Learning new things in Web Design

In 2018 search engines made it mandatory that you needed SSL certificate on your domains. Otherwise, if you didn’t, the search result would say:

Your connection is not private.
Attackers may be trying to steal your information from domain (for example, passwords, messages, or credit cards).

Back to safety.

If you knew the website was safe, you would have to click through and be like, “Yes I understand this website isn’t safe.” I think it also effected your SEO in some instances too.

The SSL certificate is a good thing! Originally I knew it was necessary for e-commerce sites so no one could intercept the information easily. Proper corporate e-commerce websites have them too.

I decided to switch my domains around, learn more about Github and the version control side of things. I moved the blog over here to Medium for now until I decide where I want to put things blog wise.

I tried looking into Ruby for Jekyll, a static blog solution, and I don’t even know. I have never delved into any programming languages like that and I think my brain short circuited trying to figure it out!
