As you’ve probably noticed, we’ve been having some technical difficulties over the past week. We changed servers and we changed the format of the site. While the format may be invisible to the viewer, for us behind the scenes, there is a lot going on. It was done to make it easier to update the site on a daily basis.
What we’ve discovered is that changing a website is a lot like hiring a contractor to make an addition or renovation to your home. You get all the specs, the bids and you tell the contractor every wonderful thing you’d liked change. Everyone’s happy, plans are drawn up, and then the work begins. Suddenly you realize you’re in renovation hell. It’s like having a giant hole in your ceiling where a new skylight is supposed to be — only you find out the skylight you want isn’t available for several weeks — but the whole is already there. So, you throw up some tarp and hope it doesn’t rain.
We have some wonderful people working on our site, and they are working very hard. We hope you, the viewer will indulge us over the next few weeks and we get the site working perfectly. In the meantime, the forum is working and there are lots of great contests. The videos are up and there is plenty to see.
Next Monday we’ll have Mary Castillo, author of Switchcraft as our Guest Blogger – so please join in the fun.
Ever have something take longer than you excepted?
