Website Launch !

Herding Pixels website is out there in the world now. Post feedback, questions, etc. here. There's still much to do: accessibility checks, SEO, attributions, W3 validations - plenty to keep busy with. But I wanted to get it out there.

Since the focus of Herding Pixels is to help small business owners get more customers to view their site on mobile phones, this site will serve as a laboratory of sorts as I learn more about getting traffic to websites. The digerati out in the Bay call it "dogfooding".

Herding Pixels passes Mobile Check!
Google is a tremendous resource for all things web development, so I'll be leaning on them on which improvements. This blog will track the progress of the site. The first milestone passed was the Google Mobile check. This is what I'll be using for the free website audit that's up on the site. Next up is the speed check. Need to get this up into the 80's. There're some hefty stylesheets that are holding up the show, and I need to figure out how to have them not block the browser from drawing the page while they download.

Only a 52! Need to get this into 80's!

So tune in next time, and watch our intrepid web developer battle the speed demon !

  1. I've started converting my site to use Angular2. I know, it's kind of overkill, but I needed a project to hack on.
