Version 2 – 2007
That first site was starting to drag. While it got me started, web standards were changing and the site would not render properly on certain browsers. Mostly because it was using Frames and Tables. It was time for a new approach. I switched the hosting to Dreamhost, a big professional hosting company that had a lot to offer. The site was built on the WordPress content management system that was being used by professional developers around the world. Blogging was all the rage and creating content was the thing to do.
The downfall of this site was the increasing importance of cell phones. No longer was it important to just have a good looking website, now it had to be “mobile friendly” and function well on cell phones. Still technology advanced and there was need for websites to be “responsive” and designed “mobile first”.
So by 2016 I could recognize that my site was aging and would soon need a makeover.
