Introduction and table of contents
In this series of articles, I’m writing about my ongoing quest to build myself a personal website –some sort of portfolio in the broadest sense– from the very start and ‘in real time’ as I move along with the process.
The whole endeavour might take quite a while —fingers crossed for a release in 2022, so if you’re looking for the following parts, there’s a handy table of contents at the end of this article. And as always; If you have any kind of feedback, I’m all ears, just shoot me an email.
After bringing back this blog and having a lot of fun filling it with content over the past year, one of the projects I like to tackle in 2022 is the relaunch of my ‘regular’ personal website.
I haven’t had a portfolio website for years now –literally, the last iteration has been offline since around 2013– and I wanted to address this shortcoming for a while, to be honest. I’ve actually collected some basic conceptual thoughts as well as bits and pieces of writing already without doing anything further with it up to now, but I believe I’ve finally reached my Popeye Point ¹.
Usually, the creation of my personal website would be something I’d work on very secretively –not least because of the presumably rather slow progress and the possibility of this project even not leading anywhere eventually, but instead, I’m going to try and document my process openly this time. It’s an attempt to keep better track of my inspiration and archive the thoughts and ideas related to lucasrees.com more thoroughly.
The articles of this series are going to be titled ‘in progress: lucasrees.com’ to make it easy to follow along with the development which is undoubtedly going to take some time. Additionally, this post will act as a table of contents and will be updated accordingly down the road.
