In 2019, I began redesigning my portfolio. But I quickly grew frustrated as I could not find the practical answers I needed. To overcome that, I completed an audit of over 85 portfolio websites. The results helped me make informed choices in the redesign of my own portfolio, from the title of each page to the choice of images. I continue to frequently modify and optimize my website based on my findings.
After earning my Mobile Web Specialist Nanodegree from Udacity, I have a greater appreciation for web optimization and performance. And I’m able to make those changes for my own site.
I am very happy to report that the design of my site consistently returns audit scores of 90-100 on Lighthouse, including a score of 95 on Accessibility and 100 on SEO. In addition to the design, I frequently make tweaks when possible to further optimize site performance.
