Trying new hobbies/activities has always been something that’s enjoyable to me. Right now I am taking online classes for Web Design. I purchased Adobe’s CS5 Master Suite for the program which is more than I needed, but the more you buy, the more you save, so I took the plunge! Plus I have some extra time on my hands right now to learn some new skills. It’s been very exciting learning Photoshop, Illustrator, and Dreamweaver thus far. Photoshop has probably been my favorite, as I have edited many pictures, in some cases making it look like I have an expensive camera, or just mad photography skills. In addition to the courses I am taking thru CSUSM, I have found that Youtube and Lynda offer excellent tutorials on all of my Adobe programs.
One of my favorite web consultants is Mike Locke. In one of his Youtube videos, he highly recommends anyone that is getting into web design to have their own blog. Currently, as I research available web design jobs on the market, I find that many posts require candidates to have experience in WordPress. With that said, I’ve done a little research, educated myself on the program, and in conclusion to my very first blog, I have to say that I am very excited and looking forward to my new hobby of blogging with WordPress.
