I would love to have the time to pull my whole website apart and rebuild it, however it grew extremely complex over the years and I just don’t have the time or patience.
Most of my energy goes into blogs, Wikis and online magazines, now – but as I hope to help Julie make a website I have become interested in web page design and building again – and writing for screen.
I tend to overwrite, and need to trim my words brutally, for ‘busy’ people (or short attention span browsers) - make it punchier. Web Writing That Works
Before I tackle Dreamweaver, however, I have started using one of Google Lab’s beta experiments for making simple websites - Page Creator (examples below).
Inevitably, I am copying and pasting a certain amount from the old site…but trying to be ruthless.
The old website
The first shock is just how much stuff the site contains!
- I pulled out the Star Wars and film work stuff and put it here.
- I started to pull together all my writings and creative projects here.
- I put my Tutor Profile online as an efficient cv (resumé) – which is funny because the original webpage started simply as an online cv.
- I have started a WordPress site to experiment with clean, simple information delivery to go with tutoring - currently focusing on making websites
- Then there's the autobiographical aspect of it...(but perhaps that's going to turn into a book).
- and the family section...
- the Research interests (everything from whole systems to magic and mentalism)...
Without a site map I challenge anyone to find their way around the place. heh heh
