    IMPERFECT TITLE | Erik Tireland :eek:

    I've been polishing this website on and off for a good month or two now. At some point you just have to say it's good as is :)

    The blog post introduces you to the purpose of my portfolio/blog website as a whole, so if you go ahead and click the link you'll get some more information. I'd love to hear feedback on the post content's quality, clarity and the website's design. I am completely new to blogging and just publishing scribbles and thoughts, so a first glance feedback means very much to me :)

    PS: Most project pages are empty awaiting content. This launch is mainly for the blog since it starts a couple of weeks before the project content drops in.

    I like the overall look and feel -- very clean, easy to navigate. And I know how you feel about having to pull that trigger and put the site out there for people to see (I've been steadily working on my author site for a week now, trying to reach that point).

    Quick question for you, if you don't mind my asking -- what plugins are you using for your social network buttons (both the share links and the links to your social sites)? I'm trying to get those added to my site and haven't found ones I'm completely happy with yet. Thanks!

    Thanks for the feedback :)

    The social media buttons in the footer come from a widget plugin called 'Vantage Social Media'. My Wordpress theme is a reworked premium one, so not sure if that's available to all WP sites. The buttons at the bottom of every post and page is part of the 'Jetpack for Wordpress' plugin. Hope that helps :)

    I've got 2 new blog posts up (one of which is How I Prepare for a Project) and I just published my facebook page. It's funny how such a simple thing can also be the scariest thing you've done in weeks, if not months! :)

    Twitter's up and running now as well, and if anyone would like a follow trade I'd be very much interested in that. Twitter's not really that big here in Sweden, and barely half a dozen of my Swedish acquaintances use it :)

    So make a note here, or simply follow me and you'll get a follow right back. It would help me out in the start-up and I would appreciate every little bit of it :)

    Concerning Villains

    I just published this short article/blog post, and I'd appreciate some feedback on it. Does it work well in a blog/portfolio environment?
