Can I hire you for a freelance job?
Possibly. I don’t have a great deal of time to spare what with work and studies, but I would consider any job on its own individual merits. I’d prefer to secure a full-time position.
What are your Photoshop and Flash skills like?
If you’re interested in server-side programming, why are you using WordPress for this blog and not a custom blogging engine?
Why reinvent the wheel? WordPress is full-featured, mature and powerful, so it seemed a good idea to use it. Also, as yet I haven’t really made sufficient progress with server-side programming that I’d be comfortable writing a blogging engine from scratch, so it seemed better to go with WordPress, which will make it easy for me to set up and maintain a fully functional website, and integrate a blog into it to make it more interesting, rather than have a rather dull static website.
Can you point me to some other sites you’ve done?
Yes, my original website is at http://www.matthewdaly.co.uk/, however if all goes well on WordPress I plan to move this blog there in the near future.
