After months of hard work and above all a lot of thinking (that really hurts) and changing my mind over and over again, it’s here … my new website. Almost three months ago, I wrote: “my website sucks” and it did … big time. So I’m really happy to announce the birth of my first real site and I would like to thank all of you for your input. It helped me a lot on deciding which way to go.
The biggest thank you should go to Sille who designed and programmed the site from the ground up on the WordPress platform. The new logo was made by Shiva. Both had to be very patient with me, but did incredibly well.
I’m aware that there are still some minor bugs and typos in there. And I would certainly appreciate your input and remarks on the design, usability, navigation, … I’ll be taking some time off but when I get back into the working mood, we’ll examine all the input and make the site even better. Ideally a website should be a living thing to me and I think I have now a sturdy platform from which I can keep growing the site.
During the whole process of building the site, I’ve learned a lot and I will share it with you in a couple of weeks.
One of my main concerns for the new site was to show the pictures big. After all, taking pictures is what I do. You will have noticed that the blog design also has been changed to allow for way bigger pictures. There’s still a lot of unfinished pictures on my hard drive that aren’t ready to be shown. So to test out the bigger pictures, I’ve just put up some impressions of Oslo on a soaking wet day (the day before the Oslo workshop).
I hope you like the new site and like I said before: feel free to comment!
