AJonP – Rebranded

AJonP – Purr-fect Solutions

Something was a miss with my old site, I just couldn’t care to ever update it. I was bored by trying to constantly fight with WordPress issues, updates, plugins…At the same time I was hanging around my favorite Slack channel Angular Firebase and Jeff mentions he is building an awesome CMS with Hugo, called fireship.io.My initial thought was I am an Angular developer, why would I go back to creating static sites, are people ???? ???? crazy!?!That is when it struck me, all the complaints about setting up SEOOpen GraphTwitter CardsAngular Universl and having a good version control with a small footprint for a PWA could be solved with using JAMStack.

Let the fun begin

The Mascot

So I jumped in (probably head first and too fast), I decided I wanted something to represent coding. I always meant for AJONP to mean Alex Jon on Programming. But I started sketching things out on my idea notepad, and had a basset hound wearing an Angular logo collar. I showed it to my wife, she said, why don’t you make it a cat, since we have a cat.

So I shifted left and started trying to learn some basic Photoshop skills to make the Cat named AJ. I learned very quickly that I should apprectiate designers more because my logo is pretty rough, but it works for now ????.

The Youtube Logo Sting

I did some digging about creating my own YouTube bumper, which I learned is called a “sting” and purchased one from Videohive. I edited a few things by adding my logo and some basic title/colors.


Try less, learn more.

Now after having done all that, Jeff had it all made simple right here and I missed it!
