About a year ago I got my own domain name, flyingabalone.com. I signed up for a fancy webhost, squarespace.com, I launched my new website. There were many things about the Squarespace software that were great, and a few things that I didn’t like so much. In particular, the way that they handled photographs. My issues with it wasn’t really enough to make me stop using the service or anything like that.
A few months ago Squarespace upgraded their software and greatly improved the way images were displayed. But to upgrade, you had to completely redo your website. Ugh. So I put it off. I took another look at it a few weeks ago an decided I should just jump in and make the change. So I did.
I haven’t gotten all the pages reconfigured from the last site and some things like older post on my blog will have funny and inconsistent formatting. I was going to try and get all that done before I launched the sight but then I though the heck with it. I’m not a business so it doesn’t have to be perfect. I work on it as I can and just go forward with what I’ve got.
The photo slide shows should look a lot better. Go to the menu bar above and click on “art” then click on “Russell Rogers” or “Art on North Franklin Street” and check out the galleries and see what you think. Also, try clicking the “Like” button on the bottom of my blog post. I think it has FaceBook beaten by a mile!
The photo up top of the Prima Pils case really has nothing to do with this post, but it does make the tedious task of reconstructing your website much more enjoyable.
Let me know if you have any problems or comments about the site.
