It’s only been forever since I updated my own site, and my how things have changed. When I assembled my team of reasonably priced and deadline oriented web designers, I stopped creating websites for clients.
Of my friends who design, I was one of two lone holdouts who design with Front Page, the much maligned Microsoft product. Dreamweaver had been the industry standard. Since I purchased a new iMac, I created a PC side so I could continue to use my favorite PC software. But I could not find that Front Page disc anywhere! Little did I know that Front Page had long been phased out. (By now I was primarily blogging anyway, while my own websites remained unattended. ) Not only that, there are many industry standards that have changed and along with it there is a new alphabet soup: CSS, asp, PhP, and the list goes on.
I searched high and low and tried many options. So far, the best I have heard of through my various gurus is WordPress.org. In essence, this site is my second attempt to use WordPress. The first is www.DrKwaku.com.
A word of explanation. I have many WordPress blogs. But, you can also use the free templates at WordPress to create static websites which are not predicated on blog posts.
For me, a website has always been a brag book, but now it is my portal so that I can do all the things I enjoy–in one place: Show my pictures, videos, writing, music, audio interviews and even live remotes via UStream. If you remember my name, you can get there!
And that, my friends , is what you will see here as the development continues…!
