Well here we are, in my new online home - what do you think? No, don't answer that, it's not finished yet.
For a start, I need to make the navigation a lot clearer. It is there - wave your mouse around at the top of the screen - but it needs to be a lot more obvious.
Let me back up a bit: I'm building a website as part of a larger project. I'm planning to make and publish videos, write a blog, and probably some other bits and pieces as well. The website will be a central hub, where the various bits are gathered together in what will eventually be a clearly organised way.
Being something of a control freak, I don't want to use ready-made templates, no matter how good the design. I want complete control of what goes where and how it's presented, which means doing things the hard way. I'm dusting off my rusty html, learning the new bits that have been added in the eight years or so since I last created a website (shout out to w3schools.com - an awesome resource!) and getting to grips with a new content management system.
I'm also designing the site as I go, and as you see, I haven't got much in the way of content yet. In spite of this, I'm publishing now because that will encourage me to start focusing on finding something more interesting to write about, rather than endlessly fiddling about with the design details, trying to get it just right before I move on. You might not want to stick with me for this stage, but I hope you'll pop back and see how I'm doing from time to time.
