I’m at it again. It is once again time to give schlagging.com an overhaul.
Thanks to the guys over at This Week in Tech, I’ve been turned on to a hosting service called Squarespace. Squarespace provides a very user friendly interface for maintaining websites, and I’m absolutely loving it.
No longer do I have to edit html / php / js / css files on my computer, upload via ftp, and click refresh to view changes. I can now literally click, drag, and drop to get things done on my site. There’s a learning curve, but it really is quite intuitive.
With the new technology in place, I’m ready to evolve my web presence just as the web evolves itself.
Gone are the U of A butt shorts (don’t worry – they live on in the favicon, and you can click here to get your fix). I think the new background says a lot about who I am.
Gone are the old blog archives. I’ve got a copy of the database backed up, but I see no reason to keep them online. There wasn’t much substance on a consistent basis, and other sites like facebook and twitter have given me an outlet for linking to things and microblogging.
So what will I end up doing here? I’m still not sure. I’ll figure it out as I go.
