That’s right, next Wednesday November 16th marks the 6th birthday of truthinourtime.com and roughly the 1st birthday of the forum.
So I felt like with birthday season the time was right to spruce things up a bit. I’ve had some technical issues throughout the year, both here at the website as well as the forum which has left it in a state of function of form. Truth be told I haven’t been pleased how it has looked in some time but having to prioritize my time that was just the way things go. So suffice to say I changed the theme and added a background, I think it’s a nice touch and a little more polished than the previous theme.
From the get go I’ve tried to constantly improve the layout visually as well as to make the site more intuitive and easy to use and while the pace of improvements is far from steady, certainly the trend is in that direction.
It will certainly come as no shock but 2013 has been by far the slowest year for me here at the wordpress blog. Due to a variety of factors one being my primary focus is the forum, I think in many ways that’s the future. It is much more naturally engaging, easier for others to post pictures and videos and have their own dialogue and reach a wider audience. Ideally I would like to post all of the reposted stuff into the forum and have the blog as original content only, but that’s down the road. Between technical issues and putting much effort into promoting the forum it has left little time for me online to write as I would like to here. Couple that with 2013 also probably being the year that I’ve spent less time online than any in the last 5 and you have a slow moving blog.
So stay tuned for hopefully more original content and if you haven’t already swing by the forum (truthinourtime.com/forum/forum.php) it’s something I’m very proud of, already after 1 year it’s a tremendous resource and a truly great group of people there I certainly couldn’t have done it without the members there.
