There have been some changes here spurred on by completely screwing up my blog last Friday when I hit “update” and everything disappeared. It wasn’t really gone of course. But my backup copy made the day before wouldn’t work. (I couldn’t figure out how to make it work) Evidently, ignoring updates for too long was the underlying issue.
I had been intending a complete makeover anyway, and I’m very pleased to have pulled it off. I used this template for those who are interested in that sort of thing. I am SO not a web developer but I know what I want and it seemed that I could accomplish it using this template with all its options and customization capabilities. I still have to figure out many small things that I want to adjust. Definitely view this on a big screen for maximum visual effect. It works on all screens but some of the pretty bits drop out when you start to squeeze it.
There will be a ton of portfolio stuff and drawings and models added later (major eye candy) when I get the template right for that section. I also need a section to show off the press I get.
(my intention for) The overall feel of the site a sense of transparency, light and peacefulness (introvertism?) and to express my connection to Vermont and the seasons here. The background photos are from my own land and are what I see every day.
I also intend to set up a commerce section to make it simpler to sell my stock plans and perhaps even a section for clients to log in and download updates on their projects and see/pay invoices etc. I’ll probably hire someone else to set that up.
Keep checking in.
