When I created my website cliffjamesphotography.com many years ago I added a Blog / Diary page to keep an online record of events in my personal life, my work with Ms Harrison Marks, Kane and of course my BFF Teresa May. The website I created was a template based one and over the years it has become a real pain in the proverbial backside. The main pain has been that the font style colour and size for no apparent reason, images would show correctly in the WYSIWYG editor but become misaligned when published and displayed differently in different browsers.
Two weeks ago I received an email from my web-hosts TSOhosts informing me that they were discontinuing what they referred to as the Legacy Website Builders and would be terminating them in 60 days. At first I was horrified and to put it mildly cheesed off. That said, it is a well known fact that nothing is forever and that you shouldn’t, as I did, put all your eggs in one basket. There is also a saying that every cloud has a silver lining and that is true. Thankfully I had already been creating websites using WordPress so all was not lost though it was and currently is a pain as I had many sites to recreate.
For all the issues with the template site cliffjamesphotography.com I knew I would miss it so I have decided to recreated part of it especially the Blog / Diary posts on this website. My plan is to create a post for each post I made in chronological order starting at the very beginning which was 2012 – I know this will take time but little by little it will get done.
I’m sure there are lots of people out there in the wild wild web who will be pleased to see the site go and will be dancing in the street but hey ho. More than it hurts me to say this… Who cares… I’m here now… Still here and I’m not going away.
