It’s been a while since my “professional” website has had a touch-up. This month, with my latest transition to new job (more on this later) and other areas of my life starting to improve, I figure it was an appropriate time to give it a bit of an overhaul.
First off, I had growing concerns as the years went by that I was maintaining a personal website and not a professional one. My previous sites went on ad nauseum about my job history, my interests, my educational background, and what I was up to on social media. Those are all important things that create my identity, but I am trying to focus more on developing my professional identity. Namely:
- I want to blog more about what is going on in my career field.
- I want to emphasize aspects of my career development instead of just my educational background.
- I want to expand on dance/fitness and how they are important to me.
- I wanted my new site design to be whimsical but not childish.
I will also be starting my new job next week, which I am extremely excited about. Finally, it feels like I am moving forward with the next step in my career.
