Hey there, welcome to my blog. If you don’t know me yet, I am Antony Agnel, a web designer based out of Chennai, India. I have been blogging since 2016 and playing around with WordPress even before that. I have got experience in content writing, search engine optimization, and social media marketing apart from the usual stuff. In 2015, I took a break from my college life and dived into the WordPress ecosystem after I couldn’t cope with the ‘monotonous life of an engineering student in India’ syndrome. It was stressful, and I badly needed a break. That’s when WordPress happened.

I started spending more time with WordPress – taught myself the basics and the rest with experience. I kept building and breaking websites to learn the ins and outs of WordPress. I don’t know how to code but I can find my way around WP. It was at that time I decided that WP was going to power my future. I dropped out of my college and enrolled myself in another university which accommodated my interests and gave me time to spend on other activities. Thanks to WordPress, my life became better and I am happy because of that. WordPress was my ray of hope.

At my workplace, I am responsible for managing hundreds of event websites. Other than that, I optimize them for search engines and promote them on social media. I also help people build their personal blogs and business websites; websites which are well optimized, don’t take ages to load and are user-friendly.

Basically, I’m an introvert and my personality type is ‘ISTP-A’ (The Virtuoso). Just the thought of starting a conversation someone can drain my energy and I like to spend most of my time in front of the computer. But it doesn’t mean that I don’t hang out with people. It just takes time and once I’m comfortable with you, I will make you regret bringing out the real me (just kidding 😉 ). I like surfing the web and promoting the usage and adoption of free and open-source software like Linux, WordPress, and Firefox.

I started this blog so that I can reach a whole lot of people out there and share my knowledge with them. Ever since I realized I could make money from my blog and help others to achieve it, I have been constantly learning, experimenting, and sharing blogging tips and tutorials on the web. I didn’t stop with blogging though; I started designing websites for individuals, small businesses, and organizations to further expand my knowledge and experience on the art of designing websites and writing content. Click here to get an idea of what this blog is all about. You can also view my web design portfolio if you’ve got a minute to spare.

In my free time, I try to help people out in the WordPress.com Support Forums and create random designs which can be found in my Designer by Chance blog. My dream is to land myself a job at Automattic, the company behind WordPress.com, WooCommerce, Jetpack, etc. If you ever felt you found my posts or designs helpful, you can consider buying me a coffee to cheer me up.
That’s all for now! 🙂

  2. This blog looks clean, neat and really easy to read! Love the layout and your writing style.
    Would love to have a friendly chat over coffee but that’s not possible as I think we’re in different parts of the world. Thank you for stopping by my blog and somehow, that gave me a much needed push to begin writing again.

    Looking forward to seeing more of your posts 🙂

    1. Hey Clarabelle, thank you so much for taking time to leave this valuable feedback on my blog. I’m glad to hear that you loved this all-new clean and clutter-free look. Even though we are separated by time zones, we are always connected through the blogosphere. By the way, it’s so great to hear that I was responsible from someone to start writing again. I’m taking that as a compliment!
