It’s a common held belief that people like talking about themselves. I’ve told my story so many times, though, I’m a little tired of telling and hearing it. If you want to know more about who I am, what I’ve done and what I do, check out the About Me page.
So, about the new site. I was advised a while ago to update it, but just didn’t have the time. I was so busy, which I suppose is a good thing. But the old site was beginning to look dated and I was getting embarrassed to send it out. My recent work wasn’t even uploaded, so it was getting a little useless. So, I carved out some time during a family vacation and finally got around to it. I was a web designer in the past and designed and coded my last website, but there are so many platforms, browsers and devices out these days, I just didn’t think I could tackle such a huge endeavor with my limited time. I resisted using WordPress because it felt a little like cheating. But after looking back on the hoops I had to jump through to get my site up and running (mainly because of IE6), I decided to give WordPress a try.
Thank God for WordPress. Their theme made a major overhaul much easier and faster. And it’s already tested, so if something doesn’t work, they’ll fix it. I sound like an ad. Sorry… But it’s true! What would have taken a couple of months has taken a couple of weeks and that’s only because I had to get back to work. So, thank you WordPress.
When I started looking into using WordPress for my new site, I didn’t think I would have much use for the blogRoll. But after giving it some thought, I realized I have sites I visit on a regular basis that others might find useful. So I included them along with the sites of clients, friends and people I admire and whose work inspires me.
The next post will probably be about my experience editing Indian wedding videos. These are spectacular cultural events, full of color and artistry. They often last for days. So check back in a couple of weeks. In the meantime, you can check out the highlights videos I have uploaded on the Videos page under weddings.
