I have to admit that I’m not completely ready to publish the new site just yet. I haven’t been working on it lately, but most of it is done. I have a few more things to update, write, and review before I can bring down the old one and publish the redesign.
Many of the things will look familiar, such as the organization. Differences include the new method of posting my web logs and the overall look. I’ve also decided to remove many of the family photos from past events. I may just add a couple of pictures to my blog instead, so people can still see them on occasion. I did decide to keep
The other thing I’m currently working on is a new computer maintenance article. I recently sat in a “mini-course,” where the instructor was really on top of much of PC security. But rather than add to the PC Security article, I decided that a separate article would help differentiate between security and cleaning. The new article will be published with the new site.
One thing I’ve been struggling with is creating an automated blog system. If I decide to pursue using XML to publish my blogs, it won’t occur until sometime next year, and I plan to set it up the way my friend Jason (jasonbock.net) sets his up, including breaking articles out possibly by month and giving them permanent links. In the meantime, I will continue to keep it broken out in quarters for the remainder of the year, and previous years will remain in their current format.
My updated target date for the new site is December 5.
