Periodically I get the urge to totally revamp my website (not this blog, I am in loooove with this layout. I mean my main site, ealasaid.com). Sometimes I do it, sometimes I don’t. Mostly I don’t, especially the last few years, because holy god do I have a lot of pages and sub-sites now.
It’s hit again in full force, though, and for once I am sufficiently irritable/tired to really want to just nuke everything from orbit and start fresh.
It’s a weird sensation for someone as dedicated to archiving and packrattery as me — I usually find myself wanting to hang onto my old fan sites, even though I haven’t updated them in about a decade an find their ancient design rather embarrassing. Now that there’s the Internet Wayback Machine, though, my inner archivist is far less clingy.
It’s a lot of work, redoing a site. But given the economic climate, having a spiffy personal site for potential employers to look at is probably a wise idea. Since I started using WordPress, I’ve been increasingly impressed with it, so there’s that, too.
So, yeah. This blog isn’t going anywhere (though I have a feeling my intermittent posting schedule is likely to continue to be erratic as fuck. Subscribe to the RSS if you want to make sure you don’t miss new posts!), but ealasaid.com is in for a major facelift.
