Another day in the life of… Erik Briones

Content is King

leave a comment »

We have read that before. In the world of Web Design, Content is King.

A “lightbulb” moment came to me just a minute ago. And I thought I would share it with you.
I believe that people, in the context of web design, do not mind scrolling or clicking to the next page as long as the content is worthwhile.

Sorry if this is going to be just a short blog, well, this isnt supposed to be a lecture, but just an insight.

For example, you visit a website and you see a two-paragraph legal “documentation” with all the definitions on the homepage. And on another website you are greeted with a picture of Kurt Cobain, and you see excerpts of his life, his music, his band.. and you have several links to click to get to more information about him.

If you like Kurt Cobain, surely you would read them all, than those 2 paragraphs from the other website.

Well if you are concerned about how safe is your browsing, then you would choose website #1.
