Been thinking about all the things I need to do on the site and, of course, as I’m thinking of that, other possibilities keep coming to mind. The visual redesign of the site is going much faster now and hopefully that will be ready before the end of August. Once that is done, the addition of content will go much more quickly as my mind won’t be so preoccupied. Here’s the latest look to the redesign (just slightly different from before):
I’ve been thinking especially about the pending Magnolia Vale section (no, I haven’t forgotten about you, Bonnie ). It’s going to be a fan section and is intended, if you’ll recall, to contain fan fiction, artwork, silliness, and other things like that. I’ve been thinking about how to best set it up and have been considering the possibility of setting it up in a blog format with a number of people having rights to post there. Not sure if there’s an interest there or not. And I’m being hampered right now by the fact that I injured my right hand in a freak dumpster accident (don’t ask) along with the fact that I’m taking some courses and am just trying to get through my work day without killing someone.
Anyway, I might start a poll to see if anyone has any interest in that type of thing (a communal blog type thing).No comments
Thought you might like to see a sample of what the new site design is going to look like…
Some details of it might change before I unveil the whole site but that’s pretty much what it’s going to look like. It’s less, um, colourful than before (the whole site is pretty much the new, natural tones instead of the old separate colour scheme for each section) but the pages fill the screen and there will be added information in many sections, to make use of that new space.No comments
Looks like I’m not going to make my self-imposed “first week of September” deadline for uploading all of the changes/updates to the site. Converting the pages is taking a long time, due to Real Life constraints like work and sleep and the fact that I keep finding new content to add while I should be finishing up the conversions. Right now, I’m being sidetracked by reading up on the life of Lorrae Desmond and updating her biography page. Wow, what a life and career she’s had. Hardly know where to begin. The biography pages are taking longer than I thought they would as well because I keep finding additional obscure information (that probably no one but me will care about but what the hey!). Not to mention the photos I have to work on and the brand new content pieces like the tour and the articles. I need a clone.
Anyway, my aim for the first week of September is to just have the converted pages uploaded. Then I can work on the content with a clear conscience.No comments
