Charlie Jackson Website

This is my personal website that I tend to use as a landing page to find all my other profiles online and give a little bit of info on what I'm doing right now. Check it out at charliejackson.com.

I tend to keep this site super basic. It's not meant to be an example of my coding, more a short intro to me and where you can find out more. You can find the code on GitHub.

Came up with a few ideas for visually displaying my writing and projects

2020-12-07 - 2021-01-08

Started combining my journal and website together so I can show off my writing, projects etc along side my main website. Using Gatsby for the first time, which is a pretty cool library. As I really want to keep more content in files in markdown so they are really universal. Next steps is to make it much more visual, add a bunch of images, a project slider. Better navigation and discovery for writing and projects. And get my sketchbook image in there and browsable in some cool slider.

Wrote a script to validate the format of the project files and exports them and the writing as JSON so I could eventually make a pretty react site for showing all this.

Pulled all the content from the existing site into my journal repo. With the idea that that will take over as my main website. So I can show my "now" content but also all my projects and writing

This redesign was to redesign and add 3 new features:

  • Make it easier to update content
  • Signup spotlight to my email newsletter
  • Showcase my next comedy gigs

For this I did a super basic redesign, using Github pages to serve the site and added in the relevant new spotlights. I also gave the content an update to highlight comedy a bit more.
