says, “Family goes first!”

In some occasions, I am always with the family. If they are inviting me to join for dinner outside, then I won’t hesitate to join. This goes the same to outings and etchetera. All of these are scheduled in a timely manner.

2. Random Mind Stuff

Number two in my list is doing something that is related to my skill set. Did you know that I graduated from an IT course? Web design is my favorite skill. What I do is to design some static web pages on my own and all of these are hard-coded in Notepad or other text editor program. My really objective was to design a WordPress site and that site should be responsive and mobile-friendly. I have been trying that stuff over and over again, but still I was unsuccessful because I am just only up to designing web pages, and I have no client. Because if I have no client, I can’t create of what I call the web portfolio. And without it I can’t have a job.

Another random mind stuff is designing pictures using Adobe Photoshop. Somehow it is related to my skill because it allows me to create logos for web sites and other stuff. These pictures are outputted by my imagination and mind set.

Lastly in my random mind stuff is drawing. I like drawing since it was part of arts. I have never been successful in drawing of what I wanted, but I know that I should just try and try until I succeed.

3. Online and Console Gaming

Number three and the least is the online and console gaming stuff. I have been playing online games since then with my friends. Playing these kind of games is somehow repetitive for me because all you have to do is to challenge other players across your country and even around the world.

For console gaming, I recently bought a new handheld game console just only I want to play more games in a different platform. I know it is boring to be alone, but I was able to kill time and stuff by playing these.

However, playing can help us maximize our critical decision-making in real life. That is according to the research of a certain site or Facebook page that I have seen or read.

Ending Message

I know that these activities can be a hindrance, but I should take it because I must not focus only on one thing alone. I should give myself time to extra activities like swimming, biking, or even drawing some stuff. And that is to help me to become more socialized person in the society.

Soon, I will make another new change in my photograph session, so be prepared for it!

Random Stuff: Theme Development with WordPress

It is been a month since I have never posted a single post about Nendoroid photography or Photoshopped stuff— I am currently on a break. It is because I am doing some other stuff which is related to work stuff— the web designing. It has become my forte, though, and I have been designing numerous web pages for now, whether it could be static or not.

Below is the screenshot of my working WordPress theme, in desktop mode.

I have been learning in the theme development called “Bootstrap” in which it was used for some website development. From the picture above, I have used the Bootstrap in which I can have several dropdown menus.

In the second screenshot below, here is its mobile version (when the browser is resized into a small version).

As you can see above, the browser was sized to small size and at the upper right, you can see the button there. When you press it, the main nav menu will go down. This is how the mobile version of the website works.

Majority of the websites use this kind of technique— resizing the browser so that you will know that the website is ‘responsive’. Yep, responsive websites are trending as of now.

Now that I have learned that in our present time, mobile and tablet browsing has become more trending as of now. I know that many web developers will learn more and experience this kind of trend. As of now, I am currently developing a WordPress theme which will help me in developing a better and responsive web page.
