WebWeaving

A lot of my time the last few weeks has been involved with the revamping of the FF&P website. Shameless plug here –> http://www.romance-ffp.com. It’s definitely been a labor of love. Liz Pelletier (the absolutely amazing back-end programmer that she is) and I were forced to take something that clearly has not been updated in ages and turn it into something new. By its very nature, FF&P has to be a dynamic site – authors are always coming and going, books are being pubbed, membership changes and so does the content…and it’s impossible to do by hand. (Not and keep one’s sanity, anyway.) Thankfully, Liz was willing to work her ass off, learning a new language in a matter of weeks and completely restructure the back end of the site. My own bits aren’t nearly as impressive. Making things look vaguely appealing isn’t as hard as it sounds. And truthfully, function should always come before form. Any application can look brilliant but if it’s broken then there really isn’t much point.

So major kudos to Liz. These days, having someone who’s willing to put things on the line for unpaid and thankless jobs (and oh my, the hate email when stuff wasn’t being updated fast enough…*eyeroll*), is such a precious thing.

    Looks beautiful! God, I need a Liz in my life. I’m revamping my Blog site, but the whole creating of a website is overwhelming. And I’m not all that Techie, lolol!

    Online Chapter, even…I might be joining you there.

    Looks like I’ve missed a few of your posts. Sorry about that. Between the tornado ripping through the property, clean up, writing, the blog, and the normal insanity of life, I’ve been MIA a bit of late.

    Hee. No worries, Sia. 🙂 Everyone does what they can, and I can’t say I’ve ever had to deal with a tornado, so kudos to you too! 🙂

    And yes, website creation *can* be overwhelming, but it all depends on what you want to do. Basic things aren’t too bad, so if you have any questions I’ll be happy to answer/help. 🙂
