Brainstorm your favourite personal website design and content ideas
If you are anything like me, you love design elements from each of these personal websites.
So grab a good old fashioned note book and pen (or jump onto an equivalent digital note taking tool that you love) and jot down the design elements you love most.
Assuming you are going to create a fairly simple website in the first instance, you won’t be able to use all of the ideas you have seen. So take some time to prioritise the ideas you like from most to least. You can always add new design ideas to your personal website over time.
Where do I start?
You don’t need to spend a fortune to develop a personal website that is professional and compelling. If you have a little cash to spend, consider heading to Fivverr or 99Designs to find someone who can help you.
