Rebuilding a Website (or: See Horses, Read Stories, Learn Stuff)


I’m undertaking a big project this month, although most of the change will happen slowly, at some point there will be a dramatic shift in the design of this blog. Why? Because I’ve realized this web-home exists for three reasons: See Horses, Read Stories, Learn Stuff.

Right now the design of this blog is really all about my own ability to find things I’ve archived in the posts.

Want to know how many colors I’ve painted Breyer G2 Scrambling Foals? There a category for that.

Want to see how many blue horses I’ve painted? Oh look, there a tag for that!

How about monthly accounting posts from 2012’s small business adventures? Have a tag.

Or learning how to play World of Warcraft on a treadmill? CATEGORIES AWAY!

Soooooo, yeah. I am relatively certain no one uses an of these nice shiny ways to hop around the blog other than me (if Google is to be believed). Which means it’s time to pare things down to the three core reasons anyone would stop by these hallowed halls.

So for 2014, it’s going to be a bit easier to See Horses, Read Stories, and Learn Stuff.
