Are you looking for feedback?
Yes, and thank you!
If so, what is your intent with the website?
This is one of two projects I'm working on. This site www.failuresart.com
purpose is to replace my old blog http://theregoesourhero.blogspot.com/
. I will be slowly bringing select content over from the old blog after rereading and editing. Also, I'll be putting up similar content in terms of theme: Essays and journal style entries.
Will the site header always be that large?
Yes. I think you're referring to the the site and not the graphic I posted a few weeks ago. The graphic will always be large, and may even be a little larger. The banner will serve in many ways as a piece of content itself as I plan to update it frequently with new graphics for fun. The colors scheme (of the background image) may change with the season as well or be adapted for a given holiday.
On the Home Page, will the large photo of you always be on the left with text in the narrow column on the right?
Perhaps. The home page is always going to serve as a welcome of sorts and I may use the space to put some sort of featured content. I'm trying to move more and more into video production with my site and so I may keep the most recent video posted on this page with information on upcoming projects etc.
You have the Home tab and and Essays tab. What differences in content will be in each? Do they feed each other with current content/archive of old content?
The Home page is static. I have to manually update it. The essay page is more of the "blog" page that content normally feeds into. The home page may also have some special elements placed on it such as twitter feeds or photo albums that are constantly being updated. Some content, I don't want a user to have to track backwards in the blog part of the site.
You have a Vlography tab. I assume that is where you will store your video blogs. Will there be transcripts of them on your Home or Essays page? Will there be descriptions of them in your archive list so people will know what each is about before viewing?
Good idea on the descriptions! I may try and add thumbnails or some sort of graphic as well.
Hmm, just clicked on your tag cloud and was redirected to your Essay page to read the post there. When I clicked the Home tab, I got this error and have repeatedly gotten it:
Error establishing a database connection
Don't know if that is because you were editing the page or what.
Thanks for the catch. I tried to reproduce this error. What browser are you using?
