As you read my blog, you might wonder why I’m credible to blog about “Building a Better Website.” In fact, I’m wondering the same thing. Part of me hopes that someone will read this and feel informed, and the other part of me (most of me), hopes that I will learn how to build an effective website.
Way back in 7th grade, I took a class called “Create.” When we weren’t building straw towers and answering riddles, we were learning how to code with HTML. At the end of the year, we had a competition to see who could build the best website. As the only student with responsive tabs, my teacher picked me as the winner✌🏻
Fast forward to my Freshman year of college, I took computer science (because I had to) where I relearned how to HTML code. For my final project, I created a website about fun places to visit in Athens, and I got an A!
Those are literally the only websites that I have ever built, so you might think I have no business writing about websites.
Here’s where I attempt to prove you wrong:
Over the last 6 months, I have analyzed over 750 websites for an advertising agency. One of their biggest clients is a multimillion-dollar mattress corporation, and it’s my job to analyze retailer websites who offer the corporation’s products.
Throughout the course of this blog, I plan to discuss what I’ve learned analyzing mattress websites and apply my knowledge to any type of website.
