WebJeda is a web designing company based in Bengaluru. Designing beautiful responsive and functional websites is our passion.
My name is Sharath and I’m the author of this blog. I had no plans to turn this passion for web designing into a business. But when you love what you do, why not do it for living?!
I have created this blog to help web designers to get started in the right way. Most of my content is on Jekyll blogging platform which can be used as a website builder!
I built WebJeda in 2014. I realised how easy it is to design websites using proper tools and knowledge. This blog would be a beginners guide for web designing. The first thing you notice on visiting my website is that it is minimal. I believe more decorations lead to distractions. So you don’t see any bells and rings - only content. The second thing you notice is that it is fast. Because of constant optimization and again no ‘bells and rings’.
As a web designer, one has to give attention to appearance, performance and accessibility which involves good looking template, website loading speed and ranking on search engines. I have discussed these aspects extensively in this blog. A website is designed not for the company but for its users.
I write things I have tried. It takes a reasonable amount of time to research, test, and test again on other platforms. Writing a tech article which deals with coding isn’t easy. It involves a lot of hard work. How do I get paid for this? I run Adsense on this blog.
I suggest you to use an Ad-blocker if you don't like those Download pdf, Click to Download kind of ads. As a reader, I don't like ads. Let me know whether I should keep Adsense running on this website.
There are a number of ways to reach out to me, a few are in the contact page.
