To be honest it is quite difficult to provide feedback as there isn't that much to go on. I would say on the, what i presume is the mobile view - add some padding around the about paragraph as it is currently very close to the edges of the viewport. Also maybe find a way to distinguish the navigation links more as currently I am finding it difficult to immediately see them.

Thanks. I know there is not much 😅 Thanks for your feedback. Can you suggest something to add? Is it better to have colors or keep it plain b&w for blogs

Color would be one way to suggest to visitors that something is interactive - which might make the navigation clearer.

I would say it might be worth collecting some examples from your favourite portfolio websites – focusing on one kind of element at a time, for example:

- Navigation

- Body text

- Images

- Headings

- Layout

If you gather 3-4 screenshots from different websites for each kind of element, you can then decide what styles you like and borrow the ideas for your own site. This will take longer, but it's probably more useful for learning in the long run.

I've no idea if that was clear, feel free to ask more questions :)

Also these might be helpful in explaining the 'why' of different aspects of visual design:

The links go to the color pages but it's worth spending a lot of time reading these. There's a lot to learn here!
