I have personal Tech Blog maintained at adityasridhar.com. Would be really happy to get your feedback on this :)
I think you should re-create your logo image because it looks like it's a little fuzzy compared to the sharp text in the rest of the header.
The tiles have categories overlaid as pill-buttons, but they're inconsistent in their order ("programming" is before "web development" on one and the next is the other way around) which makes it a little harder to scan. They're also difficult to read against the lighter parts of the background pictures.
If you added a little margin under the header or some padding around the logo then I think it would look better at smaller breakpoints. At the moment it's a little cramped:
Thank you for the feedback. Will definitely make these changes :)
I like the fade in for the images! I would make the tags on them easier to read, and I'm not sure if you need the header image on the page! I also may do a big image for your latest post so it is super emphasized. I like it!
Thank you for the feedback :)
Will make those changes.
Also is it necessary to have a separate portfolio and blog site?. Or is it fine to have them both in the same site.
Totally up to you and what you're trying to do! My portfolio is mainly for speaking and media engagement at this point, so that's why I have one.
Thanks for the response. Will think about this. For now planning to have them in the same site
