I completed that task yesterday and did a few changes this morning. It went so fast because I discovered a Pico.CSS, which is a minimal CSS framework that doesn’t require learning classes. Out of the box, you have a sharp-looking HTML site that is responsive and supports dark mode.
I love it. If you know basic HTML but don’t want to waste hours tweaking CSS, I highly recommend looking at Pico.CSS. Simple.css is another classless framework that I will likely try out for a future project.
I did make one addition. The first photo of me on a bike had an old-timey frame that I scanned in. I liked that look, so I created a CSS class that allowed me to apply that same frame look to the other photos.
My goal with the rewrite was to have a page that introduced me and not just a list of websites that I built. I also get alerts every month or two where someone with my exact name got arrested. I wanted to clarify that my record is clean and I’m not the alleged criminal should someone be looking for them.
Let me know what you think. MichaelAllenSmith.com
