Hello World!

Reading time: 2 minutes
Heads up: this post may contain some out-of-date content as it has been a while since I wrote it. Apologies for that.

Hello, and welcome to my new website. I've been working on this for the last few days in my spare time and I'm happy to finally put it out there for whoever wants to browse it. This site uses Drupal 9, Bootstrap 5, CloudFlare, and the ever-so-amazing Amazon Web Services for hosting. I did have a Wordpress site up beforehand, but found that Drupal just has more power behind it that I'm accustomed to.

I plan to mainly use this website for blogging and to host a portfolio of my work. I'm heading back to university in September, after a wonderful 14 months being an intern at the University of Edinburgh as part of an industrial placement, so posts will most likely be a little sparse while I get back into the swing of things.

I've also put up a contact form here for anybody wanting to enquire about any freelance work. I'm hoping to get into a bit more freelance work to hone my skills and to find a more fulfilling way of earning an income as opposed to the atypical student job. Please feel free to submit any queries, or forward my site onto people who may be interested, and I'll do my best to get in touch as quickly as possible.

To close, thanks for reading this quick post! I hope to do more with this site over the following weeks/months and hope to make it a little bit more interesting.

As ever, feel free to get in touch with me on my limited social media listed below and keep safe :).
