Website Changes Continue

Bit by bit, I’ve managed to get my old website ported over from HTML pages and a Blogger-based Journal to this new site. Thanks to the help and patience from my awesome server-gnome, things are starting to come together. I still have a lot to work on, and I need to squeeze it in sometime between work, sleep and working on a mural design.

Here are the items that still require attention:

  • The Portfolio. I need to go into the template documentation and figure out how to get the images to actually show up.
  • Theater section. I’d like to add links and photos and info on past productions.
  • Old blog posts. This may take a while, as I’d like to go back and add images back in to old postings. I could also categorize things and add tags.

Things are Changing

I‘ve decided to make the switch from Blogger to a new WordPress site. Please stay tuned, as it may take a little bit to get things ported over. The good news? I’ll have a portfolio again. Also, all of my knitting patterns will be available on one page!

Updated blog

After seven years, it’s time for a bit of an update. Now that I can post images in my blog, I no longer require a separate photos page. My portfolio desperately needs updating so it’s put on the shelf for a while. And of course, this page has a new home, due to some Blogger/Google changes.

Weekend Update

I spent Friday evening and most of Saturday working on the redesign for this site. I got a lot done, but I still have the portfolio section to do. That section will be a fair amount of work. Perhaps I’ll just put a “coming soon” note up until I’ve got it done. Not only do I want to do an overhaul of the layout of the portfolio, I seriously need to update the content, which is probably about 7 years old.

Saturday evening I headed out to Jay & Lisa’s and enjoyed a lovely BBQ’d steak dinner. We watched Up and the first episode of Season 3 of the BBC Robin Hood (where I seriously wanted to take a pair of shears to Guy’s hair – and I’m normally fond of longer hair on dudes). It’s was the first time any of us had seen Up and I was glad to have finally had a chance to see it. It’s not something I’d own though. I thought the parts that were touching were really well done, and there were some really cute/funny moments, but they did go too far over the top with the dogs that could fly planes. I’m sorry, but my suspension of disbelief will only go so far.

Sunday was a quiet day in. I cleaned my apartment, made stew, and then watched the Golden Globes. I normally don’t like cleaning on weekends, but I’m hosting Book Club tonight. I’d picked Girl With A Pearl Earring by Tracy Chevalier. It’s only 250 pages and was a book I quite enjoyed. In 2003 they made a movie based on this book, starring Colin Firth and Scarlette Johanson. I’ve rented it so we can watch it. I wonder what people thought of it. I hope I can fit everyone in…

Plans to revamp this site

I‘ve been meaning to update this for a while but it just hasn’t seemed to be much of a priority. Now that I’ve got a wee break from theatre, I will have the time to give this site a little bit of an update. I think I’m going to remove the photos pages (back when I built this you couldn’t put photos in a blogger feed) and I desperately need to update my portfolio.

I spent the evening looking at WordPress as an option but it just doesn’t seem to be a good fit for me at the moment, so I will stick with the format that I do have for a while yet.
