New Vagabond Journey.com

The new Vagabond Journey.com homepage is now up. After a month of fidgeting around with this program and that program, of jumping on and off buses, a form and structure to the site has finally appeared . . .

So this weekend I put it all together:

I began screwing around with Joomla to make this site, and then I realized that did not need such a powerful tool to do my rather simple dirty work. At Caitlin from Yel Kaye‘s suggestion — and Travelvice Craig’s long term prodding — I used WordPress to construct the front portion of the site.

It seems to have done the job that I was looking for.

I know the WordPress system pretty well, so most of the work just went into aesthetic design and figuring out the nuances of the new theme.

This job is not yet finished — I know that I by the time I have this close to finished I will just want to change everything again — and I will be working on it little by little each day.

Though I do think that I have a rough form up which I will continue using for a good distance down the Road.

Please tell me what you think.

One of the most interesting things about websites is that they are perpetual works in progress. It is my impression that this is one of their biggest advantages over print media. Websites are ephemeral — ever changing, ever evolving, ever growing with the person who is their creator.

In this way, publishing website on the internet is akin to traveling the world:

The journey is the substance, not the destination.
