Where Have You Been?!

Where have I been is a better question?! I’m so glad you asked…

In the “woodshed” man. Getting it done.

I’ve spent the better part of the last month or so turning this logo:

this masthead into:

this magazine (from cover to cover):

and this website:

into this website:

I also had the “opportunity” to learn how to configure the site’s OSCommerce store! (Which actually turned out to be similar to other shopping carts and stores I’ve set up in the past, so it wasn’t too bad and overall I’m impressed with the features offered.)

As a whole, changing all of this stuff in a very short period of time turned out to be not as scary as I feared (had to happen quickly so there wasn’t a lot of time for fear!) and was a great opportunity to learn, expand my skill set and refine a lot of the things that I was dying to improve upon from the first couple of issues of Stunters Edge Magazine and the Stunters Edge website.

More detailed posts coming soon about various aspects of this redesign.

Thanks for reading!


New Website Added to Web Portfolio

February 9, 2010 by · Leave a Comment 

Just added a website redesign for Stunters Edge Magazine to the web portfolio.

This “news” style site is built in WordPress and features a rotating gallery on the home page that links to internal pages and FancyBox picture galleries within.

Another task was fully integrating StuntersEdgeMagazine.com with the social media platforms Twitter, Facebook and Myspace (click on the links to see integration) and setting up Feedburner for RSS content and Google Analytics for tracking purposes.
