I'm new to this. I've dabbled in web design and coding for a while now, toying with the idea of starting my own website (and subsequent blog). Two things prompted my eventual decision to start this website. The first: I got a real job, making real money. Web hosting isn't expensive, but it's certainly a frivolous expenditure for a shallow-pocketed college student. By making $415 odd bucks a month as an RA, I can now afford the (luxury?) of a personal website and blog. The second? Oh, mostly the fact that my life is super interesting. You'll hear more later.
