I am stuck at layouting personal home page which intended to present me as software developer and R&D man.
I am definitely don't want geeky home page like famous https://www.jwz.org/ (scrolling green hexes on black screen as if you in 70') or typical professor at campus like http://www-cs-faculty.stanford.edu/~uno/ (with gifs as if you in 95').
Black on white, with some styling/typography, centered, with mobile view in mind it should guide reader about me, my projects, my articles, tips, cooking recipes, cats photos, my music scores etc.
I don't understand how to provide information on the page (which is simply links to actual information).
Should it be a links with short names like
cooking or long like
this is my tech blog,
my grandma recipes or short with explanation text like
My [link]2048 game[/link] AI implementation?
Should links be organized in single line or list or grouped into related sections?
Should I have TOC or sidebar or force reader to scroll down?
I made a sketch where I group links into 3 cols for wide screen and it looks bad and amateur (layout, we are not discussing colors).
Should I mark borders of sections and active regions or use just plain text, blue links and list circles?
Another my page I think have nice look:
but it doesn't scale well if say I have 10 grouping categories and 50 links.
