Whew! Two weeks of having one’s head buried in computer code is enough to turn one grey-er… but, hopefully, it was worth it.
The purpose of the upgrade was to make all the sites more navigable (easier to find your way around), to make them all look a bit more 21st century, to give them more ‘brand identity’ and to improve their ‘search engine optimisation’ (to make it easier for people who would benefit from the information on our sites to be able to find us).
We now have five sites (plus our Skinsmatter site which has yet to receive its makeover) but we hope that they are now set up in such a way that you will be able to move around them without being aware that you are actually doing so. There are, inevitably, still things to be done (pages and pictures which will not look quite right as the size/shape has changed etc) but we hope to sort these out as we go. However, if anyone notices anything that they think could be improved, we would be delighted to know about it.
PS While on the subject of our web presence…
In case you are wondering about the new pictures that appear every two weeks at the head of the blog, they are all pictures of various bits of my garden – plus ginger Boris, fluffy grey Frodo and tabby Mushkin…. I am hoping to be able to be able keep them up through the year as the seasons change… Today’s is my herbaceous patch with my lovely delphiniums, of which I am inordinately proud, this being the first year I have ever managed to grow them. The pretty little red flowers on the left, if anyone wishes to know, are Salvia Hot lips.
