18 Nov Travel Blogs and Web design

Well it’s finally done, I am Launching the new Tell Them I Said Something! After designing Sarah’s site and being quite happy with the result, I became somewhat disillusioned at the ugliness that was my previous blog.

In an attempt to make a design site and blog in one, it became apparent that the vision I had for the individual aspects of each did not gel well, hence the mess that used to be “tell them I said something”. So I took the time to build two separate sites and could not be happier with the results.

Now I have eyepudding.com, my new web design, graphic design and art site, and this here travel blog your looking at right now.

On top of that I have re-entered the world of Facebook and created a page for this blog, and one for EyePudding. It is funny how much social media technology can change in a few years, and I have gained a deeper appreciation for the old people refusing to get into the whole tinternet revolution thing.

If you have a look around the blog, you may notice an attempt at humour, no, those mini-mes in the header aren’t actual photographs, I wish I looked that dashing in traditional dress. I decided to go the humorous route for the blog because most of what I write, has at the very least, a humorous tinge to it, and occasionally even garners a giggle or two from the people and bots who stumble across it.

The Homepage has had a much needed face lift, and uses a couple of sliders, one for recent stories, and the other to show off some of our pics from the photography page. I also included some maps so if anyone has a hankering to read about a certain place, bob’s your uncle, there it is!

I have updated and prettied up the photography page, and will continue to refine it when Sarah and I eventually go through the forty odd gigabytes of travel pics we have strewn across various hard-drives and computers.

The About Mwah page shows my more egotistical side, displaying my oversized head as a most definitely not worthy Jesus (or hey-zuse as they say in Mehico).

And I urge you to visit the Contact Me page for a snapshot of my glory days as a professional dancer.

All in all I really like the outcome, eyepudding.com still needs a bit of work, I think it could be a bit tidier and more intuitive, but both gave me a chance to flex my web design muscles, and reminded me why I love to create things.

Oh and on top of that, I saw ancient Mayan ruins, scootered around mountain villages in Southern Mexico, and swam in a waterfall, but all of that’s for the next post.

This is after all a travel blog, so lets get cracking!
