Lurking on the web…

So, I have been on a little hiatus — unintended, in all honesty. I expected to post on this blog at least once per week…and well, all I can say is that I had the ‘best laid plans‘, but it did not quite shape out the way that I expected. Anyway, I am all set to push out a marathon of blogs, so here goes!

The graphics online are so cool these days. There are so many websites that I find myself on for hours and hours. I thought about why some websites are more interesting than others and through learning about the different components that go into making a website appealing, I landed on the practice of UX Design, also known as User Experience Design.

UX Design is all about making your website look pretty in a nutshell. Making the components of your page attractive and understandable to the viewer so that they know where to go, click, hover over, scroll or stay put on a particular page of your site.

Other than taking special care to consider UX practices from the front-end and back-end, a cool website must be mobile responsive or adaptive.

Be engaging.

Be informative, a.k.a. have a purpose.

Did I say cool already?

I think I did. But anyway, you get the point. Also, if you are a retail website, you have got to make your e-commerce initiatives count. That is, your website program should consist of flash sales, subscription models, and some type of loyalty program.
