Hey, folks. So, while Kavi naps on me (the better to ensure long sleep :-), I started working on the new web page
. This is very bare bones right now, but what do you think? The bits in the center are just placeholders until I can talk to Jed and ask him how I can get much larger excerpts from the journal there -- in fact, I think what I'd ideally like is something like what Gaiman's got on his site
, where the most recent entries of the journal are just right there, on the main site. When people scroll down to the bottom (maybe 3-5 entries worth), then there'd be a link to take them to the regular journal page with the rest of the entries.
Anyway, what do you think? The colors and all are still just the basic Dreamweaver template, and the links don't do anything yet -- right now, I'm just working on layout / organization, etc. Any of this that you think doesn't belong on the front page of my site? Anything else on the site that you think should be more prominent?
And is it weird to have a photo of me *and* Kavi on the front page? It's certainly not typical for an author site...
Also, should I put the smuttier covers on the front page? Are they too explicit, given that people may come there looking for either my academic stuff or my kids stuff?
