looks pretty good. one UX thing I noticed is that the entire list item in your sidebar should probably link to the page, not just the link itself. that way you can click in the empty space around the text and still be taken where you want to go.

thaks your are right about that I need to make the side menu clickable

Congrats! I hope you would succeed, im kinda like you but just starting out, been in php development.for a year, now.working as an email marketing developer, maintaining vps servers, but I really wanna do design, I still lacks skills though. Anyway, your resume is pretty good! But I doubt they accept treehouse like online school type? Maybe add links to your.site, you got like 76 projects there.

Thank you..

Hi! Wow, yeah I was also hesistant, but thats a good point, I might continue subscribing here if really theres points on it. My thinking was that online courses are good if there are only certificates. Thanks for the tip!

Tab in things under the headings to make it easier to read. Use bullet points or hyphens instead of "*". Use a heavier bold for headings to create a stronger hierarchy. Limit your colours to three to make the overall colour scheme more fluid. Use a dark colour for the background of headings and light colours for the body to create a visual hierarchy. Maybe use more padding around the headings to give the text more space to breath.

One line that you should change would be "Used a DSLR camera to upload products images to the site"; maybe split in to two stating your experience with DSLRs and how you have experience managing a online retailer. Also a direct link to your portfolio is a must!

Sorry if this is a bit too critical. Best of luck!

no it's cool.. if I put it up is because I want to see what people think

also reason why I didn't make the portfolio an anchor is because when you see it in a email it will become a link anyways.. also it does have bulletpoints but for what ever reason when I put it on my site it looks like * but on emails it looks proper

For a critique: On your resume page, I'd look at adding some padding around the text in the lists to create some space from the edges.

The blur effect is interesting, but I think it causes a problem with the images on the blog page. It felt like the images weren't loading properly until I realized I could hover over them for clarity. If you want to showcase the effect, then use it in a portfolio example on a separate page.

When on the portfolio page, the link to Resume is missing from the Nav bar.

On desktop sizes, you should have the nav background stretch to the bottom of the page unless you wanted it to be a small inset on the side, then I would round out the bottom left edge like you did with the top left.

I like that you have a responsive design that scales down to mobile, but you might want to look at scaling down the text and images for those smaller screen sizes, although I do like that "Design is a way of life" stands out.

In regards to the home page, you might consider a smaller introductory paragraph to flow with "Design is a way of life" with examples or an explanation on why you feel that way. Then add your personal story to an About Me type page.

I hope this helped and I'm sure whatever you consider from these and other comments, you will come out with something great that will land you some work.

Thanks for sharing and I wish you all the best!

Thank you yea there's so many small bugs on the page that I have to go over them this weekend. N yea as far as the resume it has it's padding when I email it but for whatever reason on my page it don't show. But thank you, you really went into the site and checked every page I really appreciate that because I like to know about other users experience. I wish there was like a site to help critique others design... Hmmm maybe I'll build that
