Spring Cleaning – of the virtual kind

I’ve been updating my website, again. As I scrounge through many years of re-builds and image archives, I see there is a pattern to the activity at my site, which has been online since 1995 and under my own domain name since 1998.

There’s usually a re-design or upgrade of some sort in the spring, a flurry of activity, and then a drop off (while work and life take precedence) until the cold months of another winter. This time, I’ve returned to WordPress for the site engine. In part, because I am managing a WordPress community site but, also, because I currently believe it is the best solution for a personal website. I decided to design the site using the Weaver template because it is so easy to use (read: fast) and I want to show off its flexibility to others.

I am a little happier with this re-boot than some because I’ve also decided to clean-up and consolidate some of the writing and blogging I have done since 2001 into one place. Many of these other site’s life-cycles have ended but there are bits of, if not enlightening at least nostalgic, reflections I’ve decided to keep.

Getting the Portfolio gallery together is one of the more difficult things, always, because the insecurities creep in. But, I shall labor on.
